Current Obsessions: May Day

May 3, 2014

We’re wrapping up the week with a look at what’s on our radar right now:

Current Obsessions May Day portrait 3_18
Above: Last month we got an exclusive look into the Berkeley bungalow of best-selling authors Ayelet Waldman and Michael Chabon. Watch for a giveaway of Waldman’s new book, Love & Treasureon our Facebook page next week.
  • Our friend Aya Brackett is in Japan for her show “Soiled,” on view at two locations in Tokyo: Rocket Gallery in Harajuku, from May 2-13, and the Daikanyama Tsutaya Bookstore from May 1-18. (Aya hand splattered a limited edition of her program with natural dyes she made from hibiscus, coffee, sour grass, and beets.) For more information, go to Aya Brackett.
  • A new fashion pop-up at the historic Felix Meritis Residence in Amsterdam.
  • Meryl Streep’s 1954 Hollywood Hills house.
  • Declutter in 5 steps.
  • The factory where Everlane manufactures its brand new Swing Trench. The online fashion company’s first piece of outerwear debuted this week and is already sold out. Up next: twill travel accessories.
  • California Home & Design is back from a three-month hiatus.
  • In anticipation of our Handywoman issue next week: watching Gael Towey & Company’s just-launched videos of creative women in action.
  • As if we needed another reason to get to Berlin, the International Design Festival Berlin is taking place later this month.
  • No need to pack for a trip when you can 3D print everything you need.
  • Any Remodelista readers recognize this house? Hint: It doesn’t belong to Miranda Kerr. (Turn to pages 162 to 175 of the Remodelista book for the answer.)
  • Tour a reimagined Presidio Heights mansion for the 61st Annual Decorator Showcase in San Francisco.
  • DIY art for the mantle.
  • Bedtime reading: A Magical Trip to the Homeland of Gabriella Garcia Marquez.
  • Psychedelic custom wallpaper, anyone? (We’re big fans.)

Take a look at the rest of the week on Remodelista here, and don’t miss Gardenista’s O Canada issue.
