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. It's the second store by brother sister duo, Allison Julius and Louis Marra, who were both in the store when I walked in, and are quite delightful! Maison 24 is offering up a whole lotta look: Neon, graffiti, lucite, glitter, fur, spikes, skulls abound and at first glance, the shop seems very cool, … [Read more...]

Bachelor Pad: The Sources!

Sketch42 Bachelor pad desk

Thanks for all the sweet comments yesterday! I totally loved doing this place, so it makes me glad that you guys get what I was going for and like the work I did! 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...]

Anyway, there are exciting things happening! West … [Read more...]

A room for no one.


Not particularly balanced (too much shag, to many leggy chairs) but I pulled it together for no particular reason, and I kinda like the vibe. A little feminine, but in a cool way. And that rug is amazing. HERE.  Stools from West Elm, Chairs from Jayson Home,  Couch is on sale at ABC HERE.. Pouf from Clayton Gray Home HERE. Print by Christian Chaize. … [Read more...]

Warm & Cozy Bedroom Inspiration.

I don't know who I envision sleeping in this room: a cool boy, a very cool couple, a single dude? I don't know... I just know that I like it. And with a  few tweaks ( change the rug and color of blanket) I would also put a girl in it. Original room is by Ryan Korban. My version is much less sexy, but I kind of did that on purpose. 1. Pendelton Blanket $218   2. Table Lamp … [Read more...]
