Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes 2006-2016


Ricky Lauren

Initially I planned to mention Ricky Lauren's new book, Double Rl Ranch: The Inspiration, Legend, And Cuisine of Colorado, before the holidays but the book received so much press elsewhere and I moved on. Now though, I regret not including it in my holiday gift suggestions.

Currently on the Ralph Lauren site there is a nice podcast related to the book, as well as a link to Ricky Lauren's table-setting segment on Martha Stewart. Ricky uses a very striking bold striped Indian blanket as the foundation for a layered holiday table. If you have any Mary McDonald in you, it is worth a look for future Christmas dinner table inspiration and current winter dining ideas too.

For a mom who is a longtime fan of the Ralph Lauren aesthetic and who loves to cook, the book would be a lovely Mother's Day gift -- although, it is already sold-out or back-ordered at many places.
