Last week I spent a few days in San Francisco attending festivities taking place around the Remodelista book launch and holiday market, and generally cavorting with the “-istas” who live in California. On one morning, Alexa and I trekked to the wholesale flower market to choose florals (and fruits!) to scatter around the market. We went back to Alexa’s house afterward to prep the flowers and in the process, propped them in whatever spaces we could find to fill with water.
Here, a few photos of Alexa’s sweet space, because I’m feeling bored of my own and I figure we could all use a dose of inspiration for the impending new year. Agreed?
Artichokes, taking a bath on the stovetop.
Preserved lemons made by Sarah on Alexa’s genius makeshift marble countertop, made of three marble pastry boards, end on end.
I’m a sucker for white dishes. And it’s confirmed, I need a goat hair bristle dust brush. You too?
Pears. An assortment of lovely kitchen accessories. You see the trend? Beautiful and useful.
Alexa’s knife block, painted white. And leather drawer pulls to match.
