  • We love the looks of Esquisses (“sketches”), a new collection of furniture, rugs, and accessories by Faye Toogood in collaboration with Maison Matisse, debuting on Monday in Milan. (“Perhaps it’s the contrarian in me, as Matisse is so known for his color, but I wanted to keep the whole collaboration in a palette of neutral shades,” Toogood says. “It is all about line and shape.”) More info via @maison_matisse.
  • Help preserve Alvar Aalto’s Church of the Three Crosses in Imatra, Finland, spotted via Tiina the Store.
  • In Philly? Stop into The Store (Remodelista cofounder Francesca’s daughter’s shopfront gallery) at 1411 Dickinson Street this Sunday for a tiny concert; more info here.
  • And save the date: Dorset-based design brand Wright + Doyle is popping up at Blunk Space April 27-30 (daily performances by the artist Carali McCall included).
  • And in Minneapolis, Saturday, May 6: Rudy Jude, Ginny Sims, Misha & Puff, and more pop up at Maison Bodega; teaser here; info here.
  • Wish we could walk through this verdant, serene courtyard at a former paper factory.
  • How to “prairie up” your garden.
  • And two reader comments of the week: On Terra-Cotta Tiles that Help the Environment, Jayme of Holly & Flora notes: “We absolutely love what Particular Tile is doing here in our community! We are tiling our kitchen and our eventual winery tasting room with their gorgeous tiles. As farmers, we obtain our irrigation water from the Paonia Reservoir and routinely have to heavily filter the water due to its heavy sediment. Decreasing the amount of sediment in our reservoir ensures the longevity of water delivery and, in turn, our business. Kudos to Chris and the team.” And on A Regency Cottage in London, Susan writes: “These two people are magicians. The rooms resonate with visual and tactile poetry, the outcome of years of hard work to realize a home that suits them and honors the materials they uncovered and incorporated. It’s like walking into a dream or memory.”
