Wallpaper Textures and Designs
Q: I happen to love wallpaper, maybe because I grew up in my great-aunt's house. She was English and had wallpaper in every room. Now, my problem is that I have a contemporary house and a very contemporary husband. We've been living with white-painted walls, but I'm bored. Any suggestions?
A: You haven't been doing your homework, pun intentional.

Black and white for evening
Special occasions call for dressing in a special way. Whether you're in search of a great new cocktail dress or you just want to give your jeans a more festive touch, we all want to look our best, especially during the holidays. That calls for wearing clothes that fit the bodies we have. That's why Stacy London and Clinton Kelly — hosts of TLC's "What Not to Wear" — promote "dressing in the present."
In other words, instead of worrying about squeezing into another tight sheath dress after enjoying a Thanksgiving feast, take a breather and think about your wardrobe in a new way.
