Curator Picks - 5/2

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

New Yorkers: have you seen the current exhibition along Park Avenue by Venezuelan artist Rafael Barrios? They are these insanely mind bending 3D sculptures that are really thin when you get up close but seem to be a totally different shape from far away. I appreciated them as I whizzed down Park Avenue in a taxi that smelled like cinnamon and ginger. It made for a bit of a mind altering experience this morning.

Interior Design:

Do you guys shop on One Kings Lane? It's a seriously tempting sale website where you can get the best brands in curated collections for a lot cheaper than in stores. Anyway, their current sale is all about getting the Domino look using the power of neutrals. I'm digging the Nathan Turner spencer sofa in grey. The sale ends in 2 days.

Changing up the look and feel of a bathroom could be as simple as changing out the shower curtain. This post on 10 cool shower curtains for Apartment Therapy inspired me to run across the street to West Elm today.

Seriously, fuck that Michael Graves for Alessi kettle with the (most adorable) bird-shaped whistle (and where can i find one?)

I'm excited for the May/June issue of Rue to go live tomorrow.


Bakerella did a review of her favorite baking books of the moment. I wish I had half of these! You can also enter on her site to win a $150 Amazon gift certificate if you comment on the post and tell her which book she should bake from first. 


Victoria at A Subtle Revelry has a giveaway for a pretty personalized clutch from Angee W (see the rest of her collection on Etsy). You can have it printed with your favorite photograph so when you open the clutch you see your loved one (or loved pet, or favorite scene etc.). Perfect gift for Mothers Day!

The Wednesday giveaway over at A Cup of Jo is from Terrain, that fabulous home and garden shop based in Pennsylvania. You could win a $200 gift certificate to buy whatever you want in their store. I'd use it to get this gorgeous enamelware bake set that I've been eyeing for weeks!
