Weekend Reading 10.24.20

By Kate Riley October 24, 2020

During the pandemic, I’ve been teaching my teenage son to cook, and the lesson this week was the art of making simple red spaghetti sauce. I find that involving him in the cooking accomplishes two things, it gives him confidence to make other recipes for himself and he’s actually enjoying the food more. Win win!

This week on the Restless Art site I added two new prints, ‘Red Barn’ from the nearby Sonoma hills and ‘Geranium Show’ from the streets of Lisbon. I’ve been sharing some of my deeper thoughts on the Instagram account, lately the topics have been lessons from solitude, why setbacks are just setups for comebacks, and how we become the company we keep. I also wrote about my favorite source for printing inexpensive same day 11×14″ and 8×10″ art.

Favorite links from the past week:

This villa in Cannes with seamless indoor/outdoor living.

Fantastic before and after: this Venice Beach renovation.

How pretty is the pale putty color on these kitchen cabinets?!

These interior images by photographer Nicole Franzen.

Cozy black + white layers in this South Carolina island style home.

So sophisticated: the black + brass kitchen in this San Francisco row house.

This layered brass shelf fills a corner nicely, no?

It looks like this will be the future of international air travel.


  1. Hi Kate

    What recipe did you use for the sauce – I am always experimenting with new ideas.

    Kind regards.
