Kudos to the Museum of Design Atlanta, a.k.a. MODA, for this attention-grabbing move they made outside their doors on Peachtree Street:

These cute rubber duckies do make bathtime lots of fun, and they announced MODA’s exhibition Water Dream: The Art of Bathroom Design. I can’t wait to go check it out as soon as I have some time. For more information on the exhibition, click here.  It will be there until September 24th.

Look! Mini Area Bruno beds! Anki Spets, founder of Area, was asked to design a table for the DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) Dining by Design event held in NYC. Anki designed a table setup with 10 miniature Bruno beds with Area bedding and little figurines in the beds reading the NY Times (the table sponsor).  She used different Area fabrics to tile the background of the booth.

They also gave each diner a piece of clay to be creative during dinner (a great little ice breaker!). Nice show, Anki! Love it!

So I just signed up for my very first social networking event. It’s pretty easy for me to make it because it’s in my hometown. The Broke Socialite has been working hard to put this lavish shindig together. If you want to go, I promise to recommend cool places for cocktails and deeee-lish Southern cooking! So bloggy friends, if you plan on going, let me know in the comments section! Oh, and for more information, click here.

A Marcel Breuer House Tour Opportunity!

Darn it, I always miss all the good Modern events on Cape Cod! On Saturday October 9, The Cape Cod Modern House Trust will be holding a lecture and tour titled “Marcel Breuer: The Bauhaus Diaspora & The Scott House.” C’mon, how can you resist a lecture with “diaspora” in the title? Here is more information from The Cape Cod Modern House Trust’s blog:

Beginning in the summer of 1937, a small group of some of the modern era’s most important designers and thinkers chose the Cape as a place to congregate and eventually build experimental homes for themselves and their friends.

Among them was the seminal architect Marcel Breuer, who settled in Wellfleet and built four modest wood framed summer homes. Clues to another larger Breuer house in the Mid-Cape existed but information on the house had never been published, its location was unknown and it remained unavailable to scholars.

In 2009, in a collaborative effort between the Museum of Modern Art, the Cape Cod Times, and the Cape Cod Modern House Trust, the Scott house was located in an unaltered state with its original furniture and still owned by the Scott family.

This program begins with a lecture that will illustrate the remarkable history of this convergence of 20th century prime movers on the Cape, Breuer’s work in particular, and will be followed by a tour of the Scott house on nearby Scargo Hill.

Lecture & House Tour with Peter McMahon
Saturday, October 9, 1 – 3 pm
Members: $60 Non-members: $75
Limited to 35 people

To register, call 508-385-4477 ext 16 or sign up online at www.ccmoa.org
For more information, call 508-385-4477 ext 25

In case you didn’t check your New York Times Home section today, I wanted to let you know about a really interesting show at the MoMA. It’s called “Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen.” It’s all about the history of kitchens. To learn more, click here.

Some of our other favorite kitchen design inspiration sources include Susan Serra, The Kitchen Designer, and Kitchenlab. Check them out if you are in a kitchen kind of mood today.
