Scene Stealers: Moody Vignettes in the Brooklyn Loft of the Founders of Ridge House

Last month, Annie shared Brooklyn-based design firm Ridge House’s neo-Gothic restoration in Nebraska. Today, we’re admiring another project by founders Lauren Lochry and Jeff Gillway: the couple’s own Bushwick loft, a space they use as a workshop, showroom, and, of course, home base. Just as the site—its architecture, environment, location, and history—led the design on the Nebraska project, their loft takes inspiration from its Brooklyn setting. “The space is in a converted industrial building,...

The Compact Live/Work Space of London Designer Ondine Ash

After 14 years working as a buyer in the London fashion industry, Ondine Ash decided to take a break and travel. Her time working for a major high street brand had raised a lot of questions about where products come from, so on her return, she reduced her hours to launch Ondine Ash, her own eponymous, ethically-conscious homewares collection inspired by her travels in Japan and South and Central America. Ash now runs the business from her compact, recently-renovated flat on the first floor of a ...

Remodelista Greatest Hits 2020: 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...

Remodelista Greatest Hits 2020: A Designer’s Bucolic Cottage in the Welsh Countryside

We recently came across Justine Cook’s lovely, centuries-old cottage in the Welsh countryside. Its snug dimensions, spare interiors, and soothing palette are just what we need right now to calm our pandemic-heightened nerves. Justine, an artist and interior design consultant, and her husband, a landscape and history writer, bought the bucolic property in 2009. “We loved the setting and the fact that we could watch the cloud shadows move across the valley below,” she says. Unlike most home renova...

Remodelista Greatest Hits 2020: Designer Glenn Ban’s Refined East Hamptons Cottage

While perusing Laura Fenton’s new book, The Little Book of Living Small, we were happy to see designer Glenn Ban‘s compact East Hamptons home featured. Julie wrote about his Provincetown cottage a few years ago, and it remains one of our favorite beach houses we’ve covered on our site. No surprise, Glenn’s Long Island hideaway, measuring just 600 square feet, is just as charming and refined. “I’ve always lived in smaller spaces. I connect with them. I like being able to see a home and its intent...

Lovely, Dark, and Deep: An 1800s Victorian House in Nebraska, Restored Down to the Doorknobs

This autumn I’ve been taken by the truly old-world interiors by Brooklyn-based firm Ridge House: Their projects are what I imagine spaces might have looked like a century and a half back, not with a kitchen but with a scullery, where the inhabitants would carry a candle to bed—and perhaps have a brass bed warmer to heat the covers before getting in. And fittingly enough, on the shortest day of the year, we’re taking a look at their dark-hued Cameron Residence project, a late Victorian, Queen Ann...

An “Ode to the Pacific Northwest” in a Portland, OR, Craftsman

A while back, Annie wrote about a loft rehab in Portland, Oregon, by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design that manages to feel of-the-moment yet not trendy at all. While perusing Helgerson’s site, I came across another inspired project that masters this rather difficult balancing act. As it turns out, it shares the same lead designer as the loft overhaul, Mira Eng-Goetz, who went above and beyond for this renovation of a 1907 Craftsman: Aside from sourcing furniture and lighting, choosing paints an...

Before and After: A Couple’s DIY Cabin Upstate, Redone During Quarantine

With all this time spent inside, there’s been a return to tinkering away at little projects: baking a loaf of bread, say, or stitching a quilt. Or, if you’re like Yi-Mei Truxes and her husband Gray Reinhard, renovating an entire upstate cabin by hand. “I first stumbled upon a listing for the cabin about six years ago on Airbnb and was immediately struck by the incredible views,” says Yi-Mei. “I had never seen anything like it. We ended up staying there for an autumn weekend with a group of frien...

A Hollywood Director’s Refined Off-the-Grid Man Cabin by Commune Design

Where does Anthony Russo—who, co-directed with his brother four Marvel movies, including the highest-grossing movie of all time, Avengers: Endgame—go to decompress? Into the wilds of Angeles National Forest in the San Gabriel Mountains, where his 1900s cabin awaits with the promise of off-the-grid solitude, Thanos-style. Russo’s stone-clad retreat was originally built as part of the U.S. Forest Services’ program to promote responsible land use. The sought-after director was captivated by the ide...

Upstate Update: A Writer’s “Layered,” Eclectic Catskills Farmhouse, Three Years In

When we first featured the Catskills farmhouse of writer Lisa Przystup, it was the summer of 2017; the first solar eclipse in a century was about to take over the sky and cast little moon-shaped shadows on the ground; and Lisa and her husband, musician Jonathon Linaberry, then Brooklynites, had just found an 1800s farmhouse on a hilltop in Delhi, New York, to serve as their weekend escape. It became their weekend project, too: painting nearly every interior surface creamy white, DIY-ing a brass ...

