Current Obsessions: Found Art

April 19, 2014

This past week, we looked at a DIY kitchen overhaul for under $500 and bunny decor for the design-minded. With Earth Day looming, we’re dedicating our next issue to eco-friendly and sustainable living. Until then, take a look at a few things we’ve got on our minds.

Above: Naturally-dyed Easter eggs by David Stark.
  • Alexa hopes to someday visit the sculpture-filled New York loft of artist Hanna Eshel, whose work (and decades-long living quarters) has been discovered in late career. Her place is spotlighted on T Magazine and 1st Dibs.
  • No need to use chemicals this Easter; dye your eggs naturally with a How-To from Real Simple.
  • Our friends at Darby Smart created a kit for this DIY Stitched Table Runner designed by House of Earnest.
  • Saturday Night Live‘s Cecily Strong gets some home decorating help from the stylists at West Elm.
  • Sherry and John at Young House Love recently revamped their office (clever couple; they used a shade from our Happiness-Inducing Paint Palette).
  • When the desktop on Dalilah’s computer isn’t cluttered with pictures and folders, this work by Brit Brass is her screen saver (she discovered it on Design Love Fest, which offers a slew of free downloadable images to use as backgrounds for computers and phones).
  • Perfect for spring tables: Jadeite Plates made since 1959 in Ohio of hand-pressed glass. You can also find a bonanza of Vintage Jadeite on Etsy.
  • We wouldn’t mind downsizing if it were in any of these Tiny Houses.
  • The wooden floor fixation continues–we’ve been admiring prop stylist Joanna Lavén’s Stockholm apartment with its grand proportions and parquet.
  • Stuff for Your Home $20 and Under—a small, tasteful roundup that includes a marble utensil holder.
  • Meredith, Remodelista’s resident baker, is whipping up a batch of Double Chocolate Chip Cookie from Joy the Baker for her Easter party (Meredith, feel free to bring leftovers to the office.) 
  • Summer road trip? Here are 10 Vintage Trailers for sale in the classifieds on Tin Can Tourists.
  • Meet Sarah at the 17th annual Kitchens in the Vineyards event in Napa, where five homes located in the middle of wine country will open their doors for a home and garden tour. Sarah will be there signing Remodelista books on Saturday, April 26. Find out more details about the event here.
