The weather for the weekend here is finally behaving like March weather, i.e. chilly, so I plan to knock out a project or two.
Yet another decor destination has arrived: Madeline Weinrib’s showroom on Fifth Ave in Union Square, described as “a launching pad for the more luxurious textiles that represent the couture end of her business.”
Weinrib is known for her impossibly perfect patterns on rugs and pillows (even my humble home has a flatweave).
The atelier is open to the public by appointment. It’s worth a gander for inspiration!
I’ve got swimsuits on the brain. Far too many swimsuits. Plus beach essentials like a floppy hat and cute sandals for when you inevitably go searching for an afternoon mojito or daiquiri. Don’t forget to take care of your skin afterward–applying a balm or oil immediately after showering will help you hang on to that tan longer!
The American Poets Project “present[s] the most significant American poetry, selected and introduced by today’s most discerning poets and critics.” I have mixed feelings about hardcover poetry editions (I feel dissuaded from making notes in the margins of a nice book), but if it makes people impulse-buy poetry, so be it!
Like pretty much everyone else who registers for wedding gifts, I have a whole kitchen full of plates, bowls, stemware, and glasses from Crate & Barrel. I have no intention of outright replacing some of my generic pieces, but I’m always on the lookout for cute vintage platters, dessert plates, and barware to break up the plain look.
