Rubbings

No need to rub a magic lamp if you're wishing for interesting decorative accents for your home. You can make your own by transferring patterns from almost any object, as long as it has an embossed texture. Simply place the object under paper and rub with a crayon or an artist's oil pastel-- poof!-- a pattern appears. Once you've caught the rub bug, you'll see texture and possibilities in all sorts of things. Take this farmhouse heating grate (above), for instance.

Upholstery Fabric

Let's play a game: We'll show you a chair and four fabric swatches. All you have to do is imagine how the chair would look upholstered in each fabric. The challenge? Try to spot the fabric that doesn't work. It may be a terrific fabric, but for the style of chair, the look would be a little off. Ready?

And the winner is... fah-niks (phonics)

After a decade of being dismissed as old-fashioned, phonics instruction-- teaching children to read by connecting sounds with letters and letter combinations-- is "in" again, and for good reason. It works. Study after study has found that explicit and direct phonics instruction offers significant benefits to children learning to read. And the earlier the kids are taught phonics, the better.

Minivan with a miniprice

Sedona, a new 2002 minivan from Korean carmaker Kia, lacks the power side doors and clever disappearing seat of established competitors like Honda Odyssey and Dodge Caravan.

Thriving in the shade

"If you have shade on your property, you are lucky." So says David Benner, a retired professor of horticulture who ought to know. His garden, in Pennsylvania, grows entirely under trees-- lots of them. With very little fuss, he grows more than 150 species of wildflowers; dozens of flowering trees and shrubs, such as purple azaleas (above); and soft carpets of moss that cushion paths and glades.

A busy interior designer and entrepreneur, Ann is learning to balance career with homework, school lunches, and backyard croquet. She also is finding ways to mesh the feminine, delicate aspects of her own cottage style with a big man and rambunctious kids. See how the Pirhonens blend old with new, color with calm, and antiquity with durability in a 1,200-square-foot house, where it's easy to live and love.

A Closer Look at... Home for Healthy Living

Even a brief walk-through of the Home for Healthy Living (our first tour begins on page 169) makes it clear that this house addresses a broad agenda of issues regarding healthy living. One issue is indoor air quality. Another is water quality. A third is energy efficiency. Others include personal safety and security, plus functional aspects, such as flexibility and adaptability. Public interest in all these areas has spawned whole new categories of building products, many of which tap technical know-how that didn't exist a few years ago. Before planning your own healthy house, take a closer look at how our Home for Healthy Living puts these tools to work in achieving a healthier at-home environment for today's families.
