Lawmakers in at least three state capitals are considering laws to repeal state preemption statutes.

Scene Stealers: Moody Vignettes in the Brooklyn Loft of the Founders of Ridge House

Last month, Annie shared Brooklyn-based design firm Ridge House’s neo-Gothic restoration in Nebraska. Today, we’re admiring another project by founders Lauren Lochry and Jeff Gillway: the couple’s own Bushwick loft, a space they use as a workshop, showroom, and, of course, home base. Just as the site—its architecture, environment, location, and history—led the design on the Nebraska project, their loft takes inspiration from its Brooklyn setting. “The space is in a converted industrial building,...

The Jeremiah Barker Papers: medicine as practiced 200 years ago

This is the story of a lost manuscript, an unpublished book written 200 years ago by a rural physician in New England—not one of the elites, but a preceptor-trained doctor who spent his long life taking care of people and writing about it. He is unique because of his fierce determination to keep up with the medical literature and communicate with both peers and patients. We don’t know why his book was never quite finished and published, but its discovery provides an important new primary source ...

An “Ode to the Pacific Northwest” in a Portland, OR, Craftsman

A while back, Annie wrote about a loft rehab in Portland, Oregon, by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design that manages to feel of-the-moment yet not trendy at all.

As it turns out, it shares the same lead designer as the loft overhaul, Mira Eng-Goetz, who went above and beyond for this renovation of a 1907 Craftsman: Aside from sourcing furniture and lighting, choosing paints an...

How James Beard came to define good taste and fine dining in ‘Man Who Ate Too Much’

By Richard Cytowic On a picnic in Southwest France with Alice B. Toklas and company in tow, overlooking a spectacular vista and the house where Maurice Ravel had lived, James Beard observed that Toklas insisted on sitting with her back to the scenery. “I never face the view,” she tells him. “It takes my mind off eating.” James Beard constantly fixed his mind on food, its accoutrements, and above all the sensuous pleasures of eating.
