in the bag.

the days of packing lunches for our little ones are far ahead but in gold foil seems a great way to get thru the day, don’t you think?

indoors or out.

i love the light, look and feel of a lush greenhouse, and the fact that you truly can’t tell if this space is indoor or out makes it so inviting {especially for entertaining!}

elderflower sips.

christina & i had the privilege of having this delicious elderflower beverage to sip and share at our recent Madewell event and I just couldn’t get enough. love the packaging and simplicity, straight from England.

with a tinge of unusual briskness in the air this past week, these rustic nuts instantly brought my mind to fall.

sweet as honey.

i was so excited to learn that our friend hannah is working on her very own cookbook! this lovely citrus tart {of hers!} was the perfect spring celebration.

eat in.

I wouldn’t mind not bringing the family into formal dining with an eat-in kitchen like this. The high ceilings and rustic beams help to elevate even the most simple of meals.

a place to dine.

loving every bit of this minimal styling and use of reflective elements to bounce light across the space.

nothing new.

this hobnail milk glass is nothing new, but hey, is anything i love really all that new? i can’t keep this stuff out of my head lately and have been envisioning pieces scattered around my rooms but this cluster keeps me focused and collecting.

classicly new

 

for me it is about the classic clean lines made new again. this classic gravy boat originally designed by eva zeisel in 1952 is a perfect example. a timeless design now carried by crate and barrel.

sticks & stirs.

love these simple hand-carved stirring spoons, perfect for a cozy beach cottage {is it summer yet?}

twig + stir

twigs + modern. perfect to pair with any of your newest dishware or your vintage pairings.

fashionable fridge.

the only thing cooler than a fridge is one this fashionable. black & gold makes certain the food never wins top honors in your kitchen.

rose gold

gold flatware is such a fun little mix + match on a table with your other accessories!

beautiful brass.

brass is so chic, so lasting and so here to stay. i love the simplicity of these brass beauties to open any beverage.
