Whether she's creating holiday dinner party menus or designing the perfect California wardrobe edit, Jenni Kayne is the queen of that effortless Golden State aesthetic. If your lifestyle aspirations include joy-sparking (and Martha Stewart- and Goop-approved) activities like hosting the perfect beachside picnic or gathering the best herbs for drying, then you'll want to pick the Los Angeles-bred designer's first book, Pacific Natural: Simple Seasonal Entertaining, which lands on shelves this spring.
Published by Rizzoli, the 256-page hardcover ($45) offers "practical and inspiring" hands-on tips and ideas for living a balanced and stylish life during every season of the year. Similar to Kayne's popular blog, Rip & Tan (where the designer spotlights inspiring women and shares insiders' tips on skincare, beauty, and design, to name a few), expect how-to guides on everything from entertaining loved ones in winter to healthy recipes and floral arrangement ideas for spring.
The book also offers seasonal home interior design inspiration (starring Kayne's own West Coast abodes — so expect cameos of her iconic D'Orsay flats), grocery lists for pantry staples and other kitchen essentials to have on hand, the best fruits and veggies to plant for every landscape (it's about time you get that balcony planter together, right?), and more.
Oh, and the foreword was written by the OG DIY lifestyle queen Stewart herself — and if her chic stamp of approval is any indication, we wouldn't be surprised is this is just the beginning of Kayne's incredibly cool empire.
Into it? Kayne's dreamy guide arrives March 19; pre-order the book for $28.46 on Amazon here.
