Before & After: Sherry and John’s Sweet Hangout

before, after, makeover, porch

I’ve mentioned before how much I love rooms that feel like they’re an extension of the landscape, and today I found one that I am pretty excited about. I used to follow Young House Love back when Sherry and John were remodeling their first house, and I couldn’t wait to do that kind of stuff to my own house. Well, I kind of fell off the DIY weekend warrior bandwagon when I realized that I work on the weekends and when I do have a weekend off, it seems that I’m more of a weekend wanderer than a weekend warrior. But anyway back to the space…here is where they are with it now:

They ripped out the windows and ceiling and did a few other things as well, turning it into one huge lounge space. It looks like it would be a pretty great house to have a party at, don’t you think? I’m really digging it so far, and I love their vision behind this. Of course, it’s still a work in progress, but I think it already looks awesome as-is. Nice work, as usual, Sherry and John! -erin

If you have a great before & after that you’d love to share with the Studio ‘g’ community, send us a few photos and a brief story!

Modern Sustainable Roses

Modern Sustainable Roses

In 2008 the state of New York imposed new regulations on all government-owned properties – no longer would pesticide usage be allowed.  Peter Kukielski, the rosarian-curator of the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden at the New York Botanical Garden, had to find new ways to keep more than 650 rose varieties pest free. Pat Leuchtman interviewed Peter…

Addressing Concerns – Thistle & Fig

Addressing Concerns – Thistle & Fig

It was with overwhelming excitement on my part that I chose to include the first installment of Thistle & Fig – a cartoon series created by Alice Marcus Krieg and Carmen Devito and illustrated by Gideon Kendall, in the spring 2015 issue of PITH + VIGOR. But this decision has not gone unquestioned and I…

The Nearly Done Office (with the help of a Modernica planter)

Slowly but surely my new office is taking shape. The hardest part for me is always the finishing touches. I still need to find, load-up and style the bookshelves, sort through a pile of paper that needs to be filed in my less than adequate system (dread!!), recover the sofa, and hang some more pictures. I…
