TV Kitchens to Love: Modern Family

Modern Family

 

The cluttered epicenter of an on-the-go American family

The kitchen in Phil and Claire Dunphy’s house is not meant to be relaxing or peaceful. “This set reflects true family life, where it feels lived-in and highlights the busyness that every day brings,” says production designer Claire Bennett, who took over for the original designer, Richard Berg, before Season 5. The photo below was snapped at a rare moment of organization.

TV Kitchens to Love: Castle

Castle

 

A masculine kitchen for a single guy– and his daughter… and his mom

The entire kitchen was built around the $1,300 Kohler faucet because production designer Alfred Sole fell in love with its innovative look. From there, Sole worked with the actors who play mystery writer Richard Castle and his live-in mom, Martha, to create a space they felt comfortable in.

DIY March Madness Pillow Cases

If March Madness means your television is turned to college hoops all month long, show your school pride by giving your couch a spirited makeover: Temporarily transform your favorite team tees into game-day decor. Don’t worry– your shirts are still wearable when the season’s over. What a slam-dunk DIY project!
 

 

1. Gather your supplies

Clear off a workspace and have your supplies handy. Slide the pillow form into the T-shirt, making sure the logo is centered. Lay the pillow flat on your work surface with the front of the shirt face down.

 

Supplies:

Square pillow form

Team logo T-shirt

Colorful felt

Peel-and-stick Velcro tape

Safety pins

 

2. Pin it down

Fold the next of the shirt over and down the back of the pillow and secure with safety pins. Fold both sleeves in, making sure the design on the front of the shirt remains centered and smooth. Finally, fold up the bottom of the shirt and secure with more safety pins.

 

 

3. Make your backing

trim the felt so that it is 1 inch smaller than your pillow on all sides. Remove the backing from one side of the Velcro tape and secure it to the felt, placing it 1/4 inch from each edge. Remove the remaining tape backing and turn up the 1/4-inch runover of felt so it wraps around part of the Velcro.

 

4. Put it together

Flip the felt back over and center it on the back of your pillow, making sure to cover up all the safety pins. Press down on the adhesive Velcro to secure the edges.

 

When the season’s over, remove the Velcro and pins and your tee is as good as new!
