January has been a no shopping month for me. As the pandemic is still raging, I also haven’t been on any trips or out to eat. Therefore, I have turned my attentions to cleaning and organizing our home, and our kitchen is first home. Some selective pruning and rearranging later, and these cooking/baking drawers and cabinets are ready to go.
When we were in Maine last fall, I went to the Le Creuset outlet and fell in love with the Marine color. I came home with a few pieces in that color way, along with a lilac grill pan. Is it possible to be in love with cookery?
We rented an adorable cabin for a long weekend upstate, and I really didn’t want to leave when it was over. The house had the cutest decor, and it was a great vacation away from the hustle of the city.
The little floral painting came home with me. Can you spot it?
A gorgeous Japanese knife and some adorable French coquettes
since i barely leave the house these days, i thought i would take advantage of the parachute sale to buy some new linens for our bedroom. the cloud cotton quilt and matching shams are so amazingly soft, and i love the rumpled white linen for summer. i still decided to stick to the gray and white scheme, but the darker gray on the inside of the quilt adds a nice contrast. i also like folding the duvet at the base of the bed, since it gives a neater overall appearance.
over the years, my favorite anniversary gift to give has been photo books by artifact uprising. we have been fortunate to see some magnificent places, and this ensures that the photos just don’t live on my phone. as a bookbinding freak, i love the fabric covers and thick, matte paper the company offers. these are definitely books we hope to have forever.
flowers from the market, lipstick that came in the most stunning packaging, and a new floral paris inspired candle are some of the small things that are making me happy this winter.
my post from the holidays made me realize that i never did a dining area reveal. while this area will still change over time as we collect more art from our travels, it makes me ridiculously happy to eat at as is. the lamp is from drew barrymore’s collection for walmart and fits in perfectly without blocking the art.
