It’s time for Friday Link Love. I cannot believe how fast the weeks are going by. It’s almost February and we’ve barely had Winter. This weeks cover of The New Yorker makes me want snow!
1. I was intrigued (as I often am) with the cover art of The New Yorker. It has this wonderful timeless feel to it. And here’s an animated version which is utterly charming. When I researched the artist, Gayle Kabaker, I discovered her collaborative Women’s March poster which is so cool.
2. Brooke from Nesting with Grace wrote about Banquettes and was kind of enough to include ours in her roundup of favorites. What I love about having a banquette is that there’s always room for a couple more. Especially when kids are little, you can really pack them in! Our kitchen in California was open under it and I liked that feel to it. In our current kitchen it’s more like a box. Brooke is designing hers with storage which makes a lot of sense. Read more here.
5. You know those instagram accounts that as soon as you land on their feed, you know it has to be them? For me that account is Small Acorns Amanda. Amanda has a shop in Wellington, New Zealand. She shows snippets of her home, shop, foraged finds and the beautiful landscapes of New Zealand. She’s warm, funny and has the most incredible eye for lovely things. If you don’t already follow her, may I suggest that you do? For your daily dose of lovely? You can find Amanda here, here and here!
6. A favorite coffee shop this week is Ludlow Coffee Supply, Lower East Side, New York, NY
7. On Trend–Olive Trees. Jen from City Farmhouse has an interesting post on Design Trends. Apparently the fig tree is out and olive trees are in. I love olive trees. The silvery green slender leaf is always recognizable. I tried to find one at Terrain this week, but my memory from last August in Tuscany will have to do until I can track one down. Have a great weekend and stay cozy! xo annie
