Q: I am writing to let you know of something that I consider to be a deceptive listing on Airbnb. This was my first time using Airbnb. Several of my friends had recommended it, so I decided to give it a try when I was looking for an apartment to rent in Paris. I found a listing for a three-room apartment in the 16th Arrondissement. It looked very nice. It had the type of coffeemaker I like, and what looked like a comfortable bedroom, an updated bathroom and a lovely view. It also had a small balcony with a table and two chairs. When I finally saw the apartment after meeting the host in a nearby cafe, I was appalled by the condition of the place. Yes, in the website photos it looks a little cluttered with some interesting travel items. Not too bad — gives the place some character. What I did not expect was that almost everything was covered with dirt and dust. The blinds were shabby. they were crooked and nonfunctioning. The dining room, which looked so inviting in the photos, had half-dead plants in the window. The table was nasty-looking and covered with a piece of clear plastic. Chair cushions were dirty. The kitchen was horrible. All the windows were dirty and old, left open, one pulled shut with a dirty piece of string. On the counter was a dish drainer covered with crud that I’m sure had never been washed. Then I went into the bedroom. What was on the floor. Some dirty, old black shag rug, not the plain Berber rug from the photo. Next to a roll-away bed, I saw two mismatched towels on the table. I picked them up, and they were not anything I would put next to my body. Absolutely — hard as boards. I spent the night, showered in the morning using towels I borrowed from a friend, and packed my belongings. I took photos of everything and left. I did not post a nasty review on any website. The host offered me $30, which I turned down. I have legitimate complaints and would like to be reimbursed for the costs I incurred. Can you help. Sharon Shaughnessy, Chicago. A: Airbnb should never allow a rental like this in its system. I reviewed the photos you sent, and I can’t believe you lasted one night in it. Airbnb publishes a set of hospitality standards and even has an app its hosts can download. Source: www.sfgate.com
There’s no single definition of California style. It’s as varied and interesting as its geography and climate. You can get a Cali vibe going in lots of different directions. For instance, moody colors and a connection with the temperate, coniferous forests of Northern California characterize that region’s look. Think weathered woods, leathers and boreal forest and coastal hues like indigo, dark green and stone. Southern California’s a mix of surf-culture casual and movie-studio glamour. Channel the sun and sand with beachy, “retro-modern” hues such as deep aqua, coral, sand and reclaimed materials. Spacy midcentury modern furnishings in hot orange, white, turquoise and fireball red add punch. “For me, quintessential ‘California Style’ is laidback, hip and happy. Our gorgeous natural light is the star, and we support it with breezy fabrics, natural textures and a relaxed vibe,” said Kim Myles, Los Angeles-based winner of HGTV’s “Design Star. Her tips for aspiring decorators: “The key is to keep it casual. California style is the opposite of uptight, so step away from high-maintenance fabrics and fussy finishes. Simplicity is your friend. One large statement — a single wall of color or a beautifully patterned rug — supported by low-key furnishings is more Cali than a room full of fussy clutter. Don’t forget the walls. For that statement hue, consider Farrow & Ball’s “Yellowcake,” “St. Giles Blue,” “Arsenic” and “Charlotte’s Locks,” as well as Benjamin Moore’s “China White” and “Fresno” ( www. farrow-ball. benjaminmoore. Modernica stocks a selection of Eames-style Fiberglas chairs and George Nelson lighting designs ( www. Take advantage of evoking an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. CB2’s Nest coffee table and Fray pendant fixture bring natural textures home ( www. One of Myles’ favorite sources is Black Hill Design, a furniture studio in Tucson, Ariz. Their hefty yet sophisticated wood lamps and coffee tables like the lithe, muscular Catalina have a crafted coolness. Jake Scott, Black Hill’s founder, thinks it’s the simplicity of his pieces that attracts Californians. “The West Coast has that easy sensibility about it. Many Californians are inherently connected with nature because of the topography of the state,” he said. “I think my pieces reflect some of that. Simple, strong materials with adherence.

"I had a burger today, and it made me feel awful," Forbes once quoted him as saying. "If I tried to play serious chess tonight I'd play awful. " So the next time Carlsen -- or any other grandmaster, for that matter -- is in town for a championship tournament at the St. Louis Chess Club and Scholastic Center, the last thing he'll order at the adjacent Kingside Diner is the "Kingside Slider. " He'll pass on the over-medium fried egg that cradles hunks of succulent pulled pork like a burrito and the accompanying black-pepper-flecked hash browns that double as a sponge for clarified butter. Carlsen will surely turn up his nose at the rich, mildly spiced chorizo chili that smothers the platter like an upscale slinger, and he'll certainly refrain from dipping slices of griddled toast into the concoction. That's too bad for him. Kingside Diner is the work of chef Aaron Teitelbaum, who is best known for his other Central West End venture, Herbie's Vintage '72. Teitelbaum had been lamenting the lack of a proper diner in the cosmopolitan neighborhood for some time, at one... When the Lester's space opened up next to the St. Louis Chess Club last November, he jumped at the chance to realize his vision for a casual, breakfast-all-day sort of spot. But don't let the word "diner" fool you. The sophistication that Teitelbaum is known for at Herbie's shines through at Kingside Diner, elevating the place far above the 24-hour greasy spoons that dot the blue-collar corners of the city. The décor is the first clue that this is a more upscale concept. The open main dining room is flanked on one side by a polished, granite-topped bar and on the other by two brown velvet couches -- a chess board between them. Large picture windows provide a view of tree-lined Maryland Avenue, and black tables with basket-woven leather chairs give a modern touch. There's also a lovely upstairs patio that overlooks the street and a cozy downstairs reading nook outfitted with a miniature library on all things chess. For those who wish to watch, rather than read up on, the game, several large televisions are scattered throughout the restaurant, oftentimes streaming live chess matches. Kingside Diner offers breakfast all day -- a good thing, because a craving for the aforementioned "Slider" could strike at any time. An equally wonderful way to indulge in.
