As summer solstice approaches, we’ll spend the week preparing for Midsummer. We’ll be exploring Scandinavian gardens, summer homes, and cocktails. Elderflower cordial, anyone?
- In this week’s Architect Visit, Danish architectural firm Lykke + Nielsen launch a side business creating modular cottages for summer living. We just need a US architect to riff off this, and we’ll be all set.
- A summer house north of Copenhagen has it all: an outdoor shower, a sunny patio, and simplicity. Plus, a dog who could be the identical twin of Michelle’s papillon Larry. Dalilah recreates the look in this week’s Steal This Look.
- Portable and collapsible are two of our favorite words to describe seasonal furniture. This week’s 10 Easy Pieces is devoted to stylish outdoor chairs you can fold up and tuck away come winter. Not that we have to worry about that for a while.
- A hog wire fence can be the height of elegance; trust us on this one (and see this week’s Hardscaping 101).
- What makes a garage a home? Scandi style from Ikea, of course. We explore budget options for summer guest quarters in this week’s Outbuilding of the Week.
