Current Obsessions: Waterworld

August 24, 2013

This week we’re admiring the new Ace Hotel in London (in particular the murals of crashing waves), the home of Dimore Studio in Rome (world’s most beautiful bath?), and a shower curtain from Dave Eggers (strange but true).

  • A Fine Balance: Tom Delavan’s profile of Dimore Studio in T Magazine; an urban nautical bath.
  • Our friends at RTH in LA are holding their first warehouse sale this Saturday at 529 N. La Cienega. Run don’t walk.
  • Spotted on Emmas Design Blogg, an apartment in Ghent available for short-term rent (not for the vertigo challenged). Quick sabbatical, anyone?
  • A reason to worship? This surrealist steel church has us heading to mass.
  • We’re loving Sunset’s roundup of the West Coast Design scene and the creative talent here.

Above: Add this to your summer reading list: a monologue told to Dave Eggers by his shower curtain (it begins with “I am your shower curtain and I am watching you” and includes lines such as “I like to see you lather. I do not like to hear you sing”). Issue 16 by Dave Eggers is printed on a 72-by-72-inch PEVA (PVC-free) shower curtain by French company Izola; it’s $65 from The Thing.
  • Noticed on the blog of photographer Michael A. Muller, a new print publication called The Lumberjack, chronicling the work of Belgian design firm LMBRJK.
  • 13 creative uses for Mason Jars.
  • Stacey’s latest discovery: Follain, a new beauty store in Boston’s South End that specializes in American-made, natural products (and some great DIY ideas; note the double sink).
  • Japanese food served on Wasara paper plates from food atelier s/s/a/w via Satsuki Shibuya‘s blog.
  • Jon and Juli at Mjolk in Toronto share how to balance aesthetics while raising a toddler.
