A Front Porch That Fits In

From the day Karen and Tim Conn moved into their Omaha home 10 years ago, they vowed it would someday have a proper front porch. Previous owners had tacked on an underscaled stoop with a corrugated metal roof. The Conns replaced the entry with a nearly full-width veranda that was painstakingly planned to meld with the home's classic styling.

Get-Comfy Home Offices

Although designed as a household-management office, this work/sitting space could serve a home-based business that focuses more on creative thinking than on paperwork. This office serves another purpose: It's a classroom where the owners homeschool their youngsters.

Article

Warm & welcoming style

With its blazing leaves and crisp air, autumn feels like a New England homecoming to a family now transplanted to the Midwest. "We spent some of our happiest early years of marriage in Vermont," explains Courtney Yasmineh, who lives in a 100-year-old Cape Cod-style home on a lake near Minneapolis. The house is a rambling puzzle of slightly disjointed additions, built by previous families with a similar Yankee aesthetic. But it has character, history, and warmth, which the Yasminehs emphasize inside with easygoing, traditional furnishings and a nature-inspired palette.

Top Videos for Kids

When you need some time away from your children to start dinner, to make a telephone call, or even just to take a breather, engage their attention with the magnetic power of a video. And don't feel bad-- even child-development experts turn to this trick occasionally. There's no reason to feel guilty. Children can learn a lot by watching high-quality videos, even those not labeled "educational," says Julie Dobrow, a children's media expert and professor at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts.

Time Management for Kids

John Severson has the kind of supercharged kids that make you marvel: his high school junior juggles music, cross-country skiing, debate, and his job while fitting in homework for his advanced placement courses and time with friends. John's other son checks his planner to see if he should be at soccer or scouts, whether he should be studying, or if he's free to just hang out.

Just a Shade Brighter

Cheryl and Dennis Kamera's first home came with a housewarming gift-- the opportunity for Cheryl's first real garden. "This is the first property we've owned," she says. "Prior to living here, I had serious vegetable gardens, but designing and developing ornamental gardens didn't happen until we were here." The clearing around her log home, nestled as it was in the tall conifers on Whidbey Island, Washington, had one overwhelming characteristic she knew would determine the kind of garden she could have: Shade. Like many shade gardeners, she started with rhododendrons and azaleas.

Fall Gatherings

Autumn arrives in a blaze of glory. Why leave its fiery beauty outdoors? Bring the bounty inside with seasonal decorations made from colorful leaves and sculptural pumpkins, pinecones, and pears. Making the most of fall's abundance can be as easy as tucking some leaves into a purchased wreath of wheat (above). With just a few craft-store supplies and findings from the local farmer's market-- or your own backyard-- you can fill your home with color and grace.

Fresh-idea kitchens

The way we use our kitchens hasn't changed much in the last 100 years. We still boil water on a hot burner, keep fresh food chilled, and whip up a special dish once in a while. And friends and family always seem to gather here, more than in other rooms, to sip wine and chat with the cook.
