    Sausalito, California, tile company Clé has added a notable new name to its collection of artist-designed tiles: the Glasgow design studio Timorous Beasties, best known for its gently subversive wallpaper and textiles. Clé founder Deborah Osburn discovered the work of Paul Simmons and Alistair McAuley, creators of Timorous Beasties, several years ago and was “captivated by these masters of the decorative motif and their irreverently elegant revisions of classic Victorian designs."

    Osborn invited the studio to collaborate, and the result is the Rorschach Tile Collection, which integrates classic damask motifs with Rorschach test imagery (think ink blots). Psychedelics for the 21st century? According to Simmons, "These tile patterns are a reversal of the expected: Blotches, splats, and drips are normally regarded as disordered accidents. By recontextualizing the damask and using it as a vehicle to carry Rorschach-esque symmetrical imagery, we've created beauty out of something conventionally repellent. In fact, by interrogating assumptions about pattern this way, we discover a new aesthetic." What do you think?

    Dancing flames and crackling wood are warming to the body and soul. But looks can be deceiving. Wood-burning fireplaces can actually lose more heat than they generate. Then there are air-quality concerns and maintenance issues to consider. Purists moan about the antiseptic nature of gas fireplaces. Are they truly soulless? Or is it time to consider making a switch? Here are six issues to consider. 

    Note: This feature focuses on traditional, open, wood-burning fireplaces, not their newer, closed, high-efficiency cousins. Stay tuned for more on high-efficiency wood-burning fireplaces, the different varieties of gas fireplaces, and how you can retrofit an existing fireplace.

    1. The Sensory Experience

    Wood-burning fireplaces win in the character category: They offer the snap, crackle, and pop (and the possibility of roasting a marshmallow over the flames) that gas-fueled fires can't match.

    That said, advances in gas fireplaces are putting their characterless reputation to rest. Flames have become more realistic (some even offer variable height adjustment), and ceramic logs better resemble the real thing. All that's missing is the sound and smell (wait long enough and there may be an app for that).

    Ceramic Gas Logs, Remodelista

    Made of ceramic or refractory cement, gas logs come in a variety of lifelike wood styles, complete with glowing embers. Here are two examples in ceramics. Above L: A set from US specialist Monessen Hearth. Above R: Metalfire logs from Belgium. 

    O'neill Rose West Side Townhouse Fireplace, Remodelista

    Above: Is it the mantle rather than the fire that steals the show?

    2. Heating Efficiency

    Great at creating ambiance, traditional wood-burning fireplaces are poor performers: When it comes to heating, they get only about a 15 percent efficiency rating. Wood fires do get very hot—upwards of 1,100 degrees Fahrenheit—but most of that heat disappears up the chimney. To make matters worse, as the hot air rises, it creates a draft that pulls warm air from other parts of the house up the chimney with it. 

    With energy-efficiency ratings between 75 and 99 percent, depending on the type of appliance used, gas fireplaces are the winner in the heating category. They come in three types: log sets that sit in existing open fireplaces, inserts that can be installed in most masonry fireplaces, and complete new built-in fireplaces. Inserts and built-in gas fireplaces are the best heat producers, filling rooms with a mix of warm air and radiant heat. 

    Metalfire Architectural Gas Fireplace, Remodelista

    3. Emissions

    Air quality is another consideration. Wood-burning fireplaces create particle pollution indoors and out. That woodsy smell can be a health and environmental hazard (as I write this we are in the third day of a "spare the air" burn ban in San Francisco). 

    EPA Heating Source Emissions, Remodelista

    Above: According to the EPA, traditional wood-burning fireplaces emit 28 pounds of particulants per MMBTU (one million BTUs) of heat output as opposed to natural gas, which produces up to 99 percent less (about 0.28 pounds per MMBTU). Simple math suggests that wood-burning fireplaces are 100 times more polluting than gas. Diagram courtesy of the US Environmental Protection Agency.

    4. Cleaning and Maintenance

    The soot and ash that are by-products of wood-burning fireplaces require frequent cleaning. 

    Wood Burning Fireplace Greenwich Hotel, Remodelista

    Above: Rooms, such as this Axel Vervoordt–Designed Greenwich Hotel Penthouse, with open wood-burning fireplaces are susceptible to soot being blown inside when air gusts come down the chimney. Also air flow to the wood, necessary for good burning, is restricted by soot buildup at the base of the fireplace. Photograph via The Greenwich Hotel.

    Wood-burning fireplaces bring the burden of chimney maintenance that gas fireplaces don't have. Burning wood creates creosote, which accumulates on the lining of the chimney and becomes a fire hazard. Chimneys should be checked annually and will need to be cleaned periodically to prevent this buildup. The EPA also recommends checking chimneys inside and out for cracks that can allow smoke to enter a house or expose the chimney’s components to high temperatures that may cause a fire.

    Gas fireplaces require little more than a dusting, a boon for the neatnik. They're not, however, maintenance free: It's recommended that gas fireplaces be cleaned and adjusted annually by a professional to ensure safe and efficient operation.

