My friend Jenny is a wine consultant and together we threw an outdoor dinner highlighting the wines of Napa Valley, along with hearty, easy, grilled food and bonfires on either side of the dinner table. I wrote about our joint Summer Bonfire Feast last month, and today Jenny’s back to share more about the wines she paired with the meal. These are GOOD recommendations.

Pow! Artist and architect Didier Faustino installed a comic-style orange starburst at La Maison Bloc in Paris. Continuing the 26-year tradition of creating installations at the concrete and stone home, Faustino also has a lighting installation set up inside.
“It’s not comfortable.” “It’s famous Dad, it’s called the Womb Chair.” “Oh… wait… am I sitting in it upside down?” Welcome back to the great Dad and Daughter Style Cure for 2014. This week, I went on a treasure hunting expedition with my style-free-zone Dad, in an attempt to get some kind of idea as to how he would like to decorate what he is now referring to as his “Man Cave,” the bedroom he will be kicked into by my mother if he snores too much.
Here’s everything, and we mean EVERYTHING you need to get inspired for Halloween. It’s a collection of some of our greatest holiday ideas and finds for decorations, costumes, parties and crafts — all in one place. Check it out and make this October 31st your best one yet!
This year’s Cure isn’t for me, it’s for my Dad. Recently retired, not quite sure what to do with himself, and kicked out of his bedroom because he snores too much — it’s time Dad gets a little space for himself. But how do you get a straight answer about style out of someone who, in his own words, defines his own look as “embarrassing?”

There’s really nothing more magical than childhood, so it seems quite fitting when I come across a child’s room that feels more like a wonderland than a simple spot to sleep. Maybe it’s the twinkle lights or perhaps it’s the unicorn, but there’s something about this sweet nursery that is just so dreamy. Read on to find about more about George’s magical woodland nursery…
When was the last time your homework was to hit your favorite spots around town (or the web) for some professional-level inspiration scouting? Well, it is now! It should definitely be a good time, but don’t underestimate its importance. The images you’ll gather will help you to confidently build your design plan and you’ll be discovering more about your decor preferences while getting ideas that you can pull from later – it’s like getting a glimpse of your future style!
