Unfortunately the shiny pages detract considerably from Quentin Bacon’s much photography in conjunction with create the book heavy plus hard to deal in conjunction. Otherwise, it truly is a gem! Need more Southern recipes? attempt A Gracious Plenty by John T. Edge / The Gift of Southern Cooking via Edna Lewis plus Scott Peacock. [Quick note from Grace = my best–loved southern cookbook of everything time is Frank Stitt’s Southern Table– it’s seriously worth checking elsewhere!}

attempt it plus let me recognize what you believe! You can find elsewhere additional about the accompanying TV program via visiting Jamie‘s site for clips with episode guides. The eventual Student Cookbook via Signe Johansen, James Ramsden, Fiona Beckett with Guy Millon (Absolute Press) We saw Tiffany Goodall‘s Student Cookbook earlier this month. Fiona Beckett‘s version is a piece additional advanced, has additional diverse recipes from basic dishes to additional complex, nevertheless still caters to those plus minimum kitchen skills, with a focus on little budgets. This book teaches you how to cook with no pre–cooked constituents. The three scholar chefs who co–authored the tome (2 of whom are male!) share their insights also afford guidance on creating budget—conscious substitutions. It is the result of a thriving online student brotherhood. Guy‘s tale regarding the serious of kitchen safety has built an indelible impersonation on me. It‘s a ideal beginer cookbook.
Image above: Sarah put together her half of the office in a fit of energy over the course of one day. Since they can’t paint their apartment, Sarah relies on punches of color, such as the “Oh What Fun!” art she found at a thrift store. “It says how I feel about my work.” The desk was cobbled together with IKEA pieces. The chair was a gift.
We’ve all been there. Faced with a room that desperately needs an update, but a wallet that desperately needs a fill-up. Redesigning a room doesn’t come cheap, especially when factoring in all-new furniture and fixtures. Oftentimes, one might find themselves ogling over home goods in shop catalogues, but opting to wait a little longer on the renovation because of their ultimate price tag. When Felicia Brickey of Little Brick Home encountered this issue with her kitchen, however, she was undeterred. Instead of handing over an arm and a leg for big-bucks designer furnishings, she opted to get the same look through the DIY route, furnishing the room with a mixture of self-made creations and budget finds. The results, achieved for a little shy of $400, are even better than the pricy alternative. The space went from drab and ordinary to elegant and charming. Check out all of the pictures plus links to the DIYs and product sources after the jump!
So many of my childhood memories revolve around my parents’ dining room. It’s played host to all four of us kids’ high school and college graduation dinners, 15 years worth of Christmas breakfasts, and every birthday of mine since I was 13. Painted in a rich cranberry color, the room has become a symbol for laughter and bonding, and a place where both sides of my family have cried tears of joy and sadness. That being said, I’m never surprised when other homeowners gush over how important their dining room has been to them, too. Over time, their spaces have gathered more and more memories, each one becoming permanently etched in the grain of a wooden table or the cushion of a chair.
Bedrooms with walls clad in reclaimed wood have a certain sense of tranquility, an inviting aura, and natural charisma that sets them apart from the mundane. Turning even the sophisticated contemporary bedroom into a relaxing, personal sanctuary, reclaimed wood walls make a big impact both in terms of aesthetics and the mood of the space they adorn. With that in mind, here are 25 of the very best bedrooms that have embraced this trend gleefully. Hopefully they will inspire you to do the same as well!
I’d like to consider myself an inventive thinker, but after looking at these file cabinets, I have to say that I never would have thought to transform them the way Matthew did. Matthew had been looking for minimalist metal planter boxes for a while and when he spotted these file cabinets for 50 cents a piece (!) at a local thrift shop, the answer was clear. This project is so simple to recreate and I love the clean and simple results. You can read about his whole process here, and if you’re lucky enough to find a similar steal on file cabinets, you should definitely consider this a great way to put them to use. Great job, Matthew!
Last month I decided to live out my dining room fantasy by rounding up 25 of my favorite dining rooms with round tables, and today I’m finishing with the rest! These 30 dining rooms show how beautiful (and dramatic) square and rectangular tables can be, and all of the different ways you can decorate and light them. If you’re looking for dining room ideas, this post will definitely keep you busy for a while. I hope you enjoy it! xo, grace
This dining room makeover from Sarah is definitely high drama. She took a once-dreary window with sad blinds and transformed it into a wall of gorgeous textile heaven. I love her mixture of prints, the dark walls, the oversized mirror and the elegant, minimal chairs. It’s all working for me. She even painted her own Cy Twombly-inspired artwork, which turned out quite well! Sarah made some shrewd decorating decisions and I’m blown away by the impressive transformation. Great work, Sarah!
