Trend Alert: Statement-Making Abstract Rugs

Noticed of late—colorful rugs that look like they belong in an exhibit of abstract art. Here are a few we spotted and approve of: Above: Cold Picnic hit it big with the now-ubiquitous “Boobs” bath mat a few year ago, and since then they’ve expanded to eye-catching abstract rugs that feature refreshingly retro palettes. Their hand-tufted wool Salt Flats Rug starts at $135 for the 2×3. Above: Minna, based in Hudson, New York, partners with artisans to create ethically made goods for the h...

Hyrdopod Gardening Set

Made for desks, window sills and other small spaces, the Hydropod by Brooklyn-based W&P is a five-piece hydroponic planter set made for at-home soil-free farming. The process leaves a significantly smaller footprint—using a nutrient water solvent as a food source. Made from plastic and frosted glass, the subtle design will offer a pop of color once your herbs start to bloom.

Current Obsessions: In the Green

Among the things we’ve bookmarked, forwarded to each other, and pored over this week: two sample sales, a book party, a new release from Farrow & Ball, and more: Above: Current object of our desire? An umbrella basket from Korbo (their first new design in five years), just in time for spring. The Organized Home book, in good company. Have an ailing houseplant? Kristina went on the air to reveal what you might be doing wrong (and how to fix it).

13 Favorite All-Purpose Cleaners, Eco Edition

There’s an ever-growing array of eco-friendly cleaning products on the market, all of which ditch chemicals and harsh scents (remember Pledge?) in favor of natural, plant-derived ingredients and essential oils. We particularly like those that do double (or triple) duty, safe for use all over the house: on counters, tile, floors, and bathrooms, and even (in some cases) dishes and laundry. As one such company says, these solutions leave “a clean you can actually eat off of”—good news for the kitch...

Suburb Staid No More: A California-French Family Remake a Bay Area House

When we first met Stéphanie Ross several years ago, she had a hint of plaster dust in her hair. That was at Remodelista’s San Francisco Market, where she was showing her children’s clothing line, Les Petits Carreaux (now available at Anthropologie and in some women’s sizes, too). At the time, she had just about finished resuscitating her family’s apartment near the Champs-Élysées—we took a tour and immediately featured it: see A Grand but Understated Flat in Paris. And she was also getting start...

Shape Up Collection by Roll & Hill

The Shape Up Collection of lighting by Roll & Hill was designed by Seattle-born, Brooklyn-based Ladies & Gentlemen Studio. The largest of the pieces is Shape Up 5-Piece Chandelier, which perhaps does the best job of highlighting the geometric playfulness of the collection. A modular system of cords and hubs, Shape Up 5-Piece Chandelier can be composed “in response to a space’s architecture and function.” The Cone and Hemisphere are available in three finishes: blackened steel, brushed brass, an...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Great Expectations

Imagine a world… A world changing fast, and faster, a world of machinery and innovation. A world where the rich and powerful want nothing more than to expand their empire at any cost… yet even in the grimiest hearts of the cities, heroes rise up from the common people. Imagine a cemetery in the dead of winter. Imagine that, within that cemetery, a scared young kid meets a man on the run. This encounter changes both of their lives forever, witnessed by one particular headstone. The...

What to Read in This Week’s Domestic Science Issue

We know the official start of spring isn’t until March 20, but we like to consider Daylight Savings Time the unofficial start—time to air out the house and do an early spring clean. To wit, we’re delving into all things Domestic Science this week. Here’s what’s coming up: Above: A glimpse inside the Iris Hantverk workshop in Stockholm, where some of our favorite utilitarian brushes are made.

10 Things Nobody Tells You About Painting Floors

For maximum transformation on minimum budget, you can’t beat paint. A new color on the walls can change the mood of a room, but it doesn’t stop there: a few coats can change up a piece of furniture or transform an entire kitchen. So when Fan asked, in a recent editorial meeting, what to do about the unloved flooring in her guest bath, Julie’s answer was, of course: paint it. Painted wood floors are most often associated with seaside cottages, where they originated for their no-fuss practicality ...

Colorful Pillows Inspired by Portuguese Tiles from Lusitano Studio

Carlos João Parreira, an expat Portuguese living in Brooklyn, launched Lusitano Studio in 2017 “with a mission to create a brand that ethically supports Portuguese artisans and helps to keep craft strong,” he says. “Working with third generation seamstresses who specialize in a Portuguese version of patchwork, each pillow requires hours of effort in hand-cutting panels to craft each pattern.” Here’s a look: N.B. Lositano Studio also offers an array of household essentials, from handmade ceramics...

Bohemian Restraint: Lena Corwin’s Tranquil Home in San Francisco’s Outer Sunset

One of our favorite house tours on Remodelista in recent years? The Brooklyn brownstone duplex of Lena Corwin, a textile designer, photographer, and the author of two books (Printing by Hand and Made by Hand)—and her husband Josh Dreier. What we loved about their apartment was its offhand style, modest furnishings, and quiet restraint. Nothing felt belabored. Then, in 2013, the couple relocated to San Francisco, where Lena grew up, and bought and renovated a 1913 Craftsman-style house in the Out...

Before & After: A “Not Too Brooklyn” Bachelor Pad in Park Slope, Transformed with Paint

Dan Mazzarini of BHDM Design was given a mandate when it came to a dated apartment in Park Slope, Brooklyn: create a sophisticated and polished masculine retreat that was “not too Brooklyn” for the apartment’s bachelor owner, a book-loving lawyer with little time to fret about the details. The two-bedroom apartment was in good, if dated, condition, with a ho-hum mashup of middle-grade finishes, before Mazzarini got to work. He redid the whole apartment with several gallons of paint and a tight p...

Steal This Look: The $4K Parisian Kitchen from Two DIY Experts

You might think the impressively low price tag ($4,200) is what makes this renovation from Parisian designers Heju so exceptional, but it’s also the size. The kitchen is nested in a chambre de bonne, Paris’s answer to worker’s housing in the top floor garret of most buildings. The rooms are typically 65 to 130 square feet; they’re impossibly small (I know because I lived in one for a year) and any semblance of a kitchen is rarely functional. But Heju solved the problem with grey and white color-...

Small-Space Ideas to Steal: 7 Clever Twists on Room Dividers

If you have a roommate, live in a small studio, or want to break up a large open area, you might wish for walls where there are none. But unless you’re doing a big remodel, this isn’t always possible. Enter the clever room divider, which can be opened, closed, or rearranged on a whim—a particularly handy feature in rentals, and in spaces that need to serve more than one purpose.

10 Things Nobody Tells You About Washing Your Bedding

There’s nothing like a freshly made bed, with clean sheets and luxurious pillows—particularly during hibernating season. But is your bed (where you sleep, relax, read, watch Netflix and, quite possibly, eat and work) really clean? It’s a question we almost couldn’t bear to ask. “It pays to go deeper,” says bedding maven Tricia Rose of Rough Linen, when we did ask her how to maintain a truly clean bed. Some of her tips called us to attention; others let us off the hook (good news: you don’t need ...

“On The Smugglers’ Radar” is a feature for books that have caught our eye: books we have heard of via other bloggers, directly from publishers, and/or from our regular incursions into the Amazon jungle. Thus, the Smugglers’ Radar was born. Because we want far more books than we can possibly buy or review (what else is new?), we thought we would make the Smugglers’ Radar into a weekly feature – so YOU can tell us which books you have on your radar as well!
