Red would never be a colour I would have chosen, but there are flashes of red in the kitchen of the home we recently purchased. The kitchen is the only room that does not need urgent reno. I have learnt to love it and now embrace it and added a few other accessories. The pics are the two flashes of red. The rest is very neutral. We also took advantage of the red brick behind stove by covering it with glass. Sorry about mess in appliance cupboard, it has a roller door that just leaves a small line of red.

We bought a red couch years ago and everyone thought we were crazy. Turns out it really does go with just about everything! Currently we are building a house & I planned my living room wall colors around the red couch. I love it and am happy with the jolt of fun it adds to my living room.

I adore red as an accent colour.
I recently designed this cushion to add a splash of red to my lounge room.
Gorgeous photos above, particular those love red splashes in the garden.

Beautiful renovation. I love that you were true to the history of the home. I especially love the exterior repairs. It has wonderful curb appeal. The inside is warm and welcoming. Well done!

Beautiful renovation in the front & inside.

The back porch seems like an after thought. It looks too small for the house & after the beautiful finishes in the front & inside, would have looked amazing using a better wood like mahogany than pressure treated lumber.

Well, what is not to like about this? I wish more of our local houses were being saved like this. Older houses have so much more character than the subdivision homes we see here where we live. You did a remarkable job with this beautiful place. I love the bathroom and the kitchen and.....oh all of it.

To Chop or Not to Chop?

Karate-chopped pillows pop up in design photos all the time — to the delight of some, the dismay of others. Here's why Full Story

Good article!

Down pillow attributes:

You can chop them
They feel soft
The almost always look disheveled after one use
Hence, continual reshaping is needed

Foam/batting pillow attributes:

You cannot chop them
They feel soft, but not overly soft
They still look good after one use
Hence, no reshaping needed

Personal choice on what look and feel you like as well as your tolerance for continually refluffing pillows.

I personally don't like chopped pillows. I feel it makes them look cheap, like you couldn't afford to fill them properly. However, in formal or semiformal rooms for clients I tend to do the chop. In my home no chopping is necessary, my pillows are so well worn in that they look chopped without the effort.

Wow. The day that I start worrying about when my pillow chopping achieves the right harmony with another design element is the day I need a new hobby or pet in a bad way.

Why You Might Want to Build a House of Straw

We have a straw house next door to us. I'd never want one. My husband is a firefighter. He's tried putting straw house fires out. Can't do it. Burns too quick. Plus I'm not sure how your insurance company would feel about insuring such a flammable house. I like the idea, looks, concepts but reality has to weigh in somewhere. Granted, it's just stuff and it's just a house, so let it burn BUT when lives are at stake, I'm not one for taking those kind of chances.

Here in Chile is common to find straw houses. Some relatives live in a 50 years old straw house that never had damages with earthquakes.

I have to applaud whoever compiled this list. It seems as though pop culture is rare on houzz (and that's a good thing), but seeing this makes it seem more of the moment and fun rather than just problem-solving. Good way to sell houzz items, but also a fun read.

Wonderful article and nicely curated photos Becky!
I was recently in Austin TX and popped in an under construction town home that caught my eye..
The architects were very smart not to lump the laundry room btw the kitchen and garage - such a typical placement for it! Instead, they placed it on the 2nd floor with a door off the hallway (for the kids) AND a door straight from the master bedroom closet! Now this is where the laundry action happens - Not downstairs by the kitchen or garage!

Great article! I recognize myself in most of those points - my big problem is that I'm always more in love with the possibilities, than I am with the realization of a completed project. Consequently, most things that I "plan" to do, not only don't get finished, they rarely get started - which is why I have enough yarn to furnish my own shop (and I haven't knit a stitch in years) more paint and canvas than I have room for, and funky bits of furniture hanging about waiting for refurbishment.

I wonder if there is a 12 step programme I can join..

I was painting shutters for my son using a spray painter. I set the sprayer down stepped back to admire my work, caught my foot on the hose and ended up spray painting half the contents of his garage, the driveway and myself. Haven't used a sprayer since!

Tried for years to have children, expensive medical bills, no responses from adoption agencies. Bought a very attractive white sofa. That did the trick -- two little boys in less than one year.

I saw one of those strange-looking ergonomic wheeled chairs on clearance at the office supply store, the kind where you have to look at it a couple of times to figure out which of your body parts go where.

I took it home and when I went to sit down on it, it scooted across the floor with me half-way on and half-way off -- no wonder it was so inexpensive. I was afraid I'd get hurt on the thing so I put it out at the curb and one of my neighbors scarfed it up. It was out at the curb in front of her house a couple of days later.

I'd either add a smaller window upstairs in the attic or hang something decorative like a large metal star. It'll help balance the space visually.

How to Survive an Epidemic of Walking Dead

Tips to use around the house and garden to prep for the zombie apocalypse Full Story

In the pilot episode, when Rick wakes up from his coma and leaves the hospital to go back to his house, Morgan and his son are squatting there. Remember him? African-American guy? He is the one who tells Rick about the zombie apocalypse and how to survive it. They exchange walkie-talkies and Rick tries to contact him all of season one. Then in season two, they go back to Rick's hometown and Morgan has turned it into a zombie obstacle course. That episode, where they find Morgan again and he's kind of lost his mind, is Clear. I just thought that the actor who plays Morgan in that episode deserved some sort of award for that performance. He was incredible and heartbreaking. I LOVE Morgan.

There was a missed opportunity to generate power at the prison. Zombie treadmill by the fence. Instead of wasting time spearing them in the head just let them walk and walk, hook it up to a generator and BAM! electricity! BTW, I CLAIM that!

I have one in my living area. The rest of the room is orange and the accent is beige. I also did one in my daughters room because there was no way I was going to paint her whole room purple so that was the compromise. Everything serves it purpose.

I like them. I have them in the bedrooms. The master is mostly cream and the accent wall is chocolate color. The kids room has colors alternating from one wall to another (pink and green). It depends on the accent and how the rest of the room is decorated.
