Bohemian Paradise

bohemian home_1While there’s no denying my affinity for a white and bright, borderline pristine home, there’s just something about a bohemian abode I’m equally drawn to. I’m a huge believer that a home should always feel lived in, and there’s no shortage of comfy-cozy, feel-good moments when it comes to this type of style. With layers upon layers of fabric atop priceless global treasures, this is one home tour that feels lived in and loved in the very best of ways.

Scenes from my Week

Spring dinner party {Mother’s day dinner}

This right here is concrete evidence that things are not always what they seem in blogland. I’ve told you before and I’ll tell you again, it’s very easy to make life look perfect in five photos a week. I mean, although it may look like a leisurely week was had, the exact opposite was in fact true. While last weekend was lovely, the week itself was a whirlwind of beautiful madness. With a two-day install, three (potential) new client meetings and starting (AND) finishing up a construction drawing package for a huge project in the west end, I am officially running off of fumes. But not all is lost! Because my i’s have been dotted, my t’s have been crossed, it’s officially Friday and we’re all face to face with a long weekend (mine will be spent at the cottage. Yus!)

Lemon Lavender Cupcakes

lemon lavender cupcakes
These lemon lavender cupcakes were my first experience in baking with lavender, and let me tell you, I am one smitten kitten. For years I’ve been drooling over sweets highlighting lavender’s delicate floral notes and I’m currently kicking myself for waiting so long to develop a recipe of my own. For our first rendezvous, I decided to infuse dried lavender flowers into a blackberry puree-spiked cream cheese icing to balance out the herbaceous, earthy quality of the lavender with sweet and tart notes from the gorgeously ripe blackberries that I’ve been stocking up on since they started appearing in my local market. And since all sinful frostings need a vehicle for consumption, I used my favorite light and fluffy lemon cupcakes as the base then topped each off with a crunchy sugared mint leaf because they were just too darn pretty to leave off. The result? A completely irresistible springtime cupcake that has been dubbed one of my all-time best by friends! Note that both the blackberry-lavender buttercream as well as the sugared mint require prep the night before so make sure you allow a little extra time for this one! XO, Katie
