WHEN THE SCOT TISH PHYSICIST SIR DAVID Brewster invented the kaleidoscope in 1816, he could hardly have imagined the endless delight his design would give generations of children and adults—and even venerable jewelry brands. From the simple combination of inclined mirrors and a handful of loose objects encased in a tube, a person can create a mesmerizing array of evanescent patterns. With its latest collection of watches and jewelry inspired by the kaleidoscope, Harry Winston transforms the illusions within this everyday toy into a tangible and highly luxurious reality. The jewelry house first explored the aesthetic connection between a stone’s beveled facets and the ref lections in Brewster’s creation in the 1990s, when it released a gold and precious stone kaleidoscope object.

Others consider renovations a creative act, a process that is just as much of a reward as a home tailored to your exact taste. The clients for this luxurious yet laid-back 4,000-square-foot, four-bedroom apartment in Manhattan’s Carnegie Hill neighborhood were firmly in the second camp. “Together, we’ve renovated two apartments, and we built a house from the ground up on the Jersey Shore,” says the wife, a lawyer. “Our last apartment definitely leaned traditional.

THE NEW HOME Spending more time at home with family, working and learning remotely, being more mindful of the relationship between indoors and outdoors—all of these experiences have implications for how we will design houses going forward.

For us that aligns with the form of collective housing known as cohousing. —JENNY & ANDA FRENCH, ARCHITECTS There will be a return to cork walls for reduction of sound transmission. We’ll also…
