Current Obsessions: Clean Slates

January 6, 2018

From the latest winter garden trends to natural-dye workshops, here’s what the Gardenista editors are noting, this first weekend of 2018:

Snow-covered inspiration, for those of us snowed in, via data-src=
Above: Snow-covered inspiration, for those of us snowed in, via 12 Favorites: Snow-Covered Cabins from the Remodelista Archives.
  • 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.
