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?

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?

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.

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.
