With five kids under 10, this Brooklyn couple wanted to create an urban version of their own Santa Cruz childhood experience. They combined three apartments, turning a second kitchen into a crafts room and a spare bedroom into a full-size playhouse.
They enlisted the help of the architects at Incorporated to tackle the ten-month renovation. The results speak for themselves!
The two sisters share this park-inspired bedroom, complete with a funky Pirelli rubber floor.
The closet in the girls’ bedroom was converted into a playhouse for the two sisters.
In the boys’ room, a plywood playhouse doubles as bunk beds for the two boys, complete with climbing wall and chalkboard. Two spare bunks were added to accommodate sleepovers.
An indoor tree house fills what was once a spare bedroom. Cole & Son’s Woods Wallpaper adds an outdoorsy feel to the space.
I totally love this blue piano in the living room. The children’s artwork is proudly displayed above it on matching blue shelves.

This is a lighter, zestier version of the traditional crab salad. You can substitute lemon juice and wedges for lime juice and lime wedges.
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cucumber, seeded and thinly sliced
1/3 cup fresh mint, chopped
12 ounces crab meat
4 cups mixed salad greens (mesclun) or romaine lettuce
4 lime wedges
In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, vinegar, sugar, cucumber and mint. Add the crab and toss to coat well.
Divide the lettuce among individual plates. Top with the crab mixture. Spoon any remaining dressing over the crab. Garnish with lime wedges and serve immediately.

In many settings advertisements tend to be ignored or overlooked. When flipping through a magazine you probably skip past the ads unless something really catches your attention. The same thing applies when it comes to driving by billboards, browsing online, or interacting anywhere else where ads appear.
One approach for ad designers to capture the attention and interest of viewers is to use humor. Most of us will stop and pay attention to ads if they grab our attention and make us laugh.
In this post we’ll showcase 30 examples of advertisements that user humor to make an impact on viewers.
