We spent this past week in the kitchen, deconstructing layouts and presenting our favorite designs. We also discovered artful coffee drippers, the best tech tools for remodelers, and a London studio apartment with an ingenious kitchen in a closet. Next week, we’re heading across the pond to pay homage to the British Isles, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. In the meantime, we’d like to show you a few other things we’ve been thinking about lately.
Above: Julie is hoping that LA-based architectural enthusiasts will check out Malachi Connolly’s Built on Narrow Land, a look at the European modern architecture of the 1960s and 70s on Outer Cape area of Cape Cod. It’s at the Architecture & Design Film Festival in Los Angeles this weekend (showtimes are 4:15 pm on March 15, and 8:30 pm on March 16 at the Los Angeles Theatre Center); go to ADFF Los Angeles for more information.

Above: While hunting for Pierre Jeanneret chairs this week, Alexa came across this amazing photograph of Charlotte Perriand in a Jeanneret lounge chair. The photoâ€”and an extraordinary compact kitchen by Perriand for Le Corbusier’s Unité d’Habitationâ€”are on view right now at MOMA in New York as part of the Designing Modern Women exhibition.
In preparing for our British Isles week, Meredith has taken to the work of Irish painter Eamon O’Kane.
Julie shares her favorite LA spots with Design Milk.
Above: This week Margot has been perusing the offerings from H&M Home, which has been quietly available in this country since last summer.
Have you ever seen a great-looking toilet brush? Have a look at this one.
Sarah has been checking out the various projects at The Possible, Berkeley Art Museum’s experimental exhibition in which anyone can sign up for public workshops in the dye lab, print shop, ceramics and recording studio (and more). You can also chat with visiting artists working on-site. It runs through the end of May.

We’re getting ready for the garden season by browsing Gardenista’s roundup of wooden trugs and baskets.
Above: Some of us at Remodelista are a little coffee crazed, so you can say we’re slightly envious of NYC photographer Alice Gao’s coffee set-up.
See Kitchen Composition for all the Remodelista posts from this past week. And read Gardenista’s Mr. McGregor’s Garden issueâ€”a look at kitchen gardensâ€”including 10 Tips for Growing a Kitchen Garden and A Greenhouse as Restaurant.
