Since spring is right around the corner (I’m counting down…), I purchased this teak console table that I’m using as a little potting station in my backyard. It now holds pots that I use around the house for topiaries, herbs and other small plants. It has been so fun to finally have a place to store everything, and it adds a little charm to my patio! Below you can shop some of my favorites for very basic gardening and (cache)potting for your home.
When life gives you lemons… make this maple bourbon cocktail. My mom got me hooked on this fresh cocktail after finding some homegrown, insanely juicy lemons in the neighborhood.
3 shots bourbon
2 shots fresh lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a rocks glass containing large ice cubes. Makes 2 cocktails.
This ocean-front shingled Gambrel style beach house by Patrick Ahearn (architecture) and Katie Rosenfeld (interiors) has me falling in love with color! Katie’s goal was a colorful and eclectic interior that still felt sophisticated and fresh, and it’s clear that she nailed it. I love this mixed with the classic colonial architecture.
Who doesn’t want a potting room?! In the home I have dreamed up in my head there is a big, beautiful one with a dutch door out to my big, beautiful garden! Here are a few potting rooms I’ve found that have provided inspiration. xx
I had so much fun putting Henry’s nursery together. I wanted a look that wasn’t too babyish so that we could make some of the pieces last through his “big boy” room. We went Ralph Lauren nautical – a look that will probably last with him for a while (hope ya like it, Henry!) My favorite piece is the antique pine bench. My mom bought it over 25 years ago – it got a lot of love in my childhood home and then “visited” our family friends house in Napa for the past 15 or so years. Now, it fits perfectly into Henry’s nursery and is serving as a little bookshelf.
