Hospitality is in my DNA. I founded Home with a Twist, a daughter’s twist on her mother’s traditions, in memory of my mother to celebrate her life and the gifts she shared with me. Mother loved to celebrate life’s occasions – big and small.

She taught me how to prepare fabulous food, entertain guests with style and design a traditional home with a pop of color and a splash of animal print. Share my fondness of blending Mother’s mid-century style with a modern spin.

Freshly picked this morning! The Zinnia is my all time favorite garden flower. Named after the botanist Dr Johann Gottfried Zinn its Victorian meaning is thoughts of an absent friend. 

The zinnia's symbolism has evolved to mean endurance in all of it’s many forms: from youth to old age the zinnia blooms despite the broiling heat of summer. Faced with drought and bugs she puts forth beautiful flowers in many shades of red, orange, apricot, yellow, white, lilac and even lime green.

It's not too late to purchase a package of seeds so you can enjoy these jewels in your garden.🌼

Happy Father's Day!  Mr. Twist requested my French Toast casserole for brunch. I added a touch of whimsy with a fun label I made on Canva for the bottle of Trader Joe's pure maple syrup.

In June 1776, Betsy Ross was a widow struggling to run her own upholstery business. General George Washington showed her a rough design of a flag that included a six-pointed star. Betsy, a standout with the scissors, demonstrated how to cut a five-pointed star in a single snip. He asked her to make the country's flag.

Unsure she could rise to the important task Ross said to Washington, "For the red, the white and the blue. I am not certain if I can; At least I'll gladly try." 

Upon finishing her work Ross handed Washington her work saying, "Your country's flag behold!"

When you need something done ask a woman.🇺🇸

Table styling. Stacks of coffee table books on my white leather ottoman, the colors just pop. I love to open the pages beckoning guests to take a look. 

The orange book is a vintage Horizon book from 1969 and part of a collection that belonged to my mother. I remember her keeping them in our chic living room on a marble coffee table. It smells like an old library and I love it.

The vintage milk glass dish holds tiny green limes. The gold tray is new and perfectly holds a vintage Japanese tea set. 

Old and new create a modern mix.

Say hello to the Shirley Temple cake. A rich, buttery poundcake with 7Up, lemon extract and maraschino cherries. 🍒

🌻 Good Saturday morning. Lately I've enjoyed keeping flowers on my coffee tray. Silver spoons, café au lait cups, and a jar of raw sugar nestled on a silver tray greet me with a smile as I sip my first cuppa of the day.☕

Have you watched my reel sharing the secrets to long-lasting hydrangeas? The hydrangeas in the photo are over a week old!

I have a passion for color especially when it comes to wallpaper.

Tucked under the stairs our powder room features gold and turquoise blue palm leaf wallpaper. It's the perfect backdrop to our gallery of watercolor paintings by my father-in-law. I like to think of this space as an unexpected jewel box.
