I fell completely in love with this graphic and modern heirloom seedkit by Sarah Rainwater Design. The seeds in the kit are carefully chosen as they are high-yield and easy to grow inside the included paper pots. Keep your timing right with the lovely calendar that includes instructions for growing each plant. Unfortunately the kits are currently sold out, but I thought you would appreciate the clean aesthetic of these kits regardless!

Homes | Clay Inspiration

Posted By:Celine
Clay plaster by American Clay is a green finishing material that is pretty high on my list of favourites. I love it. It's a troweled on wall finish that can be very textured or smooth, is available in over a hundred colours and can applied to a variety of substrates. Because it is a hand applied finish, the variety available in the application is pretty varied - I've seen installations that were very modern and sleek, and others still that were more traditional or rustic, such as the home in this feature.

After admiring Orling & Wu in the pages of several of my favourite design magazines and hearing such wonderful things about it, it was quite a delight to send them their first shipment of Pure Green!! Orling & Wu is known for their impeccable styling and diverse assortment of gifts, housewares, dishes, fabrics and so much more, all nestled and displayed in a beautiful setting (with that trademark wallpaper!). If you find yourself in old historical Gastown, Vancouver, stop in to 28 Water Street for your copy of Pure Green and get lost in the store while you're at it! Read More

We recently made this dish again for a dinner party and I was reminded at how good it was! The beetcakes are literally exploding with flavour. The slight bitterness of the beets pairs delightfully with blue cheese and is pleasantly finished with the jalepeno cream. (Recipe download available.) Read More
