Struck by the mathematical intricacies required to design the home which played host to the 2015 San Francisco Decorator Showcase, designer Candace Barnes chose to incorporate geometric shapes throughout the grand entry and staircase.

Designer Angelica's Henry's creative juices were certainly flowing in her design of this modern home's powder room!

A tray ceiling painted with light and dark shades of gray and trimmed in white creates dimension over this stylish bedroom design.

Whether grown in its natural shape or prunted into a Christmas tree-like pyramid, aromatic rosemary makes a delightful holiday plant. While it's indoors, give your rosemary a sunny window and regular waterings. You can transplant rosemary into the garden, but before you do, give it a week or so in a sheltered spot to help it transition from your home to natural sunlight, wind and temperatures. Rosemary grown in the garden takes full sun.
This clever reading chair and bookcase combo was designed and produced by Tembolat Gugkaev, with help from his wife Ashlee Webb and Ryan Webb. Gugkaev lives mostly in the Caucasus Mountains in Ossetia-Alania, but will ship his design, which he calls “Tatik,” anywhere. Made mostly of MDF, its pyramid shape allows you to store your books on three sides, so you won’t have to get up to switch reading material.
