A new book

Posted on Sun, 22 Jul 2012 by KiM

I got my hands on a new book recently so I thought I’d do a review of it today for you all. It’s called Cupcakes and Cashmere by Emily Schuman, and it is based on her lifestyle blog, which I happen to have been reading daily for at least a year now. This book is only somewhat related to interior design but I quite enjoyed it so I thought I’d feature it with photos of the more design-y topics. ­čÖé  Cupcakes and Cashmere includes DIY projects, organization tips, party-planning ideas, beauty how-tos, and delicious recipes for food and cocktails (a few I want to try ASAP). It’s separated into seasonal chapters, and within each Emily divulges her signature “Five Things” relating to beauty, style, at home, and food & entertaining. You can purchase the book at Amazon, Abrams and Barnes & Noble. Here’s a little peek (of course I had to include a photo I found at the back of the book of her 2 cats).

I am curious about what that is you have set the book upon for background when you took the photos. It's beautiful, but what is it? ~Sparky

I was at my parents' place yesterday enjoying their pool since it was VERY hot (as it has been all summer here in Ottawa – not complaining tho'!), and that is a super heavy wrought iron dining table near the pool. Found this photo of it on Flickr.

Thanks, Kim! I really couldn't tell; thought it may be indigo dyed leather (my wild imagination) or wood and then curiosity got too much of me. ;o)
