The reentry, as this time of year is known to the French, calls for a return to the essentials (with some fall cleaning and editing along the way). To ease the transition–and to supply inspiration–this week we’re celebrating architecture, interiors, design finds, and remodeling ideas that are paragons of simplicity and style.
- A few of our favorite things: Isamu Noguchi’s Ikari lamps (watch for Tuesday’s Object Lesson), linen bedding, pale wood floors, and a kindling pile that doubles as sculpture. See A Minimalist Parisian Loft for more.
- Later today in Shopper’s Diary, Alexa shows us around La Garconne, a Tribeca boutique designed by one of our favorite architects, and set up as a loft lived in by devotees of the fashion line.
- A new take on champagne in a tin cup: gold-rimmed ceramics from Chile inspired by vintage enamelware. Watch for Tuesday’s Tabletop post.
- Certain luxuries are worth splurging on: In Editors’ Picks on Wednesday, we’re presenting the bed linens of our dreams.
- The ultimate, chateau-style cooking range, and its less pricey lookalike? Stay tuned for Thursday’s High/Low Design post.
- Required Reading: a new book by UK stylist Sara Emslie explores creative approaches to living in small spaces. Emslie’s tricks come from experience–this is her own home.
