Unless you’ve been living under an online rock, you’re probably very familiar with the amazingness that is Sarah Sherman Samuel. Not only is she the founder of the {gorgeous!} inspirational blog, Smitten Studio, she also has a enviable eye for design {have you seen her house AND her cabin on Instagram?! Swoon} and is the owner and creative director behind her decor brand, A Sunny Afternoon. Known for her super chic cutting boards and printed napkins, anything Sarah touches is gold which is why, when we were thinking of something kitchen related for our Holiday Boutique, she immediately sprang to mind!


We worked with Sarah to create a custom two-toned  board out of a gorgeous maple and walnut – just for us! When we said we wanted a fun shape with a simple and timeless detail we had no idea just how spot on she was going to nail this one. We’re obsessed with the unique octagonal design and the color blocked effect. It looks gorgeous styled on a shelf next to your display of pretties; ceramics collection, candlesticks or plates would all be lovely. It will also add an extra oomph of design flare to your next dinner party- place your favorite cheese on it and bam, you’ve made a statement.


And the cutest part? Sarah works with her dad on these- sawing, sanding and staining each by hand. You can feel the love in each board, making it the THE gift for someone you adore this holiday season.

Ok, you really don’t have to buy this serving board for the cute cook in your life. You can buy it for yourself {shhh! we won’t tell anybody. we did it too!}. We’re certain, kitchen lover or not, if you at all enjoy the pretty things in life, you’ll die over this limited edition {there’s only 25!!} board. It’s the perfect addition to your collection of items that will last you a lifetime!
