The last bite: How apeeling!

We’ve picked this poached pear dish from Red Pump Kitchen for two reasons: First, it’s pretty enough to appear on a holiday postcard. But mostly because, with Marsala wine, saffron, cocoa and hazelnut, it’s the perfect punctuation to a winter meal.

The room grew up—navy, hot pink, bright yellow and bold patterns—and eventually won the Washington Post Kids Room Contest in 2012, and was featured in Susannah Salk’s 2014 book, Decorate Fearlessly. But the pair have loved decorating (and […]

Kid’s best friend: Little Rascal

Rascal the Bengal cat is a very good sport. The loyal sidekick to nearly 4-year-old Hannah Harris, he doesn’t mind being carried from room to room as Hannah plays around. Says Hannah’s mom, Aarika, the 10-year-old cat can jump in your arms on command and enjoys being worn around the neck. And Rascal doesn’t mind when […]

August ABODE! In this month’s issue…

The August issue of Abode is on stands now. Here’s what’s inside… A Q&A with landscape designer, author and lecturer Cole Burrell. A look inside interior designer Marta Tice’s favorite room in her home. The debate about dining rooms: Are formal spaces on their way out?

Marta says her favorite room in her home is the living room. “Although it appears to be formal, it is quite comfortable. The large chinoiserie mirror over the mantle reflects the light from the windows. I so enjoy having company for conversation while we can view a beautiful pasture with horses off the deck from the window. This space serves as a den, study and living room. My dog, which is one half Jack Russell and one half Cairn Terrier (like Toto from The Wizard of Oz) says, ‘There’s no place like home.’” Photo: Virginia Hamrick
