D2S Editor Favs: Week of December 24, 2007

Psychotic.  Favorite Video

We love Kelly LaPlante of Organic Interior Design, and this video interview previews her take on green design for the home and her eco*luxe book.

 

Eating.  Favorite Kitchen

Our own Irwin Weiner ASID fluffed a penthouse (featured in our Scrapbook section) and you can see pictures of the final styling job, including this open-plan kitchen.

 

Dying from the heat.  Favorite Hot House

We flipped over the carport in this renovated midcentury home in Washington, DC, a design by Clothiel Woodard Smith, updated by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, with Prill Construction, contractor.

 

Old hat.  Favorite Antique

We hope Santa got you a cool present, like this 1860-1880 French cast iron garden fountain from Aileen Minor Antiques.

 

Crying.  Favorite Farewell

House & Garden is closing. Its December 2007 issue will be the last. Since 1901, this shelter magazine has served up heaping helpings of style and design savvy. We will miss it very much.

 

New idea.  Favorite Chair

Donghia's Open Villa chair is an upholstered beauty, with comfortable cushions perched on an airy wooden base. 

 

A lot of work.  Favorite Storage Solutions

Quilted_Access_Case_Natural.jpg

We love a well-organized kitchen, and Organize It is a northern California store with a web store that sells nifty solutions like this canvas quilted fine china storage set.

 

Chef.  Favorite Kitchen Helper

The Deni Stainless Steel Food Steamer is only $60. Cook one, two, or three tiers of food. Snap one up and make it your 2008 resolution to eat healthier meals.
