| los angeles, CA

i’ve been to events here but never had the chance to stay the night. the location is perfect and all of the room details are cozy and modern. there is also a killer wine bar right down stairs which is an added bonus to staying the night!

| big sur california

i’ve only ever driven through big sur but it’s one of the most beautiful places i’ve ever been and this hotel has stunning 360 degree views. i’d love to stay in one of their treehouse style rooms and soak in their infinity pool. i’d also like to visit the hot springs at which is not far from the inn.

| stockholm, sweden

the swedes really do have such great style and taste. i love the traditional style of the rooms mixed with pops of modern colors. the hotel is housed in an old townhouse which gives it a very comfortable and relaxed feeling.

| torres de paine, chile

joanie went here on her honeymoon and said it was amazing. i love how it’s built into its surrounding so it barely stands out or takes away from the natural beauty of the area. how about those hanging chairs?!

WEEKNIGHT CHILI

weeknight chili | designlovefest

i have a soft spot for family recipes. things that have been made generation after generation, passed down on food stained index cards and lovingly reminisced over. my grandmother’s homemade bread and her ginger snap cookies, my mother in-law’s jam, my own mother’s cinnamon rolls and the list goes on. i really love how the memory of someone can live on in the food they use to make for you. how smell and taste can bring back moments long passed. if you have a family dish you hope to carry on i urge you (and myself!) to watch as it’s made, learn the in’s and out’s so that some day, when it falls on you to make it, you’ll know the family secrets. today’s recipe is chili from my great-grandmother. i never knew her but my aunt passed me the recipe and i like thinking about her as i make it. it’s such a simple but satisfying recipe. easy enough for a weekday dinner! – joanie

• start by browning the meat, onions and garlic together in a pan. don’t stop until the onions are nice and caramelized! transfer to a medium size pot, add all of the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 1 hour. adjust seasoning to taste and serve! can also be frozen and reheated. if you like the soup to be thinner add a bit more water.
