If you've always skipped past the Weekend Guide thinking that we only cover New York, Chicago and LA, you may want to stop and take a look. This week, in addition to our usual haunts, we've listed events in Nashville, Philadelphia and Seattle. And for you agoraphobics out there, we've rounded up plenty of online sales too. Check it all out in the Weekend Guide, pass it on and send us your own sale or event.
Name: Edith Location: NW Washington DC Size: 1,200 square feet Years lived in: 1+ year
When I walked into Edith's apartment in Washington DC's U Street neighborhood I felt immediately calm. Her apartment is bathed in soft whites and neutrals but feels neither sterile nor overly beachy. It's a cool apartment but not at all cold. I could tell right away that Edith (who falls in that enviable 20-something age bracket) loves to entertain.
Another weekend is upon us — time once again to make weekend plans. Whether you're thinking of shopping for items for your home or taking in an art exhibition, we've rounded up some of the best sales and events across the country and online too. Check it all out in the Weekend Guide, pass it on and send us your own sale or event.
I love coming across new stores that specialize in furniture for small spaces. That Creative Classics also stocks furniture that's made in the USA is an added bonus. From sleeper sofas to storage beds, Creative Classics stocks a wide assortment of smaller scale furniture in both traditional and more modern styles.
What's that about good things coming in twos? It's true here; each of these chairs has a twin, a better half, a double, or a dopplegänger if you will. It would be oh so wrong to break up these happy pairs.
While this three day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer, it's also a wonderful opportunity to take advantage of the last batch of summer sales and events. As the temperatures start to cool, you'll want your nest to be warm and pretty – get started now and you'll be good to go when the first leaf falls. Check out this week's events and sales in the Weekend Guide, pass it on and send us your own sale or event.
Name: Holly Thomas, Refinery29 DC Location: Capitol Hill, Washington D.C. Size: 500 square feet Years lived in: 1 year; Renting
Holly Thomas is a do-it-yourself girl after one's own heart. With a background in journalism and a day job centered on finding cool haunts and thrifting treasure troves in the D.C area, this sweet southern transplant knows a thing or two about editing out the excess to find those rare birds of vintage paradise.
