For Bunky61 - a low tech way to make certain your bulbs always unscrew easily even after years of use is to put a very small amount of Vaseline or similar product on the threads.

May be it's a Californian thing but to spend so little of this article on LED lighting is is showing disregard to our planet. Industry "representatives" should help people save power (and in turn the planet and their money). To devote only one or two lines to LED is negligent. Also, in a couple of years no one will be installing 60 Watt halogen lights - so this article will be out of date (if it's not already).

Why is everyone against ceiling fans? I understand that a poor ceiling fan can quickly date a room, but there are so many great options out there. I have great big high ceilings throughout the house and the ceiling fans are essential in keeping my heating and cooling costs low. Why can't we have both form and function?

These rooms are well done..... Mix of shabby chic and classic furnishings, with simplicity (ie: no overdone lace, florals, ruffles)!

Is everyone just having a bad day? Because I feel like there are charming ideas in each picture, even if you wouldn't want to adopt the entire look. :) And I agree, ker9... I like REAL distressed furniture.

The best tip I have is the feng shui tip of placing the desk and chair so that your back is never to the door but facing it instead. This creates a feeling of power rather than vulnerability.

An entry hall should hint at the rest to come......whether you actually decorate it first, or last. In the pic below, (last "room" done in a move to a new home), the antique prints on the stair wall, I had chosen for their former powder room, chair for the living room, and the chest for the prior master bedroom. All found new welcoming spots at the front door. The pattern in the stair carpet, not visible in a photo, echoes the iron railing motif, in smaller scale.

TV above the fireplace is the worst misttake you can make! First, most LCD/LED TVs have limited viewing angles. The picture fades and colours are distorted when viewed from below. Mind your neck, too. Second, if you plan to use the fireplace take into account that heat rises upwards from the fireplace and that chimney also heats up, at best grilling you TV from behind. Placing your TV in a hot place also reduces the life of your equipment.

We just purchased a mid-century modern house that was built in 1961 and we bought it from the original owners. They had done very few updates. It still has a turquoise oven built into a rock wall that extends into the kitchen from the den. I had planned on doing major remodeling but the longer I am here the less I want to change. I love it.

A house with a personality.
But, I personally would go bonkers watching tv and seeing those wires snaking down the wall above and below the media cabinet.
I do realise that it's impossible to hide all wires, neither would I want to, but I wouldn't like to be forced to look at them while I watched tv!
