Aya Sumika, who played FBI agent Liz Warner on "Numb3rs," and Trevor John, an illustrator, moved into a just-built, two-bedroom condo in West Hollywood as newlyweds in 2007. "There was nothing interesting about it architecturally," Sumika said of the home. "We wanted a blank canvas. " Her goal was to transform it into a "chic urban space with French touches. " It's home to a pit bull rescue and two cats, and in 2010 the couple purchased Midori Ribbon, the luxury gift wrap firm  Sumika 's mother founded.

CB2, the offspring of Crate & Barrel, opened its first Southern California store Thursday in the Sunset Boulevard space formerly occupied by a Virgin Megastore. "Considering that Los Angeles was the home of Case Study houses and Charles and Ray Eames, we knew we had to come here to be a legitimate modern home furnishings store," said CB2 director Marta-Maria Calle.

Consumers are hoping to cash in on last week's state Supreme Court ruling that it's illegal for retailers to ask customers for their ZIP Codes during credit card transactions, except in limited cases. More than a dozen new lawsuits have been filed against major chains that do business in California, including Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Bed Bath & Beyond Inc., Crate & Barrel and Victoria's Secret. More filings are expected in the coming weeks. The flurry of litigation stems from a decision last week against Williams-Sonoma Inc. in which the state high court ruled unanimously that ZIP Codes were "personal identification information" that merchants can't demand from customers under a California consumer privacy law. That decision sparked lawsuits, mostly in San Francisco and Los Angeles courts, that seek class-action status and compensation for affected shoppers.

It may be the biggest home store you've never heard of, but Urban Home is getting harder not to notice. The company, whose first five stores are in the San Fernando Valley and points north, has opened its sixth location in the 30,000-square-foot Westside Pavilion space at the prime corner of Westwood and Pico boulevards. It's a big expansion for the Oxnard-based company, and yet the West L.A. store is not even the company's largest. That title would go to the 35,000-square-foot Urban Home at the Sherman Oaks Galleria.

My husband went shopping the other day and came home with this find from Crate & Barrel - a trio of soft silicone and nylon measuring cups in papa bear (4 cups/1000 ml), mama bear (2 cups/500 ml) and baby bear (1 cup/200 ml) sizes. They stack neatly inside each other and because the sides aren't rigid, you can squeeze them in slightly, the better to pour. (And also to get out thick or sticky ingredients.) Dishwasher safe, too. 3-piece “Pinch & Pour” measuring cup set available from Crate & Barrel stores and online, $29.95 for the three.

Gift cards accounted for 18% of holiday spending last year, so likely some of us still haven't gotten around to using the prepaid presents. Here's a new way to spend them down: United-Continental airlines allows members of its frequent-flier program to exchange gift cards from major retailers for air miles. The Mileage Plus Gift Card Exchange accepts more than 60 types of gift cards -- Best Buy, Crate & Barrel, JC Penney, Peet's Coffee & Tea and Walmart, among them -- that have at least $25 credit and no expiration date.

Set in and around Berkeley, "Parenthood" unfolds principally in three family residences that vary in architectural style. The first is the house of Zeek and Camille Braverman (Craig T. Nelson and Bonnie Bedelia). "They have lived there 30 years, filled it with heirlooms and haven't redecorated much," set decorator Julieann Getman says. "It's well worn and comfortable. " Despite clutter and "visible scouring pads," Getman says, the Bravermans' woodsy kitchen has an old-fashioned, welcoming feel.
