In the Atelier St. George showroom in Vancouver, the walls are intentionally crumbling.
Typically, the texture is sprayed on; sometimes patterns are added, either with a soft brush or an implement like a comb, rag, or sponge. And the textures and patterns have names: For example, there’s Santa Fe (for an adobe look), “orange peel,” “knockdown,” “swirl,” and “cat’s paw.” It’s also possible to apply ready-made texture paint using a brush or roller. Textured interior walls have a practical function, since the texture hides the signs of drywall installation and other imperfections.

Nick Gavin is a child of the once-gritty neighborhood of SoHo: “I grew up in the 1980s/90s in a loft at the corner of West Broadway and Houston; my mother ran a nonprofit, and my father was an art dealer. We frequented Fanelli Cafe and Jerry’s Cafe. My first date with my now-wife Katrin Thormann […]
Carriage 1 came with original wood paneling and flooring “bearing the scars of its history.”
The kitchen is set in an addition in the back – the red painted boards are the exterior of the carriage. John and Jo made the counters from workbenches rescued from a school lab. All of the added elements, such as the windows and front door, are reused goods from John’s reclamation yard. The rooms are heated with a wood-burning stove and vintage cast-iron radiators.

A Minimalist Tropical Apartment for an Art Collector in São Paulo, Brazil
When Brazilian architect and designer Felipe Hess renovated a 4,800-square-foot apartment for a young art collector, he let the client’s antique Brazilian furniture and artwork dictate the space.

The rattan floor seats were made in Nagaoka, in Niigata prefecture. An Akari lampshade hangs above.
The doma, an indoor-outdoor space, is in traditional Japanese homes. I like older architecture, which drives my imagination to wonder why these buildings were made in such ways. Once these traditional houses were just ordinary dwellings, but today they require the skill of a specialist craftsman. It’s hard and expensive to find people who are able to do repairs on the houses now – it’s a skill that is being lost in Japan”
We were offered a sneak peek and found ourselves poring over Ryo Kashiwazaki’s weekend home.
“The house is 130 years old and was originally built with a thatched roof. It was changed when the former owners renovated it 20 years ago. They invited a first-class carpenter from Fukushima prefecture to live here and repair this house during the winter. The exterior remains the same as it was. When I moved in I cleaned up the interior a little, and replaced the heating and air conditioning.”
Enrique Arellano and Libia Moreno keep shop in Mexico City’s Colonia Juárez in a big location.
Mexicano Utilitario is an archive of simple, useful wares many of which Enrique and Libia classify as “objects in danger of extinction.” They continue to buy from local markets – La Merced and Jamaica are their Mexico City favorites – and they’ve also begun working with local factories directly. The space had been half demolished and “dark in all senses,” says Libia. Exhumed metal castoffs are now used for display: “recycling became an organic part of the project.”
