I'm just your regular undercover cat lady with a deep DEEP love for all things design related, farmer's markets, anything that involves running, kicking a ball, or pedaling real fast, organizing, European adventures with my best friend, cooking, eating (especially chocolate peanut butter ice cream) and being a vegetarian! Saving the world one meal at a time :)

Here you will find a mash up of my favorite things: interiors, architecture, graphic design, photography, nature, art, fashion, food, food, food, bold geometric patterns, natural textures, and maybe a kitty or two (or three).

If you have any questions feel free to shoot me an email. I always link images back to their source, but if you'd like me to take down an image of yours just let me know!

John and Juli of the blog Kitka (who also own Mjolk) go on the most amazing adventures. This isn’t the best picture to represent that at all, I just like it, but it was from a recent trip they took to NYC. Definitely go check out their blog.

Here are the latest images of the Jason Volenec-designed restaurant, Tertulia, in which I assisted in the final stages of design. If you’re in NYC check it out! The food is AMAZING.

When I visited NYC this past spring I made a stop at Angelica Kitchen for dinner and was absolutely taken over by their menu and the atmosphere. My friend was unable to meet me for dinner so I sat by myself at their “community table” and had a fabulous experience chatting with regulars and even got the shy woman across from me talking. It was wonderful. I bring this up because I’m heading to NYC tomorrow with my class to see the Alexander McQueen show at the Met, but I’m keeping my fingers VERY tightly crossed that I can make it to Angelica Kitchen for dinner, or lunch, or a snack, before meeting up with the same friend that evening. I picked up Leslie McEachern’s (the owners) book today from the library and, of course, it doesn’t disappoint.

Ahhh! My girl crush Sibella Court has a new book out! The Stylist’s Guide to NYC! AND it’s available at Anthropologie… uh oh. Might have to make a trip there today. I’ve also been eying this book too.

Here’s a fun interview with Sibella that I just ran into on Design*Sponge.

Townhouse renovation (in NYC?) by Diana Kellogg Architects.

Interview/Background on Mast Brothers Chocolate, craft Chocolateir based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York.

What I especially love about the Mast brothers is their dedication to craft, and especially their craft in general - because who doesn’t love chocolate? They use the best chocolate, which they source themselves, package all of their chocolates by hand with tactile paper that also reflects this intimate interaction with their work, and they have even acquired their own printing press to continue their bean to bar, their hand to yours process.

A talk by Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan of Apartment Therapy.

While he spends a lot of time talking about himself and how he got to where he is now, and how he provides his “service” to the people - that being helping them create effective spaces of living - he also touches on how the focus after September 11th and the crash of the economy brought the back on to the home. There is an importance in creating a healthy, creative, and comfortable home. His blog, now run primarily by reader feedback, shows how the emphasis on sharing personal trials and tribulations yields inspiration and, ultimately, growth.


He also gives a shot out to Scandinavian design blogger Emma, who posts work that has the modern, rustic, and organic feel we often associate with “home.”
