Autumn Inspired Kitchen Designs :: Swooning With The Season

Oh Autumn! Sigh. At last you’ve shown your lovely rose gold face. Even if it’s still 80 degrees outside, you’re glowing in a new hue! The light has shifted and the mornings are starting off a bit crisper. Starting the day off with tea, the thoughts of pumpkin hunting and even the potential of finally...

Feeling The Love: Heart Shaped Design For Your Kitchen & Table Top

I’ve got a thing for my kitchen…we’re in a relationship, actually. She treats me well and I like to shower her with gifts to show my appreciation. I also rent a house and let’s just say this 1940s darling is charming, but girl’s gotta get a design update up in this place! Holler at me...

Style Servings: Floral Denim, Wine Popsicles & Bloom Design For Your Home

I’m a pants kind of gal. There, I said it. I’m also really into this whole printed denim craze that’s taking over autumn. Leopard Print! Polka dots! Flooooooraaaaaals!!!

The Art Of Soup: Andy Warhol 50th Anniversary & Pop Art Kitchen Design

I was scrolling through my Instagram the other day (when am I not) and I came across the most magnificent sight on my bloggy boo Chocomeat’s feed. I’m talking about one of those “stop your picture scrolling-send out the carrier pigeon-where are you-are those what I think they are-shortness of breath” kind of moments. I...
Hiding From The Heat: Peach Ice Tea Infused With Mint

Hiding From The Heat: Peach Ice Tea Infused With Mint

It’s been HOT in these parts for far too long. Working from home with no Air-Con has proved…delirious. I’ve been seeking refuge in coffee shops, libraries….and mint. It’s funny how this mighty herb can trick you into feeling a few degrees cooler. I’ve been on an infusion roll, stuffing handfuls of the green machine into...

Dwell On Design 2012: Drool Worthy Picks

This past weekend  the design obsessed flocked to downtown Los Angeles for the Dwell On Design expo and helplessly drooled over the latest and greatest must haves for your abode.

Throwing In The Towel: Best Designed Kitchen Textiles For When Mess Strikes

Throwing In The Towel: Best Designed Kitchen Textiles For When Mess Strikes

I have quite the collection of tea towels…that I never use. I mean, I use them if you count hanging on the oven door for display as “use”. But for dish washing?! Heck no, get your saucy sticky paws off my tubular textiles. NOW! I’m crazy. I know this. I believe we should consider our...

Locavore Design: Housewares That Rep Your Hometown

I’ve got some serious home town and home state pride. Even though I’ve lived in California since I was a teenager, I still have some serious love for that mitten of a state I grew up in – Michigan. Heck, I am full of all kinds of Motor City sass and even root for the...

The Parker Palm Springs Style: Entertaining At Home

  Clearly I’m not ready to let go of Palm Springs just yet and with summer entertaining right around the corner I’ve decided to throw a little glam flair into my outdoor space. Is there anything more gorgeous than candy colored mid century wire furniture? Absolutely not. It’s a must, as is this croquet set....
Pantone Pantry: Tangerine Tango

Pantone Pantry: Tangerine Tango

Oh Pantone…let me count the ways. No really, you’re everywhere. Especially in my house! I’ve got Pantone espresso cups, postcard notes, coffee mugs, an iphone case and of course my handy dandy go-to color chip pallets that I use on the daily. My word let’s not even confess the fever I have for your X-Ref...
Style Servings: Pink Ombré Somen Noodles

Style Servings: Pink Ombré Somen Noodles

Two Words: Ombre. Obsessed. Be it pink gradated garments, submerged  sunnies or these trendy tresses. I am in absolute crush mode with fabulously fading pink hearts in my eyes. Maybe I’m just holding a tight grip onto my Jem and the Holograms days, but I declare heck to the heck yes on this dip dye business....
