  • It doesn't feel at home

    It doesn't feel at home
    THERE is a breed of stealth catalog that slips into the house camouflaged against Restoration Hardware or Pottery Barn. Close examination reveals that the slick, full-color pages do not feature $1,299 beds and $1,599 dining tables, but something decidedly...
  • Salvaged in style

    Salvaged in style
    CARRIE CARR knows a good piece of trash when she sees it. Take the kitchen cabinet that she salvaged from an apartment building under renovation and turned into a glass-fronted display case. Or the living room piece — "my gangsta coffee table,"...
  • The round bed comes full circle

    The round bed comes full circle
    REMEMBER the revolving circular bed from which the Mike Meyers' character Austin Powers proclaimed his shag-ability? Laugh if you must, but the Lazy Susan sleeper — that semaphore of swinging bachelorhood — is no longer a joke to be found...
  • Three salesmen who put male shoppers at ease

    Three salesmen who put male shoppers at ease
    John Fogarty is the youngest and -- at 6 feet tall -- the shortest of three brothers. He is also my husband. The first night we met, some 4 1/2 years ago, he was wearing a gorgeous wool houndstooth sport coat. Except the coat was two sizes too big, a...
  • 'The Girl Who Played With Fire' by Stieg Larsson

    'The Girl Who Played With Fire' by Stieg Larsson
    Already, a nimbus of legend surrounds the story: In late 2004, Swedish journalist Stieg Larsson delivered to his publisher three finished manuscripts -- the opening salvos in a rumored 10-part suspense narrative. Like a latter-day Sjöwall-Wahlöö, the...
  • The L.A. Phil's invitation to dream

    The L.A. Phil's invitation to dream
    I don't know that Baudelaire meant music in his poem "Invitation to the Voyage," when he thought of a world far away -- exotic, unobtainable, a land lost in love's gaze. "All is order there, and elegance," he wrote, "pleasure, peace and opulence." But I...
  • What do you do with a growing hamster family? Give them away

    We are wealthy with hamsters. Some families have no hamsters at all (which must leave a real hole in your heart). We have nine hamsters. Let me explain. As luck would have it, there is some sort of Cone of Fertility that hangs over our little home. Here,...
  • Dream defies loss of limbs

    Kellie Lim knows all too well what it is like to be a very sick child. Struck with a ravaging bacterial infection that destroys limbs, she became a triple amputee at age 8 and soon faced a life of prosthetics, wheelchairs and often-painful...

    Tejon Ranch pact would allow 26,000 homes on the range
    A coalition of environmental groups and a developer have agreed on a landmark plan to conserve 90% of the largest chunk of privately owned wilderness remaining in Southern California. The agreement ends years of debate over the fate of an untrammeled...
  • Melissa Joan Hart, TV's Sabrina, lists Sherman Oaks home

    Melissa Joan Hart, TV's Sabrina, lists Sherman Oaks home
    There are certain roles in Hollywood that, once cast, simply stick like glue. Sean Connery will always be James Bond. Anthony Hopkins will always be Hannibal Lecter. And Melissa Joan Hart will always be Sabrina the Teenage Witch, no matter how many...
  • AK Restaurant + Bar in Venice

    AK Restaurant + Bar in Venice
    It might seem that there is little as unlikely as a Scandinavian restaurant in Southern California, but for many years one of L.A.'s most celebrated spots was Scandia on Sunset Boulevard. It had closed by the time I came to town, but Gustaf Anders was...
