The Ultimate One-Month Moving Checklist: What to Do and When to Do It

I found this recipe for a Mauritian meal
Etouffée de Brèdes Songe et Sardines Stewed Taro Leaves with Sardines
As a side note in the Caribbean we usually substitute spinach for taro leaves used in our recipies like callalloo.

Well who couldn't be happy with this house! Jen you did a fantastic job and offer such inspiration. Your style is what I've been trying to achieve with greens, navy and a bit of yellow and pink and Moroccan. I'm no where near there but thanks for the pep.

This is soo beautiful Hilda. Curious though, what is the source of the wire shelves in your kitchen over the microwave and the bedroom vanity. I have been seeing similar in a lot of Scandinavia homes

Beautiful and very unique counter-tops. I second @ali07, please give brunch menu(assuming it was brunch). It looks great too.

This makes me miss my childhood home in the Caribbean. The wooden home painted white, plank walls, darkwood floors, bright paint on every wall, not to mention the rats lol. I don't really miss the rats but I can relate to that. We had some sewer monsters that would break in our jalousie windows if they were a tad bit open and then be gone by morning. Congrats, you have the stamp from a Caribbean/South American you've made it "to the beach with Kelly Wearstler" and beautifully so.

I love this place. I reminds me a bit of Urban Outfitters with a touch of class and modernity or rather Anthropologie not overdone. I think it reminds me a lot of me although I can't relate to some of the items like the cowboy boots but I like that it mixes the past and the present. I think it just screams "this is who we're nothing to hide and we are not shy" here which is great. Heck even the Sterilite storage is on display.

Sweet! I really like all the fabrics in your home. However if thats a bin of shoes near the dining table it seems kind of an unhealthy location. Not for the shoes but for the diners. Hoping its handbags.

This is a drastic change from Evans earlier views of his loft. See: http://www.desiretoinspire.net/blog/2009/4/21/evans-incredible-loftand-a-dilemma.html

Nevertheless this is FANTASTIC and right up my alley in terms of style.

Simply real and Beautiful. I love the of the traditional rugs with the modern furnishings. It seems like some modern design principle that one would be disobeying in this day and age but it edgy. Best of all is the fact that Mr. Rakatansky doesn't even have to try because he IS the real deal 52 years in the making!
