Hi Jeanette, I have a quest/on regarding floor cover/ngs. I have Hardwood flooring throughout my home but would like to use area rugs. How do I know what size rug to get for the available spaceP Dee Oiordm'to . Groveland Hi Dee, Thank you for your question. Here are a few rules of thumb I use when designing: .... In a living room, l like to place the area rug about 18" under the front feet of the furni- ture. Not knowing where the rug ends gives a verdi spacious feeling to the room. In a dining room place an area rug that 'will extend between 24"-26" beyond the size of the ] [ table. This will keep the chairs on the rug when I I pushed back. Use a very low pile rug and don t [ [ be afraid to use a bright bold pattern. In a bedroom, place an area rug to extend . + 30"-36"from the sff&s and foot ofti'{e bed/ b 3i'- :+ I. -the head of the bed have the rug come 9ff the t " - "+ ' ~ ' " ~'+ " : .,-a +,:'?"-'Y'L'~; ~) :| Wall !2 infront of the nigtg ands.+ I iTi s aliowS"the+rug to b underfodt ":-L: .!+. when you get out of bed.

Boston Hi Candace, Yes mixing metals can add character and depth to a space, In the world of design back in the '80s, you didn't mix metals." That no longer holds. For pops of color, add warm metals like gold and brass; for a more modern look, add silver and chromes. m, What are the top d cor staples that every space should haveP Ooi! Winsel . Medford, MA Hi Gall, Every designer has their own "hand in design and how they approach a project. I feel a space should have balance, color, :rhythm and unity: A staple for me is adding an ele- ment of surprise. This could be in an accent color, a piece of furniture, or a very interesting fabric.

He was a mem- ber of a gentry family. On the death of their parents, Richard's eider brother became heir to the estate, but he was not old enough to inherit. When he came of age, his brother took possession of his lands, but was required to pay a medieval form of death duty that left the family so impoverished that Richard had to work for him on the farm. His brother also made Rich- ard heir to the estate.

For several years, however, be- cause of the King's opposition, Richard was a wanderer in his own diocese. He was entirely dependent on the charity and hospitality of the people and clergY who defied the King. In 1247, the King relented and, amid the rejoicing of the people, Richard was allowed to enter his cathedral at Chiches- ter.

A rainstorm threatened to stall the event, but after a 10-minute shower, the storm passed and it turned into a beautiful late- summer day. The moment the last rain drop fell, the courts were swept and Chris Zizza took his position at center court to explain the rules, and the tour- nament was off and running. The annual tournament is open to all ages and skill levels, and is a fun, family-oriented day that includes a Joe Pace & Sons catered barbecue, as well as Spadafora Slush and a tournament T-shirt for all players. Each team that makes it past the 3 round wins for their sponsored bracket and takes home a golf-style shirt embroidered with the bocce and sponsor logos. Over the past 13 years, the friendly rivalry amongst play- ers has continued to grow as the teams vie for the trophies awarded to the first place team and first place sponsor. This year, the winning team of Natale DeMarco and Matteo Norcia, representing Hanover Liquors, played a very exciting final match against Giovanni DiPi- erro and Ciriaco DiPierro on the Voga Wine team. Frequent champs Bob and Peggy Magri coached less experienced play- ers as the matches progressed. City Councilor Sal LaMattina and Representative Aaron Michlewitz, as well as former Senate President Robert Trava- glini, all showed their support for the charitable cause by par- ticipating in the tournament. State Senator Joe Boncore was also in attendance to enjoy watching the matches. It was great fun to see the junior teams holding their own against the adult teams. Chris- tian and Oiulia Amaya played three impressive rounds to secure the 2016 junior trophy.
