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...

Natural Instincts: An Interior Designer’s Cozy Weekend Home, Built for Tranquility

Like so many other real estate stories about moving to the burbs or buying a second home in the country, this one can be traced to an interloper: a cute new arrival in the form of a tiny baby girl named Matilda. Sheena and Paul Murphy had toyed with the idea of buying a second home in upstate New York, but truth be told, “it wasn’t an idea I was very excited about at the time,” says Sheena, an interior indesigner and founder of nune.

An Arts and Crafts Icon Reborn in the Catskills by Jersey Ice Cream Co.

As owners of Hayfield, one of the Catskills’ premier wedding venues, Christiana Mavromatis and Scott Arnold know a thing or two about love. So when the couple first laid eyes on Minwawa, a grand Arts and Crafts home in Tannerville, NY, they knew it was a match made in heaven. Not only was the couple attracted to the stunning views overlooking a mountain valley in Catskill State Park, they were also drawn in by the home’s sense of history, which was palpable in every nook and cranky.

Marston House in Vinalhaven: A Maine Tradition Continues

Long before they were Instagram stars, Sharon and Paul Mrozinski were my family’s favorite source for exceptional antiques. Whenever work or summer vacations took us to Maine, stopping off at their shop in Wiscasset was an absolute must. So you can imagine my horror when a couple of years ago, I heard they were selling Marston House. I believe the subject line in my followup email read, “Nooooooo, say it isn’t so!” Fortunately for me, my family, and thousands of their fans, Sharon and Paul and t...

Out at Sea: A Shipshape Renovation in Provincetown by Hein+Cozzi

“There are few places in the world where one could wash ashore, be embraced by the creative free spirit, and be happy to call it home: far-flung seaside enclaves like Capri, Goa, and Rhodes. In America there is only one such place: Provincetown.” So wrote Philip Cozzi, who, along with his wife, Kristin Hein, of Hein+Cozzi, sought to capture this seaside spirit in their latest project: a four-season rental overlooking Provincetown Harbor.

Lessons in Sparseness: A Black and White House in Rural Portugal with Echoes of the Shakers

Here’s a house that fits all the right notes for us this fall: a family house in the rural town of Lardosa, Portugal, with bone-white walls, matte black details, oil lamps, and simply hewn wooden shelves. The project is by Portuguese architect Pedro Duarte Bento, who got his start as an associate in the New York City office of Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill before moving back to his native Portugal to establish his own firm. Among our favorite projects by Bento: a sparsely appointed weekend house...

The Design Is in the Details: The Weavers House, Chan + Eayrs’ Huguenot-Inspired Oasis

If Zoe Chan Eayrs and Merlin Eayrs were actors, they would be of the method-acting variety—that is, intense, focused, and committed to the extreme. The young husband-wife team may not be famous on stage or screen, but they are rising stars in the architecture and interior design world, a notable feat given their firm is not yet five years old. In 2016, we wrote about one of their first projects (see The Renegade Real Estate Developers: Chan + Eayrs in London), and since then, they’ve completed j...
