Spring Lunch Under the Trees

It feels like it was just yesterday that we posted Timothy Corrigan’s out-of-this-world holiday entertaining style at the fabulous Château du Grand-Lucé. Five months later, the temperatures are steadily on the rise in the Loire Valley, and Timothy’s transitioning his parties from dinners by candlelight, to lunch in the garden. We caught up with the interior designer… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Bittersweet Grapefruit

Nature gives us a bounty of citrus fruits at this time of year for a reason: there’s nothing more invigorating to winter palates than biting into a Clementine slice or squeezing a bright burst of lemon juice over grilled fish or meat. Lately, I’ve felt particularly energized by the sweet-tart hit of grapefruit as an… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: From Paris, With Love

Can you think of anything more romantic than spending February 14th in Paris? As a city that oozes amour 365 days a year, just being in the City of Light on Valentine’s Day has got to be pure magic. Admittedly, I don’t have much planned for this coming Friday, but I figured I’d sneak some Parisian… read more


A Besh Box Gathering :: Valentine’s Date

Whether you’re planning a quiet dinner at home or snagged the hottest reservation in town, you really can’t go wrong with any scenario that involves good food on the 14th. We’ve partnered with celebrated chef John Besh to create the ultimate V-day plan: a candlelit meal and a surprise subscription to Besh Box! We captured… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Sheer Elegance

There’s just something about sheer, featherweight textiles that illustrates elegance in the most simple way. And with spring right around the corner, these sweet fabrics and frocks are certainly top of mind (along with the vision of gentle beams of sunlight making their way through sheer draperies…) Picture that special set of lace-y lingerie or… read more


DIY :: Tin Can Valentine’s Votive

If you caught yesterday’s 10 Best DIY Valentines, you may already have your February 14th crafting game plan all mapped out… but Valentine’s Day DIYs don’t have to be limited to small tokens of affection for your loved ones. For this project, I used a small, tarnished paint can to make a votive that’s perfect for adorning the… read more


DIY :: Dressed Up Solo Cup

I’ve been known to host the occasional blow-out at my place, and since I don’t have nearly enough glassware to accommodate 30+ guests (nor the time to make runs to the rental company!), I frequently opt to use single-use recyclable cups. Typically I love the clean look of regular clear plastic ware, but when I… read more


DIY :: Pigskin Beer Menu Card

Even if you’re not a Broncos or Seahawks fan, chances are you’re not going to let The Super Bowl pass you by without celebrating the big game. I’m a fan of just about any excuse to get together and party with friends, so you can bet that come next Sunday, I’ll be eyes-glued to a… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: A Boho Home

We all love a gorgeous, well-designed space — a home where every detail is thoughtful, intentional and purposeful, and not a single item appears to be out of place. But then there’s the opposite — you know, those spaces that look effortlessly unpredictable and anything but “designed”. In those homes, great style appears to have… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Plum Pretty

This cold and wet January weather has me wishing for a pair of good rain boots and ever since I saw that pair of plum Hunters on pinterest I haven’t been able to get them out of my mind! Wouldn’t those look sharp with a camel coat and black leggings? This particular purple feels fresh… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Eat Your Greens

It’s the first Monday of the new year — that’s something to celebrate, now isn’t it? I find myself craving clean, energy-giving food, making extra time to connect with the people I love and actually embracing a full to-do list instead of wishing for more downtime. Guess that’s what the long holiday break is supposed… read more
