Q: We have the smallest-ever breakfast area opening off our kitchen. My husband built a banquette and hung a light over the table, but it still makes us claustrophobic! I'm thinking of wallpapering. Would stripes be a good idea, just to relieve the squeezed look?
A: Especially if you run the stripes horizontally around the walls. It's a failsafe optical illusion.

The more they design cars for young people, the better they fit old people. Think Pontiac Aztek, Honda Element, Chrysler PT Cruiser, Scion xB, Suzuki SX4 hatchback and, more recently, the Nissan Cube and the Kia Soul.
Auto marketers cringe when their trend-setting, versatile vehicle could be labeled an old-person's car, but function and comfort have no age limit. Young people will be comfortable in the Soul, and old people will like being seen in a young-person's car.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Truman Capote's writing of Breakfast at Tiffany's, this book also contains several other short stories. While almost everyone remembers Audrey Hepburn's reed like figure in the movie, fewer remember the book about Holly Golightly, a complete study in being quixotic. It is almost a given that Truman Capote's literary ability in composing this story was also taken lightly.

This fall, they're irresistible. Ladies are definitely going to want a new pair of shoes, maybe two or three or more. Step out and take a platform on bold shapes and colors. One new pair of boots that stretches over your knees or a pair of purple suede pumps can do wonders for your wardrobe.

In our culture, it often seems that our children are much more progressive than many of us stodgy old-schoolers. Most kids can text, download MP3 files, and tell you what their carbon footprint is without missing a beat. The rest of us probably have a hard time doing even one of those things.
