Keeping up with the latest trends in design can often be overwhelming, especially when you’re pinching pennies, your budget too tight for the occasional furniture splurge.
I’ve called Greenpoint, Brooklyn home for the better part of a decade. This is the neighborhood that welcomed me into Brooklyn 11 years ago and continues to be the only place I feel truly at home in this big, bustling city.
I don’t think that I ever really gave textiles much of a second thought until I was in graduate school at Parsons/Cooper-Hewitt.
David Stark is the king of FUN. Whenever I want to feel inspired or get creative “outside of the box” ideas for my home or a get together, David’s site is the first place I look.
There was a moment a few years ago when I seriously considered signing up for upholstery school. I’ve always loved textiles and am constantly looking for ways to incorporate them into everything.
I’ve never been someone who was very precious with their things. I like to save up and buy things for my home that mean something to me and have stories behind them, but I also believe that objects were meant to be used and lived in, so stains and little scratches aren’t my biggest concern.
Even though I now call Brooklyn home, I have a soft spot in my heart for the architecture of my birth state.
Everyone finds motivation in different places. Some people prefer it in the form of one-on-one conversations, some enjoy books and others like to see something that combines the power of in-person talks with the ease of a play-on-demand video.

Every week when Friday rolls around, I start to think about what the weekend has in store. And primarily I’m thinking about what I will be eating.
Keeping with the theme of not turning on the oven, this week we are bringing you a great summer salad from Tyler Herald, executive chef at Napolese Pizzeria, an Indianopolis restaurant that uses the produce of more than ten local farmers on its menu. Tyler’s summer green bean salad with cherry tomatoes and peach gastrique just jumped off the page at me and I so wish I could taste it in his restaurant, but am so happy he agreed to share the recipe for it here on the column. It is a beautiful colorful salad that takes advantage of the finest produce in season now: corn, tomatoes, peaches, and green beans. I look forward to making it this weekend. If you try it out, too, please let us know!
