Mirrors are perhaps one of the most important pieces in a small space. In fact, in the world of interior styling and design, mirrors and small spaces are practically marriage mates. If you see one, the other is somewhere nearby. Mirrors are this week's inspiration
If you're entertaining friends this weekend, and want to surprise them with something different try serving Krémas.
Krémas or Crémasse, as it is sometimes spelled, is just as the name suggests - a creamy and sweet alcoholic beverage. A native of Haiti, this hugely popular drink is often served at social events. I like to call it Haitian eggnog.
I love the challenges that come with designing small spaces. Atmospheres that require hours of styling to produce in large rooms, are remarkable easy to create in tight quarters. They are naturally endowed with elements like intimacy, warmth, and ambiance. A small dining room or nook is a great place to play up all of these features. But it all starts with the table. Small dining room tables are this weeks' inspiration.
Fall is here y'all! The pleasant aromas of apples, sweet potato and pumpkin pies, toasted marshmallows, and cinnamon and nutmeg spices, all serve as gentle reminders that winter is right around the corner.
I'm not quite sure why, but every year the brisk cool air feels brand new to me. Something that warms the inside while blending hints of the harvest season is definitely in order. If you agree, then you'll love this week's Friday Fix: Yum-Rum Apple Cider.
The mere mention of Friday can trigger ideas of new explorations: shopping hauls, dinner with friends, parties and the like. Unfortunately, as our lists of responsibilities grow - job, spouse, kids, etc - most of these Friday dreams fade into obscurity.
