In this Chicago "smart kitchen," clever features add up to one user-friendly sink area. Tall pots and vases fit under the high faucet spout; a magnetic docking system guarantees the hand spray locks in place. An apron-front sink made of stainless steel won’t rust, stain or chip. Its zero-radius design (meaning straight, not rounded, corners) maximizes usable space. Details: http://www.midwestliving.com/homes/kitchen-tour-smarty-plans?page=4
Chip and Joanna Gaines may be miracle workers but they simply can't do everything. So when they opened Magnolia House B&B they recruited semi-retirees Rob and Marianne Ward as potential managers. First, though, they'd have to convince the Wards to move into the adjacent carriage house. And before that could happen, they'd have to undertake a major renovation on the carriage house itself.
