Wallpaper-scrap DIYs, Maine-made furniture, and a few more things we’re noting of late:

Above: This weekend’s virtual browsing (or in person, should you happen to be near Oak Hill, New York): recently-opened upstate antiques shop Pidgin. See more at Shopper’s Diary: A Poet-Collector Opens Pidgin in Upstate NY.
  • This midwinter weekend, we’re admiring the moody, dark vignettes in a pair of designers’ Brooklyn loft.
  • One step closer to a new multi-site national park, the first to honor Jewish American heritage and the legacy of Black education in the history of the Rosenwald Schools, listed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
  • Introducing Nickey Kehoe’s new dinnerware collection, hand-thrown in Connecticut and available in two colorways.
  • After a small postponement, Margot’s artist-naturalist sister, Jody Guralnick, has a solo show opening tomorrow at the Denver Botanic Gardens’ new gallery space. If you’re in Colorado, take a look.
  • Attention fans of Scribe Winery: Sonoma’s hippest winemakers are introducing a limited-edition vermouth, “infused with herbs and citrus grown on our farm,” evoking “a winter walk up Arrowhead Mountain.” It’s available to members of the Scribe Viticultural Society; join here to get your hands on a bottle.
  • What to do with scraps of wallpaper left over once you’ve finished papering your living room? We like these DIY ideas from UK-based wallpaper designer Deborah Bowness: a wallpaper lampshade and papered stairs, too.
  • And Heide Martin Design Studio, Maine-based makers of some of our favorite furnishings, is offering 21 percent off any piece in their shop or made-to-order collection for 21 days, beginning January 20. Take a look (discount applied at checkout).
