The world’s lightest timber table (8 kilograms!) showed up at the London Design Festival this weekend RT

Grantland beautifully unpacks the latest, heartrending episode of Breaking Bad -“Certain things just aren’t supposed to happen. We’d never seen something so ordinary twisted into something so ugly. Certain people and institutions aren’t supposed to be punished for the sins of one individual. When and if they do come, the metaphorical chickens are meant to roost home-adjacent, not inside the walls of the baby’s nursery.” RT

Birchbox highlights a multi-tasking face cream French women adore RT 

“Your books on your shelves start becoming much more organized and they stop falling over because you’ve got bookends. It’s the main way in which it’s affected our lives, a real tangible way” –Marcus Mumford, on how life changes after winning awards like Grammys, RT
YESSS.  British actress Billie Piper has just signed on to star in our highly anticipated new drama series PENNY DREADFUL. Piper will play “Brona Croft,” an Irish immigrant to Victorian London trying to escape a dark and sordid past. She joins recently announced stars Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Eva Green, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear and Harry Treadaway. RT

Did You See? Is it She?

Beauty and the Beast references aside, have you read Est Magazine’s latest issue? I spotlighted Est here on the blog when they first debuted a few months back, and they still remain one of my favorite design publications.

Check out some photos from the Ferm Living Spring-Summer 2013 collection they featured recently.

And as a bonus, the Sarah Lavoine shoot is interesting but too austere for my tastes. I do love the unexpected pops of yellow, however.

Love List

Japanese minimalism, with earth tones and rounded corners. There’s something so restful about this room, it exudes a natural ease, stripped of effort or technology, almost as if it’s bleeding into the greenery outside the door. Would you live here?

I’m also in love with this Traditional Masai Choker from West Elm

Not to mention the gorgeous (if overpriced) Persian rugs in West Elm’s Found Shop

Assorted Turkish Rugs - Multi Pattern with Stripe, 7.5x4

Love

The minimal, streamlined look of this room, and the quirky touches with the hangers on a wood chain and gold-tinged rug.
