Other sections of your notebook can be sorted by rooms, which can hold pictures of furniture and corresponding swatches of fabric, paint samples, flooring ideas, lamps and even art. This will help you visualize your room and foresee any adjustments in colors or patterns. It will also help you determine if you need more goods for the room or project.

In terms of measurements, the more the better. You’ve all heard the construction adage, “Measure twice; cut once.” The same holds true for any aspect of the design project. You may have measured the size of the window, but did you measure how far the sill is from the floor, the space above the edge of the window to the ceiling or crown molding, or the space on either side of the window? While you may think these dimensions are excessive, they are not. They’ll be timesavers when you need

EU citizens have launched a campaign for the government to give them physical proof of their right to remain in Britain after Brexit – amid fears that they could be locked out of homes, jobs and healthcare by technical problems.

The Independent reported this week on how the Brexit settlement scheme’s “digital-only” design is already causing problems for EU nationals, some of whom are already being held up in airports and facing delays in moving house.

But campaigners worry that the scheme’s flaws could have even more serious consequences, denying EU citizens living in Britain their rights to homes, jobs, and healthcare – all of which require them to prove their right to live in the UK.

Under the scheme, EU nationals are not given an ID card or other document as proof of residence once they are accepted, but have to rely on an

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,

Called the Haciendas, the project will include more than six dozen high-design homes being built near Fort Worth Avenue in West Dallas.

The one-of-a-kind development is a project of Oaxaca Interests, the same company that built the popular Sylvan Thirty mixed-use development on Sylvan Avenue west of downtown.

Just a few blocks away, Oaxaca Interests has built the first four of what it plans to be a larger group of style-forward houses on North Edgefield Avenue.

Designed by award-winning architect Lake Flato of San Antonio and Austin, the homes marry an outside industrial look with bright and airy interior spaces.

They range in size from 1,550 to just under 1,900 square feet, with stucco exteriors and metal roofs, and they’re built in joined modules.

“The kitchen and living area is in one module, and the
