DIY | Faux Marble Mini Bowls.

BOWLS2

I think at this point it's fair to say I like plates more than I like food. Not that I don't like food, but I really like plates, dishes, silverware, bowls, napkins... Last weekend I did some DIY "faux marble" making. I made little salt cellars for everyone at the table, so we can each have our own, and a set of three nesting bowls that can be used for rings and whatnot. It's EASY AS PIE. and I've done a "faux malachite" version before, making napkin rings.

I've been so excited to share this with you all, and I could hardly narrow it down … [Read more...]

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 3.55.41 PM

Yesterday Justina Blakeney, the woman behind such genius as a "Face the Foliage" and the awesome blog The Jungalow, released her first book: The New Bohemians. It's spectacular. The photography is by Dabito, who is AWESOME, and it features 20 homes of New Bohemians. If you've ever liked a photo of a houseplant, moroccan rug, weaving, suzani, ikat.... etc etc etc... this book is like crack cocaine.
