Serenity Now: An Indoor/Outdoor Retreat in California Wine Country

As early spring gives way to warmer weather and longer days, we’re taking cues from this project: a sprawling series of buildings in California wine country that embodies the idea of indoor/outdoor living. The compound belongs to a recently retired, LA-based couple who were looking to build a home for their next chapter, and settled on a rambling parcel of land in Calistoga, known for its wineries and natural hot springs. “When we first walked the property with the clients it was empty, just ope...

Upstairs, Downstairs: A London Home Designed for Two Households

We recently spotted a thoughtfully renovated London townhouse, designed by architect Michela Bertolini, that can accommodate two households. The building spans five levels and has 2,320 square feet of total living space. A central stairwell connects the floors; the upper and lower apartments are open to each other, but each is designed to function separately and privately if desired. This home, on St. Michael’s Road in London, is currently for sale on The Modern House. Have a look—and tell us wh...

Blue Streak: An Inventive, Postage Stamp-Sized Flat in the Center of Paris

French interior designer Marianne Evennou has a knack for color. Even for those of us on the Remodelista team for whom grey feels like a bold choice, Evennou has a way of making color look effortless: pairing rusts with pale greens, layering rooms in many shades of the same hue, using vibrant blues like others would a neutral. “Colors for me are like musical notes—they’re all good; you just have to adjust them to make a nice melody,” Evennou told Margot in our piece Home at the Office: Designer ...

The Riverside Inn: A Normandy Guesthouse from an Upstart American Restaurateur

Jordan Feilders is the American who introduced California-style artisanal burger and taco trucks to Paris. He was newly arrived from San Francisco in 2012 when he rolled out his mobile catering business, Cantine California, which made such a splash that Anthony Bourdain paid an enthusiastic visit and The New York Times reported: “Food Trucks in Paris? U.S. Cuisine Finds Open Minds, and Mouths.” Cantine California continues, but Feilders and his French wife, Tatiana Dupond, now the parents of two...

Vertical Alley: A Live/Work Tower for Two in Tokyo

In a city famous for its minuscule living quarters, a young creative couple managed to acquire a corner parcel of land. Located in Tokyo’s historic, densely populated Asakusa, the plot had been cleared of an existing structure and was just big enough for its new owners, confectioner Mio Tsuchiya and graphic designer Moe Furya, to construct their own streamlined mini tower with two floors devoted to work and two to home. Faced in concrete panels, the structure is punctuated with a series of squar...

Quiet Beauty in Edinburgh: At Home and Work with Nina Plummer of Ingredients LDN

When Nina and Craig left London for Edinburgh, they came seeking soulful living. The two met as psychology students at the Dundee University—Nina is Serbian and was raised in Vienna; Paul has Irish parents and grew up outside Edinburgh—and they take an analytical approach to interiors and the feelings rooms impart. Self-taught design aficionados, they share a love of antiques and timeless objects, of quiet spaces, and of applying intention and care to their quarters: “We like to think that if we...

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...

Creative Flow: A Novelist’s Elegant Pied-a-Terre by Colombe Studio

When we stumbled upon Colombe Studio’s Instagram account, we discovered image after image that activated our endorphins. It was clear that we had to share founder Marta Chrapka’s sophisticated projects on our site. A couple months ago, we did just that—see A Glamorous Pre-War Flat in Poland, Courtesy of Colombe Design (and eBay)—and today, not content with just a one-off, we’re spotlighting another refreshingly grown-up home by the Warsaw-based designer. This one belongs to a couple (a writer of...

Subtle Colors in a Former Victorian Carriage House in Hackney

Recently spotted, admired, and bookmarked for future palette inspiration: a poetic little carriage house in central Hackney, on the outskirts of London, that uses color in ways both surprising and subtle. We found the listing recently on The Modern House—and knew right away that it should kick off our New Colorways week. Ready to be charmed? Photography courtesy of The Modern House. Above: The house is just 813 square feet and has two bedrooms. Here, a peek into the kitchen from the dining ar...

