This week, the editors at Remodelista joined us (and, indeed, the rest of the Western World) in celebrating dads. Their angle: manly design. Believing every room benefits from a balance of yin and yang, we appreciate the male aesthetic.
Above: In The New Pioneers: An Architect’s One-Room Family House, read how Takaaki Kawabata turned a modest, mountain-view cabin in upstate New York into a one-room open-plan house for his family. You may be surprised to hear that those kids roll up their own futons every morning.
Above: A work table (that becomes a dining table) in the trendsetting kitchen of London chef Alastair Hendy. Credit Hendy with today’s use of stainless steel, concrete floors, and industrial lighting. And it still works. Read more in Revolution Road: A Ground-Breaking Kitchen in London.
Above: Julie may have uncovered the world’s most handsome kitchen utensils. Designed by Hagino Mitsunobu, they’re made of rustproof stainless steel with a black matte finish–and built to last. Find out where to get them in Kitchen Tools with a Masculine Edge.
Above: You might not expect an LA.actor to know his way around a tool belt. But Corbin Bernsen and his wife, the interior designer (and former actor) Amanda Pays, have been renovating and flipping houses for decades now. Learn some of Corbin’s remodeling tips in Ask the Expert: Corbin Bernsen, Star Handyman.
And that’s only a small part of Remodelista’s Cool Dads posts for this week. Find out more here.
