Curator Picks - 4/23

You figure if The Coveteur features an interior designer then the interiors have got to be amazing, right? Well this one doesn't disappoint. Check out the feature today of Brian Gluckstein, a Canadian interior designer with one amazing closet. Everything is organized by color - something I wish I had the time to do (and maintain).

The very talented Jenny at Little Green Notebook did a Sputnik DIY chandelier last year that I always wished I could duplicate. One of her readers, Kristin, just recently sent in photographs of her beautiful home featuring the chandelier. How glorious does this room tour look?

SF Girl by Bay posted the most gorgeous secret hideout in her back garden this morning. It's a teepee filled with blankets and pillows where she goes to shut out the world. When I have a garden, I'm adding a teepee to my wish list (after my vegetable garden).

Strawberries? Check. Jam? Check. Coconut and rice? Check and check. I'm making this lovely looking Strawberry Jam Coconut Rice Pudding from Joy the Baker very soon. Sounds perfect for an afternoon snack or a more healthy dessert choice (so I don't feel guilty eating ice cream as I watch The Biggest Loser tomorrow night). There is another yummy looking strawberry recipe from Adrianna at A Cozy Kitchen. Travel over there for some Strawberries and Cream Scones. I love that the strawberries are still in large pieces in these scones, which gives me a lovely unfinished, not uniform look.

Molly over at Orangette posted a recipe for Pistachio-Citrus Pound Cake that looks divine. She's expecting her first baby (a girl!) this fall, so you know whatever gets the pregnant lady thumbs up has to be pretty delicious.

Holly Becker at decor8 wrote a really poignant post about the digital age and photography and how we are preserving (or not preserving) our memories. What do we really do with our photographs after we release them into worlds of facebook and instagram? She suggests making photo books and points the reader towards Paislee Press to make interesting and creative photo books that will preserve your memories for future generations. I also like Pinhole Press and used that at Christmas to make calendars for each of my family members.

  1. I definitely want to print more photos - especially since I use my phone more than my digital camera anymore. Must take a look at those sites! I LOVE the calendar idea :)
