Stay tuned for a DIY ranch house makeover and a primer on solar paneling.

  • Izabella rounds up 10 essentials for a summer block party (or barbecue or picnic or backyard gathering).
  • There’s no nicer place to be right now than a screened porch. One of our favorites belongs to architects Calvin Tsao and Zack Mckown of Tsao & Mckown–it’s Tuesday’s Steal This Look.
  • Of all the countless ways to shoo away flies, this curious contraption wins the beauty prize. All will be revealed in Wednesday’s Accessories post.
  • In Thursday’s Remodeling 101, Christine presents the latest word on solar paneling, including how much sunshine is required. This Maine house has solar panels and a standing seam metal roof.
  • Where to source well-made US flags, new and vintage? Watch for our July 4 roundup.
