Home & Garden Roundup: 09.16.06

Sep 18, 2006

After reading Editor Lynette Evans' latest complaint about Modernism (essentially that it's for young people), we almost didn't want to find out what else lay in wait for us in the Chron's H&G this weekend.

But the piece on architect Henrik Bull caught our eye, and so we read on. (He's a Modernist, mind you, but a woodsy one.)

  • SIGNATURE STYLE / HENRIK BULL: This "Bay Tradition modernist," who is known for "not screwing up the nature," is also a fan of kids, and outfits family residences with fun details like fire poles.

  • From clutter magnet to cozy nook: Risa Nye spent $10K creating a reading nook in a window, and not surprisingly, it looks quite comfy now. An Oakland upholsterer is mentioned: Kay Chesterfield. Anyone have experience with them?

  • Luther Burbank's other garden: Experimental plants, on display up in Sonoma.
