It's no doubt an anchor of your living room, and maybe even a focal point of your home. Let's all give our sofas a good, thorough cleaning this weekend! This cleaning task will make the whole living room feel fresher for it. When's the last time you took a vacuum to the crevices? Swept under the sofa? Shook out and plumped up the cushions? Even folks who vacuum their rooms regularly don't always think to take apart their sofas to really get this seat clean. Follow the advice and instructions in the how-to post below to end up with a crumb and dust-free sofa when you're done! Things the above tutorial doesn't cover are whether or not you might have any stains or dirt on your sofa's material. Since everyone's sofa material will be different, you'll want to follow the manufacturer's suggestions on how to clean any particularly dirty cushions or deal with stains. Remember, as with all of our Weekend Projects, just do what you have the time and energy to do! Even if you just shake out your cushions and brush off the food crumbs, your sofa and living room will feel a little better. SHOW US YOUR WEEKEND WORK!

The neo-classical shapes in a crisp and glossy white would look great in both a darker space or a light-filled room. Their dramatic proportions add height to a mantle or centerpiece and work with both modern and traditional decors.... Handled Urn, 6 1/4' diam. Each is $198. Would you have a problem having urns in your home? We think some might!

With the nights getting chilly we're starting to dream about being tucked away in a cozy cabin on a snowy hillside. Later this week we'll be featuring some woodland inspired housetours but it's wednesday evening, the light is getting low and we're feeling a little bit sleepy and would really like for that vacation to begin now. These images are of stylist Robin Glaser's vacation cabin as posted on Emma's Blog. It does a good job of showing exactly the vibe we would be going for if we a) owned a cabin or b) had the wherewithal to put something this great together. It has the right mix of 'casual cabin' and 'fancy cabin'. Surprisingly the knotty pine was left as-is instead of being painted white as we ourselves have advised people to do. Leaving the wood exposed helps to make the place feel warm, cozy and inviting. With the addition of some modern pieces and a simple palette of whites, creams and browns the cabin takes on a bit of sophistication without feeling pretentious. We know that taxidermy can be a passionate subject for many, so we'll leave that to you.

Hanging on my wall are these two great looking and useful wood peels that we use to pull pizzas out of the oven. I got them for Ursula and I to use and was at first stymied as to how I'd store them. After oiling them and using them once, I decided they'd look great on the wall, and they do. I used a shiny brass screw to hang them and put mini over biggie.

While Elizabeth's apartment may be color-filled elsewhere, we love her glam, primarily gray bedroom. From cool art to crisp bedding, there are some serious wows to this wonderful boudoir.

Hello AT,. I moved out of an apartment and into a small house more than a year ago and the living room is still an overwhelming cavern of blankness. I simply don't know how to put together a furniture palette for my living room.... Every once in awhile I see an AT posting that showcases an assemblage of old and new furniture pulled together into a great style and I think to myself, 'That's what I want!!' So I'm sending this out as a plea for help. The only things I have in the living room are a sofa and two chairs what I need is everything else: floor lamp, table lamp, rug, coffee table, end table, bookshelves, etc. I like natural colors and natural textures and I have a very hazy vision/goal of a modern garden conservatory-esque room, but I don't even really know what I mean by those words.

When Elise and Ben bought their Mount Washington house, the kitchen looked like this. They used this sad kitchen for five years until they finally updated it. The end result is modernized, but still captures the spirit and integrity of the storied older house. Using IKEA cabinets to keep the costs down, they were able to upgrade and personalize the look with Calcutta marble and Schoolhouse Electric hardware for all the cabinets. Removed a wall between our tiny kitchen and mud room to make one larger kitchen and create a peninsula for the kids to sit and eat. Replaced two louvered windows with one awning window. The surprise that Elise found during renovation was unreal.

It takes a lot to run things and we need a to place to store all of that stuff. Good thing they don't have thumbs yet, because they haven't figured out how to open a cabinet drawer. An Excellent Office Storage Pair Last week Mike told us about a great combination to make the Alex and Helmer IKEA units even better at containing our mess! Alex, IKEA $119.00 One of the more obvious and certainly more popular options, the IKEA Alex drawer unit is one of the best. In our household it holds printing paper, old photographs, our portfolios and much more. 10 Ways to Use Kitchen Storage in the Office is another extremely useful and innovative way to tame the beast in the office. Using unlikely items such as wine racks to wrangle magazines is such a fun and interesting idea! The wine rack would also be great for storing rolled up cords. Synchronicity Letter-Size Interior File Folders, The Container Store $5.99 Have to be the coolest folders we've seen. These would certainly be useful in any file cart or cabinet.
