As someone at my mom’s office likes to say, I would describe myself as a “gluten intensive” kind of person. It is all the rage these days to be cutting out breads and all other derivatives of dough, but I truly can’t imagine life without morning croissants and afternoon tea cakes. And there is simply […]

Anna Rifle Bond

While Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. may not have the same edge or cool-factor as some of my other favorite designers, her sweet simplicity and absolute attention to detail deserve some major praise.
