Candice Olson: A Chef Gets An Updated, Chic Kitchen

Lower cabinet doors were made from a rich, dark walnut topped with a durable new gray quartz countertop, and the octagonal-tile backsplash is classy Carrara marble. A shiny new stain-less steel double sink and a gooseneck faucet are complemented by brand new stainless-steel appliances, including a gas range at the chefs request. The kitchen table is the center of it all, so for Miranda we chose a solid, traditionally inspired rectangular wooden table. Two comfortable, gray, high-back chairs were placed at each end for the master and missus, and white-painted benches with custom-made cushions in a combination of charcoal and cheery striped fabric make room for the kids when theyre home. For more casual meals, there is additional seating at the end of the extended kitchen island, where family members and guests can pull up stools for coffee and a chat. Illumination in this delicious new kitchen is provided by recessed ceiling lights, under-cabinet fixtures, pendants over the island, and a beautiful polished nickel chandelier centered within a ceiling medallion over the dining table. Crown and panel molding were added throughout the kitchen and bulkhead as well as the dining area for an elegant touch, and the table sits squarely on a heather-gray-and-black area rug.

Bedroom Tax: One In Seven Households ‘face Eviction’

It called on ministers to exempt people living in adapted properties from the tax. Meanwhile, the Labour party has published the results of a freedom of information request which shows the number of tenants wrongly subjected to the bedroom tax as a result of drafting errors in legislation is nearly 50,000 at least 10 times as many as official estimates. Chris Bryant, the shadow minister for welfare reform, said information from a third of councils showed that 16,000 people were affected by the error, which affects working age tenants in social housing who have occupied the same home continuously since 1996. The reports herald a day of parliamentary activity around the bedroom tax. A bill to abolish the tax will be introduced by Labour backbench MP Ian Lavery, while Lord Freud, the welfare minister, will appear before a committee of MPs to answer question on a raft of welfare reforms. Lavery said he believed that the bedroom tax had caused the most visible poverty and heartache of all the coalition’s welfare changes.

Arranging Your Books By Color Is Not A Moral Failure

And whos to say that color isnt a perfectly viable visual cue to help locate a book you want to revisit? In its 2012 ” In Defense of: Organizing Books by Color,” Apartment Therapy argued that traditional organization methods like alphabetical by author, fiction/non-fiction or subject matter don’t work for everyone, adding that visual thinkers might remember the bright blue cover of the novel they read last summer, rather than who wrote it, or its title. The recent New York Observer piece interviewed a professional organizational designer named Laura Cattano on the subject of color-coding bookshelves, who noted that thanks to technology, people are reading on their phones, they are reading on their Kindles, they are reading online.

Then Williams empties the living room of everything but the sofas. She says the room has good architecture high ceilings, a big window, nice color but its furniture needs “tightening” (moved closer together), and the room needs focal points to create atmosphere. Williams starts with the sleeper sofas, which are too far apart for Stallings’ liking. Williams tries linking the sectionals with a corner table and the fit is perfect. With the sofas established, Williams tests placement for an area rug and coffee table.
