Today we’ve been packing up the last boxes getting ready for tomorrow’s big move. Although it’s only a few blocks away. I can’t believe we will be spending our last night in our first home, but change is good. It’s a little odd sitting here looking around seeing everything off the walls and boxes stacked up – it really shows me that no matter where you live the treasures you bring into a home make it feel personal. I’ve been spending almost this entire week working from the new apartment and it already feels like home. We’ve unpacked a few key things that have made it feel like ours already. I’m thrilled with the way everything is coming together bit by bit.
See you all back here on Monday!

This beautiful vignette of books stacked on a table.
I’m all about black and white ensembles. This look is perfect for summer.
I’ve been lusting over Moroccan blankets for a long time, but this blue version needs to be in our new apartment.
Simple and clean kitchens are my favorite.
And lastly, this top is just plain gorgeous!
Recently, I have found myself attracted to deep, saturated, intense, inky blue tones. It can really be a vibrant and dramatic statement. While on the hunt for bedroom inspiration images for a new project, I came across this bedside vignette and just fell in love! John Robshaw’s printed, woven, stitched, and dyed textiles have always been a favorite bedding option. Adding a cluster of Jennifer Ament’s unique lino-cut prints above the bed is a perfect finishing touch. I hope this week’s Room Anatomy selections set your wheels in motion for a space of your own!

We’re off to the San Francisco Symphony Gala tonight, which both Eric and I are excited about attending – I love an excuse to dress up. I’ve been searching for a little inspiration and thought this outfit would be perfect . . . if only all of these items were in my closet. Do you have a go-to dress or outfit for fancy events? My closet is lacking in that department. Off to go dig through my packed clothes, fingers crossed I find something!

Today, Susan of Peas and Love has made a tasty treat you can make for a weekday snack at the office or when you’re lounging at home on the weekends. I’ve been a longtime fan of parsnips – I cook them in the oven with a little olive oil and they are scrumptious, but I’ve been looking for new ways to cook them. When I asked Susan if she has any other recipes she immediately thought of her Parsnip Chip recipe – boy are these good. Be warned . . . once you eat a few, you won’t be able to stop.
3 Parsnips, sliced thinly (I recommend using a Mandolin)
2 Tbsp Canola Oil
1 tsp Chili Powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350. On a baking sheet, evenly spread out sliced parsnips and pour over oil, coating evenly with your hands. Then sprinkle over salt, pepper and chili powder, and bake for 20 minutes until crispy and slightly browned. Let cool for 10 minutes, then serve right away! (Note: these will still taste good the next day, but will not be as crunchy.)
