Derek took a smart approach to his kitchen renovation, sourcing items from industrial supply companies to create a durable space for cooking. Working with an architect, he developed an open, airy layout that's functional and family friendly. For other industrial home sources, see our archives.
It may be autumn, but spring colors warm up this bedroom showroom. Maxwell reports, 'I like the generous layout here of two full size twin beds in soft blue and yellow at the Thomasville display.'

Q: I saw this plate rack on a website, and am wondering if you could make a post to get people to ID this rack, or recommend something similar? Editor: This is a great-looking storage piece - I'd love to have one, too! It looks like it originally was designed for commercial use, so a restaurant supply company would be the best place to look for something similar. I imagine this is something that the right restaurant supply source would be able to custom fabricate. Does anyone else have suggestions or advice for Ben?

Name: AlpearsallLocation: NYC. Picture Description: I took this photo while staying in a rental apartment in Paris. The goal is to create a bedroom in NYC that makes me feel as pampered and indulged as this room made me feel. It is the most organized room in my apartment and the most restful.
Here's an idea we saw this weekend that we're inspired to emulate for our own gardening project. Using wall planters to grow herbs or other plants is an efficient use of space normally ignored as gardening space, but perfectly suited for apartment dwellers with only a balcony to grow flora. Here are some instructions for making your own wall or hanging garden baskets.
Lots of New York apartments come with charming vintage bathrooms. The bathroom of Heather and Doug's Park Slope condo, true to its roots in the 80s, had dark, dour maroon tile on the walls and grungy white tile on the floor. The homeowners, with a view to selling the apartment in the next few years, wanted a bathroom remodel that would make their space brighter and more pleasant, and appeal to potential buyers as well. The new bathroom feels infinitely brighter and fresher, thanks to bright white walls, and a classic subway tile surround in the shower. The floor tile, a blue mosaic tile laid in a herringbone pattern, adds texture and character to the space. The bathroom is quite small, but a few new storage solutions help open up the space. The old medicine cabinet, which protruded into the room, has been replaced with a new one that's recessed into the wall, so the storage space is the same but the cabinet seems less bulky. The new shower curtain hangs on a thin wire instead of a rod - a tiny detail, but one that helps contribute to the new bathroom's clean, fresh feel. Heather says that she loves that the bathroom is 'Much more functional and looks bright and clean.' Now she and Doug, and their two kids, have a space that makes time spent in the bathroom much more pleasant - and will hopefully make selling their apartment a breeze, too.
Q: I live in an old Victorian style home that was built in 1901 and later converted to apartments. The window moldings match the period and are about 6 inches tall. I'm not sure where to hang curtains or valances. I would like to hang a valance in my kitchen, but am not sure if I should cover the molding completely or hang the valance lower so you see the molding above it. In my living room, I just want to hang one sheer over each window and am again wondering where I should place the rod. Editor: Leave your suggestions for Renee in the comments - thanks!

Lately, we've been in love with deep, rich blues and Candy Pop's shade is right up our alley. Walls reminiscent of blue candy mixed with design elements similar to those in Marie Antoinette, this is one bedroom we could get comfortable in. More views of Candy Pop's fancy blue bedroom after the jump! Vintage floral curtains and antique lighting fixtures will upgrade any bedroom instantly. We also love how Candy Pop mixes mirrored accents and clear furniture which adds to the drama of a bedroom. A great combo-the classic Ghost chair paired with a romantic vanity. The bedside lamp shade reminds us of cotton candy and we love how the pair are settled on a decorative plate.
When we were young, we would pore over every issue of our mother's subscription to Metropolitan Home. While we loved closely examining each page, our main fascination was always the countless living rooms featured and, in particular, the coffee tables. What was placed on top of them seemed as important as the table itself. Were they covered in books? Did candles or candy trays sit on top? The possibilities were endless. In our continued coffee table top fascination, we ask.....
They've packed a lot of functionality into this stylish table. The inside has movable dividers for storage and the underside of the top is chalkboard. The cut-out in the chair backs make them easy for kids to grab and move.
Want to really get out of the city? Want to take in some vast spaces and good clean living? We stumbled across MaryJane'sFarm.com out in Moscow, Idaho, yesterday and have been lost on the website all day. While it is damn hard to find an overview, the backstory seems to be that Mary Jane Butters started a farm in Idaho over 15 years ago, and has turned it into a remarkable opportunity to become the Martha of the West: a media savy, organic farmer who writes about everything she and others do around the farm in the hopes of spreading inspiration, information and good living. Oh, and there's also a B&B with wall tents as bedrooms.... She edits a women's magazine called Mary Jane's Farm, writes a weekly syndicated newspaper column, she runs an online business selling everything from bread to salsa to non-stick pans, she runs a farm school called the Pay Dirt Farm School, AND she's an organic farmer.
