Late July is the height of vacation season, but instead of a week at the beach or a trip to Europe this year, many Americans are still opting for the staycation or choosing to visit friends or relatives for a long weekend. Whether you find yourself bunking at your sister's place in San Francisco or are in the position of hosting out-of-town guests yourself, one thing is for sure: You'll soon understand the importance of a well-appointed guest room. An uncomfortable guest room sets the stage for a memorable visit — for all the wrong reasons.

Table tips Use rentals. Unless you love your table legs or your rug, rent a floor-length tablecloth – and perhaps seat cushions, too, Anne Berman says. Repurpose items. Sascha Wolhandler lets oversized napkins stand in as runners. They give the table a feeling of luxury, she says, although she picked them up at a hotel sale for $1 each. Sparkle and shine. Use plenty of glasses, says Wolhandler, because they sparkle so beautifully in candlelight.

Gail Houston, a physician's assistant at Franklin Square Hospital Center, comes by her sense of style quite naturally. Her parents were also sharp dressers and they passed their sartorial sense to 10 daughters and one son. "It's part of the family tradition," she says. Houston, 36, remembers her father working two jobs in St. Louis, Mo., to keep food on the table and his family in nice clothes. Houston remembers rarely donning a hand-me-down.Describe your style.Conservative but cool.For example?

The Capri pants were kicky, kiwi and scattered with bright pink Gerbera daisies. They flared ever so slightly at the hem, rode low on the waist and screamed fun and summer. Best of all they were just her size: 9 months. No that's not a typo. They now make Capri pants for infants. Baby clothes have grown up and gotten fashionable. In addition to pastel pinks, blues and yellows, infants and toddlers now can sport such strong colors as bright green and orange. They can wear fabrics like linen and suede.

Slowly, ever so slowly, hotels are recognizing that travelers who suffer from severe asthma and allergies triggered by dust mites, mold, smoke, pollen, chemicals and animal dander might like to stay in hypoallergenic rooms -- for a price. With as many as one in four travelers coughing, sneezing and wheezing their way through the day, or night, the thought crossed a few minds to develop hotel rooms that are free of all the nasty stuff that causes guests to feel as if their airways are clogging.

WASHINGTON -- After fighting to keep them secret for more than three decades, the CIA released hundreds of documents yesterday that catalog some of the most egregious intelligence abuses of the Cold War, including assassination plots against foreign leaders and illegal efforts to spy on Americans. The records are part of a trove of jealously guarded documents long known within the agency as "the family jewels." Assembled in the early 1970s as part of an internal probe of potentially embarrassing or illegal activities, the records were subsequently turned over to Congress, prompting multiple investigations and sweeping intelligence reforms.

When Edward Windsor married Wallis Warfield Simpson in 1936, a monogram of three gracefully interlocking WWWs was created for her, and because Edward was once the king of England and a man of great power, the royal monogram adorned her linens, towels, stationery, handbags and many other items. Monograms have always suggested that their owner is a person of taste and influence, and they have appeared on sheets, towels and linen napkins for centuries. But recently, monograms have begun to pop up in other spheres of the home, adding their note of customized luxury.

You might wonder whether Baltimore really needs one more Irish pub, and you would be right to wonder. Their number is probably eclipsed only by the number of steakhouses that have appeared in the last few years. I date the area's high profile Irish pub explosion from the success of An Poitin Stil in Timonium, which opened in 1999. The new Tir Na Nog, located where the second floor of Planet Hollywood used to be, manages to differentiate itself from the rest of the pack by, well, not being terribly Irish.

On the runways of Milan and New York, menswear designers showed ankle- baring pants, pink jackets and streamlined suits with sheen. But which of these and other trendy looks will actually make it into area stores this spring?Fashion coordinators and local menswear store owners say the interest in high style and European fashion is here, but the clothes have to be functional and comfortable as well. In other words, we'll be seeing more flat-fronted pants (although pleats still rule) but "clam diggers" probably won't be big in Baltimore.

Golden anniversary gardening bookIt's not a sexy book, with lots of gorgeous photographs, but it may be the most useful gardening book you buy this year.Fifty years ago Wilbur Youngman, a garden reporter, created the booklet that eventually became "The Washington Star Garden Book." He continued it for the next 40 years, even after the Star newspaper stopped publishing. These days the book has a new author, Deborah Fialka, and is being read by a third generation of area gardeners. Its value lies in its specific information about what works best in this climate and this soil.
