A Paris Pied-à-Terre by Ishka Designs of Brooklyn

Anishka Clarke and Niya Bascom of Brooklyn’s Ishka Designs are an international duo–she grew up in Jamaica; he was born in London to Jamaican and Guyanese parents and raised in NYC. But neither had spent much time in Paris before Edouard, a French friend living in Brooklyn, came to them with an intriguing project: His childhood duplex near the Eiffel Tower–in a small late-19th-century building that originated as studios and living quarters for artisans working on the tower–needed editing and an ...

Industrial Revival: Atlas Repurposes a 1920s Abandoned Factory into a Creative Hub

“Deciding to restore the original windows was more-or-less a decision to compromise on energy-efficiency,” says Joseph. “We offset that by buying into a solar CSA, and currently all of the energy consumed by the building is solar generated.”As more and more city mice head for the hills, a rustic Brooklyn has emerged in the scenic Hudson River towns north of NYC. But industrial Newburgh, across the Hudson from happening Beacon, has until recently never been part of that scene. A once-booming indu...

The Sand-Free Cottage: 8 Ways to Keep the Beach at Bay

In summer nothing beats the feel of sand between your toes. Unless, of course, you happen to be inside. Sandy floors (or worse, sheets) are the bane of every beach cottage. But, as this native Cape Codder has discovered, there are ways to keep the sand at bay. Here are eight solutions to stop sand at the door. Photography by Justine Hand, except where noted. 1. Set up an outdoor foot-washing station. Above: At Merryfield Cottage in Truro, Massachusetts, owners Steve Corkin and Dan Maddalena i...

Functional Art: Hand-Painted Ceramics by California Artist Rebekah Miles

Recently, while compiling Gardenista’s Mother’s Day gift guide, I came across Rebekah Miles’ hand-painted pottery and knew that I had found something unusual. Rebekah is a fifth-generation Californian, currently living in Carpinteria, just south of Santa Barbara. Her ceramics, emblazoned with natural imagery (whimsical cacti, colorful fishes, or horses), are informed by her heritage: “I grew up in a rural lifestyle surrounded by nature. I’d say I’ve most closely followed in my grandmother’s foot...

Architect Visit: A Barn-Style House for the Future, Hudson Valley Edition

Ian Hague needed a place to chill out. When he acquired 75 untouched acres in New York’s Hudson Valley, the NYC fund manager (whose business focuses on Eastern Europe and Russia) envisioned a “hermitage in the forest” tailor-made to his interests: reading, building balsa wood model airplanes, driving a Tesla, and decompressing amid the treetops. He also wanted to create a state-of-the-art, low-impact retreat and enlisted sustainability specialists BarlisWedlick Architects of NYC and Hudson, New ...

The Potted Garden: A Planter for Every Purpose, from Rejuvenation

It’s the time of year for planting seedlings, cultivating spring flowers, starting an herb or vegetable garden, and dotting pots and planters all over—along the front path, on the porch steps, and around the patio. We like creating planter gardens this time of year in particular, when the weather is still changing: Unlike an in-the-ground garden, you can easily move pots inside, outside, and around the garden as needed, and rearrange your garden however and whenever you please. Whether you’re cr...

Sheltering at Home—and Posting on Instagram: 12 Inspiring Glimpses from Behind Closed Doors

Arranging, rearranging, sanitizing–and taking photos. These last few cooped-up weeks have been a time of interior introspection. And an opportunity to take part in some Instagram Show and Tell.

Year-Round At the Beach: At Home with Two Stylish Women in the Hamptons

On a trip to Paris’s Maison et Objet, our co-founders Julie and Francesca crossed paths with Mona Nerenberg, owner of Bloom in Sag Harbor, NY, a cult-favorite shop filled with Swedish antiques and white ceramics (now in its 18th year). Noting that the Gardenista team had been to her Hamptons home to admire the deer fencing—Mona is married to landscape designer Lisa Bynon—she invited us back to take a proper look inside. Mona and Lisa live in a 19th-century shingled house that came untouched—and ...

A New Brand from a Remodelista Editor: Faunamade for Dogs and Cats at Home

One stormy winter night 10 years ago, I opened the door to my Philadelphia walkup apartment and someone followed me inside. The intruder was small, wet, and emaciated, and could muster only the faintest cry to get my attention. I didn’t want a cat. In fact, I’d just attended the national dog show that airs on Thanksgiving to scout out the type of rescue dog I’d want to add to my life. But this cat needed help, so I let her inside just for the night. The rest of the story is long, but here are so...
