This week’s Field Guide is all about the color black, with a little white thrown in the mix too.

There is something really beautiful about the way homes look without all those extra colors. I’m really drawn to sterile looking homes, but the “homeyness” seems missing sometimes. These spaces really proved me wrong. They may lack a variety of color, but they feel incredibly warm. I hope that we can come close to capturing this feeling in our future home.

This week’s Field Guide is all about botanicals.

It’s spring again, and that means I’m ready to cover the house in flowers and other plants. I’m especially loving unconventional ways of displaying them, like the baby’s breath. Here are some other great ideas to brighten up your home with botanicals.

This week’s Field Guide is all about candlesticks.

Candlesticks are quite lovely, lit or not. The way you store them can be beautiful; I love the idea of having a jar of candlesticks around as decoration. If you don’t have a vase on hand, they’re a great place to put florals. Here are a few other ways to use them, and a few candlestick holders as well.

Last weekend we started grouting the subway tiles we put up for the never ending project. Hopefully we will get to that soon, but for now, since we have tile on the brain, I thought a Field Guide post would be appropriate. To me, subway tile is pretty timeless. It looks great stacked, staggered or patterned. With either light or dark grout, and either horizontal or vertical. My personal favorite? Vertically stacked tiles with black grout. Here are some other beautiful combinations.

This week’s Field Guide is all about cork.

Cork has a great texture, is versatile, and is unexpected. To top it off, if you harvest it correctly you don’t harm the tree itself, making it sustainable. Here are a few ways to incorporate cork into your home. I’m especially loving the cork wall in Matt and Kathy’s home.
