April at last. Here are a few things that have crossed our screens this week:
- Remodelista favorite Sean Spellman is offering 50 percent off his art via his web store this weekend; use code 48HRS (and take a tour of Sean’s Airbnb here: A Pair of Musicians’ Effortlessly Cool Redone Cape in Westerly, RI.)
- Reports Nell from the UK: “I recently stopped into—and loved—Action, Gesture, Paint: Women Artists and Global Abstraction 1940-70 at the Whitechapel Gallery in East London. Atelier Ellis’s brilliant newsletter alerted me to the exhibition: their natural paint is the backdrop to 150 paintings from an overlooked generation of 81 international women artists.”
- Adding this good-looking hot tub to our roster of favorites.
- And a pretty lamp that can be repaired sans tools.
- Prime garden inspiration, courtesy of a pair of shopkeepers.
- Two reader comments of the week: On Little Mill Abergavenny: A Once-Upon-a-Time Holiday Cottage in Wales: “Love every inch of this place. Real people, real rooms, real life going on.” And, responding to another reader re: the patched-up sofa Trudy reports: “Our eldest cat protested the loss of the disintegrating cat tree by shredding the front arm of the sofa. I wondered if I could patch in a way that appealed to me. And I can, thanks to Linda’s inspiration. Merci, Linda.” See how in DIY Idea: The Patched and Mended Sofa,
- Finally, coveting a tulipière for every season.
