Lena Corwin Tie-Dye Quilt

I love my borough, but Brooklyn has been a little less colorful since Lena Corwin moved back to San Francisco.

Lena…

Counterpane Quilts

So many of the home owners that we feature in our sneak peeks have amazing quilts that they use as bedcovers or casually sling over a sofa. I’ve toyed with the idea of trying to make one on my own – maybe with a group of friends. But since I’d be starting at square one…

castle polka dot pillows

As I get older, I find myself veering away from polka dots, but it’s hard to resist the allure of electric pink and polka dots. I only have so much willpower. These new pillow cases from Castle in Australia are made of 100% cotton and have polka dots in fluorescent pink, white, black and yellow….
