Blue Streak: An Inventive, Postage Stamp-Sized Flat in the Center of Paris

French interior designer Marianne Evennou has a knack for color. Even for those of us on the Remodelista team for whom grey feels like a bold choice, Evennou has a way of making color look effortless: pairing rusts with pale greens, layering rooms in many shades of the same hue, using vibrant blues like others would a neutral. “Colors for me are like musical notes—they’re all good; you just have to adjust them to make a nice melody,” Evennou told Margot in our piece Home at the Office: Designer Marianne Evennou’s Paris Work Quarters and Pied-à-Terre. As it turns out, Evennou has…


1900s Victorian in Ohio | Save This Old House

Price: $2,777Location: Toledo, OHContact: Judy Stone, 419-241-1717The History: By the turn of the 20th century, the Old West End section of Toledo was growing rapidly, as the city known as the Glass Capital of the World attracted a wave of newcomers.

What a Difference a Garage Door Makes

What a Difference a Garage Door Makes 3 × Convincing Craftsman Convincing Craftsman Photo courtesy of CLOPAY To get the same look with less maintenance, consider wood-look garage doors. They appear authentic because the steel door has a stained woodgrain paint finish topped with overlays molded from actual wood pieces to reproduce the texture and grain pattern they emulate. These garage doors come in several factory-finished stain colors to complement other stained exterior woodwork. Walnut is shown in the above photo; you can choose from Medium, Dark, or Slate. Many Clopay® garage doors feature the insulation benefits of Intellicore®, a proprietary…


A Two-Week, $1,000, 500-Square-Foot Rental Overhaul by a Design Student in Bushwick, Brooklyn

This just in: what might be the most ingenious, scrappy rental renovation we’ve seen. It came in from Kristina Line, a 25-year-old Norway native studying art and architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (she’s taking her exams this spring) and her partner, Anton Bak, from Copenhagen, a spatial designer at the Royal Danish Academy (who also works at cabin start-up Klein). The pair put their studies to the test when Line landed a coveted internship with Danish designer Søren Rose Studio in New York City but found that her loft apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn—in a former textile factory—lacked…
