Ok, I know some of y’all out there think cranberries aren’t worth the time. And while I personally love a good homemade cranberry sauce, I do realize that the gelatinized version that comes from the can isn’t always the most appealing.
Well, this cranberry snack isn’t a sauce. It’s not a topping. And it’s not difficult at all. Cranberries, sugar and water are all you need – though you can add in some other elements like cinnamon, nutmeg and clove if you want – just a touch if so, but I do mine without all the stuff.
Both Thanksgiving and Christmas I have several bowls of these sitting around the table, within reach of every seat. Because once the main courses have been eaten and tummies are “full,” these keep the party going. Company will stay and chat for hours, picking at these little gems the entire time.
Of course, they can be a little tricky in our humid climate, but if you find them getting sticky, just pop them back in the freezer for 15-20 minutes. Give them a try this year! And if you’re a cranberry sauce lover, don’t think it has to be one or the other. Make ’em both and amp up the cranberry – seriously, these are so addicting.
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
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.

Last week, Chris and I had the incredible opportunity to travel to London for work. We were invited by Williams Sonoma and William Morris and Co to preview their newest collaboration and the inspiration behind it. It was my first time in London and although it was a quick trip, they brought us all over […]
