November 9, 2015

I was catching up on my Pinterest feed late the other night (thank you, insomnia!) when I stumbled upon an image of foodie extraordinaire Katie Lee’s dining room in her former Manhattan abode.  I know we’ve all seen this image (as well as the rest of her home) a million times, but what really caught…
