This week, Remodelista editors have been celebrating the start of July by rounding up the ingredients for easy summer gatherings: screened porches, parade stools, folding tables, and festive bunting. Here’s what readers have been talking about this week:
Above: An airy conservatory kitchen and dining space were added when a Victorian house on the outskirts of London was remodeled. Readers love the herb planter inset in the marble-topped island. Read about it in House Call: Endless Summer in a London Victorian.
Above: Antwerp design company Xala‘s Lungo Watering Can takes its shape from an old-fashioned coffeepot. Yes, it’s plastic, but this time we’re making an exception. For more, see Belgian Basics with a Fairy Tale Twist.
Above: Bunting doesn’t have to be red, white, and blue. This multicolored string, crocheted in wool by Dutch designer Ingrid Jansen, is available on Etsy. If you insist on red, white, and blue, find more at 10 Favorites: Festive Bunting for the Fourth of July.
Warning: You only have till Monday to submit your outdoor project to the 2014 Gardenista Considered Design Awards. Let us see what you’ve got!
