Worn Stories — The Chronicling of Clothes


For me, it was the delicate silk blouse from J Crew that cost me $200. It’s more than just a shirt, it was what I bought with my first real paycheck as a reporter after moving to New York. It was how I knew I had made it. And while it’s seen better days, I still wear it occasionally and it still hangs in my closet, 9 years after I moved to the city.

What’s Cooking — Spiralize your Veggies!


With up to 13 servings of vegetables recommended daily, eating the same vegetables, the same way every time can get awfully tiresome. I should know…as a primarily raw foodie, I go through my share of fruits and veggies. But recently, I’ve been wanting to update my go-to meal, the salad. That is where the spiralizer comes into play. A unique little kitchen gadget that shreds vegetables into curls. With a crank of your hand, in goes boring chunks of raw veggies and out comes beautiful spirals of perfectly proportionate vegetable. Most spiralizers even have optional settings to alternate cut styles from corkscrew to angel hair pasta. So from potatoes (curly fries) to zucchini (spaghetti squash), the spiralizer can handle it all.

Local Everywhere – Our 5 favorite CSA’s and How to find yours

The Temple-Wilton Community Farm in Wilton, NH

The Temple-Wilton Community Farm in Wilton, New Hampshire.

You can’t get much more local and handmade than a CSA (What is Community Supported Agriculture Anyway?), which is why we are big fans of them in general here at Krrb. Just thinking of another season filled with overflowing baskets full of freshly harvested produce, brought to us weekly by farmers who we have come to know, makes us salivate with excitement

The Highs and the Lows of Online Shopping


Who wants to navigate countless big-box and retail sites, sift through hundreds of products that look the same and then pay extortionate prices for stuff you can easily source through Krrb Classifieds? It’s just not practical. I’ve sifted through all of the amazing finds on Krrb and brought you similar versions of expensive products that won’t break the bank.

You can find literally anything, from solid furniture and fun rugs to one-of-a-kind home décor, all for a fraction of what you’d pay retail. Happy hunting…

Air Plant Holders Roundup

When I first found out I was moving to New York, I did two things: explored the terrifying “roommate wanted” online community, and ordered a glass air plant holder. Less space means less stuff, so I knew there were no giant potted plants in my future. I’ve since found a trustworthy place to call home, and that little plant is loving life next to my bed.

The beauty of air plants and succulents is that they require very little care, and add a nice touch of green to your interiors. Air plants attach their roots to things like shrubs and rocks, and thrive in bright, indirect light (even the indoor kind), so they work in a variety of environments.

Critical Decor — Living in a House of Cards

This weekend Netflix dumped its third season of House of Cards into our lap, perfect timing as most of the United States saw several inches of snow and ice. If you haven’t caught up with the political drama television series, now is the time to do it. Frank Underwood (played by Kevin Spacey) and his wife Claire (Robin Wright) have climbed the political food chain to the top, taking the spot of the President and the First Lady. You can go back and see how far Frank has come from a Democrat in South Carolina’s 5th congressional district and House majority whip to Vice President to now leader of the free world.

I Want This — Mid-Century Mustard Yellow Sofa by Flexsteel

You know when it’s love? When you can not stop dreaming of lounging on a sofa. I’m absolutely smitten by the golden hue of this Mid-Century beauty. Built in the late 1960’s, the dark walnut base really grounds this piece in any home.

I’m still trying to convince my boyfriend that we should visit Chicago and pick up this sofa. If you’re also in awe of the vibrant upholstery and the overall amazing original condition, find it on Dial M for Modern’s Krrb corner, available for $1,700.

Will it fit in my apartment properly? Is it comfortable? Will it hold all of my friends? It takes a lot of delicate thought and consideration. But never fear, I am here to guide you in the right direction

Stay Home — 10 Tips to Prep for Hibernation

Photo: Faressaad.com

As the winter season grows cold, it’s time to head indoors. In the spring, it’s all about the garden, cleaning and getting reacquainted with nature. In the summer we dine al fresco, swim and sun, and find many a garage, yard and stoop sale from neighbors near and far. Come fall, we take in the changing of the leaves, hike through the hills, drive for the views, grill into the night.

But winter is really when we stay at home, inside, all cozy-like. Similar to our primitive ancestors, we hibernate, so to speak. Now is a time to bunker down, bundle up and appreciate how we are compelled to stay home
