Vogue contributing editor Kathryn Neale is just as comfortable styling fashion shows for brands like Rebecca Minkoff and Peter Som as she is knee-deep in dirt in her beloved Brooklyn garden. When the New Zealand native first laid eyes on her current home, it was actually the slice of grass out back that sold her on the place. Since moving in, Neale has created a country-like oasis right in the heart of New York City—complete with wide-plank floors, exposed rustic beams, and a now-lush garden bursting with everything from roses to kale. Her two young children, brimming with polite charm (Neale takes manners very seriously), love to help their mom in the garden and even have their own veggies to tend to. And that’s exactly how she likes it.
