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 :: Persimmon

If you’ve never tasted a persimmon, please add it to the top of your to-do list this week. They’re in their prime ripeness this time of year, and the flavor is really unlike any other fruit. I first fell in love with the small orange delights during my time in Israel years ago, where they… read more

Monochromatic Monday :: Watermelon & Tomato

Today’s inspiration board is a total celebration of summer’s bounty: the bumper crops of watermelon at farmer’s market, piles of juicy tomatoes that I can’t seem to use up fast enough and peaches that are so juicy they drip down your face like melty popsicles. Last week, we shot a chapter about “setting the summertime… read more

Monochromatic Monday :: Sunlit Garden

Morning, lovelies! I’m up early, excited to start a new week of projects as I organize my thoughts and make to-do lists. I started reading the book Imagine this weekend, and my mind is literally spinning with ideas on making this a more creative place, new topics that I’d like to explore and innovative collaborations… read more

Handmade Happiness

We weren’t joking yesterday when we said that we’re simply smitten with everything coral for spring… and when I say ‘smitten with’, what I really mean is obsessing over. Add a new line by Heath Ceramics to the mix, and we’re a total lost cause. I know it might be a tad bit¬†fantastical, but why… read more

Monochromatic Monday :: Caramel + Coral

Do you guys ever get “stuck” on a certain color? Where you find yourself compulsively pinning, buying and dreaming in monochrome? That’s what coral has been like for me lately (I suddenly have three coral dresses in my closet!), and I’m still swooning whenever I lay eyes on just the right shade. And I’m definitely… read more

Sneak Peek of “Food & Flowers”

Oh, I just couldn’t resist sharing ONE gorgeous photo from the “Food & Flowers” party I hosted at my place last week. Stay tuned for the entire visual feast, along with some amazing floral instruction from The Byrd Collective…but for now, have a lovely Sunday! xo… read more

Monochromatic Monday :: Summer Sunset

We’ve been experiencing some awfully gorgeous sunsets lately…A and I have started a little tradition of taking a glass of wine out to our “lookout point” off the back deck, and talking over the events of the day as the sky turns shades of gold, pink and dusty coral before dipping below the horizon. This… read more

Weekend Notes

Lounging by the pool this morning with A and a big plate of waffles, and thoroughly savoring the slower vibe of summer. Anyone else slightly freaked out that it’s practically July? I’m determined to not let summer pass me by without experiencing the little joys of the season…for me, that includes strawberry snow cones, sunbathing… read more

Monochromatic Monday :: Poppy & Peach

I took advantage of my long flight home from Aspen yesterday to start culling inspiration for an upcoming shoot I’m putting together with a super talented group of vendors. We’re gathering our most creative female friends for an afternoon of floral instruction and farm-to-table noshing…and of course, the table must be brimming with style &… read more
