Object of Desire: Artful (and Affordable) Pre-Distressed Flatware

I’m told that someday I’ll inherit my parents’ wedding silver, with small Qs etched into the handles, which we take out of my grandmother’s Welsh cupboard on special occasions and which shows the wear of so many years of gatherings. Until then, I’m admiring this artfully pre-distressed flatware, to get the look of time-worn silver without having to wait for time to pass. It’s made by Italian company KnIndustrie and available via The Loft; with pieces ranging from €3.30 to €21 for larger pieces, it’s affordable enough for everyday use. Take a look.

A Renovated Farmhouse in Bedford, NY, with Scandinavian Influences

In Bedford, New York, architect Rafe Churchill transforms a small farmhouse, owned by the same family for 30 years, into a modern weekend house with a subtle dash of Scandinaivan style. Over the years, parts of the house had been renovated to accommodate short-term needs, while others had been ignored, so the “interiors showed an evolved history,” Churchill says. He modernized the home by raising ceiling heights and creating an open floor plan, and worked closely with interior designer Kathryn Fagin of KJ Designs in Boston to furnish the home. What began as a traditional farmhouse vibe shifted over time toward “a mix of farmhouse with…

Before & After: A Bright 17th-Century House Overlooking the Sea on Mallorca, for Two Young Architects

One of the more original projects we’ve seen in a while, with the windows thrown open to let in summer breezes (and a fresh dose of design): Ca’n Rei on Mallorca, a 17th-century house far from the party scene and spring break resorts in the tiny town of Banyalbufar, on a cliff overlooking the sea, redone by Isla Architects. The house is the architects’ own: Juan Palencia and Marta Colón, the couple behind the firm, recently moved to Mallorca full-time to establish their practice after living and working in the colder climes of Basel, Switzerland. First, they stripped the house down…

Kitchen of the Week: Stardust in Northwest London

What happens when two friends from the music industry try their hand at interior design? If this northwest London kitchen is anything to go by, they come at it with personality and flair. Toni Halliday, lead vocalist and lyricist for alternative rock group Curve, initially hired former music friend turned interior designer Rachel Aspland of RZ Living to help with refurbishing her home in the London neighborhood of Queens Park. A few years later, the pair decided to collaborate and design Aspland’s Victorian terraced house in neighboring Kensal Rise. Anything but timid and understated, the kitchen is an unusual mix…
