Rebecca Atwood

We were recently turned onto fabric designer, native Cape Codder, and fellow RISD grad, Rebecca Atwood. Atwood's sensitivity to the material and playful interpretation of natural patterns, like stones, shells, and water, leaves a lasting impression, especially being a long-time friend of the Cape myself.

Hecker Guthrie in Melbourne

We can thank Melbourne-based interior design Hecker Guthrie for the warm minimalism of this apartment in Melbourne's Carlton neighborhood. Plenty of art and greenery against a bright white backdrop is a pretty solid guiding principle, and it certainly proves affective here.

Grovemade

It is surprisingly rare to come upon a functional, tasteful suite of desk accessories among the score of black, perforated steel and injection-molded plastic. We were therefore happily surprised to stumble upon the Desk Collection by Portland-based accessories brand Grovemade. The group includes storage trays, plant pots, and an array of accessories for Apple computer components. Clever design paired with timeless materials - hardwood, leather, cork - make you almost want to get back to work. For more, visit Grovemade. Via Design Milk

Paratelier

From Lisbon's own Paratelier comes a innovative means of home construction. By virtue of a using a cast concrete shell, the builders were left with not a few leftover wood panels from the mould. The obvious answer: Bring them inside. After the floor, walls, and furnishings, 93% of the wood was successfully repurposed. On top of this creative use of materials, abundant light and carefully planned spaces go a long way to make this house a home. For more, visit dezeen.

Roe Magdassi

There is something decidedly charming in the newest project from designer Roe Magdassi. Magdassi distills the recognizable forms of animals into elements furniture pieces that are able to bridge a childlike sense of fun with an adult practicality. In doing so, he seems to discover of new way of putting together a series of pieces: by species. Read more at designboom.

A Finnish Summer

We agree with every part of Emma Fexeus' praise for Finnish summerhouse style. She points out that "while it might be difficult for an outsider to spot the differences in style between the Nordic countries, they are definitely there." Simpler, more graphic finishes with an aversion toward vintage decor or cute pops of color. This essence of utilitarianism can definitely be found in the summer home of Johanna Lehtinen. For more, visit Emmas.

Blakes of London

From Blakes of London, a deftly designed kitchen and dining area in a Beckenham Victorian. A light, summery color pallet a clever array of design details, like subway tiled cabinet backs and an in-counter herb garden, make for both a refined and relaxed atmosphere. We definitely endorse Blake's carefully married material choices as wel. For more, visit Blakes of London. Via Remodelista
