Remodeling 101: Unwanted Textured Walls (and How to Get Rid of Them)

Textured, even excavated interior walls—the sort with charmingly exposed plaster or peeled-back wallpaper—are trending. (Read: Trend Alert: The Excavated Look, 15 Ways.) Not so much the other sort of textured walls: the “orange peel,” popcorn, or faux-stucco walls that might plague your house or rental. If you love your new place but don’t love the textured walls, what’s the solution? To get some options, we talked with Joan Barton, owner of Los Angeles’s Dirty Girl Construction. (She has helped...

Remodeling 101: What Is Crown Molding? Plus, What You Need to Know

Many of us spend our days surrounded by molding, the trim often used around windows, doors, and on ceilings in interiors. But how much time do we spend thinking about it? Precious little, right? But the day may come when you actually need to know about molding, so let us give you a head start. We decided to start with crown molding, a whole category unto itself. (We’ll circle back to other kinds of molding in a later post—stay tuned.) To find out the crucial points, we talked to architect James ...

Luxe on a Dime: 14 High/Low Hacks for Using Marble Scraps, from the Remodelista Archives

Lately one high/low hack has been popping up everywhere we look: using bits and pieces of discarded or leftover marble around the house for a luxe look on a budget. Case in point: When we wrote about this Two-Week, $1,000, 500-Square-Foot Rental Overhaul in Bushwick, Brooklyn, design student Kristina Line revealed that she scoured nearby marble scrap yards for unwanted pieces to create shelving and backsplashes in her DIY apartment; the restauranteurs behind the design-forward Portuguese wine ba...

Expert Advice: 23 Genius, Reversible, Budget-Friendly Hacks to Transform a Rental Apartment

Here in New York, finding the perfect apartment is an almost futile quest. Unless you’re one of the lucky few—we all know that one person who somehow happened upon a gem, with hardwood floors, an updated kitchen, tasteful light fixtures, and a working fireplace to boot—chances are you’ll end up wanting to change at least one thing about your apartment. (I love the big windows and tall ceilings of my Manhattan rental, but I curse the brown laminate kitchen cabinets every time I walk by.) But we’v...

Modern Thrift: Lucile Demory’s Architect-Designed Rental in Paris

When Lucile Demory moved back to Paris last year after a stint in Philadelphia, she was lucky enough to find an architect-designed rental loft at the end of a courtyard, in the 10th Arrondissement (a friend’s sister happened to be moving out at the same time). Lucile, who is the communications director at A.P.C., and her boyfriend, Michel Spavone, a documentary producer, moved in right away but changed very little. It’s the decor that stands out. Lucile—like her sister, creative director Clariss...

A Renovated Loft in Paris by a Young Architect on the Up

We recently learned about Paris-based architect Nicholas Sisto through his collaborator, Clarisse Demory. One look at his portfolio (he recently redesigned the Marais store of fashion brand Lemaire) left us wanting to know more. Sisto, a young architect in his early thirties, grew up in the French Alps where an interest in photography (taking pictures of “ruins, modernist buildings, urbanism, and the alpine landscape”) led him to architecture. He founded his own practice, Sisto Studios, in 2012 ...

Link Love: The Importance of Store Design

AnOther Magazine shows us five of fashion’s most remarkable store interiors. Meet Clarisse Demory, the creative director who is transforming spaces for fashion brands like Christophe Lemaire. I also found this 2015 article about watch brands putting an emphasis on store design interesting, because it not only discusses how these companies design store spaces but also reveals just how much thought is put into creating the right atmosphere with music.
