ASK WENDY Camellia bushes best planted in mid fall I plant a camellia bush Q:Can now? I was given a beautiful

red camellia for the holidays, and I was wondering if it is safe to plant it during the winter or should I wait until spring? Mid fall would have been the best time to get your new camellia in the ground. The second best time is the early spring. For now, you can enjoy the flowers of the camellia while it is in the pot. When you are ready to plant, pick a partially shaded spot to site the bush. Loosen the soil around the planting spot to make it easier for the new roots to become established. Water the new planted shrub every other day for the first two month, taking care to keep the soil moist. A healthy 3-inch layer of mulch just outside the root ball will help to keep the plant growing strong. Fertilize regularly with a slow-release nitrogen fertilizer to ensure healthy leaves and abundant blooms. For more information about growing camellias, visit the Gainesville

MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE

Cynthia and Jon’s 1970s-era kitchen needed a major renovation. Once the walls were knocked down, new cabinetry, full-size appliances and lots of seating made the couple’s new kitchen both functional and ready for entertaining.

Renovating room is all in the details New kitchen is functional but set to entertain McClatchy-Tribune

ynthia and Jon live in a 1970sera home that has been undergoing endless renovation. They’ve just about had it with home improvements, so we agreed to tackle one of the biggest projects on their list: the kitchen. It’s not surprising that Cynthia was longing for a stylish and modern new kitchen. She knows it’s the heart of the home, but this massive space hadn’t been touched in 40 years. Walking in was like stepping into a time machine and jetting straight back to 1972! With its choppy layout, outdated finishes and small appliances, this kitchen just didn’t cut it. Cynthia envisioned a beautiful, modern space where she and Jon could come

C

together with their two kids, friends and other family members — in other words, a kitchen that would be not only functional, but also this home’s entertainment central. To add to the scope of this challenging project, we also had to relocate the laundry room, which was just off the kitchen. It was going downstairs, and in its place I planned to add a home office space. At the last minute, Cynthia also asked us to design a mud room — somewhere to store hats, coats and bags after people come in the back door from the garage. Luckily, this was a cavernous space that had endless potential. With a fantastic view of the pool and backyard courtyard, we just had to bring the inside up to par with the outside. There was only one way to get this job done: Bring down the walls to open up the space and do a complete gut, right down to the studs.

CANDICE OLSON

Once the demolition crew had done its work, we began rebuilding Cynthia’s dream kitchen. New vinyl casement windows were installed to ensure an unobstructed view of the beautiful backyard. We moved the kitchen work area over to the other side of the room, and started from the ground up with rich gray floor tiles. One of Cynthia’s complaints had been the small appliances, so we made sure to choose only full-size, luxury appliances: a stainless-steel gas stove, a two-door fridge concealed by cabinetry doors, a microwave cleverly hidden in a drawer, and a big stainlesssteel undermount sink in the island. This is an elegant kitchen with surprising little touches of bling everywhere you look. The backsplash incorporates reflective hand-cut glass, and stainless steel and chrome accents shine brightly. The pendant fixture over the reclaimed wooden table catches and reflects the light, complementing the chrome table base, as well as white leather and chrome

I am not sure what specific items are in this group. But it is from the original Pan Am World Airways, and the flight where the items came from was from the later 1950s, possibly early 1960s. Again, I do not know if it was from one of the actual “Clippers,” or just a regular flight. My sense is that the items are things like napkins, playing cards, possibly silverware, glassware or plates, etc. Maybe a blanket with the Pan Am logo, etc. With so many of the “legacy” carriers now out of business or merged with other carriers, I thought there may be some interest in items from one of the early carriers. So, do you have any suggestions on where one might go to find out if these items from an early Pan Am flight might be worth

anything?

Perhaps some are aware of Shake-A-Leg Miami, www.shakealegmiami. org, I had not heard of it before, but it certainly seems like a great community effort. Airline memorabilia is a category of collector interest. We may even have readers who were involved with Pan Am during the Golden Age of commercial airline flight. In order to help further, I need a few group photographs of the Pan Am airline items.

tree that has soft needles. The trees have a moderate growth rate and will reach 40 to 50 feet tall in about 15 to 20 years. The green needle-like leaves turn a coppery-brown before falling in December. They always put on a good color change for the late fall. Knees are usually associated with bald cypress, but only when they grow in wetland conditions. If you plant your new cypress tree by a lake, pond or creek, knees will likely form. But if you plant the tree in a dry, upland site, the knees will not appear. According to research

done at the University of Florida, cypress can be used as street trees in dry areas because they will not push up sidewalks or raise curbs. You will find the cypress tree to be a low maintenance and strong tree to have in your landscape. It is a great choice for a Florida-friendly yard.

In addition to the island seating, a custom L-shaped banquette placed under the windows is upholstered in a rich, durable, soft blue fabric, with a tufted back and luxurious throw pillows. Over the island, we hung three retrofitted light fixtures that were rescued from the old kitchen. A custom upgrade gave these pendants a whole new lease on life, and their soft light shines down on the island’s quartz countertop.

