Happy weekend! Hope it's a cool one. We're still having a heat wave here, so fresh ocean breezes are particularly appealing right now. But seeing friends who now live out of the country will definitely make even the hottest evening a good one. How are you escaping the heat this weekend?

A Green Oasis

This beautiful view is from a house called Lunuganga, the home of modernist architect Geoffrey Bawa. Located on the west coast of Sri Lanka, the stunning park surrounding the house is designed in a modern tropical style, the lifelong work of the architect. I love how the architecture — whether it's the house, arbour or terrace — is a natural part of its environment. So tranquil and lovely. More here on Marie Claire Maison.


Artist Judith G. Klausner embroiders detailed tromp l'oeil designs on actual slices of toast, such as pats of butter, mold splotches — or a fried egg. Fun.