Mill Valley Makeover: A “Ship-in-a-Bottle” Approach to a Historic California House

Eli and Allison Cohen weren’t looking to move. But when the old shingled house on their jogging route came up for sale, they succumbed to its surroundings—redwood forests, views of Mount Tamalpais, just two blocks from downtown Mill Valley, CA—and its future promise. “The place itself was charming but in tough shape,” Eli tells us. “The interior had been chopped up over the years, the floors sloped, there were funky stairwells all over, and almost none of the rooms took in The View.” On the up s...

Portlandia: Inside the Remodeled Farmhouse of a Cult Favorite Ceramicist

We’ve been fans of Portland, Oregon-based Notary Ceramics—the project of ceramicist Sarah Van Raden—ever since she exhibited at our Portland Market a few years back. Since then, her vessels and artful flower frogs have popped up everywhere, well beyond the Pacific Northwest. But becoming one of the country’s cult favorite ceramicists was not always the plan. Van Raden first took a pottery class in college, but didn’t go near a wheel again until a decade later, when she signed up for a class at a...

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...

Beneath the Surface: A Petite Manhattan Apartment with a Surprising Amount of Storage (and Small-Space Tricks)

The secret to this petite Manhattan apartment? Its inventive hidden storage—so well-hidden, in fact, that I didn’t notice it at first glance. When two Israeli-born architects, Noam Dvir and Daniel Rauchwerger of BoND, acquired the circa-1910, 520-square-foot apartment in the city’s West Chelsea neighborhood, it was laid out like a typical, cramped New York flat, with a railroad layout and a walled-off kitchen and bathroom in the center of the space that didn’t get any light. The duo transformed ...

A Reimagined Ranch House: An Artist’s Family Home, Ikea Kitchen and DIY Bath Ideas Included

“If you had known in advance all that your house would require—three move-out renovations in seven years—would you still have bought it?” Maya Schindler has come to see her Long Island, New York, ranch house as a member of her posse and her devotion to it is unwavering. Especially now that it’s been tailor remade for her and her family: husband, Ranaan Schul, and their kids, Naomi, 7, and Mikael, 5. Maya is a painter/installation artist and Ranaan is a mathematician—they met in high school in Je...

A Designer and an Antiquary’s Remodeled Guesthouses in Reims (Soon Available to Rent)

I have never been to Reims, the city in the Champagne region of France where all of the French kings were once crowned. But, through the magic of Instagram, I’ve spent the last few weeks poring over one of the most classically, quietly lovely projects I’ve seen: a pair of guesthouses and the accompanying family house of the family renovating them, steps from the city’s famous cathedral. It was Instagram that first led me to discover Les Penates Reims: While researching Nomibis—a flea market base...

A Glamorous Pre-War Flat in Poland, Courtesy of Colombe Design (and eBay)

“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast,” Hemingway famously wrote. He was commenting, of course, on how the city—and the memories made there—can leave an indelible mark on those who’ve lived there, a sentiment that all Francophiles would agree with. But what if memories aren’t enough? To be safe, the owner of this one-bedroom apartment in Warsaw decided to bring the glamour a...

The Six-Month Remodel: An Airy Flat in Nice Gets a New Lease on Life

Our London-based friend Helen Cathcart sent us photos recently of her newly renovated flat in Nice, which she restored in six short months and now rents out on Airbnb (follow her Instagram feed at @25RuePaganini). Here’s how it came about: “I have a good friend who lives in Nice,” Helen says. “She’s renovated a couple of properties there, and I had an epiphany when I first walked into her house. She was living the dream and why not! She and her husband had left London and were living in this bea...

‘The Simple Truth’: An Architect’s Historically Respectful Retreat in Provincetown

Built in 1802, the classic gable-front cottage in the Provincetown, MA, had everything Ezra Block and Jimmy Hung were looking for in a seaside retreat: an off-the-beaten-path location (down a quaint oyster-shell-paved lane), a generous flower and vegetable garden, and a free-standing shed large enough to host summer parties. Most important, the home offered unspoiled New England charm. “Shortly after we moved in,” Ezra recalled, “Jimmy remarked on how our little house was so ‘unique.’ As an arch...

