Here's a roundup of what's piquing our interest this week: Above: Ever since we posted on Dramatic Floor Stencils , we've been spotting more DIYs like this one from Alvhem Makleri & Interior . Above: We're all looking forward to the new denim pieces in Margaret Howell's S/S 2013 collection. Photograph by Vanessa Jackman . Above: As we head into our "Roman Holiday" week, Julie is taking a look at Brit-born, Italy-based Sam Orlando Miller's work . Above: Get on with it already: check out of January Garden Chores pinboard. • Checking out a whole slew of kitchen reorganizing ideas. • A restaurant in Edinburgh, Scotland, with a design devoted to dogs . • We're flattered: Jessica Alba included us on her 10 Blogs You Should Follow in 2013 over at the Honesty Company. • Christine enjoyed this article on 10 Modern Buildings That Make Good Neighbors . • Sarah wants to hole up on Lonely Island for a while. Above: Checking out Ottolenghi's new online store , Sarah wants to try these dried barberries . • Stacey has become obsessed with SF-based Art of Sport's new line of posters . The two designers/soccer fans who started the company were looking to create a sophisticated line of team prints that are "living-room worthy." US teams are in the works. Stacey is an Argentina fan (they don't offer this yet) and a Swansea fan.
