Although home to a baby at the moment, this bedroom is ready to transition to a bigger boy's room with twin beds in a sweet blue plaid. The armchair rocker works well for mom and dad, and will always be the perfect place for storytime.

This tasteful bedroom was designed for a 12-year-old boy. It incorporates his love of animals and sports and is sophisticated enough to grow with him into his teen years and beyond. The slight woodsy feel of the space meshes well with the home's proximity to a nature reserve.

Try a new kind of holiday wreath this year. Use all-natural materials found around the kitchen and yard to form an icy decorative element for an outdoor space. To make this wreath you'll need: a Bundt cake pan; tree cuttings; berries; pine fronds; dried flowers; ribbon; a freezer; water; a penny nail; and a hammer.
No need to use matchy-matchy dishware at your holiday open house; an assortment of tartans and plaids mixed with neutrals adds to the party's cozy charm. Here, Ralph Lauren salad plates are paired with mint-and-gold dessert plates.
