White subway tiles and wood walls and ceilings work together to create a restaurant dining room that feels contemporary and rustic simultaneously. Long tables offer a communal dining opportunity, a homey element; bars with stools bring diners even closer to the action in the open kitchen.
Consider using a portable caddie to gather and store balls, building blocks or action figures, so you can bring the items right to a playroom table or your backyard. As your kids grow out of their toys, the caddie can be used for holding utensils, garden tools or for a gift basket.

Tilt-and-turn windows, popular in Europe, can be opened two ways: with a side hinge that lets the sash swing horizontally and with a bottom hinge that permits the window to be opened like an awning window. The dual-action offers interesting flexibility for cleaning and for interior design.
Paper is the biggest organizing challenge in most offices. Make sure you have one designated location for all incoming papers that need your attention. A second tray is helpful for items that no longer need action but need to be filed. Just make sure to set aside time to file each week.

This view shows the light-filled library with large single hung vinyl windows and solar powered skylights that sits right off the kitchen, a space with an inviting seating area and stylish storage. This attractive spot in the home offers a place for more quiet conservation or reading, while still enjoying a close proximity to the main action in the kitchen and great room.
One of the most useful and creative designs of this open plan kitchen is the center island that syncs, back-to-back, new custom cabinetry with an antique wheeled cart. This allows the cook more elbow room on which to work and guests to relax at barstools while watching all the action taking place. The design also incorporates an industrial feel to this transitional-styled kitchen for an eclectic touch.
Take action to protect prized shrubs from deer browsing. If you spot hoof prints in the snow, you need to act fast to prevent plant damage. Netting tossed over shrubs can prevent feeding. Use clothespins to hold the netting in place, attaching it to a few branches. Spray plants with a deer repellant to make twigs less tasty.
Rollins' pool house is a great hangout for fairer skinned visitors who want to hang out there but still be in on the poolside action. "If you're pale, you can still be a part of it," she says. The retro lattice motif as well as the navy and white color scheme integrate the pool house with the rest of the garden. There's a bathroom, a storage closet and a wet bar though Rollins prefers to bring coolers outside for parties rather than bother with the maintenance hassle of an outdoor fridge.
This pavilion is perfectly situated on the edge of the grassy space. This allows community members a great view of the grass in case of a special event such as an outdoor concert or simply watching the neighborhood kids play a game of baseball in the summer. Out of the fray of the main action, this pavilion is a cool place for an intimate gathering or simply a cool hangout spot.
Take time at least every other day to walk through your garden and look closely at plants. When pests are attacking, you’ll see signs of their presence. Holes in leaves, small black seed-looking things on leaves, insect clusters and webbing on plants are just a few common signs of a pest outbreak. When you think you have a bug issue, take time to identify the culprit so you can take appropriate action to curtail their munching. Don’t ignore pests. It only takes a few days for insects to damage a plant.
Il Giallo Osteria and Bar in Sandy Springs is a chef-forward Italian experience located close to all of Atlanta's action but with the unusual appeal of plenty of free parking (yes, it is a big deal in this valet and paid parking-crazy town) in a handsome, open space. Chef and co-owner Jamie Adams features fresh, homemade pasta in his open-kitchen for diners who enjoy a little cooking show entertainment with their meal. Adams' agnolotti with brown butter and sage has been featured on Food Network's The Best Thing I Ever Ate, but there are plenty of other culinary delights on offer including polpette turkey and duck meatballs, a distinctive calamari studded with capers, and a short rib ravioli and a rotating cast of pasta dishes that make this a local favorite. With a talented pastry chef onboard, desserts are just as notable and some of the stars of the show, including the strawberry jam and mascarpone strawberry pizza, bomboloni and a decadent hazelnut bar like a European candy bar with a haute twist.
