Now that it’s officially summer, we’re heading to the waterfront. Join us this week as we hang out in hammocks and celebrate all things nautical.

Above: Izabella shows us around Oaxen Slip, a remarkable new Stockholm bistro and Michelin-starred dining room in a rebuilt boatyard—it’s today’s Restaurant Visit.


Above: Did you know that the British Royal Navy once slept aboard ship in cocoon-like hammocks that rocked with the waves? This week’s Object Lesson by Megan Wilson is the nautical hammock.

Above: In Thursday’s House Call, Julie presents a well-accessorized beach house available for rent in Cornwall, England.  


Above: Artist Cassandra Wilson applies a new twist to the classic sailor’s monkey knot; read about her designs in Margot’s Friday Nautical Accessories post.

Have a look at Gardenista—they’re also celebrating the Life Aquatic this week.
