The holidays are upon us and as I was getting out festive plaids for the house and for Maze, tartans immediately came to mind and I realized I hadn't finished sharing my trip to Amhuinnsuidhe Castle in the Scottish Highlands with you!
Last month my husband, Chris, and I were so lucky to be invited by dear friends in Scotland for a salmon fishing trip to the majestic Amhuinnsuidhe Castle. The castle is on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides Islands of the Scottish Highlands.
So excited to share that a photo from my Bardes Interiors porfolio is featured on "This Week on Houzz" in the ideabook "Wake Up Your Kitchen with a Deluxe Coffee Center."
The home owners on this project were true java aficianados and asked that I make their treasured espresso machine and coffee grinder a critical part of their kitchen design.
To me, summer at the cottage is the easiest and most enjoyable time for entertaining. It's not "real" cooking - which for me means following recipes. It's a time when I can throw together a meal, combining favorite flavors and textures, and rely heavily on the grill!
A cocktail party with simple nibbles is a great way to end the day and kick off a warm summer evening.
