This weekend, after the holiday, we’re pausing for a moment of respite before summer races on. On our radar:
- Julie has her eye on “Abstract Climates: Helen Frankenthaler in Provincetown,” curated by Lise Motherwell, a stepdaughter of the artist and PAAM board president, and Elizabeth Smith, founding executive director of the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation (HFF). It opened yesterday and is on view at PAAM through September 2.
- Elsewhere, in London: Margot is thinking of planning a return trip just to check out Rovi, Yotam Ottolenghi’s newest restaurant—this one in Fitzrovia, with a focus on “vegetables, fermentation, and cooking over fire.” (It opened recently and had to temporarily close due to a green extractor hood that was too good to be true, but it reopens soon.)
- Tuesday in Maine: Frances Palmer’s ceramics at one of our all-time favorite flower nurseries. More info here.
- Upstate farm stands are open: Stop into Ravenwood today and tomorrow, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (And take a look at their summer dinners in the barn.)
- Last year’s smash-hit pop-up in Callicoon is now shoppable online: See Sunny’s Pop.
- Our favorite storage picks—from Anthropologie.
- Garden essentials in shades of olive.
- Alexa is headed to Paris. Have a tip on a design shop, restaurant, or hotel to share? Let her know in the comments.
