Home & Style

Play House

Fashion designer Carina Schott and her husband, figurative painter Karim Hamid, transformed their mid-century Matunuck compound with a deft edit, keeping it fresh and fun.

Ranch Dressing

Long gone are the days when this house never turned a head. An artful husband and wife team have given the outdated ranch a brand-new perspective: light, space and plenty of twenty-first-century personality.

Net Results

Relax on the porch? Not if bugs are buzzing in your ears and nibbling at your ankles. Today’s smartest homeowners are revisiting the screen porch as a savvy solution that increases living space and maximizes nature’s sweetest season.

Shifting Gears

A rundown garage undergoes a traffic-stopping transformation. In its new life it’s a chic cottage characterized by an enviable open floor plan and modern aesthetic.

Homework Solutions

Beautifully rehabbed mill buildings in Providence and Pawtucket now double as dazzling work-live spaces. No commute, and nests that nurture and inspire—what more could uber-creative artists want?

Dirty Business

Yesterday it seemed the most trafficked rooms in the house were also the most neglected. No more. Utility rooms have become chic and central to an orderly life.

Vintage Rooms

Cellaring your wine with some help from the pros.

Designer Genes

They share looks, but what about taste? We visited mother and daughter designers at home to determine how alike—or not—their decorating style really is.

Kids’ Play

Gone are the country decals of long ago, the fussy wallpapers that screamed nursery. Today’s best children’s rooms are positively posh and ultimately livable.
