This week we reveled in all things posh: blue velvet sofas, splashy marble bathrooms, and handsome brass shelving. Next week, we’re jumping into the kitchen and deconstructing the best layouts, appliances, and cookware. Until then, allow us to share a few other things we’ve been hung up on lately. 

Above: To fill you in on the week ahead at Remodelista, we’ve introduced a new Monday Table of Contents column.

Our favorite British flatware from David Mellor Design will be showcased as a part of an in-store exhibition at Heath’s San Francisco factory and showroom. For the opening, Corin Mellor, son of David Mellor and the company’s creative director, will be sharing the story of the company’s history and design with Remodelista’s editor-at-large, Sarah, on Friday, March 14th, from 5-8 pm. Event details here.
