10 Easy Pieces: Colorful Tray Tables

Lately I’ve been having this problem: my cell phone alarm goes off in the morning, and, as I fumble around with half-open eyes, I knock it (or a glass of water or my jewelry or my watch) on the floor. Like most household quandaries, this one can be solved with a tray; so I’m planning to swap my regular bedside table for a tray table. Tray tables have come a long way in recent years; a new array available in a rainbow of powder-coated hues will bring order—and style—to your life. Above: The HA...

Lately I’ve been having this problem: my cell phone alarm goes off in the morning and fumbling with half-open eyes, I knock it (or a glass of water or my jewelry or my watch) on the floor.

Kitchen of the Week: A Laid-Back Courtyard Kitchen Where ‘Family Life Unfolds’

It’s common for clients to create a wish list for their architect before a project starts. An open kitchen, ample storage, sustainable design, a native garden—these were all on the project brief that architect Zoe Geyer, of ZGA Studio, received a few years ago from her clients, a young couple looking to build a new addition to an already existing home in Hampton, Australia, just outside Melbourne. Not so common? Their request for a backyard racetrack. But given that these clients were a young co...

Will Egypt have another uprising?

Egypt is well-known for its exceptionally rich history. For many, the country is synonymous with ancient wonders such as the pyramids of Giza and the royal tombs of Luxor. However, in January 2011, modern Egypt suddenly leapt to the center of the public’s imagination. Over a period of 18 days, millions of Egyptians engaged in sit-ins, strikes, and demonstrations as well as pitched battles with the security forces. Their efforts led to the removal of the country’s long-standing dictator, Hosni Mu...

Online Social Networking Related to Tea – Part 1

My daughter, the murderer: a mother's desperate journey through the mental health crisis

In her first nonfiction book, Mary K Pershall examines the complex mental and institutional issues that led to the ‘unimaginable horror’ of her child taking another’s lifeMary Pershall dared to hope. Her daughter, Anna, had agreed to go to rehab, to tackle her dependence on alcohol, synthetic cannabis and ice. In return, Mary had put aside her scruples and driven to an adult store so that Anna could buy synthetic cannabis. It’s not an uncommon bargaining chip used by despairing parents. It would...

Remodeling 101: All About Stair Runners

Over 10 years of Remodelista, we’ve seen architects, designers, and homeowners do inventive things with stair runners (which, historically, tend to be a little uninteresting). There was this dramatic green stair runner, and this casual painted runner. But do stair runners actually have a purpose? Do you really need one? To get some answers to common questions about stair runners, we talked with designer Victoria Kirk, who established Victoria Kirk Interiors in 2007. Her company, based in Larchmo...

Stacked-Up Book Thoughts: 6 Good Books

I skipped my review post last week for no particular reason than I was feeling lazy. Instead I posted extra-short reviews on Twitter. I give you similarly short thoughts today, just to keep a record here. This was a slow reading week, which is the weather's fault. I did yard work, started cleaning the deck for summer, and had to dig out my summer clothes. It was also the first week of our outdoor farmer's market, which is where we buy the bulk of our food until it closes in late October...

X MARKS THE STORY: APRIL 2018
