Ask Jennifer Adams: To remove wainscoting or not, that is the question

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 06:31:04 GMT2017-01-20T06:31:04Z

Q: I'm renting my parents' old house, an older ranch-style with low ceilings. The big kitchen/living/dining rooms are great for me and my roommates, but it's decorated with fake wood panels that go halfway up the walls, with wallpaper above that and dark trim. The whole space feels so dark and depressing to me. What can I do to make these rooms feel lighter? What would happen if I take off the wallpaper and wood?



Jinxed's mix of castoffs earns retail and social media love

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 19:20:37 GMT2017-01-19T19:20:37Z

I miss the old Philadelphia, say the black-and-white bumper stickers stacked by the cash register in Jinxed's Fishtown store. Although the "Philadelphia" font comes from this newspaper's masthead, the sentiment is all business owner Mike Supermodel.

Ask Jennifer Adams: Workout room in garage

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 06:31:16 GMT2017-01-13T06:31:16Z

Q: My husband and I are house shopping. The one we are looking at is older but nicely remodeled and move-in ready, except there is no place for working out. We are both avid athletes and love to work out together. My dream is to have my own home gym. Would it be worth converting the garage or should we leave that alone?



Good Eye: The grandest lobby in Philadelphia is grand again

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 16:50:45 GMT2017-01-07T16:50:45Z

In the early 20th century, Philadelphia's Horace Trumbauer was the go-to architect for America's newly rich industrial barons. When he wasn't designing their classically inspired townhouses and country retreats, he was providing them with grand hotels to stage their fancy balls. The largest and most ornate of these was the Benjamin Franklin Hotel at Ninth and Chestnut Street.



Ask Jennifer Adams: When planning a bathroom remodel, where should it go?

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 06:31:07 GMT2017-01-06T06:31:07Z

Q: We are in the dreaming stage of remodeling our house. It has an unfinished attic we want to convert into a new master suite. With only two bedrooms and one bath on the main level, this will be a big improvement to our house and our growing family. But because of an old furnace chimney, we can't quite figure out where the bathroom should go.
