Sunny outlook for a '60s ranch

Looking at them now, though, they seem quirky with their boxy floor plans, walls that block views, and time-warp finishes. Donna and Gordon Hamilton stumbled upon these very problems when they first walked into this 1962 ranch-- but they couldn't resist the idea of one-level living with amazing views of a Washington lake.

Bathroom planner

In years past, bathrooms were viewed purely as utilitarian rooms, furnished in plain and practical ways. Practicality is still in vogue, but today we want baths splashed with panache and sprinkled with bits of luxury. Who can resist tubs that bubble, showers that steam (with mirrors that don't), and bars that warm towels? Even no-nonsense types who never linger in the shower can appreciate a grooming area where shadows don't obscure the face in the mirror and where the toothbrush, hairbrush, and cosmetic brush don't mingle.

When flowers are forever

Forget whatever algorithmic formulas and quadratic equations you may have overheard about drying flowers. The process is not at all daunting. You don't even have to grow the traditional "everlastings" to preserve flowers and bring them indoors. In fact, says Betsy Williams, flower-saver nonpareil, you can dry just about anything. Whatever flowers you have handy, give 'em a whirl. "Try the unexpected," she says, suggesting berries, ferns, seed pods, branches, even entire plants.
