Color of the moment: Mustard

by Cary Rogers

Have you noticed mustard yellow popping up everywhere lately? It’s such a warm and pretty color! I’ve bought some pieces to incorporate into my wardrobe, but I keep seeing it in home decor, too.

According to Southern Living, mustard yellow has shown up on virtually every 2019 trend report, and is gaining popularity as a wall color.

Indoor Gardens (& Friday Links)

Hooray for the weekend! Aron and I are headed out on a kid-free trip to Healdsburg and Calistoga to celebrate our anniversary a little early!

What are you looking forward to this weekend?
