When we were discussing ideas for new columns this year, I sat back and thought about what I felt was really missing from the web. I kept coming back to the idea of decorating, but I wanted to tackle something more practical and knowledge-based, rather than just inspiration. While trying to shape the column’s focus I was reminded of an important lesson I learned while writing Design*Sponge at Home: photographs should teach and not just describe. I was so used to listing and linking items in a home tour, rather than using it as a teaching moment (to explain how and why the things in a room worked), that I was missing a chance to really help readers (and myself) gain more design confidence and practical decorating skills.

These two wanted to celebrate their anniversary in a big way, so they jetted off from Seattle to Paris, where they also spent their honeymoon six years earlier. Cozbi fashioned a bouquet out of flowers from a nearby market; they made a picnic of macaroons, cheeses, crackers, and Champagne; and set off for a sunset stroll with Karen Kristian Photography in tow.
