This week we’ll be exploring design that straddles the line between useful and luxurious.
- A kitchen by Lodder Keukens. Watch for Meredith’s Kitchen Design post about the Dutch company on Thursday.
- Is it time for brick floors to make a comeback? Philip Johnson’s iconic Glass House in Connecticut is filled with practical design ideas worth considering. In today’s Architect Visit, Margot explores the landmark’s lessons in minimalist living.
- Atmospheric mirrors created by a New York glass artist. Read about her work in Julie’s Art & Decoration post on Tuesday.
- The perfect companion for a wall of mirrors? Look for Wednesday’s 10 Easy Pieces: sparkly light bulbs, holiday edition.
- Spotted (and admired): A stately new black range with an alluring wood handle. We predict it’s the look of things to come; read about it in Thursday’s Appliance post.
- Looking for presents for your mate, kids, in-laws, colleagues, and more? Allow us to help. Our Gift Guide series continues up until Christmas. On Friday, Julie presents books for the interiors addict.
- In this weekend’s The Architect Is In, we’re spotlighting Hugh Randolph’s clever renovation of an Austin cottage, world’s hardest working staircase included. Randolph will be on standby to answer your design and remodeling questions all weekend.
