New Milwaukee Restaurant: Millioke

Milwaukee has been getting a lot of fun restaurants lately. I visited one on Friday night with my friend Mary — Millioke.

The food was great, and the atmosphere was awesome. Four things I love about this space (pardon by iphone pics).

1. The beautiful old arches divided two sides of the space.

2. The cluster lighting they used to make the space modern.

3. The leather chairs and tufted bench at the tables and in the bar.

4. All the mix-matching. If you notice there are several types of chairs used throughout. It made the space eclectic and unexpected.

I really like the cluster lights that they had all over the restaurants. Here are some fun options from West Elm to bring it home:

Outdoor Dinner Party

Happy Tuesday. The weekend got away from me. It was busy but very nice and relaxing. I went up to visit my sister and her husband this weekend, and it took it as one last chance to celebrate summer. So we decided to have an outdoor colorful dinner party. We wanted to string up lights in her trees, but we realized we didn’t have enough so we created a make shift chandelier with the lights we did have, some branches, and a tomato cage from her garden. It created a perfect ambiance for our last summer dinner.

Looks like it could have been one of our last hot weekends, this weekend it is suppose to be only 65 degrees!

Navy + Blue Dinnerware

If I ever had a vacation home….I couldn’t help but fill the cupboards with all varieties of blue and white dishes. I love mixing different patterns together. With all the variety you can set a different table any day you want!
