Paint Random-Width Stripes

Alongside a lush Technicolor garden, an alfresco hangout spot can look a little lackluster. Not so this open-sided extension on a house in Suffern, NY, where beadboard walls are striped up and down with unexpected color.“The house is very traditional, and the contemporariness of the stripes adds some freshness,” says designer Thomas Jayne, author of the recently published Classical Principles of Modern Design. Jayne matched the colors to hues used inside the home for a seamless transition between indoors and out, and tasked Manhattan-based painter Chuck Hettinger with brightening the beadboard in Roman stripes—irregular in width, with colors randomly repeating. “It’s…

The DIY Makeover: George and Willy’s Urban Cabin (Created from a Tiny 1991 Suburban House)

Remodelista regulars no doubt have admired the work of George & Willy. They’re the cute, young New Zealander duo who made their design debut with the Studio Roller, a hanging roll of kraft paper for keeping To Do lists and making sketches. Since then, George Wilkins and Will McCallum have gone on to offer a suspended clothes drying rack, a fire starter inspired by Alaskan whalers, and a collection of signs including a Scrabble-like letter board. Their creations are all about modern utility paired with a delightful Down Under playfulness. They sum up their M.O. as “making your space exciting”—which…


Saving Sustainably: Interior Walls

Editor’s note: This is one in a series of blogs detailing the construction of a net-zero-energy house in Point Roberts, Washington, by an owner-builder with relatively little building experience. A list of Matt Bath’s GBA articles can be found at the bottom of this page. You’ll find Matt Bath’s full blog, Saving Sustainably, here. If you want to follow project costs, you can keep an eye on a budget worksheet here. After passing the insulation inspection, I had permission to enclose the walls.

A Better Registry: 9 Places to Shop for the Modern Couple

I don’t know about you, but very rarely have I perused a wedding registry and thought: These things are beautiful and useful. I find myself looking at registries a lot these days, and many I’ve encountered fall into two camps: the ones filled with lots of un-special stuff, and the ones that feel too special, fussy and old-fashioned. Consider, for example, the time I logged into one couple’s registry to find an assortment of drain covers and plastic scrub brushes—nothing befitting a celebration of a marriage. On the other end of the spectrum, another friend I know registered for a monogrammed silver…
