I like Easter for the pastels and the chocolate. #easter
Check out the cute sushi candles I picked up while in LA. You can find them for a wallet-friendly $1.50 at Abbot Kinney’s Tortoise General Store, which sells beautiful Japanese pottery, kitchenware, paper and other adorable home goods.
I’m not going to Coachella, but if I was, I’d stay here. The Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs was designed by architects Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat and features a vibrant color palette reminiscent of a desert sunset. I need to plan a trip here soon!
My Easter brunch was such a success, especially my tiny egg vases a la Martha Stewart. I used a porcelain egg crate I found on sale at Williams Sonoma instead of egg cups, but the idea was the same. I’m not much of a crafter, but this one was pretty doable.
A beautiful arrangement of ranunculus, tulips and daisies from Saipua in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The adorable flower and soap shop was just a short stroll from my old apartment and has recently become the go-to florist for the Manhattan fashion crowd.
Hydrangeas and roses at Bottega Louie, one of my favorite downtown Los Angeles restaurants. Order the portabella fries, the fettucine belmondo, the Moulin Rouge cocktail and grab a box of pretty pastel macaroons to go!
A dried flower and parchment paper flower arrangement from Flores del Sole will last until next Easter. Available on Etsy here.
Peonies! My absolute favorite flowers from my absolute favorite San Francisco flower shop, Birch. The store also sells unique gifts and hard-to-find European magazines.
How could I not include Martha, the Queen of Entertaining? I’m thinking I’ll dye the eggs to match the flowers. For once, a Martha Stewart craft that actually looks doable.
Since it has been so rainy over the past week, I’ve been indoors and had some serious DIY on my mind. I’m so inspired by this spray paint cutlery by UK crafter and interiors maven, Sania Pell. Though the concept is a little impractical for eating, the silverware could be framed and used as a bright kitchen decoration.
Though I not religious, I’m getting really excited about hosting a big Easter brunch with friends. I’m brainstorming table themes and am loving these floral trays from Thomas Paul. The collection, called Florilegium, is also available on cute coasters.
I just bought myself a subscription to Anthology Magazine. If you’re unfamiliar, you can check out a digital preview on the mag’s website. It is such a great resource for interior decorating and travel!
