Edinburgh Bolthole: A Stylish One-Room Vacation Apartment Converted from a Garage

Located in Edinburgh’s Old Town, the rustic stone building originally served as a blacksmith’s shop with a holding pen for horses and carriages on the ground floor. Three centuries later, a young creative couple happened upon the real estate listing for the lower story. Eilidh Izat, 29, is an architect and her boyfriend Jack Arundell, 28, a chef; they were looking for a property to develop outside the city but jumped at the oddball garage. Thanks to modern glazing, slatted wood dividers, and custom furnishings all made from a single oak tree, they transformed the 387-square-foot interior into one of the…

1940s Cottage Remodel Fit for a Growing Family

“Hands-on” included installing the addition’s kid-friendly cork floor, creating baseboards with subtly rounded trim, laying thresholds, cutting down doors, and doing the jambs, casings, and hinge prep. The 1940s house gave him a hard time. “They weren’t that precise back then, which drove me insane,” he says of trying to devise a consistent width for new window casings, which he crafted by ripping down trim—“and that took time.” Shelley bird-dogged the carpentry elsewhere. “I was impressed by her design of the new casework, the cabinets, and built-ins,” Joe says of his energetic young wife. “She would tweak things, like the…

But what if memories aren’t enough? To be safe, the owner of this one-bedroom apartment in Warsaw decided to bring the glamour and drama of classic French interiors with him when he relocated…
