Current Obsessions: A Heady Summer

July 27, 2013

We’re in the throes of summer entertaining (our theme for next week), and we’ve become addicted to elderflower cordial and anything else that will keep us cool, including big floppy hats. Here’s what else is going on:

we&#8\2\17;re admiring the colorful graphic tea towel offerings from studio 9
We’re admiring the colorful graphic Tea Towel offerings from Studio Patro, perfect for toting along on a picnic. (Check out their ideas for How to Use a Tea Towel—who knew?)
  • Whether you’re a local or from out of town, NYC’s High Line is always worth a visit. For a local’s view, check out Annik La Farge’s Livin’ the High Line. Kids in tow? Check out their Family Programs.
  • Good news for fans of LivingEtc. (that would be all of us here at RM): Say goodbye to costly overseas subscription rates and sign up for their Digital Deal on your iPad and iPhone.
  • East Coasters (well, New Yorkers), be sure to swing by West Elm’s Dumbo store to check out the Swissmiss (aka Tina Roth Eisenberg) Etsy selections from local Brooklyn and NYC-based Etsy sellers. The Etsy Pop-Up is at the West Elm Market with sellers there in person on Saturday.

Speaking of the East Coast, Christine admired the white brick texture on this building while she and her son waited 5 1/2 hours to see the Rain Room at MOMA. Worth the wait to be able to control your own weather destiny, if only for ten minutes? Definitely—it’s open until midnight on Sunday, the last day.
  • Architizer, the site that T Magazine dubbed a hybrid of Facebook, LinkedIn, and Flickr for architects finally gets a makeover. Check out their new look on Monday.
  • The enduring appeal of Cargotecture. Sunset rounds up some of the best upcycled Cargo Container Designs around, including this one in the Venice, CA, backyard of designer Jennifer Siegal of Office of Mobile Design.
  • We’re swinging by SF’s Renegade Craft Fair this weekend at Fort Mason in San Francisco to see more than 250 “modern makers,” and we’ll be returning next weekend for the American Craft Council show (more on that later!).
  • After spending a week in an unseasonably humid Southern California, Alexa is longing for other dry, Mediterranean climates like, say, Palomba, Italy. In particular, she’s eyeing the home (formerly a 17th century oil mill) of Italian designers Ludovica and Roberto Palomba; spotted on SF Girl by Bay via French by Design.

  • The Designers Are In! David John and Krista Schrock from DISC Interiors are standing by to answer your questions on the Spanish Colonial home they refurbished for Glenn Lawson (of Lawson Fenning). Ask away, and happy weekend!
