when daffodil meets daylily

Think of daffodils and daylilies as those all-important defining steps in the cha-cha-- one, two, cha-cha-cha. First one foot, then the other. First the daffodils bloom, then the daylilies. The first step sets up the second step. The daffodils prime the vista for the daylilies.

Adding by dividing

You won't need a calculator to do this math: one rectangular lot divided into a half-dozen garden rooms equals more usable outdoor space. The suburban yard of Carol and Dudley Philhower (plan, right) shows how the formula works. At 78x166 feet, the Philhowers' property is not huge by any measure.

The looks we love and how to get them

Some people play piano by ear, cook by taste, and drive without directions. The rest of us need sheet music, a recipe, and a road map. The same is true of decorating. It's one thing to throw pieces together and call a room "eclectic." But to really make it work, you need to understand some style basics. Here are four great places to start.

TAILORED TO FIT

Squeezing a spacious new home onto a slim lot is like dressing a king-size bed with a set of queen sheets. Eileen and Ron Bowerman of Des Moines (above, with dog Tess) decided to accept the geometric challenge-- as long as their amenity-filled home could politely take its place in a 1920s neighborhood of bungalows, Tudors, and Colonials.
