Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley September 9, 2016

I love this time of year, this lingering transition from summer to fall. The weather is still very warm here in Northern California, we’ve had a lot of hot days yet I can see the leaves on the trees are starting to turn. It’s beautiful, that floatation between seasons.

I’ve got a lot of my plate this weekend, soccer games, family get togethers, and in between a little craft project stimulated by an idea I had with a creative burst of energy. Who knows if it will be a success or failure, the point is to try, to execute, when creativity or artistic expression calls to you.

 Don’t miss the before and afters on this full home makeover.

I love every inch of this Atherton home.

Such lovely layered neutrals in this elegant townhouse.

An effective way to control your email inbox.

Bookmarked: 20 stovetop recipes you can make in under 30 minutes.

The salary you need to purchase a modest home in a major US city.

Leave it to Rick to share the best and worst of Europe.

A friend sent this with me: consider life is a dance, not a journey.



  1. Hi Kate!

    So happy to know that you liked our clients’ Atherton home!
    Thank you so much for sharing it with your friends :)



  2. Love the inspiration of bar stools. I’m having a heck of a time finding some I love and a new table. Re-designed my kitchen but only have 7 feet for 3 stools and some kind of table. Wish I had vision like you ladies. Everything I find is too big.

  3. Thanks for sharing useful information. I like the fresh kitchen as in the picture. I try to consider life is a dance, not a journey. I’m looking forward to reading your post.
