Things to do for February 10, 2011
Body Paint, Submarine Lamps and... Grandma
The weekend has no comment.
The Black Light Body Marker
You’ve set the scene: Candles. A little Marvin Gaye. And, of course, a marker. Yes, it’s time to make some art—with the help of black light body ink (and a willing model). Why yes, this stuff is French.
Your Spring Blazer Has Arrived
A preppy legend has returned. No, not Alex P. Keaton—Norman Hilton, an early-’60s staple at on-campus clothing shops. His son has revived the line, so you can get a spring-ready blazer, taken straight from Norm’s archives. Elbow patch not included.
Lighting Your Home Like a Submarine
You’ve long believed that more places should look like the inside of a ship. Nightclubs. Grocery stores. Your bedroom. Here to help: these vintage bulkhead lights, pulled from a fleet of vintage ships. Now, about that periscope...
Sweaters Made by a Grandma (Not Yours)
We couldn’t make this up: there’s a company in Britain that uses real-life grandmothers to make you a surprisingly sharp hat, scarf or... flowered glove. It’s not expensive, but you are obligated to call them every once in a while.
Fixing Your Table with... Matches
So you have this table. It wobbles. You’ve tried everything—sanding, new floors, consulting a dark magician/interior designer. (You know a guy.) Naturally, the guys at Partners & Spade have a simpler idea: shims, painted to resemble vintage matchbooks. Or you could just use regular matchbooks.
