Every week after our library's story time, we choose a few new books for our daughter. When nap time is calling, we have to choose quickly so some are gems, while others are well, not. This is a wordless book so it's a nice break from the usual. A young girl living in the city finds the red book...similar to the one you as a reader are holding. The boy also sees the book and in it, he sees the girl in the city. This is a special book, and a Caldecott Honor Book we should also mention, that sparks the imagination with its beautiful illustrations and evocative story, a great read for a quiet afternoon.
Name: Alexander Location: Bilbao Spain Square Feet: 390 Division: International What I Love About My Small Home: It is in the city-centre so everything is close: parks, bars, pubs, cinemas, underground, etc. I have enough space for the pug and the Florida tortoise, and also for gatherings with friends.

It includes a poured concrete Japanese soaking tub, concrete countertops and a 9 1/2 foot tall tile mosaic shower wall. It has his and hers vanities and a double shower with ceiling mount rain heads.... 'As far as bathrooms go, it was done very inexpensively and incorporates some ideas that I think are useful and fun whether one is on a budget or not.From the $48 sconces that look super high-end to the shower that I tiled in basic 4 1/4' white ceramic and blue glass gobs purchased in bulk to the marine vinyl used as partitions instead of expensive tempered glass panels, I think it's a testament to what you can do with a limited budget and some creativity.

The holidays are coming, and you might be thinking about your dining room a little more than usual. Trade Spaces: There's no reason that the living room should get all the good stuff. Swap out the two rooms so your dining room has a fireplace, which makes for cozy and lingering meals this winter. Maximize Comfort: You don't want a visually appealing room that trades function for form. Add Some Unexpected Humor: Dining rooms don't always have to be traditional, stuffy places that require - nay demand - impeccable manners and rigid postures. Paint The Ceiling: Tackle the fifth wall and add a major amount of drama to the room. It doesn't have to be black, like this room from Home Adore, but the more saturated the bigger the statement. Or The Whole Room: That said, if you want to go dark and dramatic, like this room designed by Emma Reddington, I certainly would not stop you. Since lighting in the dining room is so key, it's also one of the best places to go a little crazy with your budget.
Done well and your home is sophisticated, timeless, and soothing. If you're not careful your house reads 2-dimensional and dull. Interest comes in the form of texture, which you desperately need. It can come in the form of projects large and small, from full-on architectural details to smaller accessories and decor.

'We moved to our loft space one year ago and with its white walls, white appliances and gray Formica countertops, we just had to jazz it up with some color. Because we're leasing, permanent remodeling of the kitchen was out of the question, so we went to our local Scandinavian department store for the essentials - pantry, cabinets,shelves, organizers and workspace/island. Then, working with some of the artwork we had collected, I painted the walls each a different color - an orange/rust, a pale celery green and a grayed olive green. These colors all show off our paintings and collection of linens and pottery.' Color Resources:As a garden designer and vintage shop owner, my color selections as well as texture influences are mostly taken from what I see in nature. As a former color stylist in animation, we studied old illustration art for ideas in combining colors.
