Current Obsessions: The Naturalist

October 21, 2017

This week the Gardenista editors announced our new book, Remodelista: The Organized Home, and admired an architect’s paintings, inspired by and painted with nature. Here’s a look:

Next on our itinerary: Maison Collongue, a \10-acre property with lime trees, vineyards, olive groves, and a natural spring in the Luberon region of France. The property’s three buildings—a \17th-century farmhouse, an \18th-century silkworm house, and a \19th-century house—span three generations of Provençal architecture. See more over on Remodelista.

  • This weekend Alexa is planning to make Heidi Swanson’s Toasted Pumpkin Seed recipe with Meyer lemon zest and oily black olives (“a genius combo,” she says).
  • Contributor Kendra let us know about the Autumn Garden Show,  from October 24 to 26 at the Westminster headquarters of the Royal Horticultural Society. She writes: “It’s like a village show in central London, with an autumn ornamental plant competition that features entries from Chatsworth, Blenheim Palace, as well as anyone who’d like to compete with the Dukes. Meanwhile, in other parts of the hall, there will be a large floral installation involving dahlia heads in the shape of a 10-foot mandala, as our friends at Electric Daisy Flower Farm reach the end of their year-long tenure as Floral Artist in Residence for the RHS.”
  • Annie is noting this artful cake topped with gooseberries, spotted on the Instagram feed of Måurice, a luncheonette in Portland, OR.
  • Now trending: An Insider’s Guide to Getting First Dibs on the Best Ikea Houseplants.
Taking note of &#8\2\20;Lake of Hope,&#8\2\2\1; architect Spencer Fung&#8\2\16;s exhibit of watercolors and pigments made from soil, lake water, and moss, and inspired by a mountaintop lake in the Pyrenees. It&#8\2\17;s currently on view in Hong Kong, soon coming to London. (For more on Fung and the inspiration he takes from stone walls, stacked woods, and seeds, see his Thoughts on Designing from Nature, over on Remodelista.)