    Oomen Architecture Gas Fireplace, Remodelista

    Above: No cleaning tools are required for gas fireplaces, such as this white-clad design by Oomen Architecten.

    5. Convenience

    Gas fireplaces trump wood-burning fireplaces in ease of operation, starting with the fuel source: Wood has to be stored and is bulky and dirty; a cord is four-feet tall, four-feet deep, and eight-feet wide. Gas is fed through a pipe and no storage is required. That said, if you don't have natural gas in your area, propane is the alternative gas and it requires a bulky tank for storage.

    Fire-start with push-button ease if you have a gas fireplace—some even come with remotes (though, we admit, that seems a bit sterile). And they roar on until you turn them off. Wood-burning fireplaces, on the other hand, require wood stacking, lighting, and tending. A ritual that's part of the whole experience or a nuisance? You decide.

    6. Cost

    The cost of operating wood-burning and gas fireplaces is relatively low. A cord of wood is anywhere between $200 and $400, depending on your location and the type and condition of wood. Natural gas runs from $0.20 to $0.40 per hour for an average gas fireplace. Variations depend on the BTU rating of your burner. 

    Gas fireplaces can have a positive effect on overall heating costs by enabling you to turn down the central heating down and use the gas fireplace to heat a frequently used room. Zone heating also reduces the amount of money spent heating rooms that sit unused. Conversely, using central heat while burning wood in a fireplace can make your heater to work harder to maintain temperatures throughout the house.

    At our recent Remodelista Holiday Market in San Francisco, I was instantly drawn to French children's clothing line Les Petits Carreaux. The brand, founded by Stéphanie Ross and her Parisian friend and designer Alice Shamreiz, came about one sleepless night when Ross dreamed of a children’s line that reconciles style and comfort—clothing with French allure and a San Francisco spirit.

    "As a mother of a six-year-old boy, I am especially interested in children’s lifestyle trends," Ross says. So last year, frustrated with the children's clothing options in the US, Ross and her business partner Shamreiz launched the first collection of Les Petits Carreaux. 

    Ross had worked as an artistic and communications director in women’s, men’s, and children’s fashion in Paris for 15 years, but after meeting her American husband and giving birth to their son, she and her family relocated to the Bay Area. Before their move, the couple began a yearlong overhaul of their Parisian apartment in the Eighth Arrondissement, near la Madeleine and Champs-Élysées. 

    "We originally lived in one of the smaller apartments on the fourth floor. In 2010, our neighbors across the hall fortuitously asked if we would be interested in exchanging apartments. They were looking to downsize and we had a growing family, so the swap was a win-win," Ross says. "We were particularly thrilled to take over a larger unit that needed lots of TLC but that had all of its historical features intact: ornate moulded ceilings, wainscoting, stained glass in the entry hall, pointe d'hongrie hardwood floors [parquet flooring in a chevron pattern], fireplaces in the salon [living room], dining room, and bedrooms—a true rarity these days, as many Parisian apartments were modernized in the latter part of the 20th century, mainly by stripping out these features and reconfiguring interior spaces."

    Ross's goal was to maintain the flat's integrity by preserving the historical architectural features while accommodating a modern lifestyle by incorporating built-in closets in the bedrooms, installing a contemporary German-designed kitchen, enlarging and redesigning the bathroom with high-end Italian finishes, and creating a small home office. 

    Since moving to the US, the family tries to spend as much vacation time as possible in the flat, and when they are not in residence, they rent it out on a short-term, fully-furnished basis. Go to Homerental.fr to learn more.

    On a recent trip to London, I had breakfast at Nopi, star chef Yotam Ottolenghi's restaurant in Soho. He has three other cafe-delis dotted around the city, but this one, located north of Piccadilly (hence Nopi), is a proper restaurant. Designed by Israeli architect Alex Meitlis, the man responsible for all of Ottolenghi's projects, Nopi shares the pristine, all-white interiors of the other outposts, but is elevated by brass accents, including circles used as a recurring motif, from the restaurant's sign to its ingenious napkin holders. For the latter, Meitlis has taken a hardware store staple and transformed it into an elegant table accessory. Better still, the idea is easily—and cheaply—replicated at home.

    The Ludlow Hotel is the latest and largest in Sean MacPherson’s portfolio of boutique NYC properties, and an amalgamation of the lessons he's learned along the way: It has the brick walls and industrial windows of the Bowery Hotel, the compact guest rooms of the Maritime, the super sound system of the Jane, the Parisian sconces and brass bathroom fixtures of the Marlton. And the clubby atmosphere of all of the above. 

    What started as a standard concrete-slab high-rise on the Lower East Side has matured into a grand hotel via the layering of materials. Lots of them. Hallways got paneling, guest rooms received beams and wood flooring, and the lobby and its neighboring lounge and buzzing restaurant, Dirty French, now sport the ceilings of old loft buildings, parged brick walls, wainscoting, and a rich mix of new and vintage furnishings.

