Current Obsessions: Passage to India


Current Obsessions: Passage to India

March 29, 2014

We’re heading to India this coming week; get ready for a color-saturated design tour of one of the world’s oldest civilizations. Plus, a few things that have won us over lately.

In anticipation of the coming India week on Remodelista, Margot has been checking out Love Travel Guides, a series of India guides by Fiona Caulfield. Made by hand in India (and slipped into khadi cotton or silk pouches), the books are filled with insider tips for “the luxury vagabond.” 
  • We made a dangerous discovery this week: Dosa is available on Farfetch.
  • At South by Southwest, Remodelista contributor Leigh was charmed by artist Amie Siegel’s film Provenance that traces the trade route of Pierre Jeanneret’s line of modernist furniture from the dumpsters of Chandigarh, India, to Paris and New York City auction houses. For more on the film, visit the New York Times, and for a look at where the chairs ended up, see Trend Alert: Pierre Jeanneret’s Modern Classic Caned Teak Chair.
  • A glamorous apartment in New York uses gray as a base color for almost every room, but executes it in a way that still remains lively.
  • Handmade in LA, a wool and leather tray like this one adds a tactile and stylish element to a desk or workspace.
  • Shauna Haider, a Portland-based graphic designer and blogger, shares everything she learned during a three-month bathroom remodel.
  • Sarah’s looking for a sleeker place to store bread and she has her eye on a walnut bread box.

  • We’re admiring the simple lines and warmth of a new collection of chairs designed by Markus Johansson for HansK.
  • A young couple’s weekend getaway in India combines culture and simplicity.
  • Grown Alchemist’s approach to skin care–and packaging–is pleasingly uncomplicated and pure.
  • Trying to figure out what bulbs are best to set the mood? One King’s Lane’s lighting guide breaks down what type of light each bulb gives off, and is offering all of the bulbs for sale.
  • For one of our favorite places to gather West Coast inspiration, take a look at Sunset, and if you want to know where we like to get answers to hard-hitting home improvement questions, see BobVila.com
