Designer and stylist Arielle Eby tours her charming, century-old city coach house; sharing small space, budget decorating tricks. Ideas include using small pops of wallpaper, making remnant pillows and transforming vintage pieces. Michael Penney demonstrates how to make a DIY anchor pillow, a coiled-rope lamp and framed nautical prints. Plus, chef Claire Tansey reveals how to choose honey, plus two new ways to serve it: caramelized on ricotta and prosciutto pizza and toasted with pine nuts for a crunchy salad topping.
