folding laundry

Last night I was doing the laundry. Inexplicably, it’s the folding that always seems to hold me up, so I usually put it off . I was sitting on the floor watching television and going through the repetitive motions of rolling socks, squaring up napkins, and unsuccessfully attempting to fold a fitted sheet (don’t judge). While working, I was viewing terrible things happening on the news: scenes of people caught in natural catastrophes around the world, footage of countries being torn apart by violence and political strife.

happy place

Artist and interior designer Kerri Rosenthal wants you to feel the sunshine when you step inside her XOKR Concept Shop. Even during cold, dark months, warmth radiates from the former fashion exec’s cheerful capsule collections of hand-painted denim and cashmere pieces, original decor, and graphic paintings. In true gallery fashion, the shop reinvents itself every two months. Its merchandise, art, and soundtrack morph into concepts like Tiki Summer and Old School. “We literally close our doors one night and open them the next morning with a whole new vibe,” says Kerri, who unveils each new theme via social media and hosts a launch party to celebrate. Shoppers flock in for a retail fix that’s pure joy, because, as Kerri says, “Happiness is addictive.” kerrirosenthal.com MAKE A DAY OF IT Westport has a…

She got an offer to do a kid’s coloring book. But, Johanna says, “I wanted to do something intricate that adults—not children—could do. This was in 2011, long before adult coloring became a ‘thing,’ so imagine how quiet the editor went when I pitched my idea. To convince her, I drew five samples, a taster of what was to come. After that, we agreed to give it a go!” BY: KATY KIICK CONDON; PHOTO: JASON DONNELLY; COLORING BY: MARIA DURYEE…
