April is almost here, and we're busy in the garden (hiding eggs and pulling weeds); here's a roundup of what's piquing our interest this week:

Above: This Capetown kitchen photographed by David Ross has a cross detail reminiscent of Tadao Ando's Church of Light in Obaraki, Japan (Sarah and Christine's favorite building).

• Having a look at Restoration Hardware's monumental new store in Boston, located in city's former New England Museum of Natural History.

• Inspired by this genius home office makeover in the once-cluttered home of a family of seven.

• In addition to our 10 Wardrobe Maintenance Essentials, here are two more tips for keeping clothes organized.

Above: Loving the Easter table we set with Diane Keaton last year featuring her Dinnerware Set for Bed, Bath & Beyond (see more at Easter in the Garden with Diane Keaton). Photograph by Nicole McIntosh Bruce for Remodelista.

Above: Also revisiting the Easter table we set with Gwyneth Paltrow a while back (see Tablescapes: Easter Lunch in London) and Rose Uniacke. (Julie liked GP's first book so much she's ordering a copy of her latest cookbook, It's All Good.) Photo by Simon Bevan for Remodelista.

Above: After this week's Gardenista post on Givré in Japan, we're all inspired to fill our homes with flowers; reading about how to get the most out of spring flowers.

• Speaking of sleep cycles: If you enjoyed our post 10 Secrets to a Better Night's Sleep here's further (fascinating) proof that getting a good night's sleep is more important than ever: Memory Triage and Other Secrets of Sleep.

• Stacey has been admiring handbags from Libby Lane, a line created by a Texas rancher turned stylist and designer (the bags are made from soft, local leather).

Above: Sarah is enjoying this Temporary Tree Project which took place during Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven a couple of years ago (spotted on nonchalant mom). For more from design group, Raw Color, see our previous post: Raw Color: Creating the Ultimate Organic Dye.

Above: Admiring Nani Marquina's world of natural rug making in Barcelona, Spain.

• Wishing we had attended Sovperiod (meaning "sleep cycle" in Swedish), a textile show from Hermine van Dijck, Eefje de Coninck, and Mayken at Kornél in Berchem.
