I'm sorry but I couldn't pay any attention to the room with that adorable little cherub taking centre stage! So cute! I love to see how differently little girls play with their toys than boys do. She looks so gentille rocking her baby doll.
(Oh, and yes, the room is lovely too!)

who would have thought a tiramisĂș "pudding" could spark such controversy! nomenclature aside, it sounds delicious.

Love Design Atelier Article's bookends! (#4 and #8). I ended up getting this one with the eld and squirrel for my daughter's room. https://www.etsy.com/listing/165851168/bookends-elf-and-squirrel-laser-cut-for?ref=shop_home_active_23

Faith, I fear I may have hijacked your post. I think the initial comment about disliking coffee and ladyfingers in tiramisĂș may have been in reference to the comments in my link ;-). Though I adore coffee in all forms and have a deep appreciation for marsala, I never liked pudding paired with coffee or alcohol. And for this reason, this recipe sounds heavenly!

Hah! Who doesn't love pudding! Don't get me wrong, I love all the components, just not together ;-)

Another amazing recipe, Faith. I just made mini tiramisĂș ramekins (minus the ladyfingers) myself a couple of days ago for my daughter's birthday tea party. So much better with just the cream!

Actually, halloumi is Cypriot, not Greek. But thank you for highlighting this wonderful cheese!

Such a great article! there are commercially available almond milks that are carrageenan free; I think they use guar gum. Still full of additives. Almond milk came to the rescue for me in the first 9 months of nursing my daughter though- she reacted horribly to even trace amounts of dairy.
I found a great alternative for my coffee was canned organic coconut milk. Of course then there's the BPA worry. Cannot win!
So happy to be back to dairy milk.
But I definitely recommend checking out Danielle Walker's almond milk recipe http://againstallgrain.com/2011/12/15/homemade-almond-milk/

Thank you, Chelsea! And I really love the colours in your painting. what great contrast!
jxk- that's a wonderful idea. A bit like documenting a child's growth through their handprints. Perhaps you could do one every year for father's day ;-)

Oh, I LOVE this!! The colour palette is perfect; I'm especially fond of mint accents.
I see there are many more lovely images on the blog, though I think the room resources might be nice to have too.

I am so in love. The colours. The soft and feminine clothes hanging in the closet. The moroccan wedding blanket and pillows. I can't express how much I love this home tour. One of my favourites so far.

Great tip. I usually hand wash everything before I put them in the dishwasher anyway- i'm not sure why but i guess don't trust they will be clean if I don't. for me, the advantage of the dishwasher is the extra hot sterilisation setting (i use the express wash cycle with heated dry), and having a place for the dishes to dry ;-)

Love the ikat fabric!!
I agree though that I'm not crazy about the appearance of the wood in the after. Is it painted brown?
Overall, a beautiful transformation!
