Cupboards Galore and more

Jan and Mike O'Brien needed a new kitchen, but not just any kitchen would do. Both avid cooks with limited time at home, they wanted a space where a working couple could collaborate on meals. And because their plan called for opening the kitchen into the great-room of their Tucson home, the O'Briens knew they had to minimize clutter with at-hand but out-of-sight storage.

Make your house young again ...

A home glows with youth when it is first built. Decades later, the luster may have faded-- or fallen victim to a misguided "improvement" or two-- but you can bring it back, just like the six families whose exterior fix-up entries won top prizes in our Home Improvement Contest. (For specifics on porch size, scale, and detail, see "Planning a Porch" on page 58.)

Reblooming Irises

When summer's lush greenness gives way to the sunset hues of autumn, you'd expect the garden to overflow with asters and chrysanthemums. But irises? How did this flouncy flower of spring transform itself into an autumn beauty? Obviously, these aren't ordinary irises. These are reblooming irises, and they're changing the look of fall gardens.

Almost outdoors

Anyone who's ever pitched a tent or built a treehouse in the backyard knows the magic of a place that's almost-- but not quite-- outdoors. Work that magic at your home (and stretch out your summer at each end) by adding a room where warm sun, cool breezes, and wraparound vistas of the garden come "in" to meet you halfway.

Views of Blues

Blue is a big help in the garden right about now. It's a cool color-- the color of the ocean and swimming pools-- that can take the edge off even the most torrid day. Blue is calm and serene, which you most likely are not as you attend to the mowing and weeding that is almost a continual duty at summer's height.

Weekend decorating warming up a suburban home ...

Raising a family. Building a career. Just plain living your life. A lot of things can keep you from noticing that your decorating style has grown out of date. For Carol Kromminga, a new marriage helped open her eyes: It wasn't that her early 1980s contemporary home needed wholesale redecorating-- just some warming touches and reshuffled spaces. By tackling the projects over a few weekends as Carol did, you, too, can get a new style outlook without putting your life on hold.