Before & After: A Modern Makeover for a Circa-1850s Row House in Jersey City

When it came to remodeling their circa-1850s row house in the historic Harimus Cove area of downtown Jersey City, young couple Chakshu and Gabriel, who also have a small son, turned to Mowery Marsh Architects to create an open, light-filled home. The match, it turns out, was a good one. “From our first meeting it was apparent that Chakshu has a great sense of style,” says principal architect Jennifer Mowery Marsh, “I remember thinking ‘I bet she loves Remodelista!'” When Chakshu and Gabriel boug...

True Colors: Historical Paint Expert Pedro da Costa Felgueiras’ Beautifully Idiosyncratic London Home

Most people wouldn’t call a centuries-old home that had been abandoned for 30 years and had no roof, no working electricity, and no reliable plumbing a “dream house.” But Pedro da Costa Felgueiras is not like most people. The Portuguese-born Londoner is a hot-shot expert on historical paints and pigments (see T Magazine‘s profile of him here), and where most of us would have seen a tear-down, he saw his next project, one that would unite his professional life with his personal. “When I first sta...

A Flood-Proofed Brooklyn Rebuild on a Budget, Ikea Kitchen Included

Unless you’ve tried to secure funding under NYC’s post-Hurricane Sandy Build It Back recovery program, it’s hard to fathom all that the team behind this Brooklyn remodel went through from start to (ongoing) finish. Back in 2012, Sandy sent 8.5-feet of water surging into the basement and ground floor of the century-old, three-story Red Hook townhouse, leaving it partially collapsed and in need of an extreme flood-proofed makeover. The couple who own it, a writer-artist and a garden designer with ...

La Vie en Rose: Inside a Costumier’s Dreamlike, DIY Maison in France

How would a French costumier style her own stately country house? With quiet, rosy hues, cinematic hints of silver, and linens she sews herself. For months we’ve been following French stylist and costumier Céline Sathal on Instagram as she slowly and with care restores a traditional hôtel particulier in a tiny village outside of Tolouse. Sathal, who works as a costume designer for the French theater, opera, and cinema, found the 1870s house on Le Bon Coin, the French equivalent of Craiglist (“wh...

A Star LA Hair Stylist’s Year-Round Family Lake Cabin

Listen in when LA hair stylist Leanne Citrone trims Lauren Soloff’s platinum tresses, and you’ll hear upholstery choices and paint colors being parsed. The two became great friends when Leanne, co-owner of West Hollywood’s Andy LeCompte Salon (“LA’s most celeb-heavy beauty spot” according to Vogue) and Lauren, who runs her own interior design studio, worked together on Leanne’s Hancock Park house. They’ve since tackled the Citrone family cabin in Lake Arrowhead and invited us in for a look. A lo...

Inside a Netflix Star’s LA Bungalow, Budget Rental Secrets Included

For renters, it can be hard to make someone else’s house feel like your own, but for actress Jodi Balfour (you might recognize her as Jackie Kennedy from Netflix’s The Crown) and her partner Alex Ashbaugh, the challenge was a rewarding design exercise. After an abrupt move from a spacious apartment in Santa Monica, the couple now rents from a friend a 500-square-foot 1914 bungalow in Silverlake while they build a new house of their own in Highland Park. Though they’ve been in this transitional h...

Shift to Neutral: LA Jewelry Designer Kathleen Whitaker’s Radical Transformation

When we interviewed Kathleen Whitaker, the notable LA jewelry designer, four years ago about her turn-of-the-century home in LA’s Echo Park, she summed up her DIY remodel this way: “I suppose my jewelry designs are the antithesis of the expression displayed here at home.” Indeed. Back then, while her pieces were minimalist and understated, her home was expressive and vibrant with saturated colors. Today? “It’s flip-flopped. I started a sister collection that explores texture and color, and that...
