In the September/October issue of Garden Design magazine, Saveur editor in chief and Top Chef Masters judge James Oseland pens a feature on his home, a renovated apartment in NYC's tony Gramercy Park neighborhood. Upon moving in, Oseland and his partner aimed to match the period details of their 1901 apartment, and eventually connected with former Martha Stewart Living editor and interiors guy Shane Powers, who helped decorate the space with antiques, art, and plants. "We were careful not to overdo it," writes Oseland. "The aim was not to create a garden indoors but to evoke the feeling of being in a garden."