Over where the laundry room used to be, a home office workspace is the perfect place for Cynthia to do the household accounting, or for their young daughter to do her homework on the computer, under her mom’s watchful eye. Just inside the garage door entry, we conquered the clutter by installing new cabinets, drawers, hooks and shelving for coats, hats and bags. Everything has a place now, and this neat and

tidy space flows seamlessly into the kitchen. With plenty of new cabinetry, full-size appliances and lots of seating, Cynthia and Jon’s new kitchen is both functional and ready for entertaining. It’s certainly true that home life revolves around the kitchen. Now, the heart of this home provides the ultimate in style while delivering all the necessary bells and whistles to get the job done.

Add a punch of plaid to warm up your winter decor McClatchy-Tribune

’m mad about plaid. This timeless but trendy pattern plays a big role in my home decor every winter because it’s warm and welcoming and creatively classic without being stogy and stuffy, a perfect part of a winter day, like a hot cup of tea, a warm fire and a dog at your feet. I poured on the plaid when I decorated my home for the holidays this year. But when I box up my holiday decor next week, the plaid will stay in place, an essential part of the wintery mix, until I decorate for spring. Want to add a punch of plaid to your winter scape? Here are 10 perfect spots: 1. ACCENT CHAIRS: My friends Beth and Mike built their country MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE manor home on grand scale, To cozy up this lofty living room we turned to plaid.

MARY CAROL GARRITY

Have a bench in your kitchen nook or dining room? In your entry? At the foot of your bed? Have a simple cushion made to fit it, and cover it in plaid. 7. OUTDOOR FURNITURE: When it was time to redo my tired outdoor cushions this summer, I picked a vivid blue fabric and edged it in citron. I gave this summery, splashy combo a winter makeover by adding plaid pillows. The bright colors in the pattern tie in the electric blue, but still feel warm and cozy. 8. THROW BLANKETS: Since my old house is drafty, I keep throw blankets in every room so I stay snug as I drink my morning coffee. Even if my house was warmer, I’d still want to add throw blankets because they look so amazing over the back or arm of a chair. This brilliant blanket pops against the leather chair in my study. I also keep a throw blanket on my outdoor furnishings to wrap up in on days when it’s nice enough to sit outside. 9. BEDDING: One of the best ways to warm up your bedding ensemble for winter is to work in some plaid pillows or duvet. Bedding can be expensive, so you want to pick pieces that will stand the test of time. Nothing does so better than classic plaids. 10. ACCENTS: Fabric isn’t the only way to add plaid to your decor. Anne wrapped the books in her study in a gorgeous plaid paper and used them as an intriguing design feature in her bookcase displays. We have featured this fun trick for several years at Nell Hill’s, and everyone loves it. The paper adds texture and color to the tableaux. And if you get tired of the look, just unwrap.

Homes should have radon inspection McClatchy-Tribune

he New Year is just around the corner and January has been designated “National Radon Action Month” by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The purpose is to encourage Americans to either selftest their homes or have a licensed radon inspector perform the test for you. Despite numerous stories in major newspapers and on national television, many homeowners are unaware of the dangers of this invisible, odorless gas inside their homes or apartments. Radon gas is produced by the decay of uranium in the soils. The radon enters the structure through cracks or gaps in the foundation. According to the EPA, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers, resulting in more than 20,000 cancer deaths each year (www.epa.gov/ radon/healthrisks.html). To put this into perspective, more deaths are linked to radon each year than to car crashes, falls in the home, drowning or home fires. Because radon occurs naturally in nature, it is all around us all of the time. The normal outside levels of radon are 0.4 picocuries per liter of air represented as PCI/L

Celebrity hair stylist Sally Hershberger has sold her house in Beverly Hills, Calif., for $6,751,500. features its original block walls, terrazzo floors, a media room, an office, three Hershberger bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms. There are fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom. Hershberger created actress Meg Ryan’s shag haircut, dubbed the “Sally shag,” and has a line of hair care products. Actress Jane Fonda and

fashion designer Vera Wang are among her celebrity clients. Hershberger’s television appearances include the series “America’s Next Top Model” and “Shear Genius.” She bought the home in 2004 for $2.4 million, public records show, and had been leasing it out between attempts to sell the property in 2007 and 2010.

Radon test kits are available online for less than $20. You also can contact your county health department for information on free test kits that may be available in your state.

To put this into perspective, more deaths are linked to radon each year than to car crashes, falls in the home, drowning or home fires. (www.epa.gov/radon/ aboutus.html), but there are no known safe levels of radon. The only way to detect radon in your home is with an approved passive test kit or a professional active testing monitor. Test kits are available online for less than $20. You also can contact your county health department for information on free test kits that may be available in your state. Once the home has been tested, you will receive a report on the levels of radon in the home. A reading of 3.9 PCI/l or less is considered acceptable. Levels at 4.0 PCI/L or

greater should either be retested or mitigated by a licensed radon mitigation contractor. If mitigation is necessary, a venting system is installed below the foundation which then extends to the exterior of the home, usually above the roof line, to pull the radon from the soils and dispense the gases safely to the outside environment. Radon levels can vary depending on the weather conditions such as high winds, rain and snow pack. If you first receive a high reading, test again under different weather conditions.
