    Rising Designer Sophie Ashby Transforms a Georgian-Era Home in London for her Young Family

    Just a few strides from the bustle of Brick Lane in London’s East End—where the sweet, spicy scent of the street’s famous Bangladeshi curry houses fills the air—hides a gorgeous Georgian-era gem of a house that British interior designer Sophie Ashby and her husband, fashion designer Charlie Casely-Hayford, currently share with their daughter, Gaia, born last May, and Casely-Hayford’s seven-year-old daughter Rainbow when she comes to stay on weekends. Having outgrown their one-bedroom apartment in West London, the family rented this place in February 2020, just weeks before the world went into lockdown. “We could have bought a house, but I knew it wouldn’t have been one I was happy…

    Dr. Lori: Decorate your home with cherished family heirlooms, scrapbooks [antiques column] | Antiques

    January is the time of the year when home goods are featured for shoppers in stores and online. Why not use your cherished family heirlooms when you decorate or redecorate your home?

    Color and Charm Define The Hamptons Family Home Crafted by AD100 Designer Rayman Boozer

    A residential concept for retail space may not seem like a new idea today as mega-brands settle into domiciles worldwide. But when AD100 inductee Rayman Boozer first opened his beloved Manhattan boutique, Apartment 48, in 1994, his approach was groundbreaking. Tucked on the garden level of a town house at 48 West 17th Street, the shop unfolded in a warren of rooms, with every corner (kitchen, bath, bed) outfitted as if inhabited. For Boozer, who had studied interior design at Indiana University before moving to New York to work for the likes of Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdale’s, Apartment 48 was more than a chance to push products. It was…

Colorful furnishings pop against the tongue-and-groove planked wall that the homeowners installed themselves. The decor is durable, affordable, functional, and comfortable. “The room needs to span the ages,” Barber says. “They are adding a baby to the mix and grandparents visit often.” 1 Throw pillows in peach, rose, and turquoise…
