Whenever we have the chance to combine two of my favorite things, music and design, I get incredibly excited.
I’ll admit it, I’m not a super crafty gal, but I delight in seeing a space with subtle touches of personality that reflect its owners.
[*For the next two weeks we'll be sharing great DIY pumpkin decorating ideas from some of our favorite bloggers.
Artist Deann Hebert is a true Southern gem. Having grown up on a farm in rural Alabama, she’s a comforting mix of down-to-earth, genuine, confident and talented, so it comes as no surprise that her 19th century family farmhouse in Brentwood, TN evokes the same values and old-world charm.
I miss the days when fall meant a brand new school year and a fresh start. I would always get new binders, notebooks and boxes of pencils and then try to convince my mom that I needed a new pair of shoes to complete the look.
Rachel Khoo is one of my favorite food creatives. She is a television personality, as well as a cookbook author, and has run her own one-table restaurant out of her little Paris kitchen (which happens to be the name of her third cookbook and her first television series!
For the past 10 years, my favorite “down time” activity has been watching TV. Whenever I have some spare time to myself, settling into the couch with a pet on either side has been my preferred method of stress relief.

Sometimes a smaller space is all you need to edit down to discover what is most important in life. Designer, stylist and artist Paige Morse discovered just that when she decided to renovate, and then move into, a tiny “casita” she built in her backyard.
With every new generation in every city across the country, there comes a time when people feel the urge to get away from it all.
One of my favorite things about living in Upstate New York is getting to meet all of the wonderful, creative people who call this region home.
I’ve been a resident of Upstate New York for over a year now, but until recently, I have been shamefully behind on familiarizing myself with this beautiful region.
Finding an apartment with a working fireplace is a big deal here in New York. If you can find a beautiful old mantel, you’re in luck, but if you can find a working fireplace, you’ve hit the jackpot.
Fall is upon us, which brings crisp air, the coziest of clothes, delicious treats and lots of gatherings with our favorite people.
Button + string envelopes have to be one of my very favorite envelope details. I go back and forth between using one of two methods to create the look, depending on what tools I have on hand and how much time I care to put into project.
Some of my favorite designs are ones that bring an unexpected, handcrafted element to an everyday object. Oakland-based ceramist Sarah Kersten’s work does just this, pushing the boundary between the functional and the artistic, the commonplace and the extraordinary.
It will come as no surprise that, when it comes to design, I can be a bit of a junky. The bigger, the badder, the crazier, the better.
