It is the essential winter conversation, and one that will dominate the next few months: How much snow did you get? There is a reliable way to answer that question: a device called a snow gauge. Gardener's Supply Co. offers a snow gauge that looks more like a lawn sculpture than a measuring device, but its stylish copper numerals are large, readable and measure up to 2 feet of snow. (The Vermont-based company also markets a 4-foot snow gauge, but we won't go there.) The numerals over time will acquire the classic greenish patina of aging copper.

Forno, a great-looking new restaurant and wine bar located across the street from the Hippodrome Theatre , opened as quietly as it could in late February just as the blockbuster musical "The Book of Mormon" pulled into town. Emina Dukic, who co-owns Forno with her husband, Bryan Noto, has said she wants Forno to be not only an amenity for the theater crowd but for residents of an emerging west-side neighborhood in and around the sprawling campus of the University of Maryland.

I am a 29-year-old lawyer working in New York City. I recently joined a health club and started working out every day in hope of finding "Ms. Right."While I have no problem dressing for the corporate world, I'm at a loss when it comes to dressing for the gym. I am uncomfortable in tight clothing and think baggy T-shirts and shorts are sloppy. What can I wear that is modern, stylish and comfortable?A warm-up suit in a light fabric. Look for a jacket and pants with clean lines and a slim silhouette.

The sacred triumvirate of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven accounts for a crucial portion of what we call classical music, so there are plenty of reasons to program works by all three men on the same evening. There is also a risk of taking such material for granted, coasting on the familiarity of the structures and logical harmonic language. No worries about that, though, in the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's serving of the three composers this week, since Nicholas McGegan is on the podium.

Maybe you've heard about the roughly 47,000 seats at the soon-to-be downtown ballpark. They are touted as being roomy, stylish and backside-friendly, whatever your shape.Now comes unusual news: They also may be backward.At least one decorative part.The seat parts in question are about 4,000 custom-designed end standards that will be displayed on aisles at the new ballpark. Each features a century-old Orioles logo -- a mustachioed batsman flanked by a pair of ornate capital letter "B's" -- used long ago on the team's letterhead.

One of the great myths of movie romance is this business about The Look. I know it's a myth because it's never happened to me, and it's never happened to anybody I know, and if it happened to some of my buddies, believe me, not only would they tell, they wouldn't shut up about it!The Look, in its purest form, goes like this: At some dreary function, He sees Her. Then, feeling the presence of His eyes, She looks up and She sees Him. The room falls away, the clock stops, the sky clears, the birds chirp, the hearts melt.

The musical enticements of Leo Delibes' Lakme were reconfirmed Wednesday night as the Baltimore Opera Company continued its season-opening production. The scenery looked just as lackluster, the stage direction just as uninspired, but some vocal sparks onstage offered considerable compensation. Youngouk Shin revealed admirable sensitivity in the title role, both in her singing and in her characterization. She made a valiant effort to give Lakme genuine depth; this was no super-cliched bit of exotica.

Remember the scene in Alfred HitchcockM-Fs North by Northwest where Cary Grant is being chased through a cornfield by a killer crop duster? The clip from the 1959 classic is memorable for many reasons, but thereM-Fs one detail that particularly stands out: In that cornfield, while being sprayed by pesticides, Grant M-y the poster boy for old-school style M-y is wearing the perfect tailored suit. You remember it. Slate gray. Two buttons. A crisp white shirt. French cuffs! Ahh, for the 1950s, when a man was impeccably dressed, even while rolling around in the dust.

Once, Bonnie Bradley scoffed at older friends who "needed those little glasses for reading." When they'd gather at a restaurant "and didn't have their glasses [to read the menu], I thought that was hilarious," she says. Then, as she crept into her 40s, "I noticed that I was holding things further and further away" to see them, says Bradley, a nursing student who lives in Parkville. "By 44, I had to say `uncle' and had to get my little pair of magnifiers," she says. Now, friends laugh at her, says Bradley, who just turned 46. "I had it coming.

The year is not even a week old, and there's a contender for highlight of the 2014 music season in Baltimore. OK, maybe that's too premature and silly a statement. But if, like me, you feel there are few things more perfectly fashioned than a waltz by Johann Strauss and few things more satisfying than a stylish performance of same, then you'll find this weekend's Strauss-filled program by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's a very satisfying experience. Thanks to the popularity of the Vienna Philharmonic's globally broadcast New Year's Day Concert, lots of orchestras have tried cashing in on the idea of packaging music of the Waltz King and his peers at this time of year.

