Electric Color Rugs

Gone are the days of traditionally colored rugs.  I’ve always found myself drawn to the beautiful patterns in global rugs, but the colors always tend to be the same: clusters of earth tones or reds with creams and blacks.  Not anymore.  ABC Home recently launched a line of ‘color reform’ rugs that push the limits of color blasting your floors.  They are simply stunning.  I was amazed to find more electric color rugs from some other familiar retailers.

Olive to Cook is back!

Olive to Cook has been MIA.  Why?  Because I just got married!  Olive to Cook officially has a new family.  Hubby Nick Gerome and two new kittens, Miles and Sadie.  The four of us are all settled in and ready to start up the next phase of our culinary journey together, as a family. Over the break away from blogging, I spent a lot of time thinking about what I wanted to do with it next.  I have a lot of passions other than cooking, including style, home, craft, and travel.  You could say that “Olive” (I love) those things too, and it seems only fitting for me to use this blog as an outlet for those interests too. So look out for posts of a variety going forward… posts on all “Olive:” food, family, style, home, craft, and travel.
