Before & After: The World’s Narrowest Kitchen Opens Up — Sweeten

I can’t even look at a picture of this kitchen without feeling claustrophobic, so I can’t imagine how Anne lived with it (and cooked in it, even) for almost a decade. I think it goes without saying that after cooking for ten years in a kitchen that measured only 27 square feet (no, really) she was ready for a change.

Alice, When Guests Bring Wine, Should I Open It or Save It? — Ask Alice: Advice for Life at Home

Dear Alice,

When someone brings wine to a dinner party do you offer to open it up right away or is it considered a gift? I have some close friends that come over and we usually open it because they know we don’t know much about wine. But recently we had some new friends over and they did not tell us either way. I just want to be a good host. Thank you!

Signed,
Want to do the Right Thing

Emmanuelle & Jean Baptiste’s Converted Taxi Garage in Paris — International Video House Tour

Name: Emmanuelle Messean and Jean Baptiste Mariou
Location: Saint-Denis — Paris, France
Size: 85 square meters (915 square feet)
Years lived in: 5 years

Traveling to the North of Paris is filled with architectural delights (like the first medieval basilica), and this trip to the suburban community of Saint Denis to visit Emmanuelle and Jean Baptiste’s home (that’s been converted from a former taxi garage) does not disappoint. Their home is a mix of textures, travel finds and architectural interest.

The Closet Cure: Finding Your True Love(s!) — The Closet Cure Assignment #2

Ah, true love. It often strikes at first sight (across a crowded boutique, a dress, sweater, or pair of jeans, catches your eye, calls your name and you just have to give in and try it on). Before you know it, you simply can’t get enough of the one you’ve fallen for (you find yourself wearing that new jacket even when its a little too hot or too cold for comfort, just because it makes you feel so good to have it on). And, like any true love, it grows over time and has real lasting power (you’ve had those boots reheeled how many times?). Today, your assignment is about recognizing and recording your own true clothing sweethearts – and it’s totally fine if you have lots of pieces you are passionate about – monogamy is not a requirement when it comes to wardrobe affairs.

It’s not too late to join, we’re just getting started! Sign up now:

Home Renovation in Texas Unveils Bold and Playful Interiors

Exterior with pool - home renovation Texas

Dillon Kyle Architects completed the renovation of Bolsover Residence, an eclectic home located in Houston, Texas. To achieve a better layout, a portion of the initial first level was removed and replaced with a “buffer” structure that connects the kitchen and den to the the backyard.

“The main idea behind the renovation was to open up the existing space in the home so the original mass of the house could be appreciated and enjoyed,” the architects said. “It was important to keep the scale of the original façade so that it remains consistent with the style of the houses in this 1930’s Houston Heights neighborhood.”

Step inside and you will discover a design with a twist. “The interior is bold and playful, in a reflection of the owner’s creativity and vivacious personality,” the architects added. “Walls are saturated in an aquamarine blue and white color palette, and décor and furnishings are bright yellow, red and hot pink.” [Photos courtesy of Dillon Kyle Architects]

Working from Home: 3 Healthy Truths No One Tells You

I received some excellent pieces of advice when I started my freelance writing business. “Maybe line up some actual work before you quit your day job!” was one. “Hire a certified tax accountant to mock your income!” was another. Wise words all. But three years later, I realize there were some crucial health-related insights I didn’t hear—and wish I had.
