Decorating looks up

Ceilings are often the most forgotten element in a room's decor. But don't give your fifth wall the status of a fifth wheel. Use paint, moldings, and wallpaper borders to dress up ceilings in style.

Enamelware

Cooks in the 18th and 19th centuries were frustrated by their cookware options: Iron vessels were difficult to clean and rusted easily, and porcelain could not withstand high temperatures. Fortunately, someone thought to try enameling, a centuries-old technique that fuses a colorful glasslike coating to metal, to make iron and lighter sheet-metal vessels durable and attractive. Today, vintage "enamelware" brings charm to shelves in kitchens and baths.

Lofty Ambitions

We love the energy and the diversity [of the city] we're 1960s people, says Nita Fronk. Two and a half years ago, she and husband Mike sold their house in the suburbs of Minneapolis to move downtown. They bought a two-level unit in a converted woolen mill and turned it into a comfortable home that bucks the cold, austere stereotypes of industrial lofts.

Hiding Out Back

A screened-in sanctuary welcomes Karen and Don Drake into the woods just footsteps from the back door of their Atlanta residence. The idea for building the 23½x19½-foot structure started as a simple desire for an outdoor fire pit. However, the family's wish list grew with the addition of other amenities. "Mosquito-free" leaped to the list's top, followed by "a place to have a sit-down dinner and a big fireplace." Karen says, "It was a classic case of one thing leads to another."

Chef's Selection

Whether they have guests or not, cooking at the Von Kaenels' in St. Louis is a grand performance. Margaret (the baker) and Joe (the cook) enjoy sharing the limelight in their remodeled dual-chef kitchen. To claim a 20xl6-foot space, die couple removed a partition enclosing a desk area adjacent to the kitchen. Then they took out a wall, a closet, and a secondary staircase located to the right of the new island. A curvaceous granite counter now defines the chefs' stage and provides front-row seating for family and friends to join in on the action.

Breakfast Rooms

A breakfast room offers more than a place to rush through the first meal of the day. It's where we can focus and prepare ourselves for the day, or linger over coffee and enjoy the view. When a breakfast room is built with charm and comfort, it often becomes a space where everyone wants to be-- long after the dishes are cleared. Here's how three families created just such inspiring places.

Kitchens on the Side

1 A secondary kitchen takes a load off a home's main kitchen and saves lots of steps at munch time. This one-- squeezed into a triangular space in Nancy and Brian Ament's Canhy, Oregon, "bonus" room-- provides a place where the family can pop popcorn or blend fruity drinks using ingredients pulled from the compact refrigerator/freezer. Nancy and Brian's side kitchen is located so that snack-fixers and stool-perchers can keep an eye on the television across the room.

Let kids have their Say

It was every parent's nightmare. Jim, a 40-year-old bank facilities manager, got a phone call one Friday evening. His 17-year-old daughter, Martha (their names have been changed to protect their privacy), had been out bowling with friends before a high school dance. She said she'd accepted a soft drink from a boy that she'd never met, but that one of her friends knew. "It tasted kind of funny," she said.

Living Wreaths

For Deb Clark, living wreaths are an attractive way to showcase her collection of succulent plants. Succulents are tough, drought-tolerant plants with thick, waxy leaves-- "survivors that need no babying," as Deb puts it. Because her wreaths are composed of living plants, they change with the seasons as the plants grow and, in some cases, bloom. In the mild climate of Berkeley, California, where Deb lives, she leaves her wreaths outdoors year-round. In colder climates, succulent wreaths must be brought indoors to a sunny room for the winter.

Article

Carefree crab apples

There are no underwhelming crab apple trees. The simple fact of the matter is that any crab apple in bloom is a beautiful thing, usually breathtakingly so. Where things get dicey with crabs is later on in the season, say July, when many older varieties go through some rather wretched transformations, often losing all their leaves. We're not talking about a glorious fall here-- this is a premature defoliation, a pile o' diseased mess. But, thankfully, a new generation of crab apples (like this Prairifire, above) has been developed in the last couple of decades that eliminates just about all this unsightly muss and fuss. Plant a crab from this list (call them the Great Eight) and you and your landscape can enjoy four seasons of crab apple wonder-- with none of the crab apple woe.
