NY Design Links: Brownstone, Tool Shopping and Upper West Side Remodel
Interior By Another Look Interior Design, serving Manhattan and Brooklyn
Apartment Therapy's got a great house tour in a Clinton Hill, Brooklyn brownstone with nice bones. The furniture chosen to decorate the home is low and simple, giving the eye a chance to take in all of the features and curves of the building itself.
In New York Spaces magazine, designer Vicente Wolf shows off a transformational interior design project on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The pre-war apartment had some natural flaws, such as rooms that were small and dark and a complicated entryway. Wolf gave the the apartment a makeover and included an old-meets-news aesthetic with well-chosen colors and sculpture.
The New York Times goes shopping for tools and hardware with Canadian actress and do-it-yourself TV host Mag Ruffman. Ruffman also runs Toolgirl.com and is said to have a massive collection of hammers! Here, she picks a Komelon tape measure, a pair of Irwin Vise-Grip pliers and a Mintcraft 11-piece ratchet screwdriver set. Here's the interactive gallery to see her tool picks.
