Current Obsessions: Natural Charm


Current Obsessions: Natural Charm

December 3, 2016

Read on to see the smart, stylish finds that inspired us this week.


Above: The edginess of this DIY concrete planter caught Stacey’s attention. A worthy gift for the urban plant lover? Photograph courtesy of Monsters Circus.


Above: On our radar: Ivy Muse, in Melbourne, Australia. Founded in 2014 by two friends on a mission to “encourage creativity with greenery,” Ivy Muse recently launched its “botanical emporium” with houseplants, accessories, and gardening wares. Photograph by Annette O’Brien courtesy of Ivy Muse.

  • Annie wants to watch this new apple orchard in Sweden grow. Described as the “start of a new apple domain and terroir in Sweden and Europe,” this orchard resulted from a Kickstarter campaign by Brännland Cider in an effort to give back to the earth. The cider makers hope the orchard will “in time, spawn great cider but will also be a center of research, learning, and education on apple growing in the north.”
  • “Warm, approachable, lively—and chic.” Thank you, NYTBR, for the good review—and for putting our book in great company.
  • Tough beauties that need little H2O.


Above: If you’re in the Bay Area next weekend, please join us for our annual Remodelista Holiday Market in San Francisco at Heath Ceramics. Michelle will be signing copies of our new book, Gardenista: The Definitive Guide to Outdoor Spaces. The Del Popolo pizza truck will be parked outside. And more than 50 local artisans will be present including (clockwise from top Left) Len CarellaDomiMt. Washington PotteryMohinders, and County Ltd.  Join us Saturday, December 10, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and on Sunday, December 11, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
