First Impressions

Seeing just a glimpse into these homes certainly does make me want to peek around the corner to discover what design treats reside beyond the foyer.

Accessory Obsession: Chinese Lanterns

Since my visit to China in 2001, when I returned to the States with stacks of lanterns folded into my luggage, I've become enchanted by using these delicate paper light sources in design. String them along a patio for whimsical lighting or hang one in an unexpected corner for a dreamy touch. Whether in a range of hues or elegant all-white, lanterns are a perfect eclectic touch for your garden or home.

Seashells by the Seashore

"The cure for anything is salt water-
sweat, tears, or the sea."
-Isak Dinesen

When was the last time you put your ear to a seashell?

Take a few quiet minutes today to recall the peace that being in the ocean can bring you. Pop open some Coppertone, put some Bob Marley on the Pod, and close your eyes. See, your pulse is slowing already.

A Sweet Treat

One of the easiest and tastiest desserts I've been making lately is this crostata. What's not to love about a dessert that possesses all of the comfort of apple pie with none of the fuss?
