It's official. I am becoming an upper east sider this next month. Finally found an apartment that fits all my favorite furnishings. I have grown out of my adorable little studio so quickly but its going to be so hard to let it go. I have so many wonderful memories here. The upper west side will forever have a place in my heart. At first I was considering parting ways with all of my furniture and just getting all new pieces. However, there is one that I will never part with and that is my beautiful antique wood dresser that was my very first furniture purchase here in NYC. It's made so beautifully and will live with me forever. I am convinced that no apartment or home is complete without a beautiful antique wood dresser...

I love what I do. Have I mentioned this lately? I am constantly getting emails asking for my advice from young students or those who want to change their careers and get into interior design. What's the best way you can learn how to develop your craft?
My answer is probably one of my favorite pastimes, research & development. Practice decorating your own space and use it as a laboratory. The other part, indulge yourself obsessively in books and magazines in your field of choice. Continue learning. This last issue of Lonny, really did that for me...

As most of you know, my obsession with the doors of my wonderful city just had me on one...I. cant. stop. Every time I snap a photo of a new door, my imagination runs wild with what could be inside these incredible apartment spaces. Every once and a while someone has their drapes pulled back and you can see inside and gaze at the lovely decor. I love this, but hank goodness for Lonny mag, who gave me a glimpse inside one of the most fabulously decorated NYC apartments I have seen in a while...

There is nothing that I love more than some drama in design. This month's issue of Lonny magazine really brought new inspiration to my little decorista eyes. The Tony Duquette feature is absolutely incredible and oozing with drama and opulence. His signature pattern, Malachite, is on full display here in his grand estate with leopard prints, velvets, black and white flooring and all the deliciousness a decorator could ever dream of...

My brain is absolutely excited that the weekend is here, despite the rain I am thoroughly enjoying finally staying in the city for the weekend. No traveling for the entire month, thank goodness! It's time for me to get things organized and clear out the things I don't use anymore (Jen totally inspired me).
More than that what I will be spending my weekend doing is getting a clear vision of what I want for my new apartment. So, as I was catching up on my favorite online glossies, I stumbled upon Michelle Adam's of Lonny Magazine and her gorgeous new bedroom. I am such a sucker for canopy beds and in this issue she details just how she did it so you can do it too...

This new issue of Lonny is oh so good! There is way too much goodness inside, I think I have skimmed the pages more than once. My most favorite feature was this incredibly colorful and whimsical home decorated by my lady friend, Jaime Mears. Move over Jonathan Adler, this girl has got some new fun color and whimsical talent thats taking over...

Since yesterday I raved about my obsession for Domino, today I had to share my latest favorite office space craze...(especially since its the office of ex-domino editors). Welcome to the offices of Lonny. So stylish and fun, how fun would a day of work be like in the likes of these well decorated rooms? I am smitten with the beautiful white brick walls and the great artwork. Artwork always speaks volumes to me about the chic-ness of a space. Right behind that is lighting and the gorgeous chrome arch lamp...i LOVE it.

Oh that Lonny magazine just never gets old to me...the latest issue is absolutely fabulous. My favorite space is the space of Angel Dormer, West Elm's Style Manager. Her Manhattan apartment caught my eye at first sight (especially her super hip office space). It's stylish, playful and full of vintage style that would make any girl swoon. Totally based on 60's decor, she nails that modern/chic california vibe that I have always adored.
Take a moment with me and revel in her marvelous decor style.

I am just completely smitten with the sophistication of this room from Celerie Kemble's lonny spread.
First of all, the woman is a genius with decor, the execution of her vintage & modern combos is completely majorly spot on. Oh, how I love the deep rich green with wood chair and ottoman pairings. How about the black side table with gold embellishments, so glamorous. This is definitely a note-worthy look. I want it all now.

Perfecting the art of displaying your art is something that is learned over time.
There are various different approaches to the execution, there will never be a perfect way.
What I can tell you is that when carefully done and thought out,
the proper presentation naturally happens
and the outcome can be magnificent (even if you aren't a decorator).
In the latest issue of Lonny Magazine,
(october-november 2010...go take a look its sooooo good!),
I found so many fantastic images that are sure to inspire your inner art gallerina!
