Shortly after Katrina an acquaintance ( we were both members of an organization's board of directors) asked if I knew of any rental apartments in my neighborhood. Her home had been flooded. She was staying in Houston and was facing a long period of time before she'd be able to return. Rental space was limited and extremely costly and she was facing major building costs. My husband and I decided we would offer her an unlimited stay in our home. She had an option of the pool house which would have given her more privacy or a bedroom and bath in the main house. She chose the latter. She lived with us for nearly five months until she found an apartment. It was nearly a year until she was able to move back into her home. The only awkward moment was when she asked about the rental cost and I assured her there wasn't any. She was our guest. She took all her meals with us, and contributed by cooking her special creole recipes. Spaces in the refrigerator and freezer were designated as hers. We set a "wash day schedule" for both of us. She maintained her room and bath. Most of her days were spent at her house, going through possessions, salvaging what she could and finding a contractor to rebuild. Evenings were spent recounting the day, asking for input from us and getting to know each other better. She is not a young person and she is very proud. Her life was shattered by the hurricane and she was facing starting over. My husband was terminally ill and I knew I would be facing life changes soon, too. She supplied a much welcomed distraction from the daily medical focus for us and we provided a sounding board for her since she was alone and didn't have family in town to assist her. My husband is gone now. She's back in her home on the other side of the city but we remain close and speak almost on a daily basis. I guess you could say we developed a symbiotic friendship out of a shared need!

Excellent information. I have never been the guest although, my sister, her late hubby, my husband and I do share our Mother's house when we visit that state. Last year we were there 3 months at various times. We all shop, cook, clean up and have not had any visible issues. My sister is living with me now for 2 months in Fl. while she makes the change from married life to being a widow. It goes well as we are 'on vacation', I cook and I pay for the groceries, but sis does take us to breakfasts and other meals. We eat out frequently with friends and the men usually share the cost and make sis feel welcome. I have had many long visits with family and friends as we live by the beach and on 2 different lakes. We have tried to set up days where each family is responsible for the food and clean up that day. The clean up never happens like you need it to so I always end the big trips (30 plus people) with some resentment. No matter how well you lay it out it seems people forget the routine clean up chores when they are boating, swimming and drinking!! But every year I do it all again as I forget what bothered me the previous summer.

I currently am "hosting" my sister, her husband, and infant after they came on hard times, both losing their jobs and being very close to bankruptcy. They have been living with me for almost a year and there have been many ups and downs. To being with, I was not the closest with this sister (I'm oldest, she's youngest...10 years apart) and we have many differences. But there really was no thought in my mind about having them move in...they are family and needed a leg up. Her husband does household projects and keeps the house cleaner than I would if I were there alone! My sister cooks, packs my lunches, and was an in-home nurse to my elderly dog during his last few months (I'm tearing up now, because I would not have been able to have him with me if it weren't for her...I'm a surgical resident and would not have felt it fair to leave him for 18+ hours a day). They are slowly gaining ground on things, but they have an unlimited "lease" to my spare room.

I also hosted a friend while I was in Germany. We had returned from deployment and were both diagnosed with PTSD, hers much worse than mine. She ended up staying for about 8 months and, while still difficult at times, there was no question in my mind what the right thing to do was.

During both of these instances, there have been days where I wished I had my place to myself, but when all is said and done, being surrounded by people who you love and love you is worth a little inconvenience. I'm glad to see that there are people in the world who feel the same!

Many comments have referenced the difficulty of installing wallpaper on a ceiling and also removing it. If it is repositionable and removable it isn't a problem. Consider the ceiling the 5th wall of a room. We have a light weight product that is specifically designed for ceiling use. It's easier to install and because it has a pressure-sensitive adhesive backing, its weight and gravity are not in opposition. The ceiling is an ideal area to personalize. We had a customer who wanted a world map reflecting her travels and we customized that for her. It's a one-of-a-kind conversation piece.

Cautionary tale...I just spent $4200 to cover someone else's ceiling and wall 'wallpaper experiment'. Wallpaper is very difficult to remove from drywall and virtually impossible to separate from plaster. Love your wallpaper and be prepared to look at it for a long, long time. Know you will get less for your house when you sell it.

