We’re finally feeling the onset of spring–Michelle is rejiggering her wardrobe accordingly (stay tuned for her Domestic Dispatch column on Monday) and the rest of us are rolling up our sleeves, removing the extra blanket from the bed, and gingerly pulling the outdoor furniture into the garden. Here’s what’s on our radar this week:

Above: Here’s one store we need to add to our recent roundup of South African finds, Marissa Pretorius’ Opus Studio.

• House hunting in SF? Check out this elegant Pacific Heights house, remodeled by Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory member Jerome Buttrick.

• For those of us who supply custom guides for our friends when they come to town, here’s a new app that’s going to make those lists manageable: Mosey.

• As we head into a week all about domestic science, some of us are using the weekend to do two things: hand wash our cashmere and clean our hardwood floors (thanks to these two tutorials).

Above: When we featured the SF Home of Michelle Chan (senior editorial director at Banana Republic), there was lots of interest in her teak wardrobes. Made by Belgian firm Ethnicraft, you can find them at Lekker Home.

• Dream real estate: 9,547 square feet on íŽle de Boí«dic off the coast of Brittany.
