A divine recipe.

by & filed under Portraiture.

Recently, I started following Athena Calderone who is a talented interior designer but also posts some seriously delicious recipes.

Her handle on Instagram is @eyeswoon, and her website is beautiful too.

Inspired by a recent post, this past Friday we made her divine white beans and citrus roasted fennel dish. It was a no-brainer for me, because I believe white beans and fennel were just created to be together, and I couldn’t stop thinking about the dish since saw the post.

The final verdict? The aroma was incredible, made my entire apartment smell like a restaurant in the Mediterranean, and the dish itself was mouthwatering. I’d recommend serving it with fish or chicken, though we ate it alone. Well, paired with champagne. And it was perfection.

Wallpaper — yay or nay?

Most people have a love/hate relationship with wallpaper. It can be gorgeous and add just the right touch to a room, but can also be a serious pain to put up and worse, take down.

I’ve been bouncing back and forth between wanting to wallpaper a few special nooks in my apartment. I absolutely love the look of a bold, beautiful wall, and with all the current, easier peel and stick options, I think I am ready to commit.

I think I’m going to start with a wall in my bedroom.  I seem to be hooked on the “watercolor” look. This grey ombre look is very sophisticated and this blush/green wallpaper makes a statement.

There was a great article on wallpaper in Apartment Therapy a few weeks back, check it out
