We’re heading north this week to welcome spring. Join us:
We’ll tour a Toronto garden where panels of light make a deck glow like an architectural lantern. We’ve discovered new sources for stylish hanging planters and outdoor furniture impervious to the worst winter weather. And even if your property doesn’t suffer from Great Lakes Effect, you’ll want to hear the surprising things we’ve learned about how to keep your basement dry (two words: sump pump).
- Toronto-based landscape designer Joel Loblaw’s passion is making sure that in a four-season climate you embrace each season, ensuring there is something of interest at all times. In this week’s Architect Visit, he explains how to use lighting to accomplish that goal.
- Alexa spotted an unusual floral arrangement from this year’s Salone del Mobile by Milan-based shop owner and designer Rossana Orlandi and decided to recreate it (with a little help from Julie’s cat, JoJo) for this week’s Steal This Look. Warning: Cocktail glasses are involved. Wednesday
- “X” marks the spot in this week’s 10 Easy Pieces; our sleuthing has turned up ten stylish pairs of Directoire Style planters for your patio, porch, or garden.
- Soggy basement? Janet to the rescue in this week’s Hardscaping 101.
- Jess Chamberlain gives a sneak preview of Schoolhouse Electric and Supply Company’s spring collection in this week’s Shopper’s Diary.
And head over to Remodelista for a week of North Country style.
