ANNOUNCING | WORKSHOP in Baja, Mexico

Hey Exhausted Mama's and Tired Work-a-holics out there! Who couldn't use a week away from it all this Fall?!

I've made it an annual practice the past number of years to have at least one week away without kids, hubbies, work, etc. to do something just for me, but my goal is always also to leave that week feeling both rested and inspired. I've spent time painting poolside in Palm Springs, designing couture in cafes in Paris, and absorbing the architecture in London.

THIS trip couldn't be more perfect! A photography/design tour of the Baja (escape the onslaught of November rain? YES, please!), be guided and cared for, learn about photography and design, and perhaps indulge in the odd Margarita while you're at it ;) While I've traveled to other, more popular/touristy, areas of Mexico, but I'm thrilled to be exploring the design-rich Baja along with you all through the eyes of this tour!

The trip is organized by Tina Dhillon of Designers Collective - an Architect and Interior Designer who is passionate about bringing people and design together, as well as oft-published photography expert Tracey Ayton. If you don't follow these two ladies on Instagram, YOU SHOULD. They constantly inspire me. I'm excited to contribute some new recipes to the group snack times - served on Food Tables, of course ;) - as well as a sketching workshop for those guests interested!

INTRODUCING | The Kitchen Collection by akHOME

We are SO VERY excited to introduce you all to our latest project here at akHOME! We're FINALLY launching our first line of dishwares, along with a beautiful set of kitchen items!!!

The Food Tables are our first venture into #foodfurniture. Two nesting - or stacking - tables to elevate your food at any event, especially weddings!

It's been an absolute honor to work with local artisans on this project, including Birdman the Welder and Kristine Weber c e r a m i c s. As a result, every piece is truly one-of-a-kind. And, of course, includes an "artful element" herb leaf to help showcase your delicious edibles!

Complimenting our new Food Tables are a NEW Wallpaper art print - the Herbal - which we're already in love with, and have in TWO colors in our own Kitchens :) And a matching Apron, printed in a gorgeous Champagne color, as well as our already popular Vintage-inspired Tea Towels!
