SUMMERTIME

Happy Wednesday everyone! Just back from a wonderful vacation in Spain with family + friends where I enjoyed the beaches, countryside and the Mallorcan cuisine (posts to come).

Next, a short camping trip in the Sierras to close out summer and then I’ll be back sharing design ideas and photos from my travels.

Have a wonderful day!

 

HAPPY FRIDAY! I LOVE KITCHEN DESIGN AND TODAY I’M SHARING  5 OF MY FAVORITES. THEY’RE ALL SO GORGEOUS — I STILL CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHICH ONE I LIKE BEST.

Happy Sunday!

Happy Friday! If you’re looking for a place to unplug, unwind & get healthy in a gorgeous setting then the The Ranch Malibu is the place to go. I came across it several years ago because I love the work of Scott Shrader who did the landscape design for the The Ranch. However, as you’ll see in the photos below the interior design is just as beautiful!

Have a great Weekend!

When my girlfriends and I were in Laguna Beach a couple of weeks ago, we thought the idea of spending an entire day cooking a big meal, sipping wine and listening to good music sounded like an excellent way to spend a Saturday. So this past weekend we decided to try it out by inviting family & friends to help prepare an Italian feast.

The Menu:

Cheese & meat platter

Ravioli with sausage filling

Sausage Carbonara 

Caprese salad

Mix green salad

Grilled zucchini

Tuscan steak

Limoncello Cake

Even though my house wasn’t perfect, and I should have spent half the day doing laundry, I’m glad I decided not pay attention to any of that and just enjoy an afternoon with family, friends and really good food. Cheers to taking more time out of our daily duties to enjoy long meals with family & friends!

Happy Thursday!

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I’m sharing one of my favorite houses in Mexico — El Mirador House. Located in Valle de Bravo, a popular vacation spot just two hours southwest of Mexico City, El Mirador is a 5,000 square foot home by CC Arquitectos.
