Just In: TRADHhome Early Spring 2014

The digital edition of Traditional Home, called TRADhome came out last week. This is an online only version of the magazinef that features less established and up-and-coming designers. In 2012’s TRADhome, I wrote about a home designed by Palmer Weiss—my blog post here—and in the 2013 “Great Kitchens” edition, I wrote about designer Liz Caan’s color-filled dining room, blogged here.

TRADhome 2014 extensively showcases homes designed by these four designers: Tamara Kaye-Honey, Charles de Lisle, and Joe Lucas and Parrish Chilcoat of Lucas Studio, and Taylor Borsari. The theme is color, and as you’ll see, there’s plenty of it.

Montage: 23 Beach House Bunk Rooms

I’ve done a couple of bunk bed montages, and just recently built-in alcove beds, but today’s entire post is dedicated specifically to bunk rooms. Most often, kids bedrooms with multiple built-in bunk beds. They tend to be done in summer houses in nautical styles, though not all of them. The very simple Scandinavian ones are lovely. I like the idea, and the design of these quad bunks, but I’m not really into having four or more kids sleep over; two boys are enough!

Just In: New Trad Designers 2013, Part I

Last year Traditional Home asked bloggers to submit their picks for its its list of up-and-coming New Trad designers. I submitted a gorgeous home decorated by Palmer Weiss in San Francisco, and she won a coveted spot in the 2012 TRADHome New Designers lineup. (This year they called on bloggers to submit  for its  Great Kitchens digital mag, and the Boston area designer I suggested, Liz Caan, scored a spot with her color-saturated dining room.)

As for the this year’s up-and-comers, that 2013 TRADHome digital issue came out this spring. The 10 New Trad Designers 2013 are incredible. The work ranges from thoughtfully serene to energetically colorful. It was hard to narrow down the images, so in order to show a few from each, I am splitting it into two parts. Today I’m featuring the work of interior designers Andrew Maier, Julie Goldman of J. Latter DesignKatie Lydon, Kristin Rocke of K. Rocke Design, and Taylor Borsari.

I’ve worked with Katie Lydon before, but the others are new to me. I’m psyched to have already had a chance to collaborate with Julie Goldman on an upcoming Matouk blog post. I’m hoping I’ll have a chance to work with the others soon too. Here is a sampling of the work of the first half of the New Trad Designers 2013.

Design Diary: Liz Caan’s Dining Room

Last year I was lucky enough to write about a San Francisco home decorated by Palmer Weiss for the TRADHome “New Traditionalists” digital edition. This year the call was for kitchens and dining rooms for Traditional Home’s “Great Kitchens” digital mag. I submitted  the dining room of Newton, MA-based designer Liz Caan, and she won. The issue went live last month; I apologize for the delay. As you’ll see, it was worth the wait. Here are the images, photographed by the ever amazing Eric Roth, but be sure to click through to the digital mag too, for the full story, “An Appetite for Color;” starting on page 58. The  menu and invitation is by IOMOI. I’ll add credits for the gorgeous furnishings and tabletop pieces later today. My son is graduating from elementary school in an hour! Enjoy the photos. Update: Credits and links for Liz’s fabulous wares are now in place.
