Happy weekend! Hope it's a good one. We're planning on doing a whole lot of nothing here — maybe an impromptu picnic on Sunday if the weather is nice. How about you?

A pair of New Yorkers have turned a Long Island fisherman's cottage into a summer home that's an ode to the life of the sea. Antique fish prints cover the walls, stuffed fish (from the coast of Florida) pop up everywhere, a collection of midcentury boat cushions add cheerful colour and vintage signage and marine equipment provide finishing touches. The furniture is also marine themed — a pair of living room chairs are from a yacht, a pretty rattan chair (still with its original seat fabric) once lived at the beach and the carpets are from a yacht club. All of it adds up to a relaxed and fun holiday home that celebrates life by the sea. More here on Elle Deco.

Part toy, part art piece and part educational tool, the cute creations by Paper Punk are designed to encourage people to create with their hands — made from foldable, brightly colored die-cut paper blocks, each kit comes with stickers and instructions for building and customizing a robot, dog, or car.
