I use Blurb. I've been making an annual "yearbook" which always turns out great. I also make photo-books to commemorate special events (social, wedding). And I made a little one to gift to my friend's 2 year old boy that had pictures of the people in his life and their names.
Capturing Your Baby's First Year...in Print

Interesting topic! My husband and I have a pretty balanced understanding which works for us. We broke it down by room. I have a room that is all mine; it's like a change room essentially so I make all the decisions there. And he has an office which is all his as well as a poker room; so he gets the final say there. He uses the basement the most so has a lot of pull on the decor downstairs but I still have quite a bit of input as he values my judgement and I am more interested in interior design than he is. I have the final say in the kitchen and living room but I run most ideas past him. If one of us absolutely HATES something then we respect that. Luckily we have found a balance in our differing design styles and have wound up with a mix between mid century/vintage and modern with minimal clutter and lots of neutrals (like various wood stains, whites and greys).

I don't think it's necessary to use semi-gloss in the kitchen and bathroom. I use satin and I think that's pretty standard as most "kitchen and bath" paints are a satin finish. With the new technologies used in paint these days you don't need to rely on the sheen to protect your paint job as much. I would use a semi-gloss on trim only - even then I still tend to stick with a satin.

Hmm, you could you paint the scallops the same colour as the trim that it is pasted against. Right now there is a big contrast between the white of the underneath trim and the brown of the scallops so it's quite noticeable. Maybe you could paint it all white? Or what might look nice is painting all of the white on the house plus the scallops a dark muddy grey (with brown undertones).
