Here’s a list of what’s piquing our interest this week:

Penelope Green profiled Julie Carlson’s Wellfleet house in last week’s Thursday NY Times: A Childhood Home, and Poets’ Muse. We’re curious: do you have a great childhood house story? We’d love to hear it in the comments section below. (Above photo of Julie’s dining room courtesy of house guest Megan Wilson of Ancient Industries.)

In other Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home news, the Wall Street Journal profiles the book in Cooking Up a Kitchen with Character.

Above: Our friends Iko Iko and Dosa Mercantile are part of today’s opening of Arts ReStore LA, the Hammer Museum’s initiative to re-energize Westwood Village’s empty storefronts. It runs through November 24th. Shown above: Iko Iko setting up on Instagram.

Design Destination: Colorado via Country Living.

For the constant traveler: tips for sleeping on planes via Real Simple.

Above: Izabella has been revisiting An Afternoon With‘s profile of Moon & Hey. For more, see our post on their Tribeca loft.

Sarah just checked out AOC’s new restaurant—designed by Claire Stansfield—and picked up a copy of the new A.O.C. Cookbook; it’s looking just as good as Sunday Suppers at Lucques.

Modular glass dwellings put a rural escape within reach via HuffPost Home.

Above: GamFratesi’s light reminded Alexa of something similar spotted in Le Corbusier’s atelier in the southern outskirts of Paris.

DIY to try: a fall corn-husk wreath via PopSugar Home.

Finally, our friends at Sweeten are offering a giveaway worth $4,000 (you could win a vintage Ben Ouarain carpet from Brueckelen Berber plus a copy of Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home and a copy of Design Brooklyn: Renovation, Restoration, Innovation, Industry). Enter here. Good luck!
