    How to Use Texture to Zone Your Open-Plan Home

    When you’re designing an open-plan room, it’s a good idea to think about how you’ll separate each zone. By being creative with the surfaces you use to decorate the walls, you can divide your living, dining and kitchen areas more effectively, adding warmth, interest and personality ... more

    What an Open-Plan Addition Can Do for Your Old House

    It’s no secret that many of the original homes we see in older, established areas simply don’t cut it when it comes to meeting our 21st-century lifestyles. Many of these homes feature individual, boxed-in rooms instead of the open-plan layouts that support our contemporary life. Small, badly positioned windows are also common in these older homes, which means they don’t make the most of views, outdoor living connections or passive-solar design principles.

    The good news is there’s often no need to knock down an older house and start again. An open-plan addition and a rethinking of how the original home’s rooms can be used can change everything ... more

    How to Separate Space in an Open Floor Plan

    The open floor plan — championed by early modernists Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and Walter Gropius, among others — is as relevant today in home design as it was in the early 20th century. But modern life still requires, at varying times, functional, aesthetic, visual and auditory isolation. The following examples explore the intersection of openness and isolation, showing how we can provide separation without losing the openness we crave ... more

    Time To Choose - shower Curtain or Shower Door?

    If you don’t have the space (or budget) for a separate shower enclosure and bath, you’ve probably decided on a combined shower-bath. But should you go with a shower curtain, or choose a glass shower door or panels to enclose it? Some of us might gravitate toward the softer look of a colorful piece of waterproof fabric that can be changed at will, while others might love the no-nonsense efficiency of a sheer pane of glass ... more

    No Need to Compromise on Style With a Shower-Tub Combo

    In an ideal world or, rather, an ideal bathroom, many of us would like enough space to have a tub as well as a standalone shower. While having just one or the other is one route to take, lots of us will opt instead for a combination. A shower-tub combo doesn’t have to be a style compromise, though. Here are 15 beautiful ideas to get you started ... more

    How to Edit Your Belongings

    My mother was the most wonderful lady: gracious, giving and loving. But she was a child of the Great Depression, so she never threw anything away. “I might need them someday,” she would explain when I suggested that a 30-year accumulation of rubber bands might be excessive.

    My reaction to this was to throw away everything — whether I needed it or not (much to my husband’s chagrin). The upside of this admittedly knee-jerk response was that when it came time for us to downsize, the editing part was fairly easy ... more

    Think ‘Double Duty’ for Small Spaces

    A few weeks ago a big windstorm blew through the California Wine Country, where Mike and I live. Dear friends who live in a lovely family home a mile away had shingles blown off their roof and their fences toppled (which gave the ever-present deer unfettered access to their most-cherished plants). Their previously gorgeous yard ended up looking like the set of an apocalyptic movie.

    In the tiny bungalow Mike and I rent, we sipped glasses of wine and gave heartfelt thanks for the freedom and joy we have found in living small (and as tenants, not homeowners). Our friends, who are still digging out, just wanted to come over and drink with us ... more
