Guest Picks: Delicious Decoration
The daily attention we pay to preparing and eating food is naturally immersed in our lives. I like to see images of and words about food incorporated into the details of the space around me. They inspire me. We all want the material pieces that surround our lives to reflect out interests, and for me, it's all about food. From quotable Julia Child tidbits on kitchen tools to a naturally scented grapefruit aroma dispenser, these products let me live and breathe the love I have for food and all of its methods of preparation. — Mariko from The Little Foodie
