10 Best :: Summer Tomato Recipes

To-may-to, To-mah-to! If you haven’t guessed from the dozens of recipes popping up in your Pinterest feed, it’s officially tomato season. I love buying local produce when I can, and the farm fresh tomatoes spilling over grocery and farmer’s market shelves (in a mouthwatering array of colors) makes it pretty easy this time of year. When you… read more


10 Best :: Dramatic Staircases

Some might argue that staircases are inherently dramatic — they’re architectural in an ancient way and provide instant intrigue to a room. What’s up there? There’s truly no version of my dream home that doesn’t have a staircase, although sometimes they’re simple stone steps and other times they’re carved from dark wood. We’ve rounded up ten… read more


10 Best :: Kids’ Rooms

It’s beginning…my two-year-old is out of her Oeuf crib and in to her Land of Nod Jenny Lind Twin. She can wear her hair in a legit ponytail, and she shares new (and quite strong) opinions every day. I love and admire her independent spirit, and as much as I want to fight it, this girl is… read more

10 Best :: Cherry Desserts

Today’s 10 Best is dedicated to my mom, the world’s biggest cherry lover. Every year for as long as I can remember, the moment that cherries hit peak-of-season, she heads to the grocery and picks up a big bag which she “accidentally” devours on the car ride home.  As wonderful as they are eaten fresh out… read more


10 Best :: Summer Hats

One of the best things about summer is fully indulging my love affair with hats. (You’ll rarely see me on a hot day without my favorite straw fedora from JM Drygoods.) It’s an accessory that serves so many purposes: protecting fair skin from the harsh summer sun, adding a bit of flair to a ho-hum… read more


10 Best :: Lake Houses

I don’t know about y’all, but there’s nothing that screams summer to me quite like a day spent at the lake. I love that feeling of familiarity when I dip my toes in the cold water, plants tickling my legs and waves made by boats rolling all around me. Even the murky dark waters of… read more
