Feeling blue (or green, or red)? Today, we’re shopping the spectrum of hues from Canopy, the site that curates stylish finds from Amazon’s enormous catalog. Check out what we’ve come up with: (далее…)
Don’t let the April 1st snowstorms threatening part of the Northeast fool you, spring is on way. Although some of us can’t open up the windows and let it in (I’m a little jealous of those of you who can), you can prep for the sunny months ahead. Start shopping for planters now and pick up some tips from the green thumb pros. That way you’ll be ready to maximize the greenery both inside and out of your home. In the meantime I’ll be crowding my windowsills with sprouting seedlings, waiting for the temperatures to climb. (далее…)
I am a big fan of New York City-based interior design firm The New Design Project and was stoked to hear from them about this new project. This absolutely stunning loft is a dream and furnished impeccably, including a collection of lighting that is to die for. Fresh and serene, this is a Park Avenue loft with a decidedly downtown feel. The space is refined and elegant but modern and relaxed. Sculptural lighting, such as the Lariat 3 by Apparatus Studio and String Light by Michael Anastassiades, adds drama and emphasizes the high ceilings, whilst oversized artwork and bold textiles, such as the Diego rug by Eskayel, add color and depth. Iconic mid-century pieces inspired by the designs of Hans Wegner, Poul Kjaerholm and Eero Saarinen, are paired with more contemporary custom millwork, such as the black and brass floating wall shelves, floating upholstered bench, and marble and black oak nightstands. A curated collection of accessories in a mix of sizes, shapes and materials, completes the scheme.
California is one of those places people (at least the ones who didn’t grow up there) dream about moving to some day. Between the glamour of Hollywood, the laid back vibes and the beautiful beaches, it’s definitely a desirable destination. But have you ever wondered what living on the California coast really looks like? We combed through rental listings to find apartments, condos and houses in cities up and down the coastline, so you can see for yourself. (далее…)
Name: Jacqueline Rousseau
Location: West Village, NYC
Size: 400 square feet
Years lived in: 4 years; Rented
After living in the UK for nearly a decade, Jacqueline returned stateside with a blank slate. To the envy of her friends and fellow New Yorkers like myself, Jacqueline settled into a sun-filled studio in the West Village. A white Ektorp lounge chair left by a previous tenant was the jumping-off point for what has developed into a very comfortable place to live and work. (далее…)
Location: Adams Morgan/Dupont Circle — Washington, D.C.
I live on the 7th floor of a building built in 1923 in Adams Morgan/Dupont Circle neighborhood (I can never tell which it is), there are definitely some quirks to such an old building, the elevator for example is terrifying — a fair-weather metal box that is not built for anyone that has an aversion to elevators that may or may not work. Though the building is pretty bare bones, arriving into my 7th floor apartment always seems like a breath of fresh air, especially with east-facing windows that pour the morning sunlight in and a direct view of the Washington Monument.

Name: Gil Melott
Location: Logan Square — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 879 square feet
Years lived in: Renting 6 months
It’s a shame you can only see Gil’s bright, modern Logan Square loft. As a self-described «sensory driven guy,» this designer’s space isn’t just pretty to look at. A mix of textures and materials blend beautifully to stimulate all the senses. Gil is the founder of Studio 6F, and his home reflects his style, work and passions. Born in Texas, he now calls Chicago home, along with his American bulldog, Chap. (далее…)
