New Year, New Look + new inspirations

Well one of my resolutions for this year was to redo my website..... so here it is! What do you think? I started working on the new site last November and although there are still a few bugs, I must say I am pretty happy with the way it looks.

My goals for the blog this year are more videos, more how to's, and more collaborations with other bloggers. As a ceramic artist I resolved to try new designs in my work and collaborate with other artists on some interesting products. For my home it is to redo my upstairs bathroom and clean out every last closet in my house! I think these are all good and attainable goals don't you? 

The biggest one for me though is to learn to step back from life and enjoy every day, without judging it is after all a journey as they say.

Some talented women that are inspiring me for 2015...

Sunday Suppers is a communal cooking centre in Williamsburg Brooklyn. The website and Instagram of the very talented Karen Mordechai are not only visually inspiring but the beautiful suppers in the Sunday Suppers studios look like wonderful gatherings of food and community. 


Line Kays blog that I featured a couple of weeks ago Vintagepiken is a huge source of inspiration. Her sense of style and her photos really speak to me. White, moody mixed with rustic styling…so lovely.


This year I discovered the work of Dietland Wolf, stylist, photographer and ceramic artist and am endlessly inspired by all of her work.. So creative in all that she does, her ceramics have the wonderful organic quality that I love but with a refined yet complex glazing technique that brings them to a whole other level.

Natrel and lookslikewhite Present: A Breathtaking Table Setting for the Holidays

This past summer I worked with Natrel, a Quebec based dairy company, on a wonderful project, How to Set a Summer Brunch Table. Well, I have once again had the chance to work with this great company on dressing a Breathtaking Holiday Table. Natrel has a wonderful commitment to providing pure, natural products and their website magazine is full of inspiring recipes and ideas for the holiday season.

It is always so much fun for me to think of ways to plan out my table settings for this time of year and I really love the rustic feeling of the Holiday Table we have for you in the video. There are so many great ways to Set a Holiday Table so this week I will dedicate a couple of posts to doing just that!

Take a look at the video and let me know how you plan to set your table this year!

Natrel and lookslikewhite Present: Summer Outdoor Brunch

I had such a great time recently working with the company Natrel. Natrel is a Canadian company, part of Agropur, which produces dairy products. They have a wonderful commitment to providing pure ingredients in their milk products and their name and slogan says it all...Natrel... Inspired by Nature. 

They work with Canadian bloggers on providing fun content for the Magazine on their full of great ideas, recipes and tips. I wanted to do a video with them so I put together something on how to Set a Summer Brunch table. I love doing rustic tables outside in the summer and so it was a natural fit for Natrel and I to work together. 

Go on over and take a look at the video on the website and let me know what you think!

Inspiration in White: Rustic Table and Food

I have a board for food styling on Pinterest and I really love the look of a rustic style for the table and for the food. I think these food and table pictures are perfect together and give great ideas of how to mix and match vintage plates and for setting the table! The look of a simple, easy table with this beautiful and simple food is so appealing. One of the things I like best about looking at photos of food styling though is the great ideas it can give you for cooking! Yummm..

Video Series: Set the Table

For 2014 I want to change things up a bit on my blog and one of the projects I have wanted to do for awhile is videos. I have never appeared on my blog and I have never shown my own decor but that is about to change....I love decorating and doing things around my home (and of course the homes of my clients) so I want to be able to share that with you this year. I will feature different ideas on setting tables, changing up your decor in the living room or bedroom and perhaps some before and afters in my clients homes.

My first video was shot in my dining room and I wanted to do a table that you could set up all year. It works in the winter or the summer and all you need is fresh herbs and branches. You could add flowers in small vases on the table but I set it this time with greenery only. I used Rosemary, mint and eucylyptus branches on the table...and of course I used mylookslikewhite ceramics as well. Hope you enjoy! Would love to hear your feedback of what you would like to see....(click on Vimeo to see it in HD)
