  • Field + Supply is back in Kingston, NY, this weekend; get all the info here.
  • And 21 sales going on this Memorial Day (including a bunch exclusively for Remodelista readers).
  • We’d love to stop into “A Summer Arrangement: Object & Thing” at the LongHouse Reserve this weekend, featuring the likes of Faye Toogood, Simone Bodmer-Turner, Sophie Lou Jacobsen, and more.
  • Reports Margot: “Jean Pierre Cornet is a retired architect who paints Paris building scapes. I’m a big fan of his work, and he has a show opening next week, opening June 1 at Galerie Mercier in Paris.”
  • And Alexa reports that our friend Michaela Scherrer is hosting an open studio today, May 27, from 1-6 p.m., ft. a tour of the studio and garden, artist pop-ups, and food. It’s at 536 Rosemont Ave in Pasadena; more info here.
  • Meanwhile, in NYC, save the date for Remodelista friend Matt Dick’s opening June 1; teaser here.
  • Admiring Revival’s new scalloped-edge rugs.
  • The latest anti-plastic innovation? Seaweed straws.
  • Creative rainwater capture and 7 more garden ideas to steal from the Chelsea Garden Show.
  • And a dreamy landscape with a painterly palette.
  • And reader Harriet on Save the Sofa: 5 Easy Ways to Protect the Favorite Seat in the House: “Lots of reasons to do this. To change up the look and show off beautiful textiles you love. To make the room summery with white sheets or wintery with warm wools and just plain more interesting and individual. To avoid the agony of reupholstery—picking a fabric to get stuck with for years, sending your sofa to rehab for months, and paying big bucks. To avoid the disadvantages of custom slipcovers…..only to have to wash them or have them cleaned and then to wrangle to get them on again after they’ve inevitably shrunk a half-inch all over.” Just to name a few.
