When Andrea Zappone was 12 years old, she decorated her bedroom with antiques. She picked up items at yard sales and adjusted until it matched her vision. But the framed photos of her friends and family didn’t match the aesthetic. She replaced them with pictures in antique frames of long-dead family ancestors.
Zappone laughs at the memory, but says it was just one of many designs she came up with for her childhood room. Now grown, with children of her own, Zappone is hoping to launch an interior design career.
Zappone is the grand prize winner of this year’s Times Union Home Design Contest. Her entries, all drawn from her own home – the master bathroom, kitchen, living room and her daughter’s bedroom – swept all the categories in this year’s contest, as determined by visitors to the Times Union Facebook page.

I have been searching for modern coastal design ideas and describing the overall design plan as Modern Coastal Design, and I’ve had a few email questions about that. So, I thought it might be helpful to talk about the question that pops up most frequently which is: “What is Modern Coastal Design?” as well as show you some coastal decorating ideas for living rooms.

When Quibi launched earlier this week, it did so with several big-swing, big-money shows, including Flipped, an HGTV-infused comedy starring Will Forte, Kaitlin Olson, Arturo Castro, and more. As Jann, the show’s eccentric, self-absorbed protagonist, Forte once again plays the character you want to root for, but also would absolutely hate to be around. He’s not so much an antihero as a complete shithead, but one that still probably doesn’t deserve what he gets in the show—which is kidnapped by drug traffickers and forced to design and renovate their massive, tacky homes. The A.V. Club talked to Forte about his own design aesthetic prior to the Quibi launch, as well as the future of the MacGruber streaming show, and his delightful new puppy.
The A.V. Club: Prior to Flipped, how familiar were you with the home renovation genre?
Simplicity is not the goal. It is the by-product of a good idea and modest expectations.
We seek clarity, order, and trustworthiness in information sources, whether traditional paper documents or web pages. Effective page design can provide this confidence. The spatial organization of graphics and text on the web page can engage users with graphic impact, direct their attention, prioritize the information they see, and make their interactions with your web site more enjoyable and efficient.
Design creates visual logic and seeks an optimal balance between visual sensation and graphic information. Without the visual impact of shape, color, and contrast, pages are graphically uninteresting and will not motivate the viewer. Dense text documents without contrast and visual relief are also hard to read, particularly on low-resolution screens. But without the depth and complexity of text, highly graphic pages risk disappointing the user by offering a poor balance of
