Earlier this year, actress Rumer Willis surprised fans by being the woman—and voice—behind an elaborate lion costume on Fox TV’s singing-competition show The Masked Singer. Willis has been bitten by the singing bug, and now the former Dancing with the Stars winner is heading to the music studio to record an album later this year. The music, she says, will be inspired by Amy Winehouse, and aims to “take jazz and make it more digestible for a new generation.” Later this year, Willis will hit the big screen in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, a film from Quentin Tarantino.

RESIDE | Jean Nouvel’s Doha Masterpiece

At the National Museum of Qatar, the newest masterwork by Pritzker Prize–winning architect Jean Nouvel, history unfolds like the petals of an intoxicating, exotic flower. The 361,861-square-foot concrete-and-steel museum, which opened in the capital city of Doha in March, boldly embraces the past. Its spectacular, saucer-shaped discs form a necklace whose ends are clasped by the historic palace of Sheik Abdullah bin Jassim Al Thani, son of the founder of modern Qatar. Nouvel’s design was inspired by the aptly named desert rose, a flower-like aggregate of mineral crystals that forms only in the country’s coastal regions.

RESIDE | Paint it Black

Shading your walls in black may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re considering paint colors.
