    I’d have to say my most favorite is the “How to decorate around a flat panel TV” and in particular the Country Living image with the TV built into the distressed wood enclosure above the contemporary fireplace. Very sharp! Second would be the “…counter or bar stool” As consumers, we really don’t think about the size of these things until we are shopping and then it can be confusing – this is great information!
