Trending on Remodelista: How to Achieve Casual Elegance in Your Home

January 17, 2020

Some great tips this week from the Remodelista editors on how to achieve elegance in your home without sacrificing comfort.

1. Aim for artfulness over fussiness.

2. Go monochrome.

3. Scale down.

When glamour resides in a tiny footprint, it feels much more approachable. For proof, see Narrow Escape: Thoughtful Storage and Design in an Architect’s Small Home. Photograph by Tom Ferguson, courtesy of Porebski Architects.
