House, Barn and Yurt Therapy

The New York Times has a great write up on the Springs retreat of Apartment Therapy creator Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan. After purchasing a home next to his mother's 18-acre spread in 1996, the design guru has spent the better part of a decade (and $50K) transforming the place into one befitting a man who's published three design books. Still, he admits to a few missteps along the way: He used too much paint on the floors which then "became a squishy layer, and wrinkled and puckered" and the lights he installed under his kitchen cabinets don't work anymore. Good thing he's not after perfection. Instead, he thinks a place should let you "get out of your brain and into your body." [NY Times]
