  1. Shake Away Pests

    Hide

    Put a kitchen shaker to work in your garden; its a great tool for dispersing horticultural-grade diatomaceous earth. This nontoxic pesticide, which has sharp edges that kill slugs and bugs without chemicals, can be difficult to spread. But a shaker lets you dust an even ring on soil around plants.

  2. One Last Look

    Hide

    Two full-length mirrors hidden inside the doors (plus a third along the unit's back wall) provide a tailor's multiview reflection. This area houses items typically donned just before leaving -- shoes, ties, belts, and watches.

  3. Hollister House English Garden

    Hide

    Located stateside in the charming town of Washington, Connecticut, is a true gardening wonder: a quintessentially English garden.

    Hollister House Garden, named after the 1760 house around which it is built, was created by art and antiques dealer George Schoellkopf in the manner of such famous English landscapes as Sissinghurst and Great Dixter: formal in its structure, yet rather wild in its style of planting.

  4. Dust Jackets

    Hide

    Twenty-inch cloth napkins (or same-size squares of fabric) become protective covers for coats and vests that don't need to be stored in garment bags. Each is pierced in the center and reinforced with a grommet to slide over a hanger.

  6. Squeeze More Room Out of Small Quarters

    Hide

    In the compact laundry workstation and storage area of a small bathroom, the stacked European-style washer-dryer set economizes space. A shelf between units pulls out for folding items fresh from the dryer, then slides out of sight. A matchstick shade lowers all the way to the floor, gracefully hiding the utility area when guests are expected.
