Designing Dream Homes in Animal Crossing

frank lampard

A peek inside the Animal Crossing dwelling of Jaime Brown, a real-life kitchen designer.

You enter Jaime Brown’s island at the airport, a rickety thing on a wooden pier out in the ocean with a single gate, staffed by two loquacious dodos. You walk on a long dirt path that winds through cliffs and waterfalls, past white roses and chrysanthemums, next to the occasional pink pansy. The structure comes into relief across a slatted bridge that crosses a little river filled with fish. It’s a light blue Tudor with a gray door that greets you with a wreath made of shells, a slate gray well just to the right, and a little seating area with a matching white birch couch and chair set on a white flagstone circle out front. It is unassuming, quaint, and quiet. Anyone who has attempted to create such a space in Animal Crossing: New Horizons,

After months holed up at home, we’re all enjoying spending as much time as possible outdoors this summer. Our backyards and patios have become our favorite places to work, eat, and relax, and we’re constantly looking for ways to upgrade these spaces—especially since lawn updates can help increase home value. One low-cost way to extend your time outside? Lighting. 

According to Amazon, the most popular outdoor decor product on its site right now is a battery-operated patio umbrella light.

Sticky notes on the bathroom door and wipes by the coffee pot. Employees find new rules as they return to the office.

CHICAGO — When employees of Cushman & Wakefield started trickling back into the office Monday, they were given face masks, hand sanitizer and sticky notes.

The face masks and hand sanitizer were fairly obvious pandemic accoutrements, but the sticky notes?

The Chicago-based commercial real estate firm is using them to make sure there aren’t more than two people in a bathroom at a time.

“I’ve got a sticky, so when I go to the bathroom I put it on the door,” said Vicki Noonan, managing principal and Chicago market lead for the company. “There shouldn’t be more than two stickies on the door.”

Some offices are starting to reopen with a limited number of employees who are volunteering to return. As they do, companies are piloting new safety policies to protect workers from a health crisis that shows few signs of waning. The early steps, from practical safeguards to quirky

Shelter is a video streaming service about design and architecture

frank lampard

There’s a new contender in the online video streaming market today that’s hoping to dominate a distinct niche of the content spectrum. A mix of nerdy and beautiful, the service focuses exclusively on architecture and design.

Featuring short and feature-length documentaries, design magazine video content, and its own original series, the service, named Shelter, aims to be a one-stop stream for the finest films about buildings.

Shelter was created by Dustin Clare, an Australian actor and producer known for his starring role in the Starz gladiator miniseries Spartacus: Gods of the Arena. The idea came from he and his wife’s interest in architecture and design—and the challenge of finding good shows and films about it. “It was really fairly disparate and in a lot of places and of really varying quality,” Clare says.

Pulling it all into one place, Clare says the service will have about 200 hours of

Published

Whether you are adding a new shower in your bathroom or updating an old shower, walk-in showers with glass doors are still very popular.

When you are planning the project, you and your shower glass professional need to discuss what type of shower enclosure and glass doors will best meet your lifestyle.

The exact dimensions of your shower space will be needed, as well as how much room you have between the shower and other fixtures, and the amount of time you want to invest in daily cleanup.


 Frameless clear glass enclosures are still the most popular choice for showers. A protective coating can be added to protect the glass from hardwater and soap scum.

Frameless glass makes a space feel modern, larger and open. Clear glass allows you to showcase tilework, and beautiful hardware inside
