Fourth of July DIY: An Easy-Breezy Blueberry-Inspired Tablecloth by David Stark

Here’s a DIY tablecloth for Fourth of July that’s so easy that truly anyone—from kindergarteners to the arts-and-crafts-averse—can make it. Perhaps best of all? It’s blessedly understated, which means it can have a life well after the fireworks are over. You don’t need any tools (just a couple new pencils, a box, fabric, and some paint) to make this blueberries-inspired DIY tablecloth. Why blueberries? Aside from the apple, is there a more American fruit? Besides, “July is prime time for this se...

Holiday Decor: The Over-the-Table Rod from Terrain

Have you noticed a proliferation of floaty vegetal holiday decor on Instagram lately? Fronds hanging upside down from rafters, natural décor moments over the dinner table? We have, and we took note when we spotted Terrain’s Over-the-Table Rod, an easy way to recreate the look. Were we early to the game (see A Seasonal Celebration, Creatives Included)?

Four Outdoor Dining Experiences in Asheville

On the first crisp days of fall, open air dining is a dream anywhere. In Asheville, North Carolina, however, dining outdoors has taken on a entirely new meaning with elevated experiences that combine the best of outdoor adventure with a tall order of gourmet delicacies. While AUX Bar , a new downtown haunt from the minds of the Blind Pig Supper Club, hosts an outdoor, late-night cinema and Isis Restaurant and Music Hall is featuring a free outdoor concert series, other establishments are givi...

Kitchen of the Week: A Suave, Minimalist Paris Kitchen with Indoor-Outdoor Dining

“The architect-client relationship is like a short-term marriage, so choose someone you genuinely like and feel compatible with,” we wrote in our book Remodelista, A Manual for the Considered Home. When successful, we might have added, one project may lead to another. Such was the case for architect Philip Harden, who, after designing two Paris apartments for a couple with two kids, was reenlisted when the family moved on to a house. Located in a historic development in the chic, western Paris s...

The New Outdoor Dining: 5 Favorite Sources for Design-Forward, Disposable Plates and Cups

One of our favorite things about warmer weather: the advent of dining outdoors, and the opportunity to make each meal a festive occasion. When eating near home, we tote our ceramics and glassware right into the garden. But when traveling farther afield or in need of lighter wares, a slew of goods are now on the market that are more design-forward than the standard Dixie cups and white paper plates. Though they’re all disposable, many are eco-friendly, biodegradable, or plastic-free, and some are...

New from La Trésorerie: Biergarten Tables in Black and White

We’ve long been fond of the traditional German biergarten table for outdoor entertaining—our first story on the topic was a full decade ago. Back then, whether one of us scored a Vintage Table or bought one new, it always had green coated metal legs and a wood top of pine, fir, or spruce. We like the look, but it’s nice to have options—so we were delighted to spot new biergarten tables in black and white from La Trésorerie, our latest Parisian obsession. (See our story La Trésorerie: A New Inter...

Shopper’s Diary: Artisanal Wares from Colombia at Someware Goods

On our radar: Someware Goods, the LA-based online shop that features housewares “handcrafted by artisans and designers from around the world,” is currently featuring a line of Colombian-made products. (It’s fitting, as the site’s founder, Giselle Hernandez, is Colombian-born.) We think the indoor/outdoor enamelware and woven totes (made of fique, a leafy plant native to the Andes) are perfect for the transition from summer to fall. Photography courtesy of Someware Goods. Above: The San Mateo H...

Kitchen of the Week: Indoor-Outdoor Cooking in Sydney

In their remodel of a “dark and unpleasant inner-city terrace house” in a Sydney suburb, architecture firm Benn + Penna introduced a kitchen addition that blurs the lines between indoors and out. Sliding glass doors—and some architectural magic—enable the territories to merge, and weather-resistant materials allow for a counter that extends all the way from cooktop to integrated open-air grill. Photography courtesy of Benn + Penna Architecture. Above: “The mandate was to turn the structure int...
