New Houston home design shops have much to offer - Houston ChronicleThursday, May 02, 2019
One of the newest tennants at The Cottages at Matt Camron at Westheimer and Bammel is Paloma & Co., the home decor shop launched by business partners Devon Liedtke and interior designer Paloma Contreras. At their neatly curated store, you’ll find vintage and antique furniture, of course, but the real finds are among their collection of original art and hand-crafted items they source across the U.S. and in their travels. During a recent visit I found sweet porcelain bud vases ($27), linen cocktail napkins ($30) and some fabulous ikat print pillows ($175-$200). 2705 Bammel Lane; open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. Roseanette Navarro Interiors Interior designer Roseanette Navarro’s dream for the past 20 years has been to open her own store, and she finally got it. It, too, is located in the Matt Camron cottages. She has exclusive U.S. selling rights to the French Amanda de Montal candles ($80 and $300) and carries a smattering of beautiful throw pillows ($75-$400), coral ($125), crystal pieces ($200) and geodes ($140). You’ll come here for her French and Italian lighting and antiques, including an original Murano glass Sputnik-style chandelier ($8,500) or an ornate French chair she reupholstered in a more modern black leather ($1,800). 3209 Westheimer; 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday Janet Gust Design Stu-di-o In a small corrugated metal building in the Heights, Janet Gust has opened a trade-only, very contemporary shop with pillows made from gorgeous fabrics, vintage-style furniture reupholstered with whimsical prints and high quality prints that Gust has gotten licensing rights to create from original works. Right now she’s got works by Pam Smillow of New York and Barbara Lanier of Boston. She carries rock ’n’ roll photography by Robert Landau ($1,500 and up), and one clever new product is a collaboration with florist David Brown, when Gust had Brown bring in flowers that were photographed, then manipulated in a variety of colors and backgrounds for prints with bold pops of color ($250, framed). 5338 Cornish; by appointment, call 713-202-0552... https://www.houstonchronicle.com/life/style/luxe-life/article/New-Houston-home-design-shops-have-much-to-offer-13810864.php

A fresh brunch menu that combines spring flavours and flowers - The Globe and MailWednesday, March 31, 2021
Just ensure your flowers have been grown chemical-free (your florist should know – or pluck them from your own garden to be sure) and that you can positively identify the variety. Or seek out ingredients such as bottled rosewater or dried culinary lavender to help bring your brunch into bloom. St-Germain, an elderflower liqueur, is available in most liquor stores, and you can even buy bottles of elderflower syrup at IKEA. Garden Gravlax Serves 10-12 Curing your own salmon is surprisingly simple. A dry cure of sugar and salt, spiked with citrus, spices and perhaps some peppery nasturtiums, is rubbed heavily over a fresh fillet, which is then weighted down and left for 24 hours. Once cured and thinly sliced, the delicate white and purple flowers of blooming dill and chives are ideal for garnishing your gravlax. Nasturtiums are a little more unexpected: Both petals and leaves add a fresh, radish-like flavour that’s delicious tucked into your bagel and cream cheese. 1 tablespoon coriander seed, toasted 1 tablespoon fennel seed, toasted A few nasturtium flowers or leaves 1/2 cup Diamond Crystal kosher salt (or 1/4 cup fine table salt) 1/2 cup sugar 2-3 teaspoons grated orange, lemon or lime zest One 1 pound (approximately) salmon fillet Edible flowers, for garnish Crush the coriander and fennel roughly in a mortar and pestle or pulse them in a spice grinder. If you like, crush in a few nasturtium leaves or petals, or try other edible flowers – perhaps a few calendula petals or tangerine marigolds. In a medium bowl, combine the salt, sugar, citrus zest, crushed spices and flowers. Place a piece of plastic wrap over a shallow baking dish or rimmed sheet large enough to accommodate the salmon. Scatter half the salt mixture over it and lay the fillet skin side down overtop. Sprinkle the rest of the cure mixture over the fish and spread it evenly to coat. Bring the edge of the plastic wrap up to cover the fish, place a small cutting board or second sheet on top and weigh it down with a can or two; refrigerate all day or overnight. After about 12 hours, unwrap the fish and flip it over, rerubbing the (now wet) cure over the surface; rewrap and return to the fridge for another 12 hours. Wipe or rinse off the salt mixture, pat the fish dry and slice it thinly to serve with crackers, flatbread or bagels, and cream cheese, labneh or whipped creamy (Macedonian-style) feta, with nasturtiums or other edible flowers for garnish.

How to care for gifted Easter flowers - WTOPWednesday, March 31, 2021
Soon, it will be time to hit your local florist or grocery store to pick out flowers for your holiday celebration — whether you’re seeing someone in person, or simply dropping off well wishes.This year, florists have seen more curbside deliveries and loose flowers as gifts, opposed to traditional centerpiece orders for family dinner tables, but the desire for customary flowers like Easter lilies, tulips and hyacinths has not changed.“Potted Easter lilies and tulips are very popular this time of year,” said Missy Willson, owner of My Enchanted Florist in Sandy Spring, Maryland. “Stock flowers in lavenders, pinks and soft pastel shades are also popular. It’s a very fragrant flower and the colors are perfect for Easter.”Willson said if you end up with potted lilies, they like to be in bright light, but they need to be kept in a cool area.“The soil should be dry to the touch — because if you overwater them, you’ll kill the plant. Leaves will start to turn yellow and then they start to die.”Other popular flowers available for Easter include daffodils, hyacinth, grape hyacin... https://wtop.com/holidays/2021/03/how-to-care-for-gifted-easter-flowers/
