    How to safely and spookily decorate your room | Dining and Housing

    Dorms across campus decorate their halls with spooky Halloween decorations.  Miya Heckman / Contributor With Halloweekend less than a week away, we have officially entered spooky season.

    Fall Home Design: 20 memorable NW Living moments (plus 5 bonus bathtubs!)

    THEY FLASH LIKE FIREFLIES: vivid, unbidden, briefly flitting mini-memories — sometimes individually, sometimes in a swarm, always somewhat magically. Out of the dim twilight of that nowhere bridging Right This Second and Some Other Time, they materialize: a home. A room. A setting. A conversation. All originate from one dusty-but-apparently-not-totally-rusty attic of the past: NW Living, the architecture and design feature that was a weekly staple in these pages for decades. It makes sense, I guess, that those stories, and places, and memories, would linger. When people invite you into their homes — whether it’s through a tattered screen door at Grampa’s lopsided fishing cabin or a mahogany masterpiece framed…

    How to Get the Most Out of Your Garden All Year Round

    Maryline Damour is founder of design-build firm Damour Drake as well as the Kingston Design Connection. She’s also an avid gardener and chef.

    A Panorama of Design – The New York Times

    This article is part of our latest Design special report, about creative people finding fresh ways to interpret ideas from the past. Remaking a London Landmark The Victorian-era retail entrepreneur William Whiteley long dreamed of building a London emporium to rival the Crystal Palace in its grandeur, a place where, as he purportedly put it, you could buy everything from a pin to an elephant. But in 1907, he was murdered by a man claiming to be his son, and it was left to his acknowledged sons to realize his vision.
