You might have seen his 265-square-foot Manhattan rental before, but Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan's home in East Hampton, N.Y., is a new one. Today the Times runs a piece on the property, which the Apartment Therapy founder bought in 1996 for $220K and has since poured another $50K into, adding a bar, six yurts, fire pits, hot tubs, a portable wooden outhouse—"the door fell off and wasn’t replaced, and now the outhouse occupies a spot facing the forest; a dish-towel flag alerts those approaching when it is occupied"—and furnishings from retailers such as Ikea, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, and DwellStudio. The dining room (above) has a table from Room & Board, chairs from Design Within Reach, and a complementary cherry-red floor. The Times has all the photos of the place where one can, say, "get out of your brain and into your body”—pay special attention to the yurt with the $89 bed canopy.
