Modernist architect Irving Gill wasn't known for designing houses with the main rooms on the second floor, but some touches inspired by his work -- such as a creamy white exterior, the use of natural light and heavily framed windows -- make this custom home stand out on Little Balboa Island. It's a hybrid of old and new -- a bit Craftsman, contemporary and Mission-style in appearance. "Some people call it Southwestern contemporary while others label it California modern, but it's neither of those," says Glen Gellatly, who designed the house nearly a decade ago when he was with Bissell Architects.

For us L.A. old-timers, there's something odd about the first days of summer this year. The air is clear. Unnaturally clear. One day this week, standing in front of my home in Mount Washington just north of downtown, I could actually see the faint outline of Catalina Island 52 miles away. But soon, very soon, Catalina will disappear. So will Mt. Baldy. Even the nearby San Gabriels will be lost to me in that notorious khaki-colored haze that descends upon our city in July and August.

The grandfather clock in the vestibule of the Douglass Family Mortuary in Lynwood is silent. The key misplaced, the mainspring unwound, its hands lie motionless at 6:38. Martha Castañeda has long stopped listening for it. In the company of the dead, she is happy to lose track of time just as she has this Saturday morning standing beside Juan Antonio Reyes Villatoro, who lies in the ivory crepe of his silver-finished casket. She studies his face, the pursed lips and the trimmed goatee.

When Samad Firdosy bought the two-bedroom, one-bath home in La Crescenta in 2005, it was a fairly conventional single-story ranch house - with one difference. The house was nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and bordered in back by a 6-acre watershed owned by the Los Angeles County Flood Control District. But it failed to take advantage of its rustic landscape and mountain views. Firdosy says he purchased the house intending to add more space but just couldn't visualize how. So the Jet Propulsion Lab materials engineer called a friend - Ali Jeevanjee of LOC Architects in downtown L.A. - to design an addition for him. Jeevanjee had grown up with him and done a renovation for Firdosy's parents.

When Candice Cain and John Lee went to remodel the kitchen in their 1916 Echo Park house, they knew that bigger would not necessarily be better. They didn't need the space doubled or a massive island added. They just needed their galley kitchen to function better as a galley kitchen. Despite a bank of windows, the space felt cramped, dark and gloomy, with vinyl flooring, pine cabinets and fake wood paneling on the walls. Some cabinets had been recycled from the living room of the couple's Craftsman home.

PARIS -- Is the City of Light about to hit the dimmer switch? Some of the French capital's most celebrated attractions, including the luxury stores of the Champs-Elysées, could be thrown into darkness under a government proposal to pull the plug on illumination at night. Delphine Batho, France's minister for energy and environment, is drawing up regulations to force shops, offices and public buildings across France to switch off their lights  between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m.  The new rules, to be outlined "in the next few weeks," are aimed at saving energy and money as well as showing "sobriety" at a time of economic crisis, Batho told reporters.
