10 modern home decorating ideas that'll transform any traditional space

Two rules interior designers consistently remind us about decorating are to keep in mind your home's original architecture and to try to stay true to your home's roots. This doesn't mean going full-blown Victorian with your furniture in a historic terrace home but rather to respect the original bones of the space, look for materials that were found in the era your home was created, and give a few nods to the time period in your decor. That said, you also don't want your home to feel as though it belongs in another era, so keeping that balance between traditional and modern home decorating is an art that could always use some fine-tuning.

App review: Messenger Kids, Facebook-created app has fun features, collects kids' data

Parents need to know that Messenger Kids is a kids' messaging app created by Facebook targeting kids under 13. After downloading, a parent (or anyone with an existing Facebook account) must log in with their Facebook credentials, and that person can then approve all contacts in the Messenger Kids app. Parents can also add contacts to their kid's account via the grown-up version of Messenger. Within a message, kids can send kid-appropriate gifs, stickers, emojis, and live filters, and they can also access all of the photos and videos on the device. Kids can also have live video chats with their approved contacts. Since kids can't delete messages, parents can monitor what their kids send through the app. Though there are no ads or purchases, the privacy policy states that all content (message content and app usage details) is stored and that information is used to develop new products. Read the app's privacy policy to find out more about the types of information collected and shared.

Milwaukee: More than just beer here

"Arrived in Milwaukee. Found beer," my social media post said. Because honestly, beer is about the only thing I knew about the city. And make no mistake, beer is big there. You can tour any one of more than a dozen breweries, see the mansion that Pabst built, the ballpark that Miller built. But to say Milwaukee is all about beer is to sell it short.
