I don't know if there is a more refreshing summer fruit than ice cold watermelon, and while I love it on its own, I've discovered that my new favorite way to enjoy it is in this salad. The lime vinaigrette is the perfect tart counterbalance with the sweetness of the... Continue reading

How fun!! They all look great on you, but #5 and #6 are my favorites, by far! :) #1 is probably my least favorite, as the size + shape looks a little costume-y to me! xo!

I know what you mean! That's always been my fear, too, which is why I've never worked with it before... it's definitely not a "safe" choice, and is a BIG commitment for such a permanent element! BUT, I will say that love the look, and think it can be a show stopper in certain applications :)

I have been so loving patterned tiles in interiors lately... Particularly in bathrooms and kitchens, which tend to be fairly neutral and utilitarian, the addition of patterned tiles are a great way to add color and visual interest. Here are some of my favorite spaces with patterned tile: Sources: 1... Continue reading

Hi there! Yes, these tiles (from the H-line series in the "Pumice" color) are definitely ceramic... But if I'm remembering correctly, I think they also had some glass tile options in the H-line series as well. I hope that helps - basically, if you ordered the "pumice" tiles, you should be getting ceramic! :) Best, Kristen

Happy Tuesday! This recipe was one of those pleasant surprises - you know, where you don't really have high expectations, and are actually pretty skeptical about the whole thing, but end up really liking it? That's how I felt about this cream of zucchini soup - it just seemed too... Continue reading

YAY! So happy to hear it! :) Bummer about the chicken, though... for what it's worth, it sure sounds like a brilliant idea, breading with the soy wasabi almonds! Thanks for taking the time to report back, Laura! AND for the info on the Cachaça varieties - I so appreciate it, and will be on the lookout :)

I LOVE chopped salads during the summertime, and have been trying all kinds of new ones lately... because while I love salad, I don't love having the same one over and over again :) Anyway, the great thing about chopped salads is that you chop up a bunch of yummy... Continue reading

I haven't had it before (or even heard of it), but it sounds like I need to change that fact real fast! :) Thanks for the heads up - it sounds delicious, and I will definitely keep an eye out :)

Before signing off for the weekend, I wanted to share this amazing margarita recipe. I've mentioned how much I love a good margarita before, and this one definitely says summertime to me! The cucumber adds an extra refreshing note to the marg flavor, and the cilantro adds the perfect herbaceousness... Continue reading

Happy Friday, friends!! This week has been busy starting new projects, which means I've been scheming and sourcing up a storm... my favorite part! But, I realized I hadn't really posted any completed design work lately, and wanted to change that before we head into the weekend. This design was... Continue reading

I LOVE summer vieggies, and it's always fun figuring out new ways to prepare and serve them. This year, I'm growing a few varieties of tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, and cucumbers, as well as zucchini, jalapeno peppers, and herbs, and am SO enjoying it... there are few things more satisfying than...

This Cuban Picadillo is a somewhat new-to-me dish that has quickly become a favorite go-to dinner meal. It's fast, easy, and so so tasty! I'm just crazy about the mix of flavors - spicy red pepper flakes, cumin, green olives & capers are sauteed with ground beef and a sofrito... Continue reading

Hi Kristy! Yes, if you use washable fabric paint, the runner is machine washable! Hope that helps :) Best, Kristen

When it comes to interiors, I'm finding that I'm drawn more and more to neutral spaces. I do love a jolt of color every now and then, but for the most part I'm preferring neutral spaces, with additions of wood tones and my favorite colors: blue and green. And while... Continue reading

I recently came across several different spaces by DISC Interiors that I really loved, and wanted to share. This was yet another case where I found myself admiring several similar spaces, and only later realized that they were by the same designer, and in some cases, from the same home!... Continue reading

I LOVE dill pickles, so I was so excited to come across this homemade dill pickle recipe from Food & Wine recently. Especially since I'm growing my first actual pickling cucumbers this year, I decided this would be the perfect recipe to try out on my first harvest... Well, I'm... Continue reading

Remember this modern farmhouse that I posted about last week? The dining room was one of my favorite spaces in the home, so I thought I'd show how to get a similar look: SOURCES: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 I love that... Continue reading

Man oh man, do I love this soup! This was my first time making Pozole, and if you're not familiar with it, it's a Mexican soup with a red chile, garlic, and broth base, and is full of tender chunks of pork, and lots of hominy. It's super delicious on... Continue reading
