In the Post, I love "House Calls." I don't think I can ever get enough of before-and-afters. Plus, you can get a lot of tips on how to solve design dilemmas and some great finds at stores you may not have known of. Today's is a family room re-do by local designer Iantha Carley. What a huge difference. I love the activity table she chose, and I love how she worked in furniture from Ikea and Target.
The Times' article The New Antiquarians is, of course, spot on. I have been loving this trend. I don't embrace it completely -- full on, it's a little too dark for me -- but I like to mix it in to our colorful cottagey/vintage/eclectic decor (not sure what to call it...it's probably just "contemporary").
