Here’s a look at what we’ve been admiring this week.

Our Latest Instagram Obsession
Above: We’ve written about the work of Kate and Ben Towill for years (she’s the visionary behind some of our favorite film sets; he co-founded some of our favorite NYC haunts, including The Fat Radish). Since the creative couple launched Basic Projects, a lifestyle and design company, we’ve been poring over their feed to see what they have in the works (@basic_projects).
