Bringing in the Sheaves: Harvest Table Inspiration from Caro of Somerset

Holiday table forecast: botanical clouds ahead. Suspended like rustic chandeliers, artful bundles of grass have been cropping up all over Instagrammed party spreads. This season we’re taking inspiration from a Nordic supper staged by Caro, Natalie Jones’s design shop, a favorite Remodelista pilgrimage stop in the town of Bruton, in Somerset, England. Jones collaborated with stylist Hana Snow on the natural party decorations. Breath in: the room is subtly perfumed with sweetgrass. Photography courtesy of Caro. Above: “The setting was inspired by a windswept walk through the forest and onto the beach,” explains Natalie—she used glassware as an allusion to water.…


10 Easy Pieces: Downdraft Range Vents

A bulky overhead range hood can be a blemish on the blueprint of an ultra-streamlined kitchen. Architects despise them; they’re obtrusive and obstructive, but the issue of residual cooking residue is not insignificant. The answer? The downdraft range vent. A slim retractable design that sits flush with the range or countertop and is fairly undetectable when not in use. These are the 10 models we like most, from a range of popular makers for coordinating ranges. (For more on the downdraft see our post Remodeling 101: Nearly Invisible Downdraft Kitchen Vents.) Above: The Gaggenau 400 Series Retractable Downdraft Vent comes…

The Last-Minute Host: 10 Tips for Setting the Holiday Table, from Tricia Rose

It’s a well-known fact on the Remodelista editorial team: Tricia Rose of Rough Linen is our authority on relaxed-but-refined style. She’s never steered us wrong in tips for making up the guest room (leave towels in the bedroom and bath, to avoid dashes down the hallway), creating a romantic bedroom (don’t go overboard with scent), and making a beautiful bed (forget the fitted sheet). Now, with Thanksgiving—and the holidays—ahead, we asked Tricia for her tips for setting a casual, fuss-free table. Our only requirement: tips easy enough to pull off at the last minute with what you have around the house,…


An Arts and Crafts Icon Reborn in the Catskills by Jersey Ice Cream Co.

As owners of Hayfield, one of the Catskills’ most stylish wedding venues, Christiana Mavromatis and Scott Arnold know a thing or two about love. So when the couple first laid eyes on Minwawa, a grand Arts and Crafts home in Tannersville, NY, they knew it was a perfect match made in heaven. Not only was the couple attracted to the stunning views overlooking a mountain valley in Catskill State Park, they were also drawn in by the home’s sense of history, which was palpable in every nook and cranny. Designed by Canadian painter and architect George A. Reid, the house…


Steal This Look: The Instant Cocktail Party Kit

Last year, while working on our latest book, Remodelista: The Organized Home: Simple, Stylish Ideas for All Over the House, we became obsessed with kits. Travel kits, tool kits, spice kits, kitchen wrap kits, clothes care kits, cleaning kits. Show me an empty drawer and I’ll show you how to create a neatly organized group of complementary objects that will prevent you from ever asking yourself: “Where did I put that thing again?” One of our favorite kits for the kitchen is the Instant Cocktail Kit. It’s arguably the most fun to assemble, and, not surprisingly, to use. Our theory is this:…
