- And now open in New York: an apartment/showroom in SoHo by Danish brand Menu.
- Our remodeling giveaway with Fireclay Tile closed on Thursday, but we’re still poring over your answers to what you’d remodel if you won. A few of our favorites: “My house is 115 years old and could use at least a new tiled floor,” one of you said. Another: “My house was built in 1890. My last kitchen upgrade was 1940/1950. I still have the original milk glass on the kitchen wall, which is a testament to the durability of tile.” (See all of the answers here.)
- Annie recently pinned these ceramic bowls modeled after fruits, perfect for summer produce. (She particularly likes the citrus bowl.)
- The new Portugal.
- How not to recycle: a guide.
- A new class of utilitarian (and good-looking) trash cans.
- Time-saving tricks for the garden.
- Eating outside? Pair design-worthy tableware with the perfect picnic basket.
