There has been a growing (pun intended!) interest across the United States in home gardening, self-sustainable living and urban farming but what’s a wannabe farmer to do when the thumb just won’t turn that lovely shade of green you need it to

About two years ago, when I first met Production Designer Jen Dunlap I immediately knew that this was someone I had to be friends with. The amount of positivity and creativeness incased in this one person was extremely inspiring and I knew others would feel the same. Lucky for us, Jen took some time out of her very busy schedule to chat with me about what exactly her job entails, where it’s led her, and her favorite spots to search for props and decorations she needs for projects.

From 2006 to 2010 I attended school at SUNY Fredonia, a college known for it’s prestigious music program. Fredonia is a small school, consisting of just over five-thousand students a year, placed in the middle of an equally small town. With not a whole lot to do and an expansive number of musicians, a DIY scene began to form.

Get the Look — Springtime in Austin

9358628921_440c6a1c2b_z-640x512

With an average 300 days of sunshine per year here in Austin, Texas, it’s no wonder people in this city start to lose their minds during those rare-but-still-depressing multi-day stretches of cold, rainy, grey weather. I have no problem speaking on behalf of all Austinites when I say these last couple of weeks have been especially rough—many of my friends have remarked without a hint of sarcasm that they don’t remember what sunshine is—and I like to think it’s because we’re in the final stretch leading up to the glorious weather that always comes back around mid-March.

With blue skies, cool breezes and tons of sunshine so, so close, I can’t help but look ahead to the greatness that is spring in Austin. Here are some of my favorite picks on Krrb to help you ditch the gloomy winter blues and put together a cheerful, bright, and fun living room this spring.

I Want This – Midcentury Modern Bed Frame

Like most people starting out in New York, my sleeping situation is less than ideal. Specifically, it’s a tiny daybed, which (despite adding a mattress pad) feels like a close brush with death.

That’s why I’m lusting over this gorgeous midcentury modern bed frame. It has clean lines, beautiful wood, and amazing detailing on the headboard. I’m not even considering the mattress – I would fill the thing with crumpled newspaper and still be satisfied. Here’s to hoping that this is still available when I finally move into a bigger apartment, because I would gladly swap out storage to fit this bad boy in my life.

Ginger is a staple in my kitchen. You’ll find ginger spice and crystalized ginger in the pantry, fresh ginger in the freezer (it freezes surprisingly well!) and both Morris Kitchen ginger syrup and Barrow’s Intense ginger liqueur in the fridge. This root is unfussy in appearance but it packs a serious punch of flavor to whatever you add it to—be it food or drink. Read on for refreshing cocktails featuring the robust spiciness of ginger
