My Little Piece of NYC. Founnnd It!!

Guess what, darlings? We found and signed for our NYC apartment last week! It's been such a crazy month, and I can't really afford to lose focus, but how could I not with these decorating fancies dancing through my head? I imagine our place will be a delicious mix of old and new, modern and vintage. Like this...

...that type of juxtaposition drives me mad in all kinds of good ways. I would also love to incorporate elements of what Cassandra calls "relaxed glam." I'm utterly enamored with the idea of unpretentious glamour. Love eyes, I tell you.


Of course, I'll throw in one of my bar carts. Duh. Just so necessary. Can you envision the holiday socials I'll throw? And the white blanket of snow (before it turns to brown slush haha) that my guests will have to trudge through after it magically falls on the island of Manhattan? I can :)

What do you think? Not too new with lots of character.

Right up my alley. I adore the exposed brick, high ceilings, and warm, worn hardwoods. And the molding. I  love the molding. Wouldn't you be distracted too? Send design ideas my way. They'll help me not to waste more time on Pinterest ;)
