oh! ber jean!

 

Today I made eggplant parmesan for the first time. I’m still collecting family recipes and trying new things out in the kitchen. This collection of photos are inspired by my favorite color, and new favorite dinner. :) They leave me with the same happy feeling of pasta, merlot… and Ryan doing the dishes.

Still mourning the loss of domino magazine, I’ve been trying to get my hands on any shelter magazine available. I know they can’t all cancel publishing because of the economy… right?

Before domino’s site was officially shut down, I saved and scanned any photos that inspired me.  I must admit I even tried buying every back issue. Unfortunately being a grown up forces me to spend those few hundred dollars on better things (lame).

Love when interiors are inspired by favorite ensembles, especially now when I’m longing for white shirt and skirt weather.

The leather dining chair, designed by Bill Katavolos, is available exclusively through Karkula.  I’m loving the inexpensive army blanket mixed with the high-end sable colored chair.

tulip field color inspiration.

I haven’t been on vacation in about four years, and I’m dying to visit the Netherlands, where my Dad’s family is originally from. I never knew that tulips actually grew in fields like this, but seeing it gives me a whole new appreciation for this everyday store bought flower.

happy monday!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated with vintage umbrellas. It seems that even on the rainiest of April days, they can make you have a little ‘spring’ in your step. Being that it’s supposed to rain for the next few days in New York, I think the thunder storm will make me sleep easier… that, and this cheerfully whimsical image.
