Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley September 12, 2014

Welcome to the weekend friends! I’m so looking forward to getting more sleep tomorrow, I’ve been so exhausted because of this fitness boot camp I’ve been doing and it is kicking my butt! I find myself crawling into bed extra early just to recover, oh to have the energy I had in my twenties…

I spent a few hours doing research on kitchens this week, we have not one but two to tackle this fall, one at the Nevada house and a second for Matt’s late grandmother’s small home which needs to be sold but the kitchen is dated and in need of upgrades. Decisions decisions!! I’ll have more to share on both soon.

Here are some favorite links from the week!

white kitchen copper pendants

Speaking of kitchens, yes please to this black and white kitchen with wood and marble countertops and copper pendants.

43 Pinteresty things you’ll see at the Pinterest offices.

Such a pretty dish pantry.

Go ahead, design a nursery for yourself.

Apples looking so good.

Vera Wang’s private office tour.

Good to know: preparing boxwoods for winter.

The myth of effortless.

Would you wear the new Apple watch?

Steve Jobs, the low tech parent.

So funny! Mental chastising at the buffet (been there) Oh and this too.


Have a lovely weekend !



  1. Those copper hanging pendant lights are EXACTLY what my wife and I need in our kitchen. We have dark marble countertops, veined lightly with natural metals, dark mahogany cabinets with brushed glass panels, stainless fixtures throughout, and we’ve been struggling with wanting to throw something in there that would make the very sedate looking kitchen POP. Any idea where these beauties came from?
