Weekend Reading 10.1.23

By Kate Riley October 1, 2023

Greetings friends, and welcome October! This weekend I’m wandering around Netherlands for a few days and I’ll be back in the States later this week. We’re eating a lot of cheese and enjoying local culinary specialties! Amsterdam is an exciting place to explore and the equally scenic cities of Netherlands are just a 45 minute train ride away. My favorite thing to do is explore on foot and Amsterdam happens to be one of Europe’s most walkable cities and so lovely in the fall. I’ll be sharing pictures on Instagram stories. :)

Favorite links from the week:

The inspiring projects by this design team incorporate a lot of negative space.

This Spanish Mission home filled with dark wood and ornate iron details.

This traditional home filled with color.

Examples of elegant arches in interiors.

Dutch blue is seen everywhere in Holland, and so pretty in this colonial kitchen.

Autumn garden chores to consider for your landscaping.

Why this working Dad often travels solo.

Fall destinations in Europe to bookmark.

I spied this new tech setup at Whole Foods. Seems very invasive, it’s not for me. Thoughts?

The best astronomy photos of 2023.


  1. Hi! I’ve been reading your blog forever and always look forward to the weekend reading.

    Amsterdam restaurant recommendation for a nice Italian dinner cooked by a nice Italian couple- Il Pacioccone. Moderately priced and delicious!

    Thanks for all the inspiration over the years!
