This past week on Remodelista, we gave wintery interiors and designs a final salute. Next week, we unveil our Velvet Underground issue, a celebration of stealth luxuries, from metallic paints to Kul, a new restaurant in Copenhagen, and a coffee table Michelle purchased from a site called Previously Owned by a Gay Man. Stay tuned—and, in the meantime, here are a few more things we’ve been obsessing over:

As winter wanes, if you find yourself waxing lyrical for cabin life, Juniper Ridge offers a choice of woodsy cabin sprays with scents like Big Sur, Siskiyou, and Cascade Glacier.

We’re also giving away a $5,000 shopping spree at Terrain in Philadelphia (trip for two included) with a meal and guidance from our very own Julie Carlson. 

We love Sunset’s tips for decorating a rental. Eager to upgrade your rental? See Sarah’s Refined Rental in St. Helena.

Gardenista’s Erin Boyle recently moved to a slightly bigger space, but we’re still admiring how she and her husband made their tiny Brooklyn apartment—a mere 240 square feet—work for over two years.

The simplicity of this Butcher Block table from March is something to behold. We’re also fond of this custom work table at Lila B’s Florist Shop at Stable cafe in San Francisco.
