Hello and happy weekend, friends! This week, we chatted with a few industry insiders who’ve had to adapt to the “new normal” that is 2020, toured an elegant NYC apartment for a family of five, and put together a list of our favorite summer beauty and fashion finds. Of course, there’s always a hearty list of links we’re excited to share from our friends and colleagues. Here are a few:

— Over on Coco Kelley, step inside a London home that embodies funky ’70s style but with a modern edge.

— Satisfy your wanderlust on Elle Decor… they’ve rounded up 44 stunning swimming pools we’ll be dreaming about all weekend long.

— Did you catch our webinar? Our Market Editor chatted with a few of Atlanta Market’s Shop the Show alumni (Annette Joseph, Monika Hibbs, and Kelsey Nixon) about how consumer needs have changed in the time of COVID-19. Click here to watch a recording.

— This weekend, we’ll be whipping up a Thai-inspired asparagus salad with fried meyer lemon. Thank you to Food 52 for the recipe!

— ‘Tis the season of open windows and doors… and all the flies that come along with it. How chic is this fly swatter from Flotsam and Fork?

— Ready for your next quarantine hobby? The Aesthetic Union is hosting virtual letterpress workshops. Get details here.

— Did you know you can design your dream rug with Beni Rugs? Similar to the brand’s original custom Beni Ourain styles, you can select from 10 background and line colors, and also add tassels if you’d like! Your own creative design will be delivered in 8-10 weeks.

— Need to get out of dodge? Look into No Vacancy, an 8-guestroom concept located in Kansas City. It’s a hybrid between a well-appointed loft and a boutique hotel, and is a perfect for travelers, staycations, wedding related festivities, and offbeat retreats. Best of all? There’s ample room for social distancing.
