I spotted this door near the garment district a few weeks ago and love the retro feel of this color combination.
Starting Monday, I will be posting my pictures of the Kip's Bay Showhouse. It was okay this year but very "New York decorator" leaning. This is fine but not as much a style I'm drawn to as other styles are.
I was talking to a woman on the street as I walked away who wanted to know what all the fuss was about and if it was worth going. I gave her my opinion and explained to her what it was all about and that the money goes to charity so whether the show is good or bad it is worth it if you have the money. We got to talking about design and money and how she would love help when she "won the lottery". Although I do think designers should be fairly compensated for the work they do, I truly don't believe you should have to win the lottery to work with a designer and have good design surrounding you. There is plenty of furniture out there that doesn't cost a fortune and that doesn't even include thrift and consignment shops. So, I have decided to try to put together a more affordable option inspired by each room I post.
If only I had thought about giving the woman my blog information instead of my business card. I guess I was too hot and hungry to think straight.
