Reviving a Cozy Kitchen

A hodgepodge of appliances-- an almond refrigerator, a black dishwasher, a stainless steel range, and coppertone double ovens-- is part of what inspired Rosemary and Ron Allen to remodel their 1976 kitchen in Columbia, Missouri. After all these years, they wanted to start fresh with matching appliances. The Aliens also wanted to rework their kitchen's layout and freshen its finishes, giving the space a more efficient arrangement and an updated style.

The Hybrids Are Here

Electric cars have been on the minds of Americans since the oil crisis in the 1970s, but with the exception of far-out prototypes, complicated retrofits, and a limited number of production models, electrics have been mostly unavailable. Charging the batteries that power electric cars poses a problem since there are few "filling stations." That means drivers have to stay fairly close to their home-based charging units. But in the next year, both Honda and Toyota will offer new, super-efficient, ultra-low polluting cars that are propelled by hybrid combinations of battery-powered electric motors and small gasoline engines.5

When Illness Strikes

Midway through her junior year in high school in Williamsburg, Virginia, Nicole Curtis, an 'A' student and gymnast, began to feel uncharacteristically tired, even falling asleep in class. At first, doctors thought it was the flu. A week later, Nicole noticed lumps in the lymph nodes in her neck and under her arms. The next week, she had a blood test. At 16, Nicole was diagnosed with leukemia.

A Garden to Greet You

Planting a garden out front is a little like rolling out the red carpet. Your guests are welcomed along the walkway and deposited with a flourish at your front door. Ta-da! A front-yard garden also does much the same for you and yours, for that matter. After a long day (and this time of year they are getting longer), your yard can welcome you back, cheer you up as you exit the car, and help you on your way to hearth and home.

The layered look

Planting a 2-foot-tall Moonbeam coreopsis behind a 4-foot-tall Iceberg rose is kind of like placing your favorite footstool in back of the La-Z-Boy. If you can't see the flowers or the footstool, they don't serve much purpose.

Havens for hostas

Take a shade tree, plant a ring of hostas around its trunk, and here's what you have: a landscaping scene repeated in countless yards across the country. So why not try something different? Make a solitary hosta the center of attention, for instance. That's what Jim Fitterling did in his Kansas City garden with Blue Mammoth, a chalky blue hosta with grand presence (above). He placed it front-and-center, where a dark oak-leaf hydrangea and fine-textured ground covers emphasize this Mammoth's blueness, bigness, in-your-face assertiveness. Now, there's a hosta that won't fade into the shrubbery.

Chintz charming

Like kissing a frog and hoping for a prince, envisioning a nondescript 1979 builder home as a charming beach cottage took a lot of courage and imagination for Dottie and Herb Moore. But they puckered up and took the plunge. Take inspiration from their tale to create a happy ending for your home.

Staying put

In 1956, Alice and Frank Smith, then a young couple with dreams of building a home for their growing family, sent away for a mail-order home plan from Better Homes and Gardens magazine. They bought a lot, built the house, and laid the foundation for their future. Today, after 43 years, four children, and countless redecoratings and remodelings, the couple's idea of "dream home" has changed. So has their house.
