Weekend Reading 6.12.21

By Kate Riley June 12, 2021

I spent a few hours hiking in Muir Woods on Friday, that was such a cool experience. There’s something about walking dirt paths and being surrounded by 1,000+ year old redwood trees that feels grounding and makes the little things we worry about seem…so little. I recommend the visit if you’re ever in the Bay Area, it’s about 30 minutes north from the Golden Gate Bridge.

I bought a few more green plants for my studio (can’t stop, won’t stop) so I needed two new planters and decided to make them. Assuming all goes well with that DIY project, then I’ll share them later this week!

Favorite links from the week:

This urban San Francisco apartment has a relaxed, neutral textures and textiles.

Find a fun summer vibe in this family friendly Southern California bungalow.

This waterfront cottage homeowner saved her vintage finds until she found her dream house.

This hotel in Oahu has a retro Hawaiian vibe (don’t miss the swings at the tiki bar!)

Convert placemats to personalized potholders with this simple sew tutorial.

The 13 biggest mansions in the world.

Ideas for using command hooks you might not have thought of.

Woah cool: these wave wood sculptures in a German forest.

I disagree with the California listings for these “best cities for living” in the U.S., what do you think?

Tragic but true: these natural wonders no longer exist.

  1. They think that *Sunnyvale* is in the top 50 best places to live?? Um, no, haha. I think Berkeley and SF have their share of issues, like affordability, but I would definitely choose Burlingame or Mountain View or Palo Alto over Sunnyvale, among South Bay suburban towns along most metrics.
