I Took the 30-Day Squat Challenge and Here's What Happened

  I Took the 30-Day Squat Challenge and Here's What Happened I completed more than 3,000 squats, which is at least 2,900 more than I would have normally done.This is a problem because my butt used to be one of my best physical features. It really knew how to rock a pair of jeans and made up for my unexceptional breasts. I was even in style when the J.Lo's of the world made the butt a fashion must-have.

The kitchen is one of the most challenging design spaces in the home. It would be great if it were both aesthetically-pleasing and functional, a room that can look good while withstanding the dangers of your favorite marinara sauce bubbling away. And with the transition from summer to fall looming, it's a great time to shake things up in the kitchen (that is, if you've secretly been looking for an excuse!).

We're leaning on the creative mind of Shea McGee, founder of Studio McGee and designer behind Food Network’s Fantasy Kitchen Giveaway for some end-of-summer tips. Shea is on the front line of design and has a good feel for what’s trending, even before it hits your Pinterest feed—like her current love for furniture-inspired islands.

Mixed Metals

As we head towards the end of summer, we’re also starting to see more and more mixed metal kitchens pop up. Shea is feeling particularly partial to polished nickel faucets paired with with brass hardware. “I like the way the different metal colors play off each other, giving the kitchen a more organic, less manufactured feel.”

Organic Textures

Like any good meal, kitchen design relies partly on texture. Particularly in vogue are organic textures like woven baskets, wire trays, wooden shelves, and fun textiles.

Time-Worn Materials

Using materials that are actually worn by time or just look the part doesn’t mean you should be rummaging through your garage for anything that looks past its prime. But don’t be afraid to mix in a rustic, glazed terracotta backsplash or some vintage accessories to add character to your kitchen. Shea likes materials with honed, matte, and and even patina finishes. This works even (and especially) if you have a more modern setting. If you add time-worn materials to a more rustic or traditional kitchen, the juxtaposition effect can get lost. If you want to maintain somewhat of a modern looking kitchen, it’s important to find a balance.

Mixing Rustic & Modern

You’ve probably noticed that contrast and juxtaposition are big themes in kitchen design right now. Mixed metals, time-worn materials in a modern setting, and the inclusion of warm neutrals in all white kitchens to name a few. We add one more with Shea’s suggestions of combining rustic and modern design such as open-shelving or streamlined cabinets with a farmhouse sink. “Mixing rustic and modern artifacts adds a playfulness to your kitchen that’s hard to rival. It also feels timeless which is always nice!”

Furniture-inspired islands are kitchen islands that break the mold of big box cabinetry. Not that there’s anything wrong with the traditional island, but the trend definitely seems to heading towards more open-style kitchen islands with built-in shelving. Shea’s particularly fond of islands with honed, matte, and even patina finishes.

Farm to table? Not exactly. Consider displaying fresh citrus or seasonal fruits in bowls. Cut branches and put them in a jar on your countertop or put a potted herb garden by your sink. Integrating nature into your kitchen setting can add a playful and seasonal touch without a big investment.

5 Easy Ways to Cut Down on Kitchen Waste .
It's a hard truth that we are battling a very real food waste problem in our world today. Earlier this year, a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)-funded study revealed that American consumers waste almost one pound of food per day, accounting for 225 to 290 pounds per person per year. Those are some sobering figures. We are already big fans of cooking with scraps and try our darnedest to be mindful of our shopping habits; but we also know how quickly we can fall into old habits when statistics like the one above are out of sight and out of mind. In our busy day-to-day, there are actually easy ways we can be more cognizant of our cooking and shopping habits, as well as adjustments in the choices we make. They may be small, but the hope is to build on cumulative consumer habits to change the larger cultural landscape surrounding waste. Here are just a handful of tips to get you going. We'd love to know what effective ways you've adopted in cutting down on food and kitchen waste in your home, so be sure to share those with us below. 6 Doable Ways People Are Going Plastic-Free by Camryn Rabideau Go in with a Plan Food shopping is the easiest place to start. Start by making a grocery list or devising a meal plan for the week (including leftovers). Menu planning may seem like a lot of work at first, but you'll be working towards reducing the amount of unused (especially perishable) ingredients, with the added benefit of saving money along the way.
