While many are of the opinion that eating pizza on a regular basis can be very hazardous to a person’s health, it is not the pizza but the ingredients which cause health issues. So if at all you are a pizza lover, then you can easily build a pizza oven at home and use organic produce to create your custom-made pizza which is very healthy for you.
Pizza making is a very pleasure-giving practice in which you can involve your family as well, to create a hearty meal. You might think that building the pizza oven by yourself would be a tough task, but is much simpler than you think it is. Like bread baking ovens, even pizza ovens are made of fire resistant materials, which avoid all mishaps. Making pizza oven at home, might take some of your time, but it is very much worth the effort and time put into it.

I’ve posted Rose Uniacke‘s gorgeous London home before but it’s always worth repeating. Vogue has featured new photos of the house in the March 2017 issue that Rose describes as, “monastery meets Venetian palazzo.” I don’t know if I ever really noticed the unfinished floors before which I really love against the grandeur of the house. Perhaps someone else would have renovated the house to the hilt but since Rose is an antiques dealer in addition to designer, she had the good sense to make everything look old and original. A friend describes it as, “restrained elegance” which is a perfect description.

This 1970s Tim Organ-designed modernist property in Chew Stoke, Somerset has a familiar name behind it.
At least, familiar to our site readers. You might recall this place in Chewton Mendip in the same county from last year, which had a striking extension courtesy of Robert and Tim Organ. It wasn’t their only project, with an impressive back catalogue of builds to their names.
This time it is Tim on his own, putting this place together just a couple of years later in 1970.
Has it changed? We would guess it has, but we suspect not a great deal. The agent mentions that some areas have been refurbished, not least the kitchen. But overall, there is a good amount of originality here.
A look at the photos obviously highlights the angled ceilings, the wood panelling and the large open reception space. Elsewhere, everything looks pretty fresh, as if this place has been looked after and updated as and when required. But the look and feel is still very much the original era.
As for space, you head up a ‘generous’ driveway / parking area which leads to the large single garage. A further pathway to the side of the property leads to the front door, which in turn opens to the reception hall, then onto the sitting room via double doors.
That room has sliding doors leading to the patio area and beyond, as well as a window overlooking the rear garden and ‘feature’ fireplace. More double doors access that refurbished kitchen, with access outside from there. This area of the house also has a garden room with two sets of sliding doors to the patio and the rear garden.
At the other end of the house are the bedrooms, which include the master bedroom, two further double bedrooms, a very distinctive family bathroom and a shower room.
Outside is that garage we mentioned, as well ‘an attractive garden’, which is a mix of lawn and established plants.
An interesting place with potential to sharpen up and take up a notch or two. £625,000 is the asking price.

I wasn’t joking around about my need to Konmari my apartment. I spent my President’s Day editing and organizing my hall coat closet. I’m very lucky to have a decent sized coat closet in addition to a large clothes closet in my New York apartment. I’ve lived here for five and a half years though so it has become stuffed with coats, Christmas decorations, and clutter. I use the coat closet several times a day and this disorganization was driving me crazy so I finally had to rectify this situation.
Once I removed everything from the closet, it was painted the same color as the living room. While it was drying, I combined the Christmas decorations into two plastic bins, cleaned out a box that didn’t contain anything important, and reorganized the rest into new baskets from The Container Store. I also edited out five winter coats that I will donate to Housing Works tomorrow. Now my coats have room to breathe in the closet. I also have room to add new coats although, I’m not allowed to buy any more grey coats or tan trenches.
The Konmari Method suggests organizing by category but I think it’s easy for most people to organize by one area at a time so it doesn’t become overwhelming. Whatever way you decide to spring clean, the result will always be satisfying and worthwhile.
Needless to say, this took a bit of time which is why there isn’t a longer post today. I’ll be back tomorrow with our regularly scheduled programing. Thank you for understanding.
Using an old pair of jeans and an IKEA Knagglig box, I made a really handy rustic ottoman. Not only does it look awesome it is a footstool, extra seat and handy magazine store all in one. Being on casters it’s really nifty too, the kids love to whizz around the living room on it. You can personalize your ottoman by stenciling your family name on the side of the crate and by using an old pair of your favorite jeans for the upholstered seat.
I love the industrial/rustic vibe of this ottoman. I have it in my living room but it would also be great for a man cave or teen bedroom.
1. First, build the Knagglig box to the Ikea instructions and add the Rill casters to the base.
2. Using a black sharpie stencil your name to the crate.
3. Darken and seal the untreated wood with wax.
4. Make an upholstered lid. Cut plywood to size and stick down a piece of dense foam to it.
5. Cut off a leg of your jeans and cut open down the seam. Cover the foam with the jean securing with a staple gun. Glue the jeans waistband round the edge.
6. Fix 2 batons of wood to the underside of the lid to prevent it from slipping.
If the words sheet mask, Peach & Lily, 10-step skincare routine, and BB cream are familiar to you, then you’re probably up on the Korean beauty trend, which continues to grow in popularity in the US—partly because it’s lauded as a more natural, intentional approach to skincare, and partly because of the ridiculously cute packaging. I mean, moisturizing face mist in a pink bunny bottle? You had me at bunny!
Before you’ve done something, it’s pretty hard to know what you don’t know. When it comes to the complicated, terrifying steps required to buy your first home, there’s a lot of opportunity to not know. First-time home buyers Tiffany and Alan Goldstein bought a cute, chic Austin bungalow — and learned a few things about buying a home in the process.
