Here at Remodelista, we like rooms that are designed to be lived in (see Rule No. 8 of the Remodelista Manifesto : Beauty needn't come at the cost of comfort or utility). Add kids to the equation and it can be tricky to strike the right balance. And so this week, in anticipation of gatherings ahead, we're presenting sensible and stylish solutions to multigenerational living. (Warning: You may be inspired to install a trapeze bar in your living room.) Above: Tranquillity begins in the bedroom. Photograph from Inner Sanctum: Maximum Calm in a London Townhouse . Monday Above: Later today we're running the first in our series of Gift Guides —they'll be appearing every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday up to the holidays. This week's gift guides are filled with our best kids' finds. Tuesday Above: This week's Object Lesson : Enamel cookware made by the same company for decades in dollhouse colors. Wednesday Above: In  10 Easy Pieces , Erin, the newest mother on our team, shares the result of a lot of research: the 10 best cribs out there, including the surprisingly affordable one, shown here, that she and her husband selected.

Friday Above: In Friday's Expert Advice post, a trio of expats in San Francisco show us how to stage a laid-back Thanksgiving, Northern California–style (festive table required, turkey optional).
