We’re kicking back for one more week and celebrating warm-weather living, with plenty of remodeling and DIY ideas included. After all, some of the most appealing elements of summer–from beach finds to coastal blues–are worth incorporating into rooms year-round.

Above: Later today, watch for Justine’s Tabletop & Dinnerware discovery: subtly colored bowls made by a Swedish ceramic artist with a background as an interior designer.


Above: In our weekly Tuesday Steal This Look, Michelle details how to re-create this postage-stamp-size Ikea kitchen. (You might want to copy the whole setup: It’s a garage transformed into a guest cottage, aka a “grottage.”)

Above: Also on Tuesday, in Palette & Paints, Meredith rounds up our favorite coastal blues. 


Above: “Any project that starts with ‘Step 1: Head to the Beach’ is A-OK with me,” Justine writes. In Wednesday’s DIY: Pressed Seaweed Prints, she shows us how to distill a bit of summer. 


Above: Presenting the nearly instant vacation house–a modular design by a Danish architecture firm, (Note the way the exterior door opens to create a windbreak.) Take a tour in Thursday’s Architecture & Interiors post.


Above: Friday’s Rental House is a 1962 Shasta camper converted into a backyard guest room–it’s in Nashville and listed on Airbnb.

We’re not the only ones holding on to summer–see what’s sprouting on Gardenista this week.
