A: Clivia lilies, also known as Kaffir lilies, are native to South Africa where the name Kaffir is a perjorative. The genus Clivia was named after ... [full story]

Q: All my life I have wanted a tester bed. Now we've bought a house with low ceilings - just eight feet - in the bedrooms, too low for a four-poster, but I'm determined! Is there a way to achieve the look of a four-poster that doesn't look tacky? A: And how! Forget "tacky" and focus on the elegant bedroom we show here, where the "four-poster" is a clever illusion conjured by New York designer ... [full story]

Q: Enclosed is a photo of a matching washbowl and pitcher I purchased in an antiques shop in the early 1960s. On the bottom of each piece are the words "Eastern Flower - Wedgwood - Etruria - England."

A: Josiah Wedgwood founded ... [full story]

Q: Yarrow is taking over my wildflower bed. The bed is quite large and contains many varieties of wildflowers. But just like last year, the yarrow is running rampant this spring. My attempts at controlling - digging and pulling roots - don't seem to be enough. Is there something I can do to at least control the spread? A: Another case of a good flower gone bad. Isn't that always the case? When we want ... [full story]

Q: What to do with our long narrow bathroom that serves two bedrooms upstairs, including the guest room? We want it to be a bit dressier than just a hall bath. We'd rather not switch out the fixtures, but would if it makes a big difference. A: It will if you choose "statement" plumbing, out-of-the-ordinary fixtures that will become a focal point to compensate for the bath's small size and awkward proportions. Think sculpture that's ...

Can you tell me the names ... [full story]

Well that's where Patrick Raymond, a former advertising executive, and his ShowerBow come in.
