Weekend Reading 1.30.22

By Kate Riley January 30, 2022

Greetings everyone! January is quickly coming to a close and spring is drawing near. I love autumn and summer, but there’s something so special about the season of spring, watching nature come back to life again, seeing buds on branches knowing they will lead to months of flowers.

I’ve been busy making travel plans for the year. Florida, Mexico, and Spain are on the list of destinations I’ll be visiting in the next six months. Are you starting to think about traveling this year as well? Where are you planning to go?

Some favorite links from the past week:

This landscape designer’s portfolio is lovely.

Serene hues and pretty patterns fill this Seattle home.

This lake house is filled with layers of rustic texture.

Charming! Recipes inspired by literary quotes from famous novels.

Two cool IKEA hacks: this cane web dresser and this reed trim bunk bed.

20 chocolate dessert ideas for Valentine’s Day.

Wanna be a beekeeper? Here are some tips for beginners.

More evidence why sleep is your superpower.

Feel Caribbean vibes when visiting these Florida beaches.


  1. Kate, love, love, love the kitchen in the Seattle house. That is absolutely the way a corner sink should be done in a u-shaped kitchen and that peninsula (which so many people ditch for a too small and basically useless island) is a seamless part of the design. I can’t remember when I last saw a home in which I loved every room. If it were given to me, the only change I would make would be more green rather than blue because I’m totally a green person. Thanks – this was a delight.

  2. Kate,
    If you are in Miami or Ft Lauderdale or West Palm Beach DEFINITELY take a trip on the Brightline train.
    I am on the train right now doing a day trip from Ft Lauderdale to Palm Beach. For $54 premium ticket you have unlimited beer wine and real food snacks in the lounge and onboard. They sent a car to my apartment to take me to and from the station Amazing!
