A Wonderful Remodeled Portland Home Embraces Wabi-Sabi — House Tour

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 12:00:00 -0400

Name: Angela and Wubbi the Bulldog
Location: SE Portland, Oregon
Size: 2,500 square feet

When Angela purchased her turn-of-the-century home, the kitchen was literally falling off the back of the house. "After moving in, I learned the original 1906 kitchen was moved from the center of the house onto the BACK PORCH! That little tidbit explained the slope of the kitchen floor! I had myself a genuine indoor/outdoor kitchen. For that reason and more, everything was ripped out down to the studs, a solid foundation was poured, and all new everything was installed..."

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 11:00:00 -0400

One of the things I love most about living in New York is catching little glimpses of outdoor spaces — somebody's patio or rooftop garden, little pockets of green within the city. Of course gardens are always lovely, but these city gardens seem especially precious because they are so rare, and especially verdant and inviting compared with the noise and bustle of the city. I've hunted down blah beautiful city outdoor spaces, so whether you live in New York or not, and whether you have an outdoor space or not, you can experience this feeling, too.

How To Make a Quick & Easy Folding Room Screen — Apartment Therapy Tutorials

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 09:00:00 -0400

(Image credit: Dabney Frake) Privacy screens are like folding sculptures, both visually interesting as well as functional. In an outside space, they are a buffer between you and the neighbors, or can block out the bright sun. Inside, they divide spaces, hide clutter, or even serve as a headboard. Making a custom screen is also (surprisingly!) a quick and easy DIY. READ MORE »[...]

Sorry, Parents: Nobody Wants the Family "Heirlooms"

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 16:45:00 -0400

In a modern world currently intrigued by minimalism, there's something that all three adult generations can agree on: the problem of dealing with the collections curated (hoarded?) by our family members. From younger boomers and Gen X'ers sandwiched between their aging/dying parents and their own children to millennials trying to gently manage expectations (and their own limited budgets and storage space) without hurt feelings, the message is crystal clear. As Forbes said recently, "Sorry, nobody wants your stuff."

These Unusual Kitchens Have One Really Good Thing Going For Them

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 14:00:00 -0400

We've written posts before dedicated to tiny kitchens, but this post is dedicated to a particular kind of tiny kitchen: the kind that only takes up one wall. It's a departure from the average —a U, galley shape, or even an L-shaped kitchen — and while it abandons the traditional wisdom of the work triangle, it does have certain advantages. Besides occupying limited space, the one wall kitchen, because it hugs the wall, is a good option to avoid breaking up an open floorplan comprising a kitchen, dining space, and living room. And the space that isn't occupied by extra cabinets is perfect for a dining table, or even a bar. Let's take a look.
