Happy weekend, friends! My Sunday scroll in wine, food, lifestyle, design and travel.
Movies for Design Lovers
With movie production taking serious hit, you probably need ideas of something to watch, anyway. So why not watch a movie that also appeals to your design sensibilities? Gotta love some good eye candy.
Sculptural Strength from Simone Leigh
Simone Leigh is the first Black Woman to represent the USA at the prestigious Venice Biennale. The Brooklyn-based sculptor, whose large-scale works explore Black women’s stories and histories, will create the American pavilion’s exhibition for 2022. See more of Simone’s impressive work.
Resilience Under Fire
This deserves a toast. When wildfires damaged the grapes at Lindsay Hoopes’ Napa vineyard, she didn’t let her harvest go up in smoke. Instead, she paired up with a spirits expert to create a sustainable, organic brandy from the singed grapes.
Lush California Living
In this new build, lush materials add subtle pops of color while rustic and neutral surfaces further the casual California elegance. Touches of bohemian vibes mix with modern food a rich mix. This outdoor space is an absolute dream!
Immerse Yourself in Van Gogh
Following the openings of immersive digital art museums in Tokyo, Paris, and Bordeaux earlier this year, the U.S. is getting a permanent digital art exhibit of its own. The multisensory experience headed to Indianapolis is similar to other Van Gogh experiences around the world, though the exhibit is entirely new.
Stay Under a Literal Rock During Election Week
I’m definitely not condoning NOT voting, but there is a way to stay under a literal rock During Election Week & It’s Only $5 a Night. Hotels.com has listed a man-made cave built 50 feet below ground in New Mexico. Between November 2-7, this room has an Abraham Lincoln-inspired “presidential” rate of $5 a night.
Spreading the Vegetarian Love
I know not everyone is vegetarian – but this article has some great fall recipes that would serve well on their own or as a side dish, if you still miss the meat. Pictured, a warm barley and caramelized mushroom salad.
Cheers to a wonderful rest of your weekend…
