Q: While traveling around Europe, I saw bathrooms that didn't look at all like the standard American variety, all white, sleek and sterile. Now I'm about to remodel my own home, and I would like to create a combined bathroom and dressing area. Can you help me plan a setting that's relaxed and inviting, perhaps in an English or country style?A: The room shown in the photo would seem to meet your specifications. While it's certainly functional, the design is quite inviting as well, due to its charm and non-aggressive approach.

In the year before he walked out of a dressing room at a Columbia Mall skate shop and proceeded to shoot two store clerks to death before taking his own life, Darion Marcus Aguilar had methodically researched the 1999 Columbine High School shootings and collected hundreds of violent video images on his computer. He also scoured the Internet for articles about mental illness and told his doctor he was hearing voices in his head. But family and friends told police they detected nothing amiss.

Darion Marcus Aguilar had no connections to his victims and modeled his attack on the Mall in Columbia after the Columbine High School shooting, Howard County police revealed Wednesday. Police said Aguilar, 19, even waited until 11:14 a.m. on Jan. 25 to launch his attack -- the same time the two Columbine students opened fire in 1999. Howard County Police Chief William J. McMahon said Aguilar acted alone during the attack and planning. Aguilar, of College Park, killed Zumiez employees Brianna Benlolo, 21, and Tyler Johnson, 25, before killing himself.

I want to convert a seldom-used guest room into a dressing room. The space has a window and two doors, one of which leads to the bath and the other to our bedroom. Can you give me some pointers on planning the conversion so that the dressing room will be both efficient and attractive?The first step involves a lot of counting and measuring. You'll have to tally up the number of shoes, suits, dresses and so on that are to be stored in the converted space. Then you should calculate the size of those parts of the room that are to be used purely for storage, while keeping in mind the need for ample circulation space.

Linda Parsons hadn't been in the new Filene's Basement in Towson five minutes before she scooped up four designer purses - Nine West and Ellen Tracey, if you must know - in this season's bright colors and at less than half the normal prices. The 51-year-old retired state government worker has shopped "the Basement" for 25 years, ever since the days when she had to wear a bathing suit to try on clothes at the flagship Boston store, which was famously devoid of dressing rooms. "Once you start coming you can't stop," she said.

I just tried on a gazillion swimsuits without leaving my home or removing a stitch of clothing. There were no fluorescent lights, no tattletale three-way mirrors and no snide saleswomen saying, "You are going to try on that?" It's every woman's clothing dream and it's available courtesy of the Internet. Now, there's finally a really good reason for owning a computer. Virtual dressing rooms are just beginning to make their way onto the Web. With them, you can try on clothes on a virtual body that looks like yours.

In addition to being known for a variety of architectural designs, many of the homes in Baltimore's Guilford neighborhood are often referred to by the names of their former residents of note. Within the space of a few acres, the community includes the Milton Eisenhower house, the Turnbull House and the "Natty Boh" place. Five years ago, Bari and Thomas Fore purchased the Ogden Nash home, a three-story, stone and slate English country-style home sitting on an acre of land, for $1.2 million.

I watched Ray Lewis play his last game in Baltimore ("Ray's day," Jan. 7). He never started out as a great man, but he is finishing as one. So somewhere along the way he changed, chose a different destiny, decided on a different life. He was always a master of his trade and now is a master of his beliefs. So it was with a tear in my eye that that I watched him dance his way out of the tunnel, and it was with one on my cheek and my heart in my mouth that I watched him disappear into the dressing room.

Over the weekend at the Washington Capitals' practice facility in Arlington, Va., Jason Chimera sprayed water around the dressing room after his group won a scrimmage in a shootout. It was all in jest, as though the players had won the Stanley Cup, but it's the kind of thing that teammates have come to expect from the jovial veteran, who is on pace for a career-best season. Through the first third of the 2011-12 campaign, Chimera is tied for the team lead in goals (11), second in plus-minus rating (plus-9)

M arin Alsop's interior designer traveled to her parents' Upstate New York house recently to select some family antiques for her new home, a condo in a historic Mount Vernon building that's brimming with 19th-century charm. The ground-breaking maestra with the ultra-hip BSO dressing room isn't going traditional on us, is she? "We're not putting in clawfoot chairs and that kind of stuff," Steve Appel of Nouveau Contemporary Goods assured me. "We're doing very modern pieces." The pieces raided from Alsop's antiques-dealer father's collection - an 18th-century tricycle, a 20th-century Victrola, for example - will be accent pieces meant to play off the home's architectural features.

I rarely go shopping with my husband, primarily because of the genetic differences in our shopping styles. My method: Browse, try on, ask the woman in the dressing room next to me what she thinks of what I'm trying on, find stuff I didn't come for and head to the register with several items. His method: Enter store, look for specific item, if not immediately apparent, leave. Don't go back for several months, if possible. There are only two stores where anything close to a browse has occurred in his case: The Home Depot and Costco.

At J. Roaman, a home furnishings store in East Hampton, N.Y., a painted white iron bed wears a giant charm bracelet over its left head post. The bracelet isn't there because the bed wants for visual interest; it's already enveloped in a brightly colored quilt by Lisa Corti, a Milanese designer, and topped with four pillows, five throw pillows and a bolster. The reason for the jewelry, according to Judi Roaman, a former fashion retailer who opened the store in May, is that furniture, like any carefully curated outfit, should express its owner's personality.

At first, there is calm. Behind the scenes at this month's Fashion Week in New York, as designers, models, hairstylists, makeup artists, dressers, publicists and untold others prepare for a runway show, nerves are steady, tasks are methodically performed. The hum of an army of blow dryers provides soothing white noise. And then ... "Forty-five minutes of absolute, intense, unrelenting chaos," says Martha Peabody Walker, a dresser with the Stephanie J dressing crew -- which assists models into each of their two-to-five carefully-thought-out looks.
