Every news outlet you can think of has had something to say about Ray Rice. Plus one you might not think of. Cosmopolitan. On its website, the magazine famous for its naughty bedroom advice published a sad and searing commentary by author Roxane Gay on Janay Rice and domestic abuse. The appalling number of battered spouses - one in four women and one in seven men - has not moved the needle on this issue, she said, and she didn't think a video record of it would, either. Not exactly what you'd expect to hear from Cosmo.

When homes are first being furnished, it's usually the bedroom that receives top priority, at least as far as furniture is concerned. Typically, a bed and some basic storage pieces will be among the initial items purchased for a new home, but just as typically, the bedroom will then be overlooked as attention turns to other spaces.Eventually, the realization dawns that the lighting is no good for reading in bed. Those posters from half-forgotten museum shows also begin to look a little silly.

Baltimore police charged the roommate of a man who was beaten and set on fire in connection with the grisly murder earlier this week. Police and firefighters found the body of Nathaniel Quarterman, 54, on fire in an alley behind the 4200 block of Shamrock Ave. around 2 a.m. Friday morning. A trail of blood led from Quarterman's body to underneath a balcony on one of the homes in the block. It was not clear if Quarterman jumped or was thrown from the balcony, but police later found blood on the balcony and inside Quarterman's bedroom.

Certain bedrooms are best described as home hideaways places where one can take a mini vacation from workaday worries and other vexations. At a certain point, the word "bedroom" seems too weak to describe these rooms. "Boudoir" is a more correct term for these sleeping spaces that are also opulent, playful retreats, where the imagination conjures romance and it becomes real.Interior designer Greg Le Vanis successfully created such an atmosphere when he transformed two rooms in an older home into one bedroom suite.

Q: The ceiling in our second-floor bedroom is nearly 13 feet high. It's the attic, and the rafters have been left bare. We love the open feeling, but in a bedroom, that may be too open. Is there any way to bring the space down to size so things feel cozier?A: Intimacy is especially important in bedrooms and baths, both the most personal and private rooms in our lives. Here, we often have opposing needs: for lots of living space . . . for a feeling of coziness and safety.You can have your human scale and spaciousness, too, as you see in the lofty bedroom in the photo we show here.

Q: I'm looking for a new headboard for my average-size bedroom, which has traditional mahogany furniture, a dark wood floor and off-white walls. Can you suggest an interesting design, not necessarily in wood, that would help make the room look a bit larger and more sophisticated?A: Let me encourage you not to add more wood to a setting that already has quite enough. As an alternative, you might also try creating a headboard out of fabric. The photo depicts just that sort of solution.This treatment may look rather elaborate, but it's really quite simple and not as heavy as an actual canopy.

Q: My bedroom is furnished with a combination of painted and natural fruitwood pieces, all of them in Louis XVI styling. Since the off-white painted furniture can't be refinished, would it make sense to paint all the pieces the same color? Also, can you suggest a treatment for the walls and floor other than the celadon green paint and carpet that currently covers them?A: A lot depends on the size of your room and which of the pieces are now painted. I'll assume that the bedroom is of average size, and that it contains a queen-size bed in natural fruitwood finish.

Jennifer Etheridge has more than a city view from her 12th-floor condo at 414 Water St. She is in the heart of downtown Baltimore's business district - any more of a cosmopolitan feel would have her perched on top of City Hall, whose dome she sees from her bedroom window. "This place also overlooks the Hustler Club, which is a great conversation starter," she said jokingly. Among the many perks of living in the 31-story building - including round-the-clock front desk service, a fitness center, outdoor pool, business center and multipurpose room - is that she can walk to M&T Bank each morning, where she works as a treasury management consultant.

How can I add some flair without interfering with the room's conservative styling?A: The photo shows some bedroom furniture which I assume is similar to your own. Much can be done to liven up the look of such a setting, keeping in mind that furniture is only one component in the total design of a room.

In 1992, Marisa Tomei was the surprise winner of a best supporting actress Oscar for the comedy My Cousin Vinny, beating out respected British actresses Joan Plowright, Judy Davis, Vanessa Redgrave and Miranda Richardson. In some ways, she's been paying for that win ever since. Maybe her performance in In the Bedroom, as the woman whose love of a much younger man unwittingly leads to tragedy, will finally pay that debt in full. Almost from the day she won her Oscar, the Hollywood rumor mill couldn't simply acknowledge that Tomei had given an assured, terrifically funny performance as the gum-chewing, wisecracking girlfriend of neophyte lawyer Joe Pesci.

"Have I ever got a house for you!" The call came a few months ago from Matt Knoepfle, co-owner with his brother, Mike Knoepfle, of the construction company Building Character LLC. That remark is always an invitation to be amazed at a challenging project that has come to fruition. The brothers are in the business of buying up Baltimore's old and crumbling properties (often in the most sought-after downtown neighborhoods) and adaptively reusing them. This particular property, the subject of Matt Knoepfle's call, was the conversion of a late 19th-century carriage repair shop in Federal Hill into a single-family home on two levels, with over 3,000 square feet of living space.
