As the new season of spring arrives, we are reminded of the beauty and potential of new beginnings. The air is alive with the buzz of nature and the promise of growth, and the world around us seems to awaken from its winter slumber. A beautifully crafted table, set against a backdrop of vibrant greenery, invites us to celebrate this season of renewal and embrace the joy of nature's cycles.

The delicate ceramic pieces arranged on the table, each one uniquely crafted by  DBO Home, create a sense of harmony and balance that mirrors the natural world outside. The rough texture of the stoneware clay contrasts beautifully with the smooth glaze, evoking the intricate interplay of the natural elements in springtime. The layered linen tablecloth adds a touch of sophistication and elegance, and the simple arrangement of fresh flowers and greenery brings the space to life with the joyous energy of the season.

As we gather around this table, we are reminded of the beauty and wonder of the world around us, and the endless potential for growth and renewal. With each passing day, the sun shines a little brighter, the flowers bloom a little fuller, and the world becomes a little more alive. This season of spring is a time to celebrate the beauty of nature and the endless possibilities of new beginnings, and we are honored to share this moment with you.

Asparagus Frittata With Burrata and Herb Pesto

by David Tanis, adapted from NY Times Cooking


1 small bunch medium asparagus, tough bottoms removed
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup basil leaves, plus a few small basil leaves for garnish
1 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
8 large eggs, lightly beaten
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 ball of fresh burrata, about ½ pound, at room temperature



    Step 1
    Rinse asparagus and pat dry. Cut into 1-inch pieces on the diagonal, or into julienne strips if preferred. Set aside.

    Step 2
    In blender or small food processor, puree olive oil, basil and parsley to make a thin pesto. Season with salt and pepper.

    Step 3
    Put a 10-inch cast-iron skillet or other nonstick omelet pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add butter and swirl to coat pan, then add asparagus. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring for about a minute without browning.

    Step 4
    Quickly pour in eggs and stir with a wooden spoon, as if making scrambled eggs. Tilt pan and left mixture at the edges to allow any runny egg from the top to make its way to the bottom. After 3 or 4 minutes, the frittata should be mostly set. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. 

    Step 5
    Lay a lid over the skillet, and turn off the heat. Leave for a minute or so, until frittata is moist and just done. (Alternatively, place pan under a hot broiler for a minute or so.)

    Step 6
    Set whole burrata in the center of frittata. Drizzle with herb pesto. Pierce burrata with tip of a knife and spoon contents over frittata. Cut frittata into wedges and serve directly from pan, garnished with basil leaves.

    Angela Romero is a New York based prop and interior stylist. She was born in San Diego, California to Mexican parents. She grew up a few minutes from the border and spent a lot of time between Mexico and the US visiting friends and family and enjoying the rich Mexican culture. Growing up in two countries greatly influenced her artistic perspective and it encouraged her to regard the world with curiosity.

    Angela earned her degree in Visual Communications from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Francisco and went on to work in Visual Merchandising and Window Display. She fell in love with concepting and executing window designs and wanted to pursue it on a larger scale. She was introduced to the world of prop & soft goods styling by a friend and decided to leave her full time job and become a freelance Prop Stylist. She has never looked back and is always in pursuit of the next project where she can collaborate with other creatives and produce beautiful imagery. She draws inspiration from her travels abroad and interprets them into her styling. From changing architecture to diverse furniture design and changing elements in nature, travel has broadened her perspective. Angela is in constant search of the special pieces that manifest into beautiful visual storytelling.
