summer favorites: sandra

rex chair aqua
I’m going with a CB2 classic modern outdoor chair—with good reason— the rex chair is incredibly comfortable, it stacks to save storage space, the aqua color is timeless and versatile and it’s a fantastic value.

after the harshest winter in decades, I’m looking forward to spending as much time outside as possible so I’m investing in this durable outdoor lighting to help keep everyone at the table just a bit longer—and the vintage bulbs are the perfect compliment to a 1940s summer cottage.

I’m thrilled that we found E-Tech Boards and Brett Whitacre to make this project happen—now if only I lived near surf! (btw, the bird was not Photoshop’d in!)

sidebar

Nearby CB2 Berkeley, Sidebar was founded by three friends who share their culinary passions and talents by serving Mediterranean bistro fare and comfort foods with new twists.

Find them at 542 Grand Avenue in Oakland and order the ‘pisco sour’—voted the best of the east bay in 2009.

Thanks to florence, berkeley store manager, for the tip and to anne-marie at sidebar for the great photos.

how to: create a branch centerpiece

Entertaining season will be here soon so it’s time to get ready. By hanging a centerpiece over— instead of adding clutter to—the dining table, ample room is left for a clean modern table and unobstructed brunch to dinner conversations.

Select a branch sized to suit your dining space, paint for a high-gloss effect, and add colorful ornaments to trim your ‘tree’. To hang, use natural twine—or extra strong fish-line for a floating effect.

hint: consult a hardware store for the best advice on hanging hardware.

morgans

In our neighborhood, Morgans is the creation of Barclay Graebner—who opened her first place in SoBe, Blu Dog Bakery, at the age of 19.

She’s also formed a food cooperative for vegans and vegetarians and at the same time discovered a 1930’s breezy duplex in the Wynwood district which became home to Morgans, specializing in modern, home-style comfort food. mmm mm!

Thanks to tameeka, store manager south beach miami, for this submission.
