Tiny Studio Cabin by Hinterland Design

It doesn't get much more idyllic than this: An illustrator of children's books who lives on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia needed a quiet workspace that was nearby, but separate from, her family's bustling household. She contacted local designer, artist, and builder Riley McFerrin of Hinterland Design to replace an existing shed on her property, perched on top of a steep hill, by maintaining the old outbuilding's small footprint. The design brief? "Small but airy, bright but cozy, and most importantly modern, yet in keeping with the rustic charm of the country."

Capitol Butter Dish from ODLCO

With the Democratic and Republican conventions now over, what we've all known for months now is finally official. It's Mitt vs. Barack, impressive hair vs. impressive ears, Harvard lawyer vs. Harvard lawyer in an escalating, autumn-consuming death match for the White House/free world/future of all mankind. Feeling patriotic? Feeling cynical? Feeling like a piece of buttery toast? Should that last one appeal, Republicans and Democrats alike should consider keeping that delicious, fatty spread in Morgan Carter's hilarious new Capitol Butter Dish for ODLCO. Made from porcelain in Chicago (ODLCO and POTUS's home), this clever riff on the architectural tchotchkes they sell in DC by the boatload should swiftly become a bread-and-butter addition to any design-minded table. And at just $50 apiece, you can afford to pass them out to all the fellas in your Super PAC.

Modern Cookware, Old and New

One of the best parts of working at Dwell is the neverending onslaught of modern home goods we get to see, from dishtowels to doorknobs to desktop speakers. And after wrapping up September's entertaining issue, we've had kitchens on the brain. Two recent cookware introductions have especially piqued my interest: one, a Danish modern classic re-introduced to the mass market courtesy of Crate & Barrel; the other, a brand-new collection of "serving" cookware from Alessi.

HOT POT BBQ

Hot Pot by Black+Blum

Most BBQs can flame grill a burger just fine, but for the 355 or so days out of the year that it isn't in use, Black+Blum's Hot Pot one-ups its counterparts: The terra cotta cooker ($124) also doubles as an herb planter.

Mr. Kate Sets a Dwell Table

For this week's installment of entertaining tips, Dwell invited Los Angeles–based blogger, jewelry designer, and hostess extraordinaire, Kate Albrecht of mrkate.com over to set a table or two. I wanted to share with you some quick ideas for on-the-fly table-tops for those unexpected entertaining moments when you have guests (or maybe a date) coming over with little notice and you don't have time to shop for a formal tablescape. I tasked myself to look around my rental apartment and create two, on-the-fly, modern-vintage themed tabletops that would suit my entertaining needs, without even getting as much as a bouquet of flowers from the store!
