Picks of the Week on the blogosphere | 080301 issue


My choice this week from my fellow bloggers features a mix of stylish comfort food and modern architecture masterpieces.

While I make my weekly selection, I pay attention to find a harmony between the pictures in top of presenting you a great source of information on stylish living.

This week, my picks give some clues on color trends. Think orange, bright blues and greens for a cool factor. Also, you can reflect on how to integrate more circular shapes for food presentation.

My 4 picks of the week

The Kitchn for How to Boil an Egg: Eiko Egg Boilers from Vessel

I got the impression that some AT readers miss the point. This is to make soft-boiled eggs. If you like gadgets, you will love this new product from Vessel that can be used to eat the egg once it is half cooked. I do like the colorful aspect that Eiko will bring to my table.

Design*Sponge for in the kitchen with: béatrice peltre

Once more, Béatrice of La Tartine Gourmande stimulated all our senses with her beautiful food pictures. Here, she made a bicolor soup – potato soup + pea soup. Perfect for the remaining cold days until Spring really surfaces. She was the subject of a post on Design*Sponge.

Apartment Therapy Los Angeles for J.Crew Goes to the Kaufmann House

As retailers want to upscale and bring an element of cool in their catalogue, they use iconic houses and places to try to convince. The Kaufmann House in Palm Strings is a Modernist masterpiece that is currently on sale. If you have millions lying around, you can still bet at the auction on May 13th, 2008.

J.Crew clothing lines are still not cool enough for me but the current intro of their Web style looks fantastic. The mid-century modern trend is not over yet. Will this trend suffer from marketing exposure by mainstream retailers?

Apartment Therapy San Francisco for Snee-oosh Cabin by Zero Plus Architects

Everyone wishes to own a getaway house from the city. This beautiful example of modern architecture tries to minimize its footprint on the planet. Snee-oosh Cabin was designed by Seattle architecture and design studio Zero Plus Architects. I love the design. You can see interior shots on Apartment Therapy San Francisco.
