Sweetness and Light

Beautiful geometry for your Thursday.

(via the poetry of material things)


This week's links. Enjoy.

A Netherlands Bachelor Pad
Take a tour of the stunning Haarlem, Netherlands apartment of musician and entrepreneur Alexander Nijmolen, located in what was once a cheese warehouse. Love this one. Via Decor8.

A Library for Colours
Utterly fascinating article about the Harvard library storing the Forbes Pigment Collection of the world's rarest colours — including ones made from beetle extracts, poisonous metals and (yikes) Egyptian mummies.

Pantone Swatch Food Match Ups
And while we're on the subject of colour, have a look at this fun ongoing Instagram series by designer Lucy Litman, pairing food items with their matching Pantone swatches. Inspiring and hunger-inducing.

The Spectacular Benefits of Non-Exercise
Interesting new research on how little movements — gesturing while talking, tapping your feet under your desk — can add up to a healthier day (though regular exercise is still important, too).

How to Repot a Houseplant
Just in time for spring. AnOther magazine's Agony Plant gently walks novice plant owners through the repotting process.

The Fine Art of Millinery
Luke Leitch talks to legendary hat-maker Stephen Jones about his extraordinary creations — works of art that transcend their original function as fashion accessories.

Springtime Spaghetti Carbonara
A fresh version of the classic pasta dish, to usher in spring — one that adds asparagus, peas and fresh basil.
