Studio Ghibli Animated Films High Quality Stills

Just earlier this year in September Studio Ghibli graciously released a huge collection of hi-quality stills from some of their latest films like When Marnie Was There, The Wind Rises, Princess Kaguya, From Up On Poppy Hill and more, with some 400 images in total. Now I’m sure most of us have already seen these films, and the images released are nothing new in particular, but we can never quite enjoy them at our own time when actually watching the films, but with the release of these stills w...

New Wall Couture Collection from Soicher Marin

Soicher Marin presents the Wall Couture Collection, a curated selection of design-forward wallpapers for the autumn season. The collection is comprised of several unique designs. Brancusi, by artist Susan Hable, is a bold pattern of geometric forms etched in white on a vibrant background, “reflecting the simplicity and elegance of mid-century as well as whimsical floral contemporary ideas.” Alien Relic is similarly daring. Freshly unearthed from the Soicher Marin archives, the ...

Spruce Up Your Desktop with October’s Desktop Calendar

Hooray for Fall! I’m so excited October is finally here. Normally it would still be hot here in Georgia, but recent hurricanes sent us rainy days and cooler temperatures. I still expect us to top 90° a few more times. Bryan and I celebrate our wedding anniversary this month and it feels like the perfect time of year. Sometimes he takes off work and we spend the day in the north Georgia mountains. I have two simple objectives: good barbecue and a caramel apple. Sometimes we find a fall festival ...

Tips for hanging a wall mural

For a long time now, I have wanted something on this white wall in my hearth room. I couldn't figure out what until Wallsauce reached out to me about trying out one of their murals. My biggest problem at this point was choosing which one I wanted from the thousands they have available online! I ended up with a design by Steve Read because I loved the style and color story. Cutting around outlets There were just a couple of tricky parts to hanging this mural. First, there were three outlets ...

Garden of ‘Eden’: A New Collection by Lindsey Adelman for Calico Wallpaper

We’re longtime admirers of artist and designer Lindsey Adelman, whose sculptural, otherworldly lights grace some of our favorite homes (like this and this), so we were particularly excited to learn that she has created a new wallpaper collection for Calico Wallpaper. Dubbed “Eden,” the designs grew out of the time she spent during her self-imposed residency on Belle-Île, an island off the coast of Brittany, France. Surrounded by so much natural beauty, she and her friend took to foraging every d...

If Only It Were Scratch & Sniff: August’s Desktop Calendar

Do you ever wish you could just hit the pause button? Maybe that sounds unusual in the middle of a global pandemic, but it’s how I feel lately. Life is spinning by so fast it makes me dizzy. Our youngest son had his high school graduation ceremony Saturday. I’m so proud of him and grateful for the hard work of those who finally were able to make it happen; it wasn’t easy. We’ve become so dazed and confused sometimes it’s hard to snap out of it and do normal things. We’ve got one month with him ...

How to Get Asus ROG Phone 3's Live Wallpapers for Your Android

Asus’s ROG Phone 3 is a beefy gaming-focused device. Even its wallpapers are designed to animate when you turn on its high-performance “X-Mode.” The intent is to evoke that “extreme gaming” vibe (sometimes to a fault), but the animated wallpapers actually look pretty neat—and thanks to XDA Forums user linuxct, you can…Read more...

Decorate Your July Desktop!

I had the marketing call for my new book It All Began in a Garden last week and I was a little nervous. {You’re going to FLIP over the pre-order bonuses!!} COVID threw life into a tailspin—we all get that—but I imagined I’d done everything all wrong already. (Is this more of an Enneagram 3 thing or does everyone put this much pressure on themselves?)? I grabbed my camera and walked around the yard photographing flowers, and then I grabbed my macro lens and did it all over again. I ne...

June’s Desktop Calendar & Thoughts on the Golden Rule

A few years ago we planted two magnolia trees, one on each side of our front yard. I remember the large magnolia whose branches hung low over the wooden fence of my childhood home and how people sometimes knocked at our door and asked to cut a few blooms for a wedding. I wanted some of that lemon-sweet southern comfort at this home too, where we’ve lived for almost 15 years. The tree on the east side of our yard has grown tall and fair, with fragrant blooms from top to bottom. The one on...

Kitchen of the Week: ‘SMILF’ Creator Frankie Shaw’s Newfangled Old-Fashioned Remodel by Reath Design

So many renovations we see nowadays entail brightening up interiors and whiting out—quite literally—what was originally there. What we admire about interior designer Frances Merrill, of Reath Design in Los Angeles, is her unique, trend-bucking strategy: rather than open up spaces and painting everything white, she create cocoons of color, pattern, and moody warmth. This cozy eat-in kitchen she designed for actress and SMILF creator Frankie Shaw, and her TV writer husband, Zach Strauss, exemplifi...

Easter Dogwood Images for You

I photographed some dogwood blooms on at a local park on our last day before Georgia’s shelter-at-home took effect. When I uploaded the images to Lightroom at home, I rediscovered a batch of dogwood images I took in 2014 and added text for Easter. Honestly, I don’t remember what I did with them then, but I want to make them available to you now to use as a screensaver this week to remember what it represents. Dogwood blooms represent a beautiful, visual reminder of the crucifixion. Many of us a...

Download April’s Desktop Calendar!

This virus may keep us home, but it can’t stop the spring! I took a walk through my neighborhood recently to enjoy the freshness and color of the season, if not the pollen count. Unfortunately you can’t have one without the other. As of Friday evening, we are under a statewide shelter-in-place order. The kids and I went out Thursday afternoon and climbed a local mountain. A lot of other people did too, enjoying our last full day to do so, although our family has stayed home since mid-March; it...

It’s Back—March’s Desktop Calendar!

I want to offer a big apology to those who’ve downloaded my calendars for years and a big welcome if you’re snagging some desktop bling for the first time. I’ve posted these wallpapers almost monthly, through three different sites, since April of 2010—almost 10 years!—but this is the longest I’ve gone without one. Thank you for patience!

Old World Meets Modern: A Casual but Elegant Pre-War Flat on the Baltic Coast

Once again, we find ourselves in the familiar position of being utterly charmed by a Colombe Design project. (We’ve waxed poetic about their projects twice before: here and here.) There are similarities between the residences the firm designs—Old World high ceilings, striking architectural details, an emphasis on sculptural statement lighting—but this one, while just as elegant as the other projects, has a whimsical casualness all its own. This sophisticated but relaxed approach was largely info...
