A few days before I left for Las Vegas to attend the Photoshop World Conference, I received a fall issue of Atomic Ranch.

The house has three bedrooms, 1 & ½ baths, and a single-car carport. It also has an add-on in the back – yes, an add-on! I know it’s probably […]
I always include as many as museums possible in my itinerary when I travel. Museum of Arts and Design in New York was one of the few I didn’t have time to visit when I visited New York City a few years back. When I heard about the “Crafting Modernism: Midcentury American Art and Design” […]

Growing up, I dreamt of building my own house in the country and living like a hermit. I would have a garden and a lot of pet animals. As I got older, I realized that dream was, well… just a dream. When I heard about “Handmade Houses: A Century of Earth-Friendly Home Design,” I thought […]
At the last part of acknowledgement of newly published “Atomic Ranch: Midcentury Interiors” book, the author says “For those ardent Ranchers who’ve been eagerly anticipating this volume, hope it’s all that you expected and more.” I am one of those “ardent Ranchers” and this book is beyond my expectation and much more!
