Pressed-Posies Prints

Our set of ready-to-hang framed prints (right) replicates the look without the expense. Here we have hung the prints horizontally over a mantel and surrounded them with birdhouses and green plants, but you can choose any method of display you prefer.

Dining room makeovers

Even the smallest dining nook looks larger in the light. Shedding a cocoon of dark colors is an easy, inexpensive way to open up space. Deep hues like navy blue and red absorb light, so replace them with such light-reflective colors as periwinkle blue. Minimize color contrasts for maximum space stretching. And if the budget permits, exchange windows for French doors to truly let the sun shine in.

English Cottage Potting Shed

The blooming vines and meandering pathways of English cottage landscapes have always held a place in the heart of garden designer Lynne Habig. So when Lynne moved to her Indianapolis home after living 30 years in rural Indiana, she brought her love of those country gardens with her. Because English cottage landscapes usually include an outbuilding, she decided to build a quaint, little potting shed as a centerpiece.

Keeping Kids Safe on the Internet

You finally taught your elementary child to look both ways-- really look, not just quickly shake her head back and forth-- when crossing the street. You successfully explained the idea of strangers as a concept slightly more complex than "any man with a beard." Then, along comes the Internet: a window on the world that puts imaginable (and unimaginable) resources at your child's fingertips.

Twilight in the GARDEN

As the sun sets on another summer day, your garden goes through a subtle transformation. Flowers in pigment-rich hues that assert themselves in sunlight-- red, violet, and orange-- disappear into the dusk. Attention shifts to white flowers, such as the hybrid anemone Honorine Jobert (above), which take on a glow to rival the moon. Floral perfumes scent the evening air. Best of all, weeds become invisible, as do the reminders of other unfinished chores. Relax. Set down your trowel, and leave all that for tomorrow.

The new CALIFORNIA STYLE

With more than its share of sunshine, California practically invented breezy indoor-outdoor living. But these days, even Californians are searching for more solid design roots. Outdated sliding doors, faddish furnishings, and poured-concrete patios won't do. The new style yearns for earthy soul: rough-hewn wood, river rock, and a crisp simplicity that stands strong in the golden light. Here's one California ranch home that's striking a rich balance.

So, Better Homes and Gardens editors decided to go on patrol at the home of one of our own to find solutions to some of our readers' most common clutter problems. At the risk of embarrassing their mothers, senior food editor Nancy Wall Hopkins and her husband, freelance photographer Bill Hopkins, welcomed us in on one of their worst days.

Exterior FACELIFTS

Personalities are shaped by time and circumstance, so that who we were in youth may not be obvious to those who get to know us come middle age. The same goes for houses. Prim, pretty home exteriors can fall into disrepair, requiring great effort to recover their original charm. But even painfully ordinary homes-- those that have never displayed much character at all-- could put on a fresh new face with a little fixing up. Here are five beautiful cases where families have revived period details in their home exteriors or thoughtfully infused a welcoming dose of curb appeal where there was none before.
