Our friend Becky has a side table in her dining room, and she always creates such a lovely still life on it. We love that she displays the ephemera she has found–from feathers to shells to favorite restaurant matchbooks–next to a bouquet of flowers, and always candles.

Tom Scheerer is one of the most talented interior designers I know–he is the master of the high/low mix, and has impeccable taste. We’ve stayed in an apartment he rents out in Paris before, and when we do, we sometimes are lucky enough to get invited over to to his apartment. At one dinner, he […]

I’m always sad when the book cover of a favorite children’s book gets torn or crumpled, as it inevitably does with a well-loved book. So I’ve started saving our favorite covers — removing them completely before they have a chance to be damaged — and hanging them on the wall. Originally I did this by […]

We love this flower shop we found in the Kensal Rise neighborhood of London. They collect vintage vases/containers, and send out their flowers in them. It’s such a nice idea—that you would get an arrangement in a vase that you keep, rather than in a glass one that you end up holding onto out of […]

I love the way our friend Becky made such a beautiful arrangement of the entire top of a sideboard. On it she put collected river stones in an old tureen, sentimental matchbooks in a bowl, feathers in a vase, oranges and chocolate that she was serving for dessert, candles (from Ikea!), and gorgeous roses—which pulled […]



rosebuds

We all have a landing space–be it a counter, a coffee table, credenza…where our life really happens. Keys, magazines, music speakers…and usually, it’s a little messy. Recently we were at a friend’s house, who had this same kind of landing spot, but she had placed a bowl of dried rose buds in a pretty bowl, […]




dewey house

Our dear friends Dewey and Stephanie Nicks, frequent contributors to Momfilter, had their home featured in the August 2011 issue of Martha Stewart Living. We are so inspired by it, and wanted to make sure you saw it. Here is part of the story, and go to the Martha link for the rest. “In lieu of a […]
