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

Happy Friday, all! Margaritas seem like a pretty good way to celebrate the upcoming weekend, don't you agree? When it comes to summer drinks, margaritas are definitely a favorite of mine, and this version with ruby red grapefruits is SO refreshing and delish! I followed this recipe (I love that...

Have you ever pinned multiple rooms from the same house, without realizing it was the same house? Such was the case with this amazing Modern Farmhouse near Seattle, designed by H2 Design + Build. I had re-pinned images of the dining room, exterior, bathroom, and barn door, before realizing they... Continue reading

Thanks so much for your kind words, Amy! The artwork can be found here: 1) Pink & Brown Abstract Print: http://www.imagekind.com/Electric-Garden-in-Pink_art?IMID=c3ee6230-5768-4b00-9c8a-9e86b2a92828 2) Pink Brooklyn Bridge Print: Unfortunately, this print was from an etsy shop that is no longer open - I found this one that is sort of similar: https://www.etsy.com/listing/152800126/brooklyn-bridge-icecream-pink 3) Bokeh Sparkle Photo: Again, this print was from an etsy shop that is no longer open! These are similar though: https://www.etsy.com/listing/166341141/abstract-light-sparkle-photography-set I hope that helps! Best, Kristen

I've been noticing tons of homes with black exteriors lately, and have been really drawn to the look. It's such a modern + dramatic choice for a house color, and while I know the look certainly isn't for everyone, I think it looks SO great when in the right context.... Continue reading

I don't know about you, but I genuinely love a good salad, and am always looking for new recipes to try, especially during the summer as the weather heats up... There's nothing more appealing than a cool, refreshing salad when it's hot out, am I right?! Well, I can say... Continue reading

Have you guys tried zucchini noodles before? I have to say, I've been skeptical for a long time, but decided to finally give it a shot this past week, and am SO glad I did!! They were seriously delicious, and such an easy way to cut out pasta carbs. You... Continue reading

Hi guys! It's been a while since I've shared a just-for-fun mood board, so I thought I'd change that! While pulling together some ideas for a client's living room design, these items jumped out at me, and basically created a color story/ mood board on their own... Since none of... Continue reading

OH MAN, those 2nd and 4th photos of Ellerie are definite keepers. Love her expression at the counter - she looks so content (and SO pleased with the pickles and parmesan!) ;)
