Simple Living. We always enjoy the Home Design features in New York Magazine. This week's issue was no exception with the weekend home of Scott Newkirk, a fashion stylist and interior designer. In Unplugged, we are inspired by Newkirk's 300-square-foot house where he lives off the grid on weekends. Designed with local and salvaged materials, the retreat is a stunning example of simple beauty...
With no electricity or running water, Newkirk bathes in a nearby brook.
