Trend Alert: 21st Century Scalloping

Prissy, preppy, the doily school of decorating—for years now, there’s been a lot not to like about scalloped detailing.

Here, 15 notable interiors and designs with scalloping. Consider adding a few ripples to your own quarters. Above: Scalloped trim on a banquette in a paneled pool house in LA by Frances Merrill of Reath Interiors. P...

Object of Desire: Rebekah Miles Floral Ceramic Table Lamp

Lamps can be tricky. They’re capable of imparting both light and character to a room, so it seems odd that so many available options feel so . . . sterile. Enter Rebekah Miles—a longtime Remodelista favorite and ceramic artist based in Ojai, California—and her hand-painted floral ceramic table lamps. Miles conceives of her ceramic pieces as “functional paintings,” and it’s easy to see how these lamp bases, at once practical yet evocative of the long-standing tradition of decorative pottery, will...

Functional Art: Hand-Painted Ceramics by California Artist Rebekah Miles

Recently, while compiling Gardenista’s Mother’s Day gift guide, I came across Rebekah Miles’ hand-painted pottery and knew that I had found something unusual. Rebekah is a fifth-generation Californian, currently living in Carpinteria, just south of Santa Barbara. Her ceramics, emblazoned with natural imagery (whimsical cacti, colorful fishes, or horses), are informed by her heritage: “I grew up in a rural lifestyle surrounded by nature. I’d say I’ve most closely followed in my grandmother’s foot...

It’s hard not to be seduced by the all-white kitchen, but for those willing to make permanent decisions in color, like colorful ranges and painted cabinets, the payoff can be huge. Take this pastel kitchen designed by Nicola Harding for a couple living in a renovated Georgian manse. On color, Harding explains: “We used dark colors to make large or shady spaces feel more intimate, and warm, uplifting tones to make grand spaces feel more relaxed.” With Plain English cabinets, factory lights, antiq...

Trend Alert: Sculptural Visage Vessels, Eerie Edition

We don’t much care for the trend of ceramics shaped like body parts—with one exception. Lately we’ve noticed faces, cast in ceramic and glass, peeking out from dark corners, and heads stashed unceremoniously on shelves. It’s a look just eerie enough for our taste: part death mask, part Pablo Picasso’s visage vases. Here are a handful of favorite face vases and head-shaped pots, suitable for Halloween and beyond.

Architects’ 8 Favorite Cool-Toned Neutral Paints

Among the finer points when it comes to choosing a paint: whether it has warm or cool undertones (which can have a surprisingly big effect on a room, adding an extra complication when it comes to choosing a shade). Luckily, we have a panel of paint masters to consult. We asked the experts in the Remodelista Architect & Designer Directory for their favorite cool-toned whites and neutrals, all with undertones of green and blue, rather than red and yellow.
