ON THE MARKET FRIDAY, MARCH 12, 2004—7 Shelbi's large windows flood house with light By SCOTT MCALEXANDER Copley News Service It is common in new subdivisions for corner lots to be layed out in a way that requires homes to accommodate a side entrance from another street. The Shelbi (501-31) meets this need. The Shelbi is a compact ranch-style home of 1,152 square feet that includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two-car garage. With its two rooflines, large windows and covered porch, it looks great from the street. Once across the covered porch, the front door opens into the living and dining rooms. Next to the door is a large coat closet. The living and dining rooms have the option of being vaulted, which adds a more spacious feel. The large window in the living room bathes the interior in light. The dining room has slid- ing glass doors opening onto a patio, ideal for barbecues and other outdoor activities. The kitchen is C-shaped and faces the front. It has a window over the double sinks that views the street and all that passes. An eating bar next to the dining room is ideal for fast breakfasts before school or work. Two bedrooms are located on the left side of the Shelbi. Each has a large window and wall closet. A full bathroom for the two bedrooms is across from bedroom 2. It has a tub and a single sink. Down the hall is an overhead attic access door. At the end of the hall is the utility room, which has a door that opens into the garage, ideally located between the master suite and the other two bedrooms. The master suite has one large window, a walk-in closet with a shoe rack and a full bathroom with a tub and single sink. A pocket door separates the walk-in closet from the rest of the suite, while a regular door does the same for the bath- This home design incorporates big windows and vaulted ceilings to make a home that feels spacious and bathed in sunlight. room. The Shelbi would make a great starter home for first- time buyers, or serve empty- nesters admirably.

BOOK REVIEW , Love wallpapers? Yearn for a wallpaper wish-book that would make it totally easy to indulge your affection? Say thanks to top interior designer Chuck Fischer, author of a unique new book in which he's collected the best from one of the best wallpaper manufacturers, F. Schumacher & Co. For more than a century, Schumacher has been dressing the walls of America's homes, both small and as large and important as the White House and the Vanderbilt mansion and the Breakers, in Newport, R.I. Named "Wallcoverings: Applying the Language of Color and Pattern" (Universe Publishers), Fischer's small (6 inches by 9 inches), but heavy, volume divides wallpapers into color groups, following the familiar color wheel. The system makes it easy for the uninitiated to stop fearing and learn to choose wallpaper colors and patterns they'll love living with. The author explains the social history of each color, examines its attributes, and analyzes its effect on you and on your rooms. He also much to my delight - includes a glossary or wallcovering terms and a collection of insightful quotes. My favorite: "Either that wallpaper goes, or I do" - Oscar Wilde's last words before he died in 1900 in a drab hotel room in Paris.
