Dressmaker Pillows

There's nothing complicated about sewing high-style accent pillows when the materials you use are luxurious fabrics in sophisticated colors. The secret is in matching unusual fabrics, such as silk, satin, or synthetic suede, with a common dressmaking detail, such as appliqué or pleating-- or in subtly mixing color and texture. Look to apparel fabrics at your local fabric store for inspiration, but make sure the fabrics you choose are washable, durable, and not easily wrinkled or raveled.

Beating Back the Bully

Like the wild beasts of nature, bullies have an instinctive knack for identifying and preying upon weaker kids. Steven (not his real name) was an ideal victim. Having been born with a congenital heart defect, the 12-year-old had never been allowed to participate in the traditional sports most kids take for granted. He had never been able to defend himself when other kids wanted to wrestle.

Growing Up & Showing Off

Vines need, above all, a stairway toward heaven. A vine pole is often the best perch for climbing posies, because these structures hold flowers high while keeping the plant wholly in the sun. Grow a vine up a tree and, of course, the tree casts a shadow on the vine. Vine poles have one more advantage over trees: You can paint a vine pole any color you please.

Shimmering in the Shade

Forget about struggling to grow grass under towering trees. Take a figurative step beyond that circle of hostas in the shade of your pines. And bare mulch? Why bother? Wherever you are blessed (yes, blessed) with the cool respite of shade, there you may grow flowers. Scores of shade-loving perennials-- such as these anemones (above)-- bloom bountifully with only a modicum of sun.

Sunrooms

Adding a sunroom is almost like moving outdoors. What other room lets you soak your toes in pools of warm sunshine no matter which way you turn your chair? And where else can you stretch the "indoors" clear out to the horizon by lining your walls with glass-- and leaving the windows beautifully bare? If your house hems you in every time the mercury dips or the days grow short, break out of the box with a sun-snatching annex that lets you bask in blue-sky brightness the year-round. For inspiration, check out the smart design strategies in these four easy-living sunrooms.
