Current Obsessions: Headed to Japan

October 25, 2014

Take a look at what’s on our radar right now.

next week&#8\2\17;s object lesson: the great japanese cast iron kettle. 9
Above: Next week’s Object Lesson: The Great Japanese Cast-Iron Kettle.
  • Next week we’ll be exploring Lessons from Japan—we love this young family’s house by Harantsu Architects, in Izumo.
  • We’re on board with new Halloween traditions.
  • On our wish list: string lights from Terrain.
  • What do Switzerland, Germany, and Singapore have in common? They’re among the best places to live abroad.
  • Watch a time-lapse video showcasing the start-to-finish renovation of Donna’s Cocktail Lounge, a new hangout in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
  • Feeling moody? Enjoy a roundup of black rooms.
  • See to believe: Halloween ghoul lights on a house in Chicago are synced to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
  • Tour Idun, an adventurous new women’s clothing store in Minneapolis.
  • Six ways to expand the look of a small space.
  • Head over to the first Such and Such popup shop in London until October 27.
  • Heading to Turtle + Hare in Oakland, California, this weekend for more Japanese design inspiration (owners/designers Mónica Reskala and Christopher Weiss scoured Gifu and their shop is filled with their spoils.)
  • We’re remembering Oscar de la Renta in a 2011 interview with Nowness.
  • Tour a Brooklyn loft located in a former T-shirt factory.
  • Step-by-step instructions for painting over Ikea particle board furniture.
  • Reminder: The first overseas Remodelista Market hits London on November 15 at the New Craftsman.
