From Inspiration to Execution

So you know you have a project ahead of you, but not a clue as to where you start… No worries, there are a ton of places out there to help guide you along like Pinterest, Houzz and resources like ideas.kohler.com, which takes you from design inspiration to the next step of your bathroom or kitchen project. But really you might have the inspiration for a design project in the most unlikely of places, like a trinket sitting on a shelf, or a vacation you took 10 years ago!

I really like to pull inspiration from what I know, things I love or places I’ve been… This is by far the most authentic way to develop the bones for a successful project! The reason being is that it means something to you! So often we see beautiful spaces, but can’t connect, and that might be because there’s nothing that personally speaks to you.

Here are just a few examples of my initial inspirations and how they were transformed into their completed realizations so you see what I’m talking about…

Presentation Is EVERYTHING!

So it’s definitely that time of the year when we all are going crazy trying to figure out, who wants what… What are teenagers actually into?… What is the new “it” gift?… Why am I always rushing and running around till the bitter end, like I had no idea that Christmas actually fell on December 25th this year, and every year prior?…

Anyway, I digress… So besides the act of purchasing the “perfect” gift for all your loved ones, a major component to a successful present is the package that the item is given in. I’m such a sucker for awesome, and well executed wrapping… It just shows that besides the thought that went into the gift there was some time and effort put in to make sure that it looks gorgeous!

Here’s just a quick breakdown of the most simple of wrap jobs, but a few tips that I think make it it super chic!

Adrian’s Pound Cake

My husband doesn’t come from a long line of remarkable chefs or bakers, but what did trickle down is freaking awesome! One of the things that he makes very well is pound cake. This is a revamped recipe from his grandmother that he’s tweaked several times over, in many a trial and error taste test on my part. The recipe is basic enough that you can start to play with the proportions to suit your taste. 

One of my favorite variations of this recipe is the Pistachio pound cake version where a cup of the flour is more or less swapped out for Pistachio Pudding, and come on, who doesn’t love that?!
