good reads: decluttered love.

the lovely online shelter mag, covet garden brought to us from our stylish Canadian neighbors to the north, continues to share the love. the issue 8 features the toronto home of Alexx and Paul, a couple who met, married and managed to happily merge their many belongings. their charming, and inviting home is full of re-purposed, vintage collections they combined and ‘de-accumulated’, leaving only the stuff they really love. here’s a look at the latest pages of covet garden, including a how-to on alexx’s diy patchwork blanket, and some of graphic designer paul’s fab typographic favorites. stay tuned for issue 9 of covet garden just around the corner!

    There are no directions for that quilt anywhere. Please let us know where to find them.

    Ann – if you go the magazine site go to issue 7 and just browse through the pages. it’s about ten pages in.
