The shelter category these days is so much more than Elle Décor and Architectural Digest—or even Dwell and Surface. Readers today are looking for more than some hyper-modernist building in Sao Paolo or the latest TV celeb’s Hollywood Hills home; they may want to know how a struggling photographer turns her 300 square foot studio apartment into a gallery-like showcase for her personal objects, or what newfangled architectural ideas are capturing the zeitgeist (even if they’re never built). With out-of-the-box formats, fonts, and treatments (fabric-bound issues, anyone?), the next generation of home magazines speak to the modern individual’s interest in design.
Photography by Martyn Thompson “Our home can be a little bit disarming when you approach it at first,” says Molly Findlay about the Italianate estate she and her husband, Everard Findlay, share in the lower Hudson Valley. “But once people walk in, they feel at ease and welcome.” Findlay is a set designer and prop stylist, which, in her words, means “working with false spaces.” Originally from the Mojave Desert, she began her career as a fashion assistant at Harper’s Bazaar (where she worked closely with photographers like Patrick Demarchelier and Richard Burbridge), but she switched gears and decided to focus on prop styling — a job she still does today and describes as “working with compositions, which I like a lot.” And every shoot she works for clients like Gucci, Nike, and Sephora has helped inform her home décor POV. The Findlays’ house is in Upper Nyack, a 45-minute commute from Manhattan. Findlay says the transition has been a happy one, but the family has had to learn to master the “rural arts.” The home is situated on 5 acres of land, and, luckily for them, only minimal work was required to move in.
