A Vintage-Inspired Home Office

My husband and I have a dream, and a very real goal, to buy a house that we can retire in. On my list of things I'd love for the house to include is an extra bedroom that I could turn into a beautiful home office. I envision a very Instagram-worthy desk, a place to store all of the PR samples I get, and some pretty tufted accent chairs: where I can enjoy coffee breaks with my husband, who luckily also works from home.

When I get inspiration from vintage home offices on the web, I'm most attracted to spaces with a touch of modern glam. My husband and I both like transitional decor - old meets new. For example, I'd pair a modern mirrored desk with one of these antique desk chairs. Seating isn't often the focal point of an office, but why shouldn't it be? We spend all day sitting in it, after all.


My husband and I take frequent breaks throughout the day, with a coffee break here and there and a lunch hour during which we watch one of our favorite shows togeth…

Easy Salted Caramel Sauce


One of my favorite flavors for fall is salted caramel. I love to drizzle it over pancakes, pumpkin cake, brownies; the possibilities are truly endless. This homemade caramel sauce couldn't be easier. You don't need a candy thermometer, and you don't have to pour cream into boiling sugar to create a sizzling, splattering hot mess. You simply mix everything then heat it up. Just like most of my treats, I made this dairy-free for my daughters, though you can easily swap in heavy cream if you wish. Note: It doesn't harden enough for candy making or caramel apples. This is strictly a recipe for liquid caramel sauce.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy milk or coconut milk for dairy-free (or whole milk)
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil or butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


Combine and whisk 6-8 min over med low heat. Do the plate test (pictured above) to make sure it's ready. Before you begin making the sauce, place a plate in the fridge. To test the caramel sauce, spoon some onto the cold plate and run your finger through it. If the caramel stays separated, then it's done! No thermometer needed. Refrigerate to thicken. It may become a little crystallized upon thickening; simply stir before using. Put it through the canning process to store it at room temp or to give away for some handmade holiday gifts.

To package it as a pretty handmade gift, use these jelly jars and chocolate-brown ribbon.

*Add in some pumpkin pie spice for pumpkin salted caramel sauce, or even better - bourbon! Serve it over your favorite fall dessert or a big bowl of ice cream.
