  • Our Remodelista Holiday Markets season is around the corner. Join us at Heath Ceramics in San Francisco on December 10 and 11, and Rat ejuvenation in Portland on December 17 and 18. Details here.


Above: Stacey is captivated by London designer Mark Rusak’s flora-Infused piecesRusak incorporates unexpected textures and shapes in his designs, many of which include his genius idea of suspending flowers in resin.


Above: Kendra tipped us off to a must-see outdoor installation at the Victoria Miro Gallery in central London. Artist Alex Hartley has transformed a waterside garden into a fantasy ruin with accompanying 2-D artworks indoors. Running from November 19, the installation imagines a garden that is equally wild, lush, and neglected.


Above: On November 19 we will be celebrating the release of our new book, Gardenista: The Definitive Guide to Stylish Outdoor Spaces, and kicking off a yearlong partnership with Terrain. Join Michelle, Julie and the rest of our team for a cocktail party with DIY workshops led by our editors, at Terrain at Styer’s. Reserve a spot.

A project by Pritzker Prize-winning firm SANAA, the Grace Farms facility seemlessly fits into the landscape in New Canaan, Connecticut. Photograph by Iwan Baan courtesy of Grace Farms.
