When I saw this color dropcloth by Farrow and Ball in this kitchen my heart skipped a beat. It’s the perfet beige. You will want to check out all 15 Calming Paint Colors Designers Love from Better Homes and Gardens.
OUTFIT OF THE WEEK
I know many of you aren’t fans, but I love a good, ripped, distressed patchwork jean. I love anything with a vintage vibe. That being said, I would not spend a pile of money on a pair. I won’t mention any of the high end jeans peeps that are selling them for $$$. We are from the generation of cut-off’s, right? They are now marketed now for big $$. If I am going to buy a pair of “destroyed” jeans, I am going to buy them from a low end retailer or do my own. I had a pair from H&M that I had for a couple of years until they were in shreds. Would you really pay big $$$ to have the same thing happen? And…why do they always rip them in the knees, so we can rip them more every time we slide them on? I am pairing a fun pair of patriotic jeans from Walmart with a great J Crew cashmere sweater, Artemis Design Co slippers and a bandana from Etsy. Don’t be afraid to mix the high and low, or do your own, better yet.

THE CUBA LIBRE STORY ON NETFLIX
I am not a great sleeper, so I often listen to documentaries in the middle of the night. I found the Cube Libre Story on Netflix interesting. I think you might as well if you are interested in the history of the Castro regime.
