Respect for the Old: In a Tiny London Flat, Antiques, Vintage Finds, and Charm to Spare

The key to surviving this week without losing my mind was indulging in some joyful distractions, like playing with my dog, walking with friends—and perusing the Tat.London Instagram account, which traffics in interiors of the mostly-British, traditional-with-a-twist sort. If you’re into patina, pattern, color, sink skirts, and disheveled bookshelves (as I have been of late), the feed is a balm. Recently, I spotted a post on the particularly serene home of Georgie Stogdon, the founder of newish o...

Now Playing for The Six Weeks of Halloween

This is perhaps a misnomer since these movies probably aren’t playing now in movie theaters (if theaters are even open at all), but since we just watched a bunch of films from 1978, I figured it was time too look at some things released this year. The one movie I wanted to get to and is legitimately only playing in theaters is Brandon Cronenberg’s Possessor. It sounds like a hoot, but it’s not actually playing anywhere near me and oh yeah, there’s a pandemic on. It’s supposed to come to streamin...

Kitchen of the Week: ‘Wes Anderson Meets Provencal’ in West London

“Wes Anderson meets Provençal.” Designer Chris Graves (of Clarence & Graves) is describing his vision for his kitchen renovation. But what does that mean, exactly? For one thing, a memorable palette, in this case “a beautiful soft palette of pink, black and green”; for another, nostalgia for the past via quirky vintage and antique pieces. And then, there’s the more intangible element, a certain joie de vivre that all Wes Anderson sets seem to share: “I wanted it to feel joyous, convivial, bright...

The Life, Work & Philosophy of Bill Murray: Happy 70th Birthday to an American Comedy Icon

Good Movies as Old Books: 100 Films Reimagined as Vintage Book Covers

At one time paperback books were thought of as trash, a term that described their perceived artistic and cultural level, production value, and utter disposability. This changed in the mid-20th century, when certain paperback publishers (Doubleday Anchor, for example, who hired Edward Gorey to design their covers in the 1950s) made a push for respectability. It worked so well that the signature aesthetics they developed still, nearly a lifetime later, pique our interest more readily than those o...

But quite a few of the viewers who had seen and appreciated it seemed to run in Murray's circles, and in a 1999 Charlie Rose interview the actor told of be...
