Our Favorite: Cookbooks

Latest  in category

Great for cooking & styling!

Bans are starting to lift and that means slowly but surely we can get back to our normal lives (safely, of course!). We can’t help but look forward to spending time with our friends and loved ones while showing them a good time, whether it be on elegantly styled patios or in the comfort of your own kitchen. We’re sharing our favorite styling tips. Starting with our favorite cookbooks, filled with recipes sure to satisfy everyone, and did we mention, they’re also great for creating a “wow,” design moment, in any kitchen.

Styling Tips

Not only do these books include so of our all-time favorite recipes, but they’re such a great choice when it comes to styling kitchen spaces. These tips our some of our favorite ways to incorporate them!

Use Fresh Fruits & Veggies

Take a trip to your local farmer’s market and pick up so fresh fruits and vegetables! Not only are you helping your local community, which is so important at this time, but they can give your space an ever so subtle pop of color. Thanks to the seasonality of fruits and veggies, you can have an ever-changing display, or you can spotlight ingredients from the recipes. 

Style with Functional Items

Next, a useful tip would be to style your cookbooks using functional items such as utensils, bowls, or mugs. This is also a great opportunity to showcase pretty glassware or canisters that hold your utensils.

Display delectables

Sure, cookbooks are great at providing us with delicious recipes, but can we talk about some of the photography featured in these? And what a better way to create a moment then to put a delectable feast on display, not to mention there are plenty of gorgeous stands ready to be set on your counter.

One Room Challenge Spring 2020 | Girl’s Bedroom Makeover Week 3

Hey, hey! Sooo…this post should have been done yesterday. But this week has been a little crazy and yesterday my team and myself (along with my husband and kids) installed a new vacation rental in Pine, AZ. It was an all-day event and by the end of the night and a water leak later, I […]

My Backyard: We Are Finally Doing Our Yard!

It’s about time this yard happened! If you have read my other project reveal posts about our interior, then you know that we purchased our current home a little over 2 years ago and the main reason we bought it was because of the backyard. The lot is about half an acre and we fell […]

Our Favorite: Stay at Home Essentials

we are still hunkering down and staying cozy during our stay at home… Many states have extended their stay at home orders into May and June. Here in Arizona we are hoping ours will over be by the end of this month, but I am doubtful that it will happen as soon as we hope […]

Interior Inspiration: Spring Color Palettes

By now, when Spring rolls around, we’re used to tones of pink, yellow, and blue pastels. While these shades are beautiful, nonetheless, seeing pastels for spring are just like seeing florals for spring, and as the great Miranda Priestly once said “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.“ That’s why, for our spring color palette, we’ve chosen muted […]
