Fine Dine-ing

Interior and furniture designer Nick Dine—son of pop artist Jim Dine—has a love-hate relationship with his 2,000-square-foot Hudson Square condo loft. A long rectangle, it was born a stable. The floor slants from east to west, and natural light flows in only at the extreme ends. Yet it’s still home for Dine, his wife, Vanessa, and daughters Violet, 11, and Josephine, 10. With help from Think Construction, Dine reworked the space in 2002. By embracing the loft’s quirks, he has transformed what was once a wreck into a source of inspiration. He gives us the nickel tour.

Glazed Old Fashioned

On a shady street just off the main drag of Melbourne, Australia’s hippest inner suburb, a pair of creative types and their two kids have made a bright, cheery home by renovating an 1860s stable, oddly named “Villa Boston.”

Coast Docs

Law professor Carole Goldberg and sociology professor Duane Champagne both teach at the University of California, Los Angeles. Both have a love of books and cooking, and since marrying in 2003, they now share six kids and eight grandchildren as well. To design the couple’s green, familycentric beach getaway in Oxnard, California, architectural designer Daniel Garness—–who has offices in Los Angeles and New Orleans—–had a lot more to consider than how high to make the twin sinks. Goldberg tells us why the couple’s home is very nearly its castle.

Britain's Mid-Century Female Designers

Of the iconic women designers working in the mid-20th century, the two most often recognized—and adored—are Ray Eames and Lucienne Day (the female halves of two of the best-known creative couples of the era). While Eames won our hearts with her inventive furniture designs, Day brought modernism to the masses via her woven textile designs. On Saturday, May 15, the Textile Museum in Washington, DC, opens a new exhibit featuring the work of Day and two other mid-century British designers—Marian Mahler and Jacqueline Groad—titled Art by the Yard: Women Design Mid-Century Britain. The show is on display through September 12 and here we present a slideshow of 20 textiles from the exhibition.

Echo Chamber

After architectural designers Louis Molina and Laurent Turin of Good Idea Studio revamped a tiny, dilapidated 1923 clapboard house in 2004, they moved their Los Angeles office into the ground level and have taken turns occupying the 578-square-foot living quarters upstairs. While Turin is supervising the firm’s office in his native Switzerland, Molina, who also teaches at the Woodbury University School of Architecture in Burbank, gives us the tour of their diminutive-by-design Echo Park remodel.
