skona hem magazine. this eclectic and artful home belongs to norwegian ceramist maria Øverbye with her husband and three daughters. the house was originally built as a school in 1893. i mean how cool are the little vignettes, white painted floors, beautiful photographs, wood furniture, and industrial lighting that add so much warmth and personality to an edited space.

will post more details later, but josh and i loved just holding hands walking around the city with no time constraints. brooklyn flea market, atlantic ave in brooklyn and stopping in some of the coolest stores i have ever been in, chelsea market, the high line park, the meatpacking district, shopping in soho, eating almost every 2 hours because new york restaurants are so tempting with their atmospheres, good food and the chance to people watch. my parents were so sweet to watch the girls and i was so happy to come home, but it was a great chance to get stimulated by some cool design and break the winter doldrums.

i picked up a new march 2011 copy of country living because i saw there was a travel guide to brooklyn, new york and we're heading there this weekend. my subscription for country living had just ran out and i decided not to renew it and what-do-you-know, but this is like the best issue ever for design ideas. serves me right for not renewing it. anyway, i have highlighted some of my favorite products and stores that were introduced to me via country living. hope you enjoy and get some new ideas!

so i know it's a little early for bathing suits, but i waited too late last year and wanted to get a crackin' early this year. the above swim suits are my favorites for toddler girls that are nautical inspired. i prefer the classic red and navy over pink and purple. i think i might even order karoline and rory's suits now while i'm thinking about it so i have more options to choose from.

anyway, i made the following recipes for a quick dinner party last week and it turned out great. i would highly recommend them:
white turkey chili from whole foods recipes. i doubled the recipe. the grocery store i went to did not have canned tomatillos so i bought a large jar of salsa verde (hot) and poured it in instead of using a jalapeno and tomatillos. it was spicy and hot just like a chili should be.
lemony cabbage-avocado slaw from whole foods recipes. this was so refreshing with the chili. i used all the ingredients it called for except the hemp seeds. i wasn't going to start a wild goose chase with these on this island that doesn't have many specialty food stores.
grapefruit yogurt cake from smitten kitchen. see image above. grapefruits are in season so it was a lovely way to use what i had bought in bulk at bj's wholesale club for a tart dessert.

love these industrial pieces in the interior shots above. makes me want to go back to my high school gym locker room so i can haggle with the p.e. teacher in hopes of bringing some lockers home.
