I am loving these chaise lounge style chairs from Zoe, they just look so comfortable and casual and chic all at the same time.
This lamp is from designer Pieke Bergmans, he has created what i think is a magical object. I love the optical illusion of this lamp...matched with the chairs, you've got a pretty unique setting! Visit Pieke Bergman's site and give yourself a treat.
Friday again, and it is sunny and warm in New York City! A few things get your weekend going. xoxo Last night C and i went to see Morrisey at Carnegie Hall, although we aren't massive fans, C, scored free tickets so we checked it out. Little did we know we would LOVE it, the Courteeners from Manchester opened, and then Morrisey came on and the house went truly mad. I really love his voice and seeing a truly professional musician perform is always magic. Here is a clip.
This past weekend we had a house full of guests upstate and took them all to see the Hudson Valley home of the late Artist, Frederic Church, called Olana. The Moorish architecture and the attention to detail is stunning. I only have exterior photos, but the website www.olana.org has plenty of information and photos.
PS for those of you with children, it was a hit for all ages.
The attention to detail was amazing, just look at that roof!
I feel like there is something so satisfying about organizing a closet, a kitchen pantry, or an office space. I love how these images make it all beautiful too, their own little everyday pieces of art.
This image is both art and organization melded together, we all have little mementos, housing them in this sweet little open tray makes it almost a piece of art. I mean look at the buttons next to the picture. From Living etc.
I love how this shoe just sticks out, saying 'hey, look at me'. There is art in these drawers and compartments. From Interior Divine
I used to wear overalls all the time in my early 20's (i feel so old writing that) but it is true. i had a pair in purple, blue jean and white. I loved them and apparently, they are back. Although, I dont remember them being $595 dollars...Jeez! From here
Where did this week go, it just sort of went pouf, gone. Which makes me feel like time is racing by us in warp speed. Spring (thankfully) is around the corner, our reward for enduring winter. I love being back in the world of four seasons, each one having their own unique beauty. But spring is really something else on the east coast, with the cherry blossom trees going off, the tulips everywhere, the trees going green again, it is hands down my favorite season (although fall is a close second). So here's to Spring and Friday the 13th.
My lovely twin sister Lisa has a problem, can you please help? She lives in a very sweet craftsman house with awesome details and great bones. These pics are of her living room. Awhile ago, she took the advice of a 'friend' who suggested hounds tooth (red and white), yikes. After receiving the newly upholstered arm chairs, the zig zag of the hounds tooth mixed in with the craftsman style was said to induced headaches. But some people seem to disagree. What should she do? Keep them? Reupholster, dye the fabric beige....help us out here peeps.xoxo
I live in New York City with my husband and 4 year old son, Augus and 2 year old boy, Cole St. John.
