Current Obsessions: Sunday in the Garden
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
April is almost here, and we're busy in the garden (hiding eggs and pulling weeds); here's a roundup of what's piquing our interest this week: Above: This Capetown kitchen photographed by David Ross has a cross detail reminiscent of Tadao Ando's Church of Light in Obaraki, Japan (Sarah and Christine's favorite building). • Having a look at Restoration Hardware's monumental new store in Boston , located in city's former New England Museum of Natural History. • Inspired by this genius home office makeover in the once-cluttered home of a family of seven. • In addition to our 10 Wardrobe Maintenance Essentials , here are two more tips for keeping clothes organized . Above: Loving the Easter table we set with Diane Keaton last year featuring her Dinnerware Set for Bed, Bath & Beyond (see more at Easter in the Garden with Diane Keaton ). Photograph by Nicole McIntosh Bruce for Remodelista. Above: Also revisiting the Easter table we set with Gwyneth Paltrow a while back (see Tablescapes: Easter Lunch in London ) and Rose Uniacke. (Julie liked GP's first book so much she's ordering a copy of her latest cookbook, It's All Good.) Photo by Simon Bevan for Remodelista. Above: After this week's Gardenista post on Givré in Japan , we're all inspired to fill our homes with flowers; reading about how to get the most out of spring flowers . • Speaking of sleep cycles: If you enjoyed our post 10 Secrets to a Better Night's Sleep here's further (fascinating) proof that getting a good night's sleep is more important than ever: Memory Triage and Other Secrets of Sleep . • Stacey has been admiring handbags from Libby Lane , a line created by a Texas rancher turned stylist and designer (the bags are made from soft, local leather). Above: Sarah is enjoying this Temporary Tree Project which took place during Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven a couple of years ago (spotted on nonchalant mom ). For more from design group, Raw Color, see our previous post: Raw Color: Creating the Ultimate Organic Dye . Above: Admiring Nani Marquina's world of natural rug making in Barcelona, Spain. • Wishing we had attended Sovperiod (meaning "sleep cycle" in Swedish), a textile show from Hermine van Dijck , Eefje de Coninck , and Mayken at Kornél in Berchem.
