Cover Story

It’s Getting Hot in Here

From a cozy, country-style nook in a West Village walkup to the two stainless-steel galleys in one bachelor’s loft, four kitchens that will make you see cooking in a whole different light.


Bathroom Shopping List

Whether you’re seeking a vibrant, Moroccan-style salon or a tub that’s built into the office wall, these designer sources will help you get the most out of your bathroom.

The Missing Piece

Designer Vivienne Tam stripped her tacky postwar apartment down to its foundations, and then surrounded the roughness of exposed concrete with sensuous materials—lacquer, rosewood, marble, plaster—to create a glowing haven, a serene summation of the East-meets-West aesthetic that’s made her famous.

Kerrey's New War

Not so long ago, Bob Kerrey was a liberal senator from Nebraska with a glamorous bachelor life, a heroic record in the Vietnam war, and unlimited (the presidency) potential. Now he’s a New Yorker, a family man with a young son, and an embattled university president whose pro-war stance on Iraq—and involvement in civilian deaths in Vietnam—have made him a flash point of antiwar sentiment for his New School students. And he’s as introspective and articulate as ever. Talk about a long, strange trip.
