This week’s highlights? Editors tour a historic house on Cape Cod and a chef’s garden in Brooklyn, plus art openings and, everywhere, nods to nostalgic summers past.
Take a look:
- Justine stopped into the Mary Heaton Vorse House in Provincetown, designed by Ken Fulk; see her glimpses here.
- Household is open at Nickey Kehoe in LA: a take on “early community hardware stores,” with elevated everyday finds for all over the house. “Stop in for your fresh flowers, peruse the curated collection, enjoy a bag of peanuts, and share your ideas about the art of slow-home living,” they say. Address: 720 Beverly Boulevard in LA.
- Opening today at Corey Daniels Gallery in Wells, Maine: new ceramics work by 13 artists, as well as sculptures and paintings by Jeff Kellar. There’s a reception this evening, July 9, from 5-7 p.m., and both exhibits will be on view through August 6. Stop in.
- The retro glass mushroom lamp is back (and it has a bittersweet backstory).
- A collection inspired by languid 1980s Italian summers (Luca Guadagnino style), via T.
- Fan let us know about this exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum—including a full-scale house inside the galleries.
- And Marina Abramović on cleaning (and her creative routines).
- June is offering 20 percent off select summer throws through July 10. Browse here.
- This week Gardenista contributor Marie Viljoen took a tour of executive chef Serena Bass’s gardens in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. (” You know you’re approaching the right address when the sidewalk becomes voluptuous with flowers a full two house numbers before you reach her front door,” Marie writes.)
- And a landscape architect’s own allotment in a London community garden.
- Last but not least: a sherbet-colored tablecloth/beach blanket for every occasion.
