Designers on Holiday: Modern, Minimalist Tents, Cabins, Guest Houses, and More

Designers on Holiday is a summer camp in Gotland, Sweden, for 20- and 30-something creatives. The brainchild of designers Bobby Petersen and Tom Gottelier of LA- and Oslo-based Petersen & Gottelier, the getaway was conceived in 2014—a year after the two graduated from London’s Royal College of Art—when they acquired a 3.5-acre parcel of farmland...

Current Obsessions: Full-On Summer

Ahead this weekend: DIY bug repellent, a new camping essential, linens in summer colors, and the beginnings of August. Read on: Above: Bring dinner outside this weekend, with colored tapers and unfussy bundles of flowers. Inspiration via A Moveable Feast: Two French Shop Owners’ Whimsical, Always-Changing House in Reims. Available for preorder:...

Wax Atelier in London: Purveyors of Beautiful, Natural Wax Products

In an industrial estate in Barking, East London, Lola Lely and Yesenia Thibault-Picazo are busy reinventing the medieval craft of chandlery. “We are very proud to bring manufacturing back to an area that once had a strong heritage of producing everyday goods for London,” explains Lola. “Wicker baskets, matches, soap, pencils, paint tins and toys were...

Before and After: A Summery Bungalow in Topanga, California, Redone by an LA Designer

The song that looped in my head while admiring this California project was The Mamas and the Papas’ “Twelve Thirty.” That was inspired by LA’s Laurel Canyon in the 1960s, and this redone bungalow is in Topanga, but still: Both evoke for me laid-back, retro California summer. The bungalow is the work of LA-based designer Tamar Barnoon, whom we’ve gotten...

Kitchen of the Week: Rethinking Perfection in a Cabinetmaker’s Own Kitchen in Maine

Ben Block has hand-crafted countless kitchens all over the state of Maine via his company, Block Brothers Custom Cabinets, based in Northport. But the one he sent our way this spring is by far his most personal: his own family kitchen 25 minutes away in Morrill, Maine. The project began when Ben and his then-fiancé, Morgan, were moving out of Ben’s...

The Curator’s Apartment: A Design-Led Holiday Retreat in Bath

The Curator’s Apartment is a pared-back, art-filled holiday rental in the center of Bath that doubles as an artistic retreat. It is the first design-led rental created by Tina Liu, who—after a decade-long career in the City—is now a property developer intent on creating individually crafted spaces for passing travelers seeking ease and authenticity....

Current Obsessions: Savoring July

Ahead this weekend; plus, a few summer must-haves we’re coveting: Above: A glimpse from this week’s Kindred House, a New, Creative Coastal Retreat in Margate, England. A while back we took a tour of Té Company (see: The Loveliest Tea Room in New York), so we were intrigued to hear about a pop-up outdoor reading room in the West Village today, July...

Seven Lakes Inn in Maine: Summer-Ready Lodgings by a Mother-Daughter Duo

The latest weekend escape I’m eyeing here in Maine? Seven Lakes Inn, recently opened in an 1840s farmhouse in Belgrade. I first spotted glimpses on Instagram and was struck by the design-minded but unfussy interiors: black-painted bed frames, natural-fiber rugs, classic quilts—the kind of place you can hang up your wet bathing suit after a plunge in...

Kitchen of the Week: A Modern Barn Conversion in the English Countryside

What this project lacks in color, it more than makes up for in texture. Brushed stainless steel, soft Corian, and light oak combine with the age-old timber ceiling beams and stone walls original to the structure, formerly a barn, for a particularly striking materials palette. The team behind Jack Trench, a bespoke kitchen design firm in London, was...

Kindred House, a New, Creative Coastal Retreat in Margate, England

Kindred House, on England’s southeast coast, is Margate’s newest guest house and a place that has been inspired by the shore along which it sits. In fact, when I asked the owner, Natasha Lawless, to share some images of the project, she responded with a selection of elemental landscapes and details from her surroundings: a close-up of the erosion holes...
