I also assumed people would understand this is for people who use a duvet cover. I don't think anyone would recommend going without a top sheet if you use a standard comforter or a quilt that would have to be dry cleaned weekly!

@ChzPlz - I regularly use almonds instead of pine nuts and the pesto still comes out delicious. Typically I'll chop raw almonds and lightly roast them before tossing them into the food processor. Cashews are nice too, and the sweetness they provide is nice if you're using a stronger basil.

If you find them raw, they're delicious stuffed with Italian sausage and roasted just long enough to cook the sausage. So easy and they disappear every time I bring them to a party!

And make sure they are "dry packed" - I learned this the hard way after spending almost $30 on scallops only to have them taste like dish soap :(

I love this! Would one of these be worth framing, or does the ink start to fade too quickly?

I love this! we're having "Asian Bowl of Stuff" in my house tonight - on black rice because it's delicious and can be cooked before anyone becomes too hangry.

I ADORE this apartment. Enjoy your bright, clean space before the baby (and everything that comes with a baby) arrives!
One question though, the initials on the monogrammed pillows...whose are they?

Very pretty! Maybe a darker stain, and use a white paint to outline the design, then definitely cover the center with glass.

Love Jonathan Adler's Pop Candles (Sea Salt is my absolute favorite)- bonus, the glasses they come in are dishwasher safe and make great tumblers once you've used up the candle.

Catena Malbecs are my favorite wines to bring to dinner parties; they're certainly crowd pleasers!

If you described this bathroom to me I would say no way, but... I kind of really love this for some reason

I agree with xarcady, look at the wall as having 6 sets of windows rather than 12 individual windows. 1/2 the work!

I like it! Baby clothes are adorable and I'm actually more diligent about hanging than I am about folding so I would definitely try this (with my hypothetical future children).
One question though (for everyone, really) has anyone else noticed that the new(ish) hanging system for Lack shelves is terrible? It just doesn't offer the same stability of the old system. (Thankfully, the longest shelf still uses the old system)

Since you're flying in I would suggest getting in touch with local bakeries and seeing what they have to offer, or ask a guest of the party to help out. Plates of cookies, cream puffs (which can be made citrusy if you'd like), maybe some assorted white chocolates, and a large edible arrangement could be lovely. Maybe even mini creamsicle floats (like a root beer float but with orange soda).

I'm also anti flat sheet, I figure that as long as I'm washing my duvet cover once a week anyway then it's fine!

Agree, a cheap frame can ruin the look but the right frame can really elevate the average poster.
These are all great examples of a poster really working in a sophisticated way.
