Palm Springs, by way of New Jersey.

parrot breakfast

Good Morning! Yesterday I went over to my friends house for a cup of coffee and was greeted with this! Delightful! Iced coffee, home made muffins and a super chic parrot tray? YES! So I snapped a few pictures and promptly informed her that she would be on the blog tomorrow.  Later that day, I hit up the antiquated, quaint and kitschy town of Ocean Grove for lunch (Yes, it is all three of those … [Read more...]

I feel like I am master of the obvious today, but DUH, the Kelly Wearstler sales on One Kings Lane today are ridiculous. RI-DIC-U-LOUS. Its basically a mix of amazing vintage finds with her own designs and stuff... And its organized by her various styles and books: Hollywood regency, midcentury, coastal, etc. If you have a couple a grand to throw around and you want a showstopper for your room, … [Read more...]

Shop Talk: Maison 24 NYC

maison 24

Last week, I walked by a shop in my neighborhood that I've never seen before, and stopped in.

I mean, I birthed this space: design, art, photographed! I even built half the furniture in here, which was not a good thing for anyone involved. What I like about this space, is that everything is stuff almost anyone could buy. Its … [Read more...]

The Big Black Sconce.

The Brick House. I know I post about this often, but this whole sconce as art, sculpture and lighting device is just so happening for me right now. This one thing: a long armed wall light- could solve so many design problems! Like: No overhead lighting in a NYC apartment (we all know what that means: concrete ceilings and 800 lamps), large awkward wall behind sofa that one can't afford/doesnt … [Read more...]

My favorite new things around the web.

round up 2

As much as I love a good sale, I absolutely LOVE when there are new fun products in stores that we aren't sick to death of seeing yet... And I also love getting catalogs. Like a lot. Even bad and boring ones like Smith & Noble... (And now after I read them I throw them right in the garbage, instead of letting them pile up. It's my new life.) Anyway, there are exciting things happening! West … [Read more...]