Respect for the Old: In a Tiny London Flat, Antiques, Vintage Finds, and Charm to Spare

The key to surviving this week without losing my mind was indulging in some joyful distractions, like playing with my dog, walking with friends—and perusing the Tat.London Instagram account, which traffics in interiors of the mostly-British, traditional-with-a-twist sort. If you’re into patina, pattern, color, sink skirts, and disheveled bookshelves (as I have been of late), the feed is a balm. Recently, I spotted a post on the particularly serene home of Georgie Stogdon, the founder of newish o...

It Takes Two: A Pair of Brooklyn Heights Apartments Reconfigured Into One, by Shapeless Studio

Lately I’ve spent a quite a bit of time in my tiny apartment fantasizing about how much space we’d have if we could somehow merge with the flat next door. It’s something all city-dwellers dream of, especially these days: pushing out a few walls and getting more room. That’s what a pair of creative professionals recently got to do in real life, in a Civil War-era building in Brooklyn Heights: seamlessly combine two warehouse-like units into one cohesive, serene space, with help from Shapeless Stu...

Casa Cool: A Couple’s Secret Sanctuary in Mexico’s Colonial City of Mérida

If you could live anywhere, where would it be? For one well-traveled British couple (he’s a frequent-flying businessman; she’s in the hospitality industry), it’s the tropics of Mexico. They moved to the colonial city of Mérida in 2007, beguiled by the “wonderful weather and Yucatan lifestyle,” he says. Now that they’ve transformed a derelict 100-year-old building in the heart of the historic district into an eclectic and airy home, there’s nowhere else they’d rather be. “Mérida is an interesting...

‘Old California’ in a New Update of a 1907 Arts & Crafts-Style House in Los Angeles

The popular home design trend cluttering up Instagram these days calls for neutral colors, natural materials, and a casual spirit—all of which describes this striking house in the foothills of historic Lincoln Heights in Los Angeles. But that’s where the similarities end, because this singular project, by Patrick Bernatz Ward, is the antithesis of trendy, fast, disposable design. His clients, an artist and an actor, wanted a place that would “evoke a sense of Old California while incorporating a...

Rock Camp: Old-Meets-New Lake Cabins by an Upstart Maine Architect

Tucked into tall, wild woods on the shores of Mooselookmeguntic Lake in Maine’s Rangeley Lakes region is an unusual series of cabins—one cabin, really, made up of many small rooms. The first is what one might expect to find there: an old, classic one-room log house set under the pines. But to one side is a streamlined, even Scandinavian-esque extension with two peaks and sided with Eastern white cedar, the work of Maine-based architect Jocelyn Dickson. As it happens, this place—called Rock Camp—...

All Things Should Have Stories: A Richly Hued London Flat (With an Ikea Kitchen Too)

For some reason this week I’ve had the beginning of that Wallace Stevens poem in my head: “One must have a mind of winter…” But it’s a sense of autumn that seems to fill a first-level flat in London that Julie sent to me recently. That and some Portuguese influence. The flat is the vision—and home—of architects Lionel Real de Azúa (one third of Red Deer) and Sophie Rose (founder of Studio Thorn). “So we were the joint clients and designer/architects,” Lionel wrote to me by email. “The flat is in...

In the Glow: A Bright Bushwick Apartment, Courtesy of eBay, Craigslist, and Clever DIY Ideas

The best homes are the ones that evolve slowly over time, the kind of spaces where one can point to any object and the owner will have an interesting story about where it was sourced or how it was made. Take Clément and Sara Pascal’s Bushwick apartment. The couple (he’s a photographer; she’s a psychologist) bought the 1,000-square-foot flat in Brooklyn ten years ago—and it took them about that long to get it to where it is now. Much of the vintage midcentury furniture was found by patiently stal...

Summer Sounds: A Pair of Musicians’ Effortlessly Cool Redone Cape in Westerly, RI (Available on Airbnb)

A laidback place to escape to: That’s what brought musicians and artists Sean Spellman and My Larsdotter from Portland, Oregon; California; and Copenhagen to the small seaside town of Westerly, Rhode Island. “I was touring with my band for many years, and I had decided to leave Portland so that I could roam a little, live on the road for a while, in my van, at friends’, etc.,” Sean wrote to us. He’s in a band called Quiet Life and is a painter and artist (you can spot his minimal, vintage-y work...

Historical Reinterpretation: A Georgian Home Updated for a Young Family, by Fraher & Findlay

Renovating a home never comes without a few hiccups and halts, but this impressive South London project by Fraher & Findlay involved more than a fair share of complications. Dubbed the “Artists’ House” on account of the clients’ creative backgrounds, the building’s listed historical status meant that all plans had to be legally approved, and in fact, the architects’ application to move the kitchen from the basement to the parlor floor was at first rejected. “After a robust case was presented…at ...

