What’s on our radar? Read on:

  • In LA next week? Join us at Nickey Kehoe (7221 Beverly Blvd.) on Thursday, May 29, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm to celebrate Todd Nickey and Kim Ficaro’s new book, The Inspired Home: Nests of Creatives (it’s one of our favorite design books of the year). Hope to see you there; also, see our post on the book here.

 

  •  Waterworks recently opened a flagship showroom on Kings Road in London: the basement level features dozens of tile vignettes and installations (including this shower tiled in the Gio Ponti-esque Parramore Mosaic), the main floor is the showroom, and the top floor is a studio space for designers and clients to work.
  • If you’re getting out of town for the long weekend, have a look at a foolproof method for packing toiletries.
  • We love a good outdoor shower. Here are five we have our eye on. 

  • Ditch the store-bought citronella candles and make your own. Photograph courtesy of BLDG 25 Blog. 
  • Downtown LA just got its first Scandinavian furniture and clothing store with a Volvo showroom inside. Margot is eager to check out the aptly named Austere

  • Best beach book: Love, Nina.
  • We are thrilled to announce that the 2nd Annual Remodelista Considered Design Awards will launch on June 1st. We’ve corralled a panel of all-star judges and look forward to submissions by both amateurs and professionals. Check back soon for more details. 
  • We’re exploring Modest Modern next week and giving away a limited-edition Heath Ceramics and House Industries collaboration clock. Watch for an announcement of the giveaway on our Facebook page next week.
