Stunning Penthouse by Tobi Fairley

We're back from a sunny and warm two weeks in Florida.  It was so nice to get away and thaw out from the (never ending) chill and ice of New England- hopefully things will start looking and feeling like spring around here soon!

While we were in Florida, I managed to get a lot accomplished with our vacation home's decor- (which I posted over on Instagram)- I think we're getting close to finishing this project in the next few months.  Always on the look out for beautiful inspiration, I found myself returning to this fabulous penthouse designed by Tobi Fairley again and again.

First spotted over at Rue Magazine, I went right to Tobi's portfolio to see more, and then over to Tobi's Houzz page, where many of the design sources and products used throughout are listed.

Truly inspired by it all, but especially the idea of adding a rolling ladder component to our kitchen, and perhaps a fabulous brass sputnik (obsessed with this one!) somewhere soon as well!


Cooking Class Favorites

1  // //  3  // // 5

A few weeks ago I attended a Birthday cooking class party at Sur La Table. This was a really fun idea for a party (we made our own healthy lunch) and a great opportunity for a cooking novice like myself to try out a few new gadgets and pans before purchasing them.

While I already knew about and even own (and love using) the Silpats and Global chef knife, the garlic and vegetable peelers not to mention this amazing non-stick pan were great little upgrades to my kitchen arsenal. Effortlessly tackling the recipes we made that day is a whole other story...but I'm trying!

New Brand To Love: Tallulah

Excited to talk about this new beautiful American lifestyle brand, Tallulah, started by interior designer Mary McGee.  The collection, comprised of beautiful fabrics hand-dyed by women in various African countries, includes: "home accessories, stylish furnishings, and admired vintage pieces. Inspired by antiques, art deco, rattan, and lucite, Tallulah blends old world artisanship with modern luxury, resulting in one-of-a-kind statement pieces. The collection is timeless, pairing vibrant African print with American styles that are minimal and classic."

I love that every season Tallulah invests a portion of its proceeds in education, health, and environmental initiatives to create powerful change in the lives of those most in need. You can read more about Tallulah's mission statement here.

Tallulah wants to see your favorite way to style a table - any table! Tag #Stylemetallulah on Twitter and Instagram for a chance to win a package of Tallulah cocktail napkins. Tallulah will announce their favorite look April 1st
