Let’s Discuss: Patterned Cement Tile

I’ve noticed a lot of kitchens and baths lately boldly employing patterned tile floors, walls and backsplashes. These tiles, mostly examples of Moroccan cement tile, are both contemporary and vintage and when mixed with modern cabinetry and details, can result in a truly showstopping look. But I have to wonder, will this look be timeless? Is it a risk worth taking in main space like a kitchen? Lets take a look at some examples and talk it through.

Snow Day Chili

(A food photographer I am not.)

Another snow day here in Boston. Yep, just pure craziness mixed with an epic amount of cabin fever in these parts.  When I’m stuck inside during storms like these I like to bake and cook a lot (providing I’ve actually had time to food shop beforehand).  Last night I made a big pot of really yummy chili chock full of veggies.  Since I’ve been doing a whole lot of NOT working out lately, eating well is important, and this dish is super healthy and nutritious while also being really good.

Fashion Friday: Dressing Up When the Temp is Down

For those that live in cold climates getting dressed in something beyond a big sweater, jeans and Uggs during this time of year can feel like torture.  How does one look nice when so many layers are required? I’ve given it some thought and here are a few outfits to keep you looking hot when the thermometer is reading cold.

This blazer is pretty genius with a zip in sweater neck, reducing bulk while keeping your neck warm!  Wear with a camisole underneath and some amazing knee high boots (I am still lusting after these so hard).

A Guide to White Paint

b93f9b7ec1600c04f878d5c0bd0fa4a1

A couple of you mentioned needing some help finding a white paint that could give you the look of the home I posted on Monday.   It’s such a wonderful look, an all white room.  The way it gives a clean backdrop allowing your furnishings, art and architectural details to take center stage is magical.  But there are a zillion shades of white, which one is right? You don’t want something too sterile or too yellow- in fact even the WSJ did an article on the struggle of finding the perfect white paint. I thought I’d chime in with my tips for going all white.

Let’s start by talking about types of whites- there are bright, very true whites,  warm whites and cool whites.  Bright whites you will see a lot on trim, woodwork and cabinetry as it’s very clean and crisp.  Warmer whites can range from very light ivory or off-white to deeper creams and cooler whites have grey or blue undertones to them.
