Current Obsessions: The Holiday Countdown

Issue 49 · Haute Holiday · December 8, 2012

We'll be at the new Heath Ceramics in SF today, celebrating our third annual Remodelista Holiday Market; drop by if you're in town (2900 18th Street) to meet our fantastic vendors.

Here's a roundup of what else is piquing our interest this week:

Above: The setting for this year's Holiday Market at the Heath Ceramics building in San Francisco.

• Sarah is desperate to check out Cortez next time she's in LA while Julie is looking into chef Laurin Hackney's regular parlour dinners.

Above: Christine repins from artist Aysen Orhon's Pinterest boards more times than she likes to admit and is currently coveting this painting of hers.

• Thrilled to see some of our favorite visionaries listed in Elle Decor's recent 10 Game Changers to Meet.

Above: Christine has just discovered that you can rent out one of architect Peter Zumthor's winter cottages in the Swiss valley of Leis; don't miss your chance of a possible celebrity architect sighting.

• We never would have thought Swarovski crystals could look like this: installation by Asif Khan at Art Basel.

• Sarah is listening to this by Seigen Ono.

Above: Janet's been coveting this gilded forest wreath on Etsy while Izabella has been admiring the wreaths by Le Dans La.

• Stacey is admiring Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired gingerbread house for the holidays.

Above: Thinking of adding this essential man-read to our Gift Guide for the Man's Man from earlier this week.

• Now this is storage at its best.

• Loving this recipe for Hanukkah sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts).

Meanwhile on Gardenista:

• If you're like us, you have a few gardeners on your holiday shopping list. Not to fear: we've got you covered.