To me, chopped pillows look artifical. They remind me of my grandma's living room that was more a still life than a room to live in. I also don't find sofas or chairs overflowing with pillows inviting. Pillows should, first and foremost, make sitting more comfortable - not impossible.

Fascinating design, but I'm puzzled by this statement: "A stairway on the east side of the house provides access between the living room deck and the yard and pool below. The adjoining wall screens bathers as they dart between the two." Why do people going to the pool need a wall to screen them? Are they darting between the house and pool because the outdoor temperature is low or are they skinny-dipping?

Things always cost more than you think. Changing your mind costs.

Agree with the comment re planning ahead for what you cannot afford now. When we built. we thought that we might like a spa pool one day. There was no room in the budget for that but we did pay $90 for an exterior electrical socket so that we can easily go ahead if we are in that position (i.e. paid off the mortgage). Factoring in the cost of interest on top of the purchase price of a spa pool could almost double the price over the long term. Maybe I am stingy.

On the other hand, there are some things that I had to have done at the time of building, like the landscaping, as last time we waited 12 years and 3 days for a proper driveway before the earthquake ruined the land (lateral spreading and liquefaction). Though my husband thought that was a plus as he looked out over our yard as soon as the sun came up!

A few stripes can make a big change, especially if you don't have to mask and paint, can easily reposition to correct alignment if necessary, remove and use again. Use a combination of sizes and colors. Designer Katie Buck used a bold, bright wide stripe as a focal point in the nursery

Hello Joan,

Thank you very much for sharing your story. Sounds like you are having fun working on your farm house. And yes it is a lot of work. I spent a year and and half working on a friends farm house in West Chester PA. It was a lot of fun and that experience has inspire some of the images from the OLD WORLD series.

I love the idea of a large beautiful vintage wardrobe. To tell you the truth I have been looking at a few. Growing up in South America my families home there were wardrobe in in all of the bedrooms. It seems I am coming full circle.

I hope that one day you will share you farm house on HOUZZ.

Thanks again!

@ shelltastic- one (1) 40" w x 6.5" h (2 sq.ft) stair riser is available in 4 different colorways. The regular Casart is $18 and the light Casart is $17. Another option is the border, which also is 6.5" h, but is 24 ft. wide and can be easily cut to fit the stair riser.

I hated Bee Movie...completely misleading in how pollination works and the reason for it. Pollination is important for plant reproduction, but plants don't DIE simply because they're not pollinated (They just don't have sex - which requires pollen from their OWN species). I realize the whole movie was tongue-in-cheek and meant to be taken as a gentle environmental message, but I found the assumption of ignorance insulting and the movie to be the worst I had seen in a long time. I do like bees and appreciate the role they play, and I have toyed with the idea of beekeeping once we have the space; but these could have been done better justice even with an animated film.

As for resonating, I really enjoyed Benjamin Vogt's article the other week on Selfless Gardening, which goes right along with conservation of bees and other insects. Go natives!

Victoran, make sure you boost the pots up off the ground with spacers (don't block the drain hole!), or move the pots every season. If the pots are resting on the ground, the tree roots will migrate up through the drain holes and into the pots. I was called out to troubleshoot a container garden that had 1/2-inch tree roots coming up through the bottom. They had been in the same place for a couple of years.

If you are using decal dots, be sure to measure and mark if you want to achieve the geometric pattern pictured above. For ease in lining bookshelves, use removable wallpaper: easy to put up, easy to remove. And if your shelves are all the same size, there's book case backing already available in 52" w x 42" h. as shown below.

I have a small sundial similar to the one shown as Monticello. Mine is functional IF I want to take the time to rotate it to correspond to the time of year; pivoting the rod in the ground that is its base to line up with noon on the sundial so that there is no shadow. Most of the time it is just decorative.

If you want an accurate sundial, you'll need to get one with a gnomon who's angle corresponds with your latitude, and the gnomon needs to point to true North (not magnetic north).
