Workshop/APD and April Bovet Interior Design Team Up on a Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Gem

Each of the five boroughs contains a constellation of neighborhoods with their own cultural quirks and pervading personalities. In Cobble Hill, ethnically diverse mom-and-pop shops and traditional brownstones entwine with a boho art scene, yielding an old-school yet forward-thinking Brooklyn vibe. It’s here that Workshop/APD founding principal Andrew Kotchen was given the opportunity to nestle a unique piece of architecture between two 1900s town houses, at once putting into relief the district’s dual natures.

“It’s rare to get the chance to run an intelligent design process that isn’t based in historical preservation,” Kotchen says of the ground-up plan he conceived for his client, a married couple with two teenage children. After performing initial zoning

Interior Design brings color to the Parade of Homes | Real Estate

The Housing and Building Association’s Parade of Homes started this weekend and continues today and next weekend, with eight homes that are available for online touring, and seven homes that are available for in-person visits. With the popularity of home remodeling shows from areas across the country, it’s easy to stay on top of home interior styles elsewhere, but the Parade is a great opportunity to see the styles that locals love.

The experts say that the Grand Valley is typically a few years behind the rest of the country when it comes to home interior design choices, but one thing is consistent with local design preferences regardless of whether a home was designed in Tuscan style back in 2006 or in modern farmhouse in 2020: rustic never quite goes away, and it’s not uncommon to see the outside brought inside with textures, colors and materials during the Parade of

How 400-year-old Delft tiles became an interior design sensation

What is the item all the young, new-wave interior designers are trying to get their hands on at the moment? Not a limited-edition chair from Milan or a sculptural chandelier, but 400-year-old, hand-painted tiles hailing from the small Dutch city of Delft.

Delft tiles were first produced in the Dutch Golden Age as a response to Chinese blue-and-white glazed porcelain, and have since become instantly recognisable throughout the world for their cobalt blue and white-grey colour. They’ve been exported, replicated and collected by keen-eyed connoisseurs ever since production largely ceased in the 18th century, when cheaper British reproductions put Dutch potters out of business.

Recently, a new generation of makers have been turning their hand to the antiquated craft, with Instagram-savvy crafts people and young interior designers drawn to the pictorial designs.

Authentic antique tiles are identifiable by their greyish-white tin-lead glaze (which was found to be toxic for potters

Defining home with interior design consultant Anjel Herman. | Step Inside

“I wanted us to come home to simplicity and peace, a place that is both elegant and timeless,” she says.

For a couple who loves to entertain and socialize, living in a small, gated community of close-knit neighbors, the kitchen naturally became a focal point of a phased remodel that includes a Step Inside first: a baby grand piano in the kitchen for anyone whose appetite includes a little Elton John with their wine.

“It is the epicenter of every party,” Herman says. “No matter how many guests attend our soirees, they all seem to hover around that island.”

With that in mind, the design consultant removed the much smaller two-tiered island and its large built-in awning and replaced it with the simple but ample, front-and-center serving island you see today.

“The kitchen is light and airy now,” Herman says. “I love the beautiful quartzite countertops and backsplash.”
