This week the Remodelista editors went behind the scenes to visit a “Girls” director’s Upper East Side kitchen and a carriage house on the coast of Maui. Join them (and keep cool with the stylish tabletop fans that Julie discovered en route):
Above: For our Kitchen of the Week post, Alexa visits Tricia Brock, a director for HBO shows such as Girls, Breaking Bad, and Silicon Valley, in her remodeled Upper East Side kitchen, transformed from a dark space that “had a schizophrenic feel,” according to her architects, Andrés Ulises Cortés and Sarrah Khan of Agencie. Above: Quality air flow makes a tiny cubicle or home office bearable at the height of summer; Julie rounds up stylish table and desk fans (both retro and modern) in this week’s 10 Easy Pieces post. Above: Annie vacations vicariously in a Hawaiian carriage house, recently transformed from a 1940s-era garage into a charm-filled getaway in this week’s House Tour post. Above: Our 11 Favorite Summer Beach Towels are often big enough to share with friends, or even to use as bedspreads or wall hangings,” says Justine. Why settle for less?
