3 Interior Design Rules Everyone Should Know

February 26, 2015 1:02 pm

Some people embrace the opportunity to show off their personal style in their home, while others might have a little harder time knowing where to start. Either way, there are some basic interior design rules everyone should follow in order to create a space that's both livable and stylish. Here are three interior design rules everyone should know.

1) Avoid one stop shopping.
Even if you love the decor from a certain retailer, avoid buying all of your housewares there. Otherwise, you might end up living in a space that looks pre-packaged and lacks personality.

2) Let there be light.
Invest in a few small lamps of varying strength to set around the room. This opens up and flatters every type of space.

3) Control color.
When decorating, color plays a big role in how a room turns out. Select a dominant color that appears on large items or pieces of fabric, a secondary color for accessories like pillows or fixtures, and an accent color used in small amounts to add an unexpected freshness.

Tri-Tips Take 24 Hours at Wood Ranch at The Grove

February 18, 2015 12:03 pm

The tri tips at Los Angeles's Wood Ranch take an entire day—and night—to prepare.

First, they slow-roast overnight. The following day, chefs grill them over a mesquite wood fire and add the sauce to-order. In fact, chefs prepare every barbecue dish that way, including premium American baby back pork ribs, certified Angus beef prime rib, and fresh chicken. Perhaps that's why this Los Angeles barbecue joint and its 13 sister locations won the Los Angeles Daily News's award for Best BBQ six years in a row.

It could also be the ambience, which reflects the American grub with roomy booths, tons of wood in warm earth tones, and a full bar. In addition to the tri-tips, regulars recommend trying the garlic rolls or mac and cheese. You can cap off your meal with a house-made dessert such as deep dish peach cobbler or warm chocolate cake.