A Moveable Feast: Two French Shop Owners’ Whimsical, Always-Changing House in Reims

Little vignettes that are always shifting, always offering something new to look at? Maybe that’s why I can’t look away from the Instagram feed of @nomibis, a vintage shop based in Reims, France, these days. If Nomibis sounds familiar, it’s because we featured the shop itself  a while back. We say “shop” a bit loosely because, in this case, Fabienne Nomibis and her companion, Pascal Bisson, run their marche aux puces entirely via Instagram and their website—and the in-situ photos of the products...

Artist in Residence: A Collage Artist’s Soulful Bungalow in Augusta, Georgia

“Gabi Hutchison is a collage artist from Augusta, Georgia. She is heavily influenced by texture and proportion. Her work is the result of an intuitive process in which she focuses on soft, organic, fluid shapes as well as texture, pattern, color and all the ways they interact.” The above is from Gabi’s artist statement, but it also aptly describes her sensibility when it comes to designing her home, a sweet, modest 1936 bungalow that is a pastiche of artwork (including her own beautiful collages...

Shipshape and Refreshed: A Considered Renovation of an 1898 Cabin on Maury Island

Maury Island, in Washington’s Puget Sound, is small. You’ve likely never heard of it before, but you may have heard of its larger neighbor, Vashon Island, to which it’s connected via an isthmus built by local homeowners in 1913. (Before then, the two islands were linked only during low tide.) Both are accessible only by ferry, the inconvenience of which has kept commercial growth at bay—and that’s how its residents like it, including designer Tim Pfeiffer (of Seattle-based architecture and inter...

The Anti-Surburban Beach House: A New Build that Prioritizes Craft Over Style, Community over Privacy

It’s natural to be influenced by your travels and to pepper your home with interior souvenirs. For instance, after vacationing in the Southwest one year, I became enamored with desert style and promptly picked up a few potted succulents, a Cosanti wind bell, and a couple throw pillows in that peach-coral hue so popular in that region of the country. Few among us, though, can claim to return from a trip and build an entirely new house inspired by the local architecture spotted while on vacation. ...

An Architect’s Narrow Townhouse in Montreal, Design Studio Included

The ask was formidable: update the Victorian-era townhouse; restore some of the period details that had been removed in an ill-conceived 1980s renovation; bring more light into the building, which had just two exposures (at the front and back); carve out a functional, client-ready office space that would feel separate from the rest of the home. And P.S., the building has a footprint of just 10 by 50 feet. Fortunately, the architect, Michael Godmer, was more than up for the challenge. It was his ...

Carved in Wood: The Bespoke Home of a Self-Taught Carpenter and an Interior Designer

We’re longtime admirers of Woodchuck, a small studio in the Netherlands that produces minimalist, artful handcrafted wood furniture—so much so that when we wrote about the brand (see that story here), we asked its founders, Tinta and Rutger Luhrman, if they would be interested in a home tour for this site. Tinta graciously declined back then, saying that their house wasn’t quite photo-ready yet. That was three years ago. Recently, we reached out again—and this time they agreed, though Tinta was ...

Lumière Lodge: A Couple’s Thoughtfully Hued Antique Cottage Down Under

Spotted recently during an afternoon of armchair travel: Lumière Lodge, a remodeled 1890s Victorian in the foothills of West Hobart, Tasmania. Since the winter of 2019, the house has been available as a rental for “creative content studio bookings”—photo shoots, workshops, and the like. What I love in particular is the pretty saturation of each room, with interiors ranging from bird’s egg blue to forest green to a surprising paler-than-pale pink, with effects both soothing and hopeful. And the b...

Second Act: A London Design Couple’s Townhouse in a Small French Market Town

London-based designers, Lone and Chris McCourt, had long fallen in love with the the small town of Uzès, France, and in fact, had bought a summer house on the outskirts. When a medieval building (built in 1200!) right in the heart of the village came on the market, they realized that while they enjoyed rural life, town life might just have more to offer. So the couple traded their country retreat for a four-story townhouse and embarked on a six-month restoration that was as sensitive as can be. ...

The Feminine Mystique: Model Lizzie Bowden’s Soft and ‘Girly’ Notting Hill Apartment

When model Lizzie Bowden decided to renovate her gracious duplex apartment with views of Ladbroke Gardens in Notting Hill, she knew just the designer to tap: a rising, risk-taking London-based tastemaker who just happens to also be her cousin, Hollie Bowden. Not only did they have shared family history, but the two actually lived together years ago, when they first moved to London. While almost everything for the project was newly sourced, “there are some relics in the mix from when Lizzie and I...
