The only flowers blooming are the paperwhites in my house. But Spring is almost here, can you feel it?
I love bright, modern spaces with clean lines and lots of greenery. These are a glimpse from a guesthouse I have stayed at in Dublin called Number 31. Number 31 was designed by the famous Irish architect Sam Stephenson, and was his home in the 50s and 60s. I love the walls! That ceiling! Those windows! And the overgrowth outside? Just heavenly.
I love donuts, and I love New York City, and a good friend who knows this about me got me this incredible Donut Map of New York for my birthday. So last time I was there, I hit up this tiny little place in Soho called Bottega Falai. I couldn’t resist the custard donuts, I don’t know how I even held out long enough to take this photo.
I’ve been craving some greenery in this cold, snowy Boston winter, so I figured where better to look than a greenhouse. Snug Harbor Farm in Kennebunk has been on the list for awhile, so I visited one Saturday. Despite the snow outside, it was a balmy 75 degrees inside the greenhouses. The selection of plants, especially the succulents, was phenomenal. I’m making a mental note to stop back in the spring when I want to freshen up the plants on my deck.
