    Inside a Southampton Home That’s Idyllic Year-Round | Architectural Digest

    When summer starts receding, the string of picturesque seaside communities that make up the Hamptons on Long Island’s South Fork traditionally begin retreating to their small-town roots. The cooler and calmer months of fall bring with them a slower pace. That shift in tone certainly won’t defer Mimi Ritzen Crawford from the manicured two-acre property she owns with her husband in Southampton, New York. Though the vestiges of summer abound at her 8,000-square-foot residence—a heated gunite pool and grass tennis court sit on a plot just half a mile from one of the most private stretches of beach in the Hamptons—Ritzen Crawford isn’t abandoning her bountiful amenities when the weather…

    4 Budget-Friendly Bathroom Remodel Ideas From TikTok | Architectural Digest

    On TikTok, the #bathroommakeover hashtag has over 1 billion views. Scroll through the videos and two things become apparent. First, be it a subtle refresh or a complete overhaul, TikTok creators have so many clever bathroom remodel ideas. Second, while some creativity may be necessary, breaking the bank is not. “For many homeowners, myself included, a full-on renovation isn’t always feasible,” says Phoenix-based content creator Lidia Salazar, who goes by @everyday_homedecor. Salazar recommends mini makeovers, which she says are ”a fantastic way of making the best with what we have.” Julian Thomas, of Brooklyn, known on TikTok as @marfastewart, echoes that sentiment. “Let’s be frank: Bathroom updates can be pricey.”…

    Tour an Austin, Texas, Home Where Stunning Modernism Meets Traditional Design | Architectural Digest

    It can be said that a historic house is only as good as its bones, but oftentimes, it takes a little digging to find them. Such was the case for Carrie and Robert Hicks, who found their dream home in the form of a Tudor-inspired house built in 1926 in one of Austin’s oldest neighborhoods. “We first fell in love with the location and the great big front yard. It was just a really wonderful space,” recalls Carrie, an interior designer who cut her teeth in New York and West Hollywood before settling down in Texas. The house had been through many hands in the nearly hundred years before the…

    Inside a Celebrity Stylist’s Country Retreat in Westchester, New York | Architectural Digest

    When Leslie Fremar walked into her 18th-century Katonah, New York, farmhouse for the first time, “I just knew that it was meant to be mine,” she says. Fremar is a powerhouse fashion stylist who counts Charlize Theron, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Connelly, Nicola Peltz, and more A-listers among her clients. Fittingly, this home was in desperate need of a makeover. “It was kind of a disaster, but I fell in love with it. It just had good vibes.” After asking Moore—a design aficionado whose own self-decorated New York City town house graced the November 2017 cover of AD—to help her determine the direction for her Tribeca loft, Fremar decided to go…

    Tour a Brutalist Home in Milan With Ties to Ettore Sottsass | Architectural Digest

    Buzzing up to architect Luca Cipelletti’s latest residential project in Milan, it’s impossible not to notice two other names on the door: Nathalie Du Pasquier and George Snowden. The designers (who happen to be husband and wife) were founding members of the 1980s radical design movement, the Memphis Group. And when Cipelletti first set foot in the Porta Nuova building’s windowless, L-shaped attic space, which he’d had been hired to make more habitable, the door was labeled with the names of the movement’s founding father, Ettore Sottsass, and cofounder Marco Zanini. “They were the first radicals,” Cipelletti says of the group, known for their irreverent use of zany shapes and…

    In Minneapolis’s historical East Isles neighborhood, there’s one item getting passed around more often than a casserole dish: a burly and solid wood upright piano incapable of holding a fine tune. After being decommissioned from a restaurant in nearby Kenwood years ago, the antique piece—decorated with hand-carved motifs, no less—has been carefully transferred from household to household. “It’s a terrible piano, but I loved the fact that it’s a neighborhood fixture,” says its current owner, interior designer Victoria Sass, who proudly displays the instrument in her home studio. “Someday maybe I’ll move and pass it on to another neighbor.” Until then the piece remains in a house that—much like the…