    Above: In the lobby, parged brick walls—brick that's been skimmed with a layer of cement to soften the surface—set off classic wood paneling and a graphic, diamond-patterned front desk custom-made of mahogany.

    Above: With its Brutalist light fixtures and vintage SeDede Non-Stop sofas that curve around a brick pier, the lounge has a magnetic pull. Small chairs and stools allow for endless configurings.

    Above: Details such as whitewashed beams, wide-board floors, and brass air registers lend character to the new high-rise. By day, the guest rooms, though small, are airy. By night, they expand via a glittering cityscape. Sheepskins, satin quilts, and pleated silk shades add notes of luxury and softness. Custom fittings include the brass pendant lamps (made in Morocco), flat-weave rugs (from India), and mottled curtains (stitched in NYC).

    Meet Isabel and George Blunden and their 1,100-square-foot fixer-upper in London. She's a travel editor, he's in media, and for their first remodel, they decided to completely gut the interior of their tiny Victorian railway cottage, working with just a building team. For the next four days, Isabel will be chronicling their design journey. First up: The Before shots and the big plans.

    The House, Before 

    When we bought our terraced house in southwest London, our first place together as a married couple, it was barely bigger than the flat that we had just sold. Financially, in the crazy London housing market, this was perhaps not the most savvy decision. But the idea of owning our very own little building, having tiny gardens in the front and back, plus a roof, four walls, and a front door that belonged to us and only us, was irresistible. We told ourselves: The key really was not how much space we had, but how well we could use it.

    Photography by Jonathan Gooch for Remodelista.

    Isabel and George Blunden Portrait | Remodelista

    Above: Isabel and George Blunden at their new front door. 

    The terraced Victorian railway cottage had been a rental property for the past decade. Every cost- and corner-cutting renovation and bad decorating decision that could have been made had been made. There was pebble dash on the front facade (every other house on the street still has its lovely, original brickwork), rotting timber window surrounds and PVC casements in place of the original stone and wood, and an awkward L-shaped back extension that had to go. That was just the start. Aesthetically discouraging elements included flimsy doors, the sort of unlovely metal door handles you see in schools, cheap orange pine laminate floorboards, and an overload of spotlights absolutely everywhere—the sitting room ceiling looked like a Heathrow runway at night. The house was a bit sad and unloved. But we could see beyond all of that.

    The Ground Floor

    Dining Area looking toward outdoor patio of Isabel and George Blunden London Renovation | Remodelista

    Above: The front door opens to a combination living room and dining room.

    Awkward L-Shaped Kitchen and Small Patio Space in Isabel and George Blunden London Renovation | Remodelista

    Above: It was absolutely standing room only in the kitchen—and if the dishwasher or oven were open, it awkwardly trapped you on one side or the other. We longed for a bright, sociable household hub filled with friends and family—and not a cheerless corner that the cook was banished to.

    Awkward L-Shaped Kitchen in Isabel and George Blunden London Renovation | Remodelista

    Above: Structurally, the galley kitchen was the main problem. Situated in the aforementioned extension that intruded into the tiny back garden, it was a dark, narrow space that was blocking natural light to the rest of the downstairs and impractical to use.

    Stand alone white fridge next to wood cabinets in kitchen of Isabel and George London renovation | Remodelista

    Above: The kitchen also took up the only sunny corner of our northwest-facing garden. It created a dead zone by the plastic sliding back door that was too small for a dining table but big enough to feel like a dreadful waste. Downstairs there was also a loo that was unnecessarily large and cut straight across the middle of the living space, and under the stairs was a big storage cupboard, fantastic for filling up with junk, but not a great use of that part of the house. We could see that we didn't have to extend the structure to give ourselves more room. With the benefit of hindsight, employing an architect at this point might have helped with storage issues and squeezing the most out of our new home. But we were full of energy and enthusiasm, and we wanted to do it ourselves.

    Exisiting Condition plans of Isabel and George Blunden London Renovation | Remodelista

    Above: Plans mapping the existing conditions of the two-story house. On the first floor, note the way the kitchen juts out awkwardly in the L-shaped extension and the powder room interrupts the middle of the space.

    Having come across plenty of similar properties during the course of our long house hunt, we had an idea of what could be achieved by shifting a few walls around, opening up rooms, and allowing light to flood through, all of which would give the place a better, more functional flow. It wasn’t a case of increasing square footage, we just had to repurpose the spaces. We plotted and planned the internal layout without an architect or designer. Our surveyor and our builder both chipped in with ideas and suggestions on what would and would not be possible.

    Proposed plans of Isabel and George Blunden London renovation | Remodelista

    Above: The proposed changes on both floors. In the kitchen, the plan was to knock down the old extension and flip the room 90 degrees—the point was to make the space feel bigger but preserve our precious sliver of outdoor space. On the second floor, fortunately, less fancy footwork was required.

    The Second Floor

    Despite the fact that there were no structural changes upstairs, we were still dreaming big, including a complete bathroom renovation. With three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, we had a fair amount of space but very little storage. For now though, we have scaled down our new bathroom ambitions until a later date. Here's a tour of what we were working with.
