Cooking enthusiasts worldwide will probably appreciate the elegant design of these wooden cutting boards. Geometric edges with opposite angles create two unique faces in each of Taylor Donsker Design‘s handcrafted, hardwood cutting boards. Available in Wenge, Black Walnut, and Birdseye Maple, each cutting board is made from one solid piece of lumber in California. These boards/serving trays are treated with an exclusive, food safe and completely natural organic oil consisting of organic bees wax and organic Jojoba Oil.
Unlike cutting boards which are laminated from smaller pieces of wood and finished with mineral oil, there is no petroleum, formaldehyde, or other harmful chemicals used. Each set you buy includes a small packet of organic oil to allow the board to last for generations and maintain the beauty of the board’s grain.

Sunken living rooms were all the rage in the 60s and 70s, but they can still be just as comfy and stylish in the aughts. With so many of us opting for open plan spaces these days, creating a casual but defined “conversation pit” is a fun way to break up your living room into manageable zones. Read on for some of our favorite inspiration rooms featuring cozy sunken living areas that we’d love to nestle up in.
Create height with items such as plants, artwork and books. Alternate taller pieces with shorter items such as peite vases, as shown below in the A Beautiful Mess studio living room. Not sure where to start? Choose a cohesive look and go for it! The next shelf vignette featured at Emily Henderson showcases a “Desert New Age” style, which welcomes earthy tones, tribal patterns, succulents and mineral specimens, among other pieces. In fact, in the next image we see the exact same shelf, this time styled to create a Playful Scholar look featuring neutral, masculine colors. Note special touches such as a globe and a bust displayed in a cloche. Incorporate a few unique conversation pieces into your shelving display for added interest.
