Kendall Jenner’s LA home appears on the cover of Architectural Digest this month, and it brings several surprises, as well as serious food for thought in terms of design. First, it’s just not very Kardashian. Where’s the pristine all-white living room, the lashings of marble, the blinging chandeliers?

While Kim and Kanye went for an Axel Vervoodt-designed minimalist masterpiece (a thing of beauty, but one it’s hard to imagine anyone actually living in), Jenner and her designers, Kathleen and Tommy Clements and Waldo Fernandez, have enhanced what she calls “the

Explore an Art-Filled Connecticut Family Home That Balances Comfort and Sophistication

As the quintessential country retreat for some of the 20th century’s most affluent families—with surnames like Rockefeller, Gimbel, and Post—the tony Connecticut town of Greenwich is littered with sprawling estates that wear their traditional aesthetic like a badge of honor. But in their 22,000-square-foot home, one West Coast family of five decided to shake off the dust of the old and infuse the house’s iconic structure with a dose of contemporary vigor.

Inside Supermodel Kendall Jenner’s Tranquil Los Angeles Home

I think we were all thrilled to discover that she has taste beyond her years,” adds Kathleen. Fernandez punctuates the sentiment:

This couple was fed up with expensive rent, so they turned an old school bus into a home

Starla Sullivan, 29, and her husband Brian were housesitting when the inspiration for a nontraditional abode came about. 

The couple was staying temporarily at an expansive, cookie-cutter house owned by Sullivan’s mom who was away on vacation. It looked like every other home on the block with a manicured lawn. It was the classic American dream home, Sullivan said. 

“Staying there helped me realize I didn’t want one of those big, ticky tacky, they-all-look-just-the-same houses,” Sullivan said. “To me, it was just big, dark, lonely and sad.”

While housesitting, the couple cozied up in front of a fire and watched

Comic-Con 2020 ‘At Home’ Saturday Schedule

To use the words of prophet and frequent convention attendee Hunter S. Thompson, when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. This year, the professional weirdness of Comic-Con has taken a twist, as the four-day event will take place exclusively online.

To their credit, organizers are trying to replicate the commercialized fan-friendly confines of the San Diego Convention Center as much as possible: there is the traditional souvenir book featuring a pretty sweet drawing of Ray Bradbury on a T. Rex on the cover that is available for free .pdf download (and featuring click-through advertisements!), and you can print … Read more
