If you do any baking at all, you’ve probably learned about the importance of carefully measuring your ingredients. A carelessly measured cup of flour that’s packed down or heaped up can sabotage the hours of effort you just expended in the kitchen. Need a refresher on measuring flour? See our test kitchen team’s go-to “scoop and level” (otherwise known as “spoon and sweep”) method.

But there’s one problem with this method: If you’ve ever looked at recipes written by professional pastry chefs—or if you’ve ever tried to bake from a cookbook from just about any country other than the U.S.— you’ve probably noticed that many of them measure their ingredients by weight rather than volume. This is inconvenient for most American home cooks who are used to their trusty measuring cups and likely don’t own a scale. But once you get

Emma Roberts is expecting her first child with Garret Hedlund. See inside her star-studded baby shower, complete with a vagina-inspired bouquet.

Emma Roberts announced her first pregnancy at the end of August, revealing she is expecting a baby boy with boyfriend Garrett Hedlund.

This weekend, she posted photos from the magic garden-themed baby shower her friends threw her. E! got details on the party, with a source explaining that it was outdoors and intimate due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“Emma’s baby shower was Saturday afternoon at a friend’s house,” the source said. “It was a co-ed shower with about 15 people. It was outside and everyone stayed distanced.”

The guest list had quite a few celebs, according to the source: “Kristen Stewart was there with [her girlfriend] Dylan Meyer, [Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend] Camila Morrone came with her mum, Lily Kershaw. Emma’s mum

You might not expect a house brimming with woodland-inspired whimsy to be located just outside of the Virginia headquarters of the CIA. You also might not expect such a playful home to be owned by two lawyers. But Atlanta, Georgia-based interior designer Gina Sims created just that with her client’s McLean, Virginia home, which is charmingly dubbed the House of Whimsy.

The House of Whimsy is adorned with color, quirky patterns and enchanting furniture.

The whimsy—evident in everything from the formal living room’s cockatoo chairs to the crocodile print tile in the kitchen—was an aesthetic specifically requested by Sims’s clients.

“I think everything that they saw there was kind of buttoned up, way more traditional,” says Sims of the hoemowners, who previously lived in a townhouse. “Really simple, very stately, which is beautiful and wonderful. But it just wasn’t them, which is interesting because they’re attorneys, so

A few minutes into an episode of “Dream Home Makeover,” a home improvement series premiering on Netflix on Oct. 16, an anxious homeowner frets about a minor flaw in the family-room fireplace, an asymmetry that the wife describes as “pretty dramatic.”

If you’ve watched enough home improvement television, you know this scene is meant to cue the eye rolls. But Shea McGee, the show’s perky co-star and the creative force behind the Salt Lake City design firm Studio McGee, cheerfully downplays the issue, promising the couple that the half-inch error will fade into the background once their grand 7,900-square-foot home is complete.

Her down-to-earth approach soothes her clients’ nerves, but also threads a needle for Netflix, which has decided that the salve homebound Americans need right now is an escapist lineup of shows about how to make the homes we can’t escape look prettier. In recent months, the network has
