Before & After: A “Not Too Brooklyn” Bachelor Pad in Park Slope, Transformed with Paint

Dan Mazzarini of BHDM Design was given a mandate when it came to a dated apartment in Park Slope, Brooklyn: create a sophisticated and polished masculine retreat that was “not too Brooklyn” for the apartment’s bachelor owner, a book-loving lawyer with little time to fret about the details.

Remodelista Essentials: 25 Inexpensive, Good-Looking Design Finds from the Hardware Store

Consider this our ode to the humble hardware store, the affordable emporium of just about anything you need (and several things you didn’t know you needed). The wares in a hardware store epitomize beauty in function: these are practical workhorses, often designs that haven’t changed in decades (or even centuries); they’re built to last, sometimes multi-purpose—and many of them are surprisingly good-looking. And there’s something old-world about wandering the aisles of the iconic hardware store, with its dusty, jam-packed shelves, and third-generation shopkeepers who can tackle any question you throw at at them. (We’re advocates of the local mom-and-pop hardware store—I’ve…


Beneath the Surface: A Petite Manhattan Apartment with a Surprising Amount of Storage (and Small-Space Tricks)

The secret to this petite Manhattan apartment? Its inventive hidden storage—so well-hidden, in fact, that I didn’t notice it at first glance. When two Israeli-born architects, Noam Dvir and Daniel Rauchwerger of BoND, acquired the circa-1910, 520-square-foot apartment in the city’s West Chelsea neighborhood, it was laid out like a typical, cramped New York flat, with a railroad layout and a walled-off kitchen and bathroom in the center of the space that didn’t get any light. The duo transformed the apartment by realigning the kitchen and bathroom along one wall, then added high/low design elements: custom marble, tall glass partition…
