This week we’re admiring the new Ace Hotel in London (in particular the murals of crashing waves), the home of Dimore Studio in Rome (world’s most beautiful bath?), and a shower curtain from Dave Eggers (strange but true).

  • A Fine Balance: Tom Delavan’s profile of Dimore Studio in T Magazine (above photo by Henry Bourne); an urban nautical bath.
  • Our friends at RTH in LA are holding their first warehouse sale this Saturday at 529 N. La Cienega. Run don’t walk.
  • A first look at the new Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, London, via Monocle; we love the wall mural of crashing waves.
  • Spotted on Emmas Design Blogg, an apartment in Ghent available for short-term rent (not for the vertigo challenged). Quick sabbatical, anyone?
  • Add this to your summer reading list: a monologue told to Dave Eggers by his shower curtain (it begins with “I am your shower curtain and I am watching you” and includes lines such as “I like to see you lather. I do not like to hear you sing”). Issue 16 by Dave Eggers is printed on a 72-by-72-inch PEVA (PVC-free) shower curtain by French company Izola; it’s $65 from The Thing.
  • A reason to worship? This surrealist steel church has us heading to mass.
  • We’re loving Sunset’s roundup of the West Coast Design scene and the creative talent here.
  • Stacey’s latest discovery: Follain, a new beauty store in Boston’s South End that specializes in American-made, natural products (and some great DIY ideas; note the double sink).
  • Japanese food served on Wasara paper plates from food atelier s/s/a/w via Satsuki Shibuya‘s blog.
  • Jon and Juli at Mjolk in Toronto share how to balance aesthetics while raising a toddler.
