Weekly Wrap-Up: American Idyll

Our sister sites celebrated Independence Day with a week of design, American style. Here’s what caught our eye.

Greydon House Nantucket Federal Suite Bathroom
Above: Design powerhouse Roman & Williams nailed New England nautical-chic with its work on Greydon House, a newish (it opened last summer) hotel in Nantucket. This vintage wooden coat rack is a perfect emblem of the style—full of character, history, and patina. See Greydon House: A Seafarer’s Inn (with Maritime Finds) on Old Nantucket.

Julie’s latest obsession is a stainless steel portable water filter made by a Colorado-based company and sold by a general store operating out of Amish country in Ohio. See Object of Desire: Good-Looking Berkey Water Filters.

OK, admittedly, La Minervetta isn’t in the US. The eclectic hotel is in Sorrento, Italy, but its red-white-and-blue interiors feel distinctly American. Here at The Organized Home, we zeroed in on (after first being mesmerized by the awesomely graphic tiles) the double-layer towel rack. It’s a great look and, in tight quarters, a smart space-saving strategy. See Stars and Stripes, Italian Style: La Minervetta in Italy.

  • Be sure to check out Remodelista’s Kitchen of the Week, a truly bespoke kitchen featuring luxe materials such as verdigris copper, black-stained ash, and Arabescato marble.
  • Over on Gardenista, Michelle reminds us that just because we’re well into summer, our gardening tasks aren’t over. See What to Do in the Garden in July, a handy height-of-summer checklist.
  • We also found quite a few storage items from Michelle’s trend story on olive-colored gardening products that could be repurposed elsewhere in the home. See Olive Garden: 10 Favorites in a Soothing Shade of Green.
