Philippe Starck’s famous Louis Ghost chairs for Kartell flank Jim Sullivan’s custom dining table, which features a slotted top exposing the wood’s craggy edge.
It was tan and dusty blue – with an orange-brick “accent wall” – and sure, I figured, I could paint it…but it’d still look like what it was: a more or less personality-free ranch house built in 1969.

Garage Door Accents: Having grown up in New York City, I was unaware that garage doors were a thing that one could like or dislike. I learned this because I looked at the cost of replacing our garage door with one with windows (or anything non-boring, really), and it was wayyyy outside my budget.

” Because on this house, details and flair are nowhere to be found.
