Seasonal Feast: 72% Cacao, 100% Love

This post has very little to do with interior design, but the topic is still very close to my heart; chocolate. This year for Valentines, instead of the usual box of chocolates, put together a medley of your (or your loved one’s) favorite chocolate bars and wrap it all up with a red silk ribbon.

Field Trip: The White, Serene Office of Everlane

A Corner of My Home: Airing My Dirty Laundry

Most Wanted: For the Office

Upon returning to work after the holidays, I started the year off with a thorough cleaning at the office. I went through my files, threw out old samples, reorganized the shelves and even did a computer clean up by unsubscribing from email lists and erasing random things that had collected on the desktop.
