Living With Great Style

on the menu: lemon-thyme soda

There really isn’t anything like a summer drink. As we approach the holiday weekend that kicks off lemonade stands in our neighborhood, summer travel and gorgeous weather (let’s hope). I thought “why not post one of my new go-to drinks?” It’s easy, only calls for a few ingredients and most importantly it’s delicious. I guarantee any family member or guest that you serve in your home will love it. I bet they’ll even ask you for the recipe as they walk out the door.

Enjoy + cheers friends!


1 1/2 cups sugar 
2 cups of water 
1 oz. fresh thyme
Juice of 6 lemons
Soda water


Bring the sugar and water to a boil, then add the thyme and let steep until cool. Pass through a fine strainer. In an ice-filled glass, combine 1 1/2 ounces of the thyme syrup with 1/2 ounce of lemon juice.

a brand new week . . .

Monday has arrived and although I’m excited for what it has in store, it’s a little bittersweet because this weekend was wonderful. It was filled with spending time with family which was blissful, going to my favorite shops that I miss dearly (found a new favorite – Unaand most importantly, celebrating the marriage of my brother-in-law and new sister-in-law – I’m so happy she’s officially part of the family. I wish the weekend could have lasted longer. 

A few things I’ve been loving – this stunning fabric we might use in a clients home, an oldie but goodie necklace that I can’t stop wearing, windy SF days have called for bundling up with my charcoal scarf and lastly, this stunning notebook was given to me at Catherine Kwong’s SF Decorators Showcase soiree (it’s already filled with little to-do lists)

Cheers to a new week – I have a feeling it’s going to be a good one since a three day weekend is in my future.

it’s friday!

What a fabulous week it has been – work has been refreshingly productive with lots of fun and exciting projects, nights were spent out enjoying dinners and events with friends and now we’re off to Portland for my brother-in-law’s wedding. We’re excited to go home to see friends and family. It’s going to be a fantastic weekend of celebrating!

Hope all of you have a lovely weekend where ever it might take you! See you back here on Monday – tata!

xx, Caitlin
