I have been nudging Chris to write a food blog for a long time, and then recently–he came up with the idea himself. I pounced and the coding and designing began again. It makes sense really. Chris cooks dinner every night over here. And not just dinner–like, really really good food. It’s his passion. It’s one of his degrees. Honestly, we wish we could invite every one of you over for a meal, but this will kind of be the next best thing.
So while this blog will continue to share updates as we renovate and redecorate our home, Julia Loves Chris will house all things food related–written by Chris, the culinary master around here. And hey, I love him for it.
Hop on over there now to read this morning’s post about the the pan-seared halibut with coconut curry broth he made the other night. It would be great to make for date night this weekend!
So cool! :D
squealing with delight. no more “you have to share this on the blog!” Consider me hooked
Julia – love you hair in the new blog’s picture. One day can you take us through that like the eyebrows?

Such awesome news! I remember Chris being a great cook so I’m excited to check out the new adventures in the kitchen! I had a dream last night that I actually burned salmon! And I’ve never cooked salmon in my life because I don’t love seafood!!!

Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
