I see you Zara Home...

While it feels wrong comparing Zara to Richard Ginori,

I am going to go ahead and do it.  It was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw these botanical dinner plates from Zara Home.  It is as close as I will ever get and you can put it in the dishwasher or microwave. You can drop it and not shed a tear. It also cost $7.90, which would be reasonable for an even an unattractive plate. You have about a 20 minute window before they sell out. Best wishes!

London kitchen inspiration

I am on a huge English country kick and Marisa Hermer's kitchen is really doing it for me these days. The perfect amount of English charm without the twang.

Less is more, in this case.

I have been working on a project all afternoon and I need to get something off my chest. 

I do not like tile. Can we stop using it? It is expensive and cold. Too shiny.  I can tolerate something small on the bathroom floor because I am practical. Other than that, I just do not see the point. Oh, and showers of course. Speaking of showers, I miss shower curtains. Mainly because they hide tile. 
2017, let's make a pact. Less tile, more this (see below)
