Ask Jennifer Adams: Using bright colors for interiors

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 06:31:40 GMT2016-12-09T06:31:40Z

Q: Is there a rule about painting rooms in different colors? My partner just got back from the paint store, and they refused to sell him more colors until he tried them all out on the wall. We both love bright colors - him even more than me. Is there a wrong or right way to do this?

Good Eye: From beer suds to soap suds, this modernist factory building stays busy

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 11:35:34 GMT2016-12-04T11:35:34Z

We keep hearing about how America doesn't make anything anymore, yet a low-slung modernist factory has been chugging along a mere two blocks north of Philadelphia's downtown for more than 70 years. Today, its assembly lines turn out a variety of industrial cleaners for National Chemical Laboratories. But when the plant at 10th and Callowhill opened in 1935, the liquid that coursed through its network of pipes was beer.



Ask Jennifer Adams: Refinishing furniture - should you or shouldn't you?

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 06:31:47 GMT2016-12-02T06:31:47Z

Q: My husband and I moved into a new house for our growing family - our third child is due in just two months. My aunt just gave me a complete, stained-wood bedroom set, which we need. She says it's antique and we should keep it the way it is to keep its value and protect it, but with kids, pets, and life, how can I protect it? Can I just use it now, let it get scratched because it will, and refinish it later? - Q. A: For starters, congratulations on your baby and the new house.



More men in the kitchen means more masculine taste in design

Nizam Ali, co-owner of Ben's Chili Bowl, a Washington landmark, spends his workdays in an industrial-style commercial kitchen. You might think he would want to replicate that form at the home he shares with his wife, Jyotika Vazirani, and their 11-year-old son, but it has a nearly opposite look.



Ask Jennifer Adams: How to warm up a drafty guest room

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 06:31:10 GMT2016-11-25T06:31:10Z

Q: We got married this year, and my in-laws are coming to our house for the holidays. I'm so nervous. I want everything to be great. We have a small extra room we want to turn into a guest room. But it's the coldest room in our house, as it was once a drafty, old porch. Besides lots of blankets, what are some easy ways to make sure guests stay comfortable?
