In light of last week's horrific crane accident and the one that preceded it a few months before, Mayor Bloomberg's office has announced a new legislation agenda to enable the Buildings Department to flex its muscles a bit more in both oversight and enforcement of construction codes in New York. This new agenda has the "support of construction developers, contractors and labor leaders,"...as if there were any alternative to supporting stricter regulation on building projects. Our new friend Mitchell Hall over at NYC Blog Estate has a breakdown of what the new rules will mean.

Here's a how-to subject rarely discussed...what is the best way to dispose of a used mattress? In suburbia, many towns offer what's known as Special Pickup, but not everywhere.

Last but not least, we were really digging Remodelista's latest product round-up in their 10 Easy Pieces series. This week, it was all about wastebaskets, yes wastebaskets!

That being said, let one of these 10 ideas give you an excuse to make a small change in the corner of whichever room you desire.
