Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley April 17, 2015

Greetings all, happy spring weekend to you! There was much progress in grandma’s kitchen remodel this week, installing the sink, faucet, and attaching hardware to the cabinets are all that remain. I’m driving out to photograph that kitchen next week but first I’m headed back to Las Vegas tomorrow to meet with plumbers, countertop fabricators, etc. for a few days. And I’m finally ordering my kitchen backsplash from a local tile vendor for that house, the colors and pattern are so amazing (squeal!) I can’t wait to feature it.

And the favorite links from the week …

Dutch doors? Yes please.

A serene lakeside home tour.

21 modern indoor/outdoor spaces.

Atta girl Sarah, where form meets function

Dying at the cuteness of these underwater photos of babies.

What? You can paint aloe plants? Cool!

2 (fitness) character traits that will guarantee success.

The Marilyn Monroe contoured lip technique.

10 locations to photograph the Golden Gate bridge. (Also Angel Island!)

Too funny, everyone’s upstairs noisy neighbor.

Star Wars is coming this Christmas! New trailer here, helloooo Han Solo.


Have a great weekend!


  1. I recommend changing the word you use after “underwater photos of babies.” I was shocked for a full 10 secs til I realized what you meant ;)

  2. Hey Kate,

    Thanks for mentioning my fitness character traits article in your weekend readings. Oh, btw..the Star Wars trailer was amazing!

    have a good one,
