My attention is usually focused on home design, kid stuff, and gardening so this week’s link roundup is right up my alley.
Target and Dwell Magazine Team Up on a Modern Home Furnishing Line
First up, Dwell Magazine designed a modern home collection that is currently available at Target online. The pieces are sleek, modern, and affordable. We are due for a patio furniture upgrade, and I’m thinking about partnering these outdoor dining chairs with a rustic wood table on my screened porch. Waddaya think?
A New Home in Kansas City for Wonderscope Children’s Museum
This week, Wonderscope Children’s Museum announced plans to build a brand new $12 million facility in the Red Bridge Shopping area in south Kansas City (near 112th and Holmes Rd). According to an article in the Kansas City Star, Wonderscope, which is currently operating in a former elementary school building in downtown Shawnee, will plan to break ground next year with estimated completion in 2019 or 2020. Plans are to share the building with the Red Bridge location of the Mid-Continent Public Library; the buildings will share a 300-seat auditorium. On a personal note, I think this is great news for both local kids and parents and for family tourism. Wonderscope has great leaders, intentions, and exhibits, but they are greatly limited by the small, outdated, repurposed building.
