DIY Stair Runner Installation with Miss Mustard Seed

Mar 31, 2015

You might have noticed that we have a bit of a fetish for stair runners (as evidence, we offer exhibit A and exhibit B ). So when s blogger bestie like Miss Mustard Seed tells us she’s planning to install a rug on her stairs, and she’s planning to use a Dash & Albert rug, well, it’s like Christmas, New Year’s, our birthdays, and the first day of summer all rolled into one.     We know you’re going to love how Marian has decorated her hall and stairs, so head over to...

Peanut Butter Turkey Bacon Cake Recipe for Dogs

Mar 26, 2015

We can hardly believe that a year has passed since Annie brought home the two wriggling little bursts of Bassett hound energy otherwise known as Googie and Impy. Since then, they’ve become a fixture in our offices, showcasing their inner divas on photo shoots, keeping us company at our desks, and dutifully helping us to free the rugs of any man-overboard leftovers from lunch. But what do you give a pair of pups who already have a pretty sweet life, full of toys, comfy dog beds to test and...

No matter the year or the trends circulating around the home-decorating world, we can always predict one thing: blue will be among the top color choices for the bedroom—especially when said bedroom is shared by a guy and a gal. How is it that a single color can be so universally liked and evoke so many different characters and emotions?

One-Sheet Suppers: Like One-Pot Meals, but Way Better

Mar 20, 2015

The one-pot meal is often a whole lot more interesting in concept than in execution. Who doesn’t love the ease of tossing a bunch of ingredients in a single saucepan or Dutch oven, whipping up a complete meal, and then having a cleanup session that consists of washing exactly four items (a pot, a spoon, a cutting board, and a knife)? The major drawback to one-pot meals, however, is that eating soups and stews all week is a snooze. Enter Molly Gilbert’s new Sheet Pan Suppers, the cure for...
