From the latest winter garden trends to natural-dye workshops, here’s what the Gardenista editors are noting, this first weekend of 2018:
- We’re celebrating five years of Gardenista (and 10 years of Remodelista)! Here’s a look back at where we’ve been, at home and in the garden.
- From imperfect ikebana to the woodpile as sculpture: see the trends we’re tracking for 2018. (And see what’s on the radar in the world of design over on Remodelista.)
- And another trend that’s caught our eye: burlapping (or, furoshiki for the garden), via The New York Times.
- Is this the future of gardening? Michelle reports that Amazon recently secured a patent for a new service that will enable you to upload a photo of your garden for suggestions on what plants work well, recipe ideas, and best garden items to buy. Read more about it here.
- Over in Paris: workshops on dyeing with plants and other natural tints, from Paris-based textile atelier Whole. (Read more about how they use “European rhubarb, canary cochineal, avocado skins, carrot tops, cachou, gall nut” to create vibrant and artful hues, over on Remodelista.)
- This week on Instagram: Margot is taking winter weather inspiration via Norway. Follow along @kristinenor.
