Current Obsessions: Globe Trotting

Issue 81 · Best of Architecture · July 20, 2013

We're featuring Australia next week and it's easy to forget that while we might be complaining about the heat, it's winter down there. (We were reminded of this when we spotted some flannel bedding in an Australian magazine.) Stay tuned for a week of great finds, in the meantime here's what's piquing our interest.


  •  Julie is obsessed with Danser la Musique, a musical trampoline installation by Chinese artist Chen Zhen at the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Tasmania (the attached bells jingle when you bounce).


  • Aussie stylist Sibella Court's instagram photo of Danser la Musique.

Goldfields Dwelling Remodelista

Plain English Kitchen

Juniper Berry Granita

Paddle 8

  • If you are looking to buy some serious art at more accessible prices, online auction house Paddle8 offers monthly themed auctions and benefit auctions in collaboration with non-profits. Shown above is an oil paint and oil paint skins collaged on canvas by Angel Otero as part of a fund raising auction for the Anderson Ranch Arts Center.
  • We're looking forward to getting our hands on the August issue of Bazaar to see the Hollywood Hills home of Nata Berkus and Jeremiah Brent.
  • To be filed under strange but true: wallpaper from the Beastie Boys. Check out Mike D. Wallpaper Designs.

  Gypsy Juice

  • Adding this to the buy list: Gypsy Juice spotted by Sarah in Australian mag Est, one of her favorite online reads of late.
  • Erin at Gardenista shows us how to keep moths away (no mothballs required).

Disc- interiors

  • Stay tuned for next weekend's Designer Is In feature: David John from DISC Interiors will be taking us on a tour of the Spanish Colonial home of Glenn Lawson (co-owner of Lawson Fenning) in the Los Feliz Hills and answering any and all design questions.
