I realized some time ago I was drawn to design that incorporated the color pink. It made me happy when I saw it.  Pink is often an overlooked color that can be the perfect dose of boldness to infuse into a monochromatic palette or to add personality to an all white room.  It can be as subtle as a small bouquet of flowers resting on the mantle or a bold and bright pink sofa or chair. I also love it woven into rugs. The varying shades of pink is wide so you can go as bold or as soft (think pale, pale pink) as you like, either way it always works! -Callie



Happy Fourth

Happy 4th my lovely readers! I hope you have had a festive Tuesday and perhaps are still enjoying a long weekend. My daughters fell asleep before the fireworks started so I am having a peaceful evening to myself, although I can begin to hear the loud pops of fireworks in our neighborhood.

I leave you with this magical photograph of the night sky - where the colors begin to fade into the darker hue of blue. That perfect light. Happy 4th! -callie



Tahini Chocolate Cake

From her cookbook Molly on the Range, Molly Yeh's Chocolate Tahini Cake combines some of my favorite foods Chocolate + Tahini into cake form. All she did was sub the oil for tahini. I can handle that. If you aren't super skilled at baking and want to skip the candied rosemary and frosting, these are also delicious as a naked cake. Just add some whip cream or ice cream and you're done. Happy baking! -Callie

New Year, New Flooring!

Inspired by the European vintage design, DYR is finally getting rid of the carpets to make way for some lovely French oak floors! Just picture sawn-cut, wire-brushed and super wide plank (herringbone, too!) Did I also mention they look smokin' hot with white walls. EEK!!! 

SO, with any design process, when you get rid of something so prominent in your house you begin to rethink the rest of the colors in each room, furniture layout and color palette. This week's photograph find pays homage to the timeless look of oak. It WILL make you want to incorporate a little sleek vintage in your home, I swear. If you need some more inspiration check out my oak flooring pinboard. Happy Sunday everyone! -Callie
