Hi there and happy 2017! I hope you don’t mind that I took last week to settle back into the work flow. The year is already off to a fast and furious pace in the studio, but I’m kinda digging it. Thought I’d pop in to share some recent loves in my own life, and a couple things I’ve been eyeing.
MY CHRISTMAS GIFT TO YOU
Among other things, my grandmother gifted me a few different serving bowls and platters from Crate & Barrel this year. She knew I’d been wanting larger pieces for dinner parties, buffets, that type of thing! Anyway, she got me the small and medium version of the Mallorca serving bowl, and I have to sing their praises. I like entertaining pieces that are super versatile, and these fit the bill — simple white, with a small amount of detail on the edge (that feels interesting, but not over the top, and like it’ll be in style in another 10 years). Both bowls are shallow enough to do double duty as a platter (I used one as a crudité platter, and nested a bowl of hummus in it alongside other veggies), but are deep enough that you can easily pile up pasta, potato salad, or items off a grill (barbecue chicken, corn on the cob, that type of thing). They’ve really amazed me with their versatility, and given that the small is $25 and the medium is $35…well, if you’re in need of some good serving pieces, these are the ticket. Trust.
