I've been trying to up my interior photography game. The subway and penny round tiles make this bathroom one of my favorites. You can read more about the before and after on the blog. A wide angle lens has been a game changer for me. Thanks @foxglove.home for encouraging me to use my original photos. It was just what I needed to push myself creatively. Interior design by me. :)
So many beautiful flowers today at the farmer's market! For one reason or another these little cuties didn't make it into a larger bouquet. That's okay. Sometimes it's better to stand out from the bunch. ;) xo Whitney
I took this behind the scenes photo at the home and studio of @bebekadesign. I love how the natural light brings out the vibrant colors in the yarn! I'm looking forward to seeing what this piece will become.
I'm working on a designer feature for the @manoucheshop blog and the topic of midcentury design came up. Specifically how design from this time period celebrated the materials used. I think that's why I love farm-to-table, designer-to-closet and earth-to-skin so much. Each movement celebrates the ingredients and materials used as well as the people involved in their creation. This chair came into being in 1959 and spent 58 years in my grandmother's home before coming to live with our family last year. xo Whitney
I've been living in my work space most days since the beginning of the year formulating the best body scrub ever! This week in particular has been devoted to my soon-to-launch ecommerce & Etsy shops. I'll keep you posted. In the meantime you can check out bld (blend) earth-to-skin sugar body scrub @manoucheshop. Here's one waiting to go home with a new friend.
I picked this sweet bouquet up from the Oak Park Farmer's Market yesterday. I think about the beauty of flowers and can't help feel that part of their glory is their unapologetic bloom - and only when the time and conditions are right. Nature illustrates a healthy relationship with time for us impatient humans. xo Whitney
This nasturtium flower is* edible, beautifully aromatic and garnished the amazing farm-to-table salad I had @pondhillfarm. *Was. Our kiddo ate it with gusto - it had a little kick!
@symonsgeneralstore Has transported me to the days of my youth with their beautiful bountiful candies and the best bloody mary mix in Northern Michigan.
