Current Obsessions: Winter Light


Current Obsessions: Winter Light

December 7, 2013

This weekend you’ll find us at our LA Holiday Market on Saturday (hurry over!), and this coming week, San Francisco residents can check in with Julie–and get a signed copy of our new book–at Anthropologie on Thursday, followed by our SF Holiday Market at Heath Ceramics on Saturday. Meanwhile, get ready for a week of posts about Scandinavian design–we’ve been stockpiling our finds, and the Scandis know how to do up the winter holidays. And for your weekend inspiration, have a look at what’s catching our eye right now.

  • A dream-like wooden boat dock at the Bäka Light House in Latvia by SAALS SIA architects, via Architizer.
  • We just got word from across the pond that our friend Richard Stepney has created another of his seasonal pop-ups in his London rooftop hair salon, Fourth Floor. The Fourth Floor Corner Shop is a collaboration with design studio North and will include Timothy Everest’s menswear and Jeremy Pitt’s birch pimps (that’s Brit-speak for fire starters). Information here.
  • We’re bookmarking these closet organizing tips via Popsugar Home to revisit after New Year’s.
  • Our friends at Dosa are celebrating the release of Alice Water’s new book, The Art of Simple Food II, as well as helping to raise money for the Edible Schoolyard Project, with a book signing and sale on Sunday, December 8, from 2-5pm; details here.
  • Artful mantle clutter is okay with us. Here are 12 accessible holiday mantels worth replicating via Country Living.
  • Another great addition to the Portland, OR, retail scene: Imogene + Willie.
  • Julie is taking notes from Roberta Bendavid, the woman behind Gramercy Tavern’s flower arrangements; Food52‘s “How to Build a Holiday Tablescape” details her surprisingly simple ideas.
  • Heath Ceramics will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this Saturday, Dec 7th, from 5:30 to 8 pm, at its SF and LA locations, with the opening of a show of one-of-a-kind clocks made by friends and collaborators. See Design in Time for details.  And mark your calendars: we’ll be back at Heath for our SF Remodelista Holiday Market on Dec 14th.

Can’t face the crowds? Let us to do the holiday shopping for you: check out our gift guides; we’re running one every weekday until Christmas.
