Current Obsessions: Winterscapes

Issue 50 · Saint Lucia · December 15, 2012

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

Above: Alexa has been admiring Au Vélocipède in Saint-Valery-sur-Somme, France.

• It's almost winter solstice, but we're dreaming about outdoor spaces like this Energy-Efficient Boathouse in Austria.

Above: Alexa's been admiring Studioilse's Collection for Georg Jensen.

• Neutra's Hailey Residence on the market in the Hollywood Hills.

• Checking out these six portable kitchen islands.

Above: We were delighted to meet so many of our readers at last Saturday's Holiday Market at Heath Ceramics (including our friend above in her Fendi heels); if you missed the event, check out our Facebook Album.

• Liking the unexpected charcoal staircase in this Park Slope apartment.

Above: Ever since Christine worked with Brian Ferry on this post, she can't get enough of his atmospheric photographs of the "everyday" and is thrilled that he is currently selling limited edition prints--perfect Christmas present for any special person in your life.

Above: Mint in Mill Valley is one of the only places in the US where you can find the whimsical clothing of Le Vestiare de Cle.

Above: Reading about witch hazel growing in the Catskill Mountains.

Above: Julie is admiring the wire sculptures of SF artist Tara Knutson ("they're like suspended illustrations"), on view (and for sale) at Mint in downtown Mill Valley.

• While at ABC Carpet recently, Margot was stopped in her tracks by soft throws with stitched ends by Catalan company Teixidors. She would love one on her sofa, but fears that her dog would make it his own.
