Neil Gaiman Reads His Manifesto on Making Art: Features the 10 Things He Wish He Knew As a Young Artist

I think you're absolutely allowed several minutes, possibly even half a day to feel very, very sorry for yourself indeed. And then just start making art. - Neil Gaiman It’s a bit early in the year for commencement speeches, but fortunately for lifelong learners who rely on a steady drip of inspiration and encouragement, author Neil Gaiman excels at putting old wine in new bottles. He repurposed his keynote address to Philadelphia's University of the Arts’ Class of 2012 for Art Matter...

Above: A half glass wall on the right contains the shower, while a newly sourced (but vintage looking) freestanding tub anchors the room. Photograph by Rich...

House of Hackney’s Majorelle Wallpaper is Beautifully Decadent

House of Hackney’s Majorelle Wallpaper is a new take on an iconic print. Inspired by a 19th Century design authored by French wallpaper house Zuber, Majorelle is a gothic stylization that evokes a storied decadence yet is also suitably luxurious for contemporary interiors. The design consists of vividly rendered flowers with naturalistic details—so lush and dense that they verge on psychedelia. House of Hackney offers Majorelle in a cornucopia of colors: Henna, Moss Green, Petrol, and Viola/P...

Restaurant Visit: Mãos at Blue Mountain School, London’s Creative Club of the Moment

After opening Hostem and The New Road Residence, what’s a visionary creative couple to do? The answer for James Brown and Christie Fels was to establish the Blue Mountain School in London’s Shoreditch, a clubhouse, in their words, “dedicated to nurturing engagements and interactions between diverse practices.” Translation: The six-story brick structure, overhauled by 6a architects, serves as a place for inventive comrades to show their work and for others to browse, buy, and eat.

A Star Is Born: A Rehabbed London Maisonette from a Newly Minted Designer, High/Low Secrets Included

Almost exactly two years ago, a reader submission landed in our inbox from Lisa Jones, a former fashion buyer. The pitch? A dark and dated bungalow on New York’s Shelter Island that she and husband James Hyatt had remodeled, tip to toe, into a midcentury-style lakeside escape (with a laundry room modeled directly after Julie’s). The story—A Fashion Buyer’s Danish-Inspired Getaway on Shelter Island—was a hit. At the time the editorial team pored over the photos and Jones’ knack for sourcing vinta...

Hulu's The Bisexual Finally Gets My Sexuality Right

Labels can be a tricky thing to accept, even the ones we claim for ourselves.Who am I? I’m Irish, I’m a woman, I’m in a relationship, I’m bisexual. Those are a few things I can use to introduce myself, to give a quick snapshot of my standout points, the greatest hits. But sometimes — a lot of the time, even — those descriptions don’t sit right with me, even if they’re all true. When I say them out loud they seem to pin me in one place and to make me speak with a particular voice. They don’t see...

The Rose: A Singular Seaside Inn on the English Coast, Color Edition

The Rose is a just-opened, eight-bedroomed seaside inn in East Kent, England. The owners—who all have holiday homes in the area—had their eye on the run-down High Street boozer for years before taking over the lease last summer. Since then, they have worked in collaboration with interior designers Harding and Read and stylist Michelle Kelly to create a look that is part granny-chic, part @accidentallywesanderson.

Start from Scratch: A Food Writer’s First Renovation in South London

Writer Mina Holland and musician Freddie Denham-Webb were looking to buy their first house in London earlier this year. When offer after offer fell through, “invariably because someone else gazumped us,” says Mina, they went south of the river and bought a 750-square-foot maisonette in Crofton Park. “Our mission was to keep costs down as much as possible, but because this was our first home, we had to buy everything from scratch. We bought the house knowing we wanted to do work, so we didn’t max...

2019 LEVC TX Taxi Review: Driving the New Plug-In Hybrid London Taxi

Taxi! In Manhattan, a battered yellow Crown Vic would shimmy to the curb; in Paris, a growling Peugeot 504 diesel. Down in Calcutta, it would be a Hindustan Ambassador, a motorized fossil based on a 1958 Morris Oxford. Up in Tokyo, a spotless Toyota Crown with a rear door that apparently opens itself and lace antimacassars on the headrests. In the years before the globalization of the auto industry, taxis were part of the unique visual signatures of the world’s great cities. But perhaps none has...

Before architect Craig Hutchinson of Hutch Design started work, the two-story brick house on Dericote Street was cramped and—because it’s surrounded on three sides by other buildings—almost completely devoid of light. With the exception of a small side extension, Hutchinson was tasked with creating space and light within the existing footprint. Among the tricks up his sleeve: finding extra dept...