Though happily settled with her family in their Edgewater house, when Jennifer Bieberich gazed across the yard, she knew something was missing. "It was just calling for a barn," she says. The couple, including her husband Karl Bieberich, are no farmers, but that empty corner of their property is now home to a 1,050-square-foot "carriage house" barn constructed by Yankee Barn Homes, a New Hampshire-based company that designs and builds timber-frame homes around the country. The structure looks like a red barn from the outside; inside, it includes a utility space on the first floor and a great room on the second floor.

Shelissa Kearney is a woman of many trades. In addition to being a savvy businesswoman, writer and former model, the Howard County native is mother to a 2-year-old. The founder of Shelissa Organics, a line of natural lip balms, and author of “Naturally Naked” has launched her own line of baby gear called Shelly Belly Baby. Frustrated by diaper bags that looked too dowdy or that lacked utility, Kearney was inspired to put her background in fashion to use in creating tote bags that would appeal to the modern stylish mom. “I found that on most bags, the pockets were either too little or in the wrong places,” Kearney says.

The recent feature article regarding nurseries ("Making rooms for baby," March 10) provides nice design advice, but it fails to provide safe advice for a sleeping newborn. Many of the photographs in the article highlight unsafe cribs. In the Baltimore metropolitan area alone in 2011, 18 infants died suddenly and unexpectedly in unsafe sleep positions. These typically healthy, happy newborns were placed to sleep on their stomachs, in adult beds, or in cribs full of unnecessary bumpers, blankets and animals.

Netflix today released a stylish trailer for "House of Cards," the Baltimore-made political thriller starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. The opening suggests that screenwriter Beau Willimon has successfully re-imagined the tricky form of address featured in the BBC original with the lead character talking directly to the audience at key moments. Spacey nails the technique and it seems perfectly apt for American politics in this trailer. Check it out. I love the answer given when one character asks what will happen if he doesn't play ball: "Then we'll cleave you from the herd and watch you die in the wilderness.

Filling the shoes of the former Brass Elephant, which closed in August 2009, is like slipping into an $800 pair of Christian Louboutins. Located in the heart of Mount Vernon, the building is so elegant and beautiful that it immediately demands to be taken seriously. Unfortunately for Museum, the new restaurant and lounge that held its grand opening in June, that type of scrutiny did not exactly help its case on a recent Friday night. It's a shame because the night was filled with dancing to a solid DJ. But there was no mistaking the red flags.

When Jodi and Clark Lare were renovating and enlarging their Stevenson home, Jodi made a request: "I always dreamed of having my own dressing room." She got it - a 15-by-17-foot cream-hued room with a shoe wall and broad cabinets where her sister and friends can sit and assess an outfit she tries on by the angled dressing-room-style mirrors, where good light shows the true colors of the hanging clothing, where the accessories organization is efficiently built into drawers and where conveniences are hidden.

In a season when the weather can turn from brisk to blizzard, the choice of outerwear can be problematic. The practical answer is a shawl that can be tossed over a jacket or suit and then folded and stashed away. Women on the move have discovered the stylish potential in a swath of luxurious, unstructured fabric that wears comfortably and travels well.It can be a long stole, a poncho or a blanket-sized square doubled up in a triangle to wrap around the shoulders. A finish of deep fringe is a flippant stylish bonus, so learn to toss it lightly.

It's been a busy couple of weeks for Winston Blick and Cristin Dadant. During May, the couple oversaw the opening of the Green Onion food market on Harford Road and Clementine at the Creative Alliance , an Eastern Avenue outpost of their popular Hamilton comfort food spot. On top of the openings, Blick and Dadant's catering business is booming, and the original Clementine continues to serve a steady stream of diners. They've got a lot going on. But if our experience at Clementine at the Creative Alliance is any indication, Blick, Dadant and company are handling things with aplomb.

Standing in the driveway of Arleen Dvorine's Lutherville property, it is clear she has successfully realized her dream of converting an old carriage house into an office and home. The 240-year-old, one-story structure served as the stable for the long-ago gentleman farmer and owner of White Manor, a mansion still standing and still occupied further down the winding road. A gently sloping roof flows into the exterior's cedar shake siding. Multi-paned windows — colonial in style and with cream trim — are symmetrically placed on either side of a portico, also in a cream color.
