    Whether you’re waiting for a train, or have arranged to meet a friend near a mutually-handy station, you’ll want somewhere decent to get a drink. That’s why we’ve made this list of pubs near central London train stations. Every pub listed is less than a seven-minute jog from bar to platform. Some of them are on the platform.

    Paddington

    If you’ve got a half an hour or so before a train departs, walk 15 minutes to the delightful Warwick Castle. Enjoy a half by the canals of Little Venice, then jog back in time for your train.

    Not too far our of Gothenburg is this rather stylish 1960s architect-designed modernist property in Trollasen, Sweden. It is on the market too.

    The house dates from 1961 and has obviously benefited from very sympathetic owners over the subsequent 50+ years. All the details ate still in place, with a splash of modern-day style adding something to the pot too.

    1960s Harley Sherlock-designed modernist townhouse in London N6

    1960s Harley Sherlock-designed modernist townhouse in London N6

    Had a feeling this had been covered in the past, but the archives say it was a different, but similar property. It wouldn’t matter anyway, as this 1960s Harley Sherlock-designed modernist townhouse in London N6 has recently been refurbished, so worth a new shout regardless.

    1960s Harley Sherlock-designed modernist townhouse in London N6

    The word ‘refurbished’ isn’t one we always like to see when it comes to mid-20th century modernism, but to be fair to the current owner, we are struggling to see where new starts and old ends (with the obvious exceptions) on with this Southwood House Estate property. A sympathetic job for sure.

    Ian Fieggen’s OFFICIAL “Ian Knot” tutorial video. Teaches how to tie your shoes super fast with a knot that has the same or better security than the two other most common shoelace knots. Besides being faster, the Ian Knot is also more symmetrical, works equally for right or left handed people, and has fewer steps to memorize, all of which make it easier to learn. I hope you try the “Ian Knot”, the world’s fastest shoelace knot…(Read…)

    Bertoulat Kitchen with Dark Countertops | Remodelista

    Noticed lately in high-end projects: appealing dark wood countertops, finished with a sheen. Here’s how to get the look for less.

    Philadelphia Story: Two Creatives Tackle Their Own Kitchen

    0 #

    Ada Egloff and Rick Banister bought their Victorian row house in South Philly for a steal back in 2007, when they were fresh out of college: “Philadelphia real estate: How is the secret not yet out?” she asks. They’ve been chipping away at their place themselves ever since. And though neither came to the project with remodeling experience, they each brought talents to the table: A former vintage clothing store owner and buyer for Anthropologie, Ada runs Young Ladies, a brand-consulting agency that fosters young design companies. She has the eye and knows how to source what she’s after. Rick is a UX (user experience) designer at Automattic who works on WordPress, and happens to be a hobbyist woodworker.

    Ikea Disrupters: 5 New Upstart Furniture Companies

    0 #

    A new wave of entrepreneurs is taking on Ikea, cutting out the middlemen and offering locally made flat pack furniture direct to consumers and, in some cases, at below-Ikea prices.

    Artifox

    Sarah Carpenter and Dan Mirth, the St. Louis-based founders of Artifox, are “devoted to rethinking home and office products; our mission is to merge technology with the art of handcrafted goods.” The idea for the company came about after the two found themselves frustrated with the choices in office furniture; “the new mobile lifestyle requires products with multiple functions.”
