Is it just us, or is summer flying by? We hope you’ve been able to enjoy the longer days and sunny skies, even in the midst of these challenging times. To keep you inspired (when you’re not headed outdoors), we’re back with our weekly round-up of the best bookmarks, from inspiring interiors to special spaces.  

Today, we’re sharing a refined retreat in Long Island, a quirky and colorful Sydney apartment, and a soothing San Francisco home. We’re also highlighting our favorite new products, a WFH quiz to help you be more productive, and resources to learn about Black culture in America.

A Refined Retreat in Long Island

It should come as no surprise that this stylish home, located in Long Island, belongs to an architect and designer couple. Reinaldo Leandro and Patrick McGrath have designed a space that’s full of refinement but never feels fussy. The clean white walls throughout the home allow the furnishings to really shine, from the traditional furniture to unique textiles, and the outdoor space remains understated, with a hint of summer shades. But our favorite space has to be the kitchen, with a display of antique vases and perfect pop of emerald green on the island.

Colorful & Quirky In Sydney

Designer Jono Fleming created this color-infused apartment for a very special client – his parents! Using shades of peach, pale pink, ivory (and a few hits of ocean blue) he crafted a home that definitely stands out (in the best way possible). There’s also plenty of pattern on display, from the graphic wallpapers to the kitchen floor tile, giving the space personality, and giving us lots of inspiration!

 

Shing A Light On Black Culture

African-American culture has deep roots in this country (dating back over 400 years). And many of their stories, prominent figures, and works of art have long been overlooked. But there are a number of museums shining a light on the Black experience – all over the United States. Check out this article for a list of museums  (that you can access online) to learn more about Black history, culture, and art.

Soothing Shades of White In San Francisco

Designed by Chloe Warner of Redmond Aldrich, the space is outfitted with modern furniture (in spill-proof indoor-outdoor fabrics), wipeable surfaces that are easy to clean, and lots of stylish areas for family time.
