WHAT SHE SAID: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

Today we bring bring back our feature, “What She Said…” in which we both review books that the other has previously read and reviewed. This feature arose because of a very serious dilemma we faced at Casa de Smugglers: what happens when one of us reads and reviews a book that the other desperately wants to read and review? We can’t really post about the same book AGAIN, right? WRONG! Thus, “What She Said…” was born. Thea read The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein last year and has been t...

10 Things Nobody Tells You About Shiplap

Here at Remodelista we’ve been nursing a healthy obsession with shiplap for the last few years. But there are a surprising amount of misconceptions about shiplap: as one craftsman pointed out, the kind of cladding that’s been popularized over the last few years by shows like Fixer Upper isn’t, in fact, true shiplap. (Or, as he put it: “No, Joanna; that’s not shiplap.”) Here’s what you need to know to separate shiplap fact from fiction: 1. How to tell if it’s shiplap? Mind the gap. Above: Tr...

10 Things Nobody Tells You About Painting a Room White

Painting a room white can make it feel open, clean, spacious, quiet, or simple, and it’s always the go-to when it comes time for us to paint our interiors. But there’s more to white paint than you think. For example: tiny variations between white paints can give a vastly different effect on your space. Here are 10 things to know before you paint a room white. 1. Only a few white paints are actually pure white. Above: The many shades of white; photograph by Mel Walbridge from Architects’ 10 ...

An intimate pastel desert elopement in Valley of Fire State Park

If there was ever a reason to believe that everything happens for a reason, Justine + Peter’s Valley of Fire elopement as captured by Gaby J Photography is it. Justine had actually always dreamt of a small wedding in the desert—a complete change of scenery from New Jersey. But it wasn’t until their venue fell through that they were actually able to make this dream come true… in four months, no less! Luckily, she had a pretty distinct vision by then, so everything came together just right. Just...

10 Easy Pieces: Editors’ Favorite Hand-Operated Kitchen Tools

There’s a class of kitchen gadgets that are so souped-up, overcomplicated, and employ an excess of tech, that leave you wondering if you’re really cooking at all. Then there’s the old-fashioned, hand-crank-able tools that can get a whole group involved, if you like, and by the time you’re through, you can be certain you’ve really made the ice cream, apple pie, pasta, bread, butter, or mayonnaise yourself. Here, in our editors’ picks edition, are our personal favorite hand-operated kitchen tools....

10 Easy Pieces: Remodelista Editors’ Favorite French Cleaning Tools

This past summer I spent a month in France unearthing all sorts of French secrets: What region makes the best butter? Where do the Provencal buy their pétanque sets? What do the Parisian’s use to clean their parquet floors? Where is everyone getting their shoes? Some questions were left unanswered; others I got to the bottom of. Some of my best discoveries, turns out, were found in the most typical of hardware and sundries stores. When it comes to cleaning, the French aren’t wielding harsh chemi...

What’s next for podcasting?

The podcast market will discover the answer to a foundational question about its future in the next few years. Will it continue along the path of music streaming, where all podcasts are available everywhere on free, ad-supported tiers?  Or, will it follow the path of streaming TV into paid subscription services with exclusive content? Today, effectively all of the industry’s revenue is from advertising — at least in the United States. However, we’re seeing the first steps being taken towar...

Before & After: A Pet-Friendly Overhaul for the Laundry Closet

When Remodelista contributing editor Meredith Swinehart began planning for a big move from her longtime San Francisco Victorian apartment into her boyfriend’s early 2000s condo in nearby Emeryville, she started by scoping out available real estate for her furniture and essentials: a niche for her rolling desk, pantry shelves for her baking tools, and empty wall space for favored artwork. But there wasn’t an obvious available spot—or any spot at all—for one particularly unglamorous necessity: the...

The High/Low Table: 11 Ideas to Steal from the Hudson Valley

Meet Dana McClure, Chris Lanier, and their son, Parker. Former Brooklynites—she’s an artist/textile designer, he’s a chef/food stylist—they decided a few years ago to head for the hills to combine talents and set up their own upstate New York creative center. At Ravenwood, their newly remodeled 1850s barn, the couple stage Hudson Valley harvest meals in the fall, spring, and summer and also host a weekend farm stand. (See the schedule for the full list of goings-on.) The Ravenwood motto: “Where ...

A Typical Day on an Antarctica Expedition Cruise

What’s a typical day like in Antarctica? What do you do? How do you spend your time? How cold is it, anyway?! I’ve gotten so many questions about Antarctica, but what I’ve really wanted to write about is what a typical day in Antarctica is really like. First things first: anyone who has been to Antarctica is laughing because there’s no such thing as a typical day in Antarctica!  You’re held to the whims of the harsh environment. Your crew might have the best laid plans, and they can be knocked ...

Expert Advice: 12 Insider Tips for Sourcing Antiques and Vintage Online

We all know how to snag the best stuff at a tag sale—get there before the crowd, pounce when you see something you want. Getting the best deals, on the other hand, often means being there just as the doors are closing, when sellers are desperate to unload what’s left. But it’s a whole different game when you’re shopping online—whether you’re in the market for high-end antiques or flea-market finds.

DIY: New England Spatter-Painted Floors

Here on Cape Cod (where I’m lucky enough to spend the summer), splatter- or spatter-painted floors are so common that we take them for granted. I don’t know why our Victorian area ancestors started spatter-painting their floors—perhaps they couldn’t afford rugs, or more likely, they didn’t want to constantly beat the sand out of them—but I, for one, am glad they did. First of all, spatter-painted floors hide a multitude of sins; almost nothing shows up on them. But more important, they are simpl...

Before & After: A Low-Cost Summer Guest Room Makeover, Cape Cod Edition

Earlier this summer, Remodelista editor in chief Julie Carlson realized she had to do something about the neglected guest bedroom in her Wellfleet, Massachusetts, summerhouse if she wanted repeat visitors. Formerly used as a study, the room had seen better days: The shelves were lined with dusty academic tomes, the baby blue walls and ceiling were peeling, and the closet interior and ancient iron radiator hadn’t been painted in decades (if not a century). For advice on achieving the perfect summ...
