Hello all! It has been a busy Summer of designs. I can't wait to share some of the fun projects I have been working on. I just had to give you a quick glimpse of this vacation home in Sedona, AZ. This is going to be a VRBO vacation rental. The mission was to create a rustic modern vibe with hints of style that are unique to Sedona. Sedona is known for it's beautiful landscapes. Therefore, bringing the color pallete from the outdoors inside was key. Warm colors and rustic woods are the theme throughout. I think I'm ready to book my trip to Sedona!

I need your help picking a basket for my new tree. I have a confession I'm a first time owner of a fiddle leaf tree. Yes yes I know I specify them all the time in my designs along with the basket for my clients. Sometimes I give clients a real option sometimes a faux option when needed. Yet I finally was gifted one and I could not be more thrilled. I just hope I can keep it alive as it sits near my air vent. I feel like it's a new child I need to keep warm, give it sun and keep it watered. Now I need your help. It needs the ever so important basket. The key piece to make this statement tree have the right outfit to complete the look. Which one do you think? Here it sits looking lonely in the corner until I find the right artwork for this wall. Option 1, 2 or 3 basket?

I think one of my favorite things about being a Mom is all the Art. I don't have many original paintings in my home, but I have an abundance of their works of art. Now that my girls are home full time it finally got me motivated to create a proper art wall. My three year old wants me to hang up each and every drawing. No exceptions. When she's not looking I rotate some of her masterpieces out. My eight year old gave me a nice reminder a few weeks ago with one of her creations with a sign that says "This Won't Last Forever". Such a good reminder to us all when this feels like a long road already. Then she took it a step further by writing this in several different languages looking up the translations. Another good reminder that the whole world is in this together. Looking at what kids draw is such a great way to peek into their hearts and minds. Here's a little glimpse at our art wall that brings me so much joy. The best part is that is cost very little. I love our new Picasso quote sign "Every Child is an Artist" from the Etsy shop Glad Folk. The cork boards I got were from Target curbside pick-up.

My family has been finding comfort with food during this shut down time. Recipes that bring comfort are a must right now. I recently got a ramen recipe from a family member. We tried it out last week and it did not disappoint. I made the broth a few days ahead and kept it in the fridge for two days. The smells throughout the house were amazing. The recipe was from The Kitchn called Restaurant Style Ramen.
Another comfort favorite of ours that is pretty quick with simple and easy to find ingredients is a Loaded Chicken Pho from What's Gabby Cooking. It's a better option if your a little short on time, but want a similar comfort dish.
What recipes are you making and telling friends and family about? Recipes are such a great safe and loving thing we can share right now. I want to hear your favorites.
