i love switching up bookshelves and adding trinkets to them. it’s one of the simplest things to redecorate that can make a huge impact. plus, there’s something so fun about rearranging and adding pieces, and then seeing what works and what doesn’t. a few of my favorite things to include in a bookshelf are leaning framed art, handmade ceramics, and little plants. lately i’m really loving monochrome bookshelves with one main color throughout, like all white with a few pops of the same peachy pink. here’s some of my favorite bookshelf styling inspiration at the moment. what type of shelf styling do you love? – erika

our third gift guide and one that might just have somethings you need for your own wish list too! these are bigger ticket items, things that someone wouldn’t normally buy for themselves and that are really nice to spoil someone with this season. buying something for someone’s home is a risk but it’s so nice to have a new beautiful pot to cook in or a sharp fancy new knife, you can throw in your favorite cookbook too to complete the gift. i also love the idea of gifting someone a planter and swinging by the local nursery for something to put in it. nothing brightens up a living space like a little green! – joanie

Happy Habitat throw $160 – we have two of these in our office and they are so durable and fun. they’re machine washable which is very nice and made in the USA!

cobb salad | designlovefest

there is something about summer that makes me naturally want to eat healthier. mostly because it’s hot outside and the farmer’s market is full of beautiful produce which makes me gravitate towards salads. i know it’s probably a stretch calling this a version of cobb salad but it was my inspiration so i’m sticking with it. we kept the dressing light but it would be nice with something creamy like an avocado dressing as well. and, you could use any type of greens for the base, we went with kale because it packs a heavy nutritional punch but use whatever you have on hand. if you use kale, do not forget to massage for 2-3 minutes with a little lemon and olive oil, makes a world of difference with the texture. oh, and we toasted our bread in the leftover bacon grease and we highly recommend you do it too. – joanie
