Stuff I’m vibing for Fall.

fall-mood

I haven't don't one of these mood boards in quite some time! Months and months! But I've been spotting lots of cool stuff lately (reading tons of catalogs while home for holidays!). This fall, I'm totally feeling this dusty pastel vibe. Fall doesn't have to be all terracottas and browns.  Of course, I like a nice sculptural black as punctuation in any room, and that bar cart is the most 80's … [Read more...]

Sexy Living.

I saw this over on Domaine this AM, and wowza, is this, like the sexiest apartment you've ever seen? Maybe too sexy? I'm definitely not sexy enough or cool enough to live here, but I do love it! It's in Milan designed by Vincenzo De Cotiis, featured in Architectural Digest France, photographed by Julian Hargreaves. Sorry for the lazy re-posting. Some days are for posting original content, some … [Read more...]

It could be from Cb2 or something, but if it feels unique and cool, it makes the cut. If not, buh-bye. This is Manhattan, we need to be ruthless. Is there anything more special than the stuff that artists make? I'm slowly collecting a whole range of artist made little goodies, from … [Read more...]

DESIGN | Concrete Jungle.

I was perusing photographer Douglas Friedman AKA The Facinator's portfolio, which is fabulous and totally worth a look, or two, or three, when I came across this "facinating" place. I know Concrete Jungle is a cheesy title, but LOOK, it's literally a concrete jungle! No idea where or what this is, other than it's badass, looks like a 70's porn set placed in the jungle and I want … [Read more...]

My NJ Bedroom’s Epic Gallery Wall.

I should call this post, how to redo a room without buying any furniture. Every summer for the past 8 years, I pack up out of Manhattan and go stay with my in laws at the Jersey Shore for the summer. We stay in my husband's childhood bedroom, which my MIL did over for us when we got married. She did some nice beige grasscloth, and a matching  furniture set of all wood brown furniture. Yes, I lived … [Read more...]
