It’s common for your child to be hungry after school and extracurricular activities. But if their idea of an after-school snack is grabbing drive-thru French fries or opening a bag of potato chips, they could be taking in hundreds of unnecessary – and unhealthy – calories.
Around the time my firstborn was learning to walk, my wife and I tried a tag-team approach to parenting. I’d take most of the early morning shifts and then head to the office. Most evenings, no matter what was happening at work, I’d log back in at home, and my wife would pursue her career as a modern dancer. Our schedules were so distinct that we shared a single unlimited subway pass.
I was raised by an interior designer and even I have been guilty of making rookie decorating moves. In fact, just last year – mind you, I have been writing about design for eight years – I made one of the most rookie moves: I hung my kitchen pendant so low that I bump my head on it. And no I have not gotten around to fixing it. So let me just put this out there: it’s okay to be a beginner or to be oblivious to what decorators consider “the basics.” You live and you learn. That’s what you’re here for, right? Today I’m giving you the CliffsNotes on Decorating 101. Follow these and you’ll have the framework for a truly beautiful space – and nothing to be too ashamed of when your most discerning friend comes over.

See, for example, Alvar Aalto's Paimio chair (1939) and Charles and Ray Eames' classic LCW or Lounge Chair Wood (1945). Now the versatile, inexpensive material - comprised of thin sheets of wood veneer (with grains layered in alternating directions for added strength) - has become a mainstay in contemporary, eco-friendly interiors, seen in everything from wall panels to bookcases to bed frames.
BALTIMORE - When we picked up the 50-pound black-and-tan mixed-breed dog from the Maryland SPCA 10 years ago, we weren't sure what to expect. We hadn't met him, or even seen a picture. All we knew was that he'd spent two months in transit to Baltimore after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast.
Angela shares an apartment with her 6-year-old cat Andy. Andy has spent all his life indoors. Recently, Angela has noticed small amounts of blood in his stool. The stool is otherwise normal.
