  • 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 a 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.

  • 12 low-profile outdoor fireplaces.
  • Dalilah is planning to add this grilled corn salsa to her Memorial Day spread.

  • We are thrilled to announce that the 2nd Annual Remodelista Considered Design Awards will launch on June 1. 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.
