i’m dying to show you


seriously about to die about what i saw today uptown


and this shot certainly does not do it justice…in the least (obliviously)! but i went with tony to repair one of the chests for j.a. and get a shot of them since i’m in town. and, ok, and i wanted to see the place too, i admit! but i was not prepared for its magnificence! i wish i could show you the exquisite picture i took but it just seems unethical since it’s not even really finished yet, but oh, i know you would flip! the place is a knockout in every detail, the rugs, the lighting, every surface, color, the view! it’s an absolute dream. i’m going to ask to photograph it once all my products have arrived and are in perfect order! (one more mirror to go, please god, no chips)!


there were so many exquisite things there including this throw folded over the back of sofa and it looked amazing! ( i went to the website afterward :)

it was an absolute visual feast in every way with hints of turquoise, periwinkle, silvers, black, white, blues, grays…yummmmmmmmm!


well, we’re gonna hit the town now, so, happy thanksgiving if i don’t get to tell you tomorrow! i love and am thankful for you, hope you know!

    Hi Claudia,

    I love the night stand! And the rug and throw! I can’t wait to see more!
    What building is that? It’s fabulous! Is that where J.A. is located? I’m sorry I’m not familiar enough with NY to know…
    I hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

    Bonnie :)

    Claudia, we wait with baited breath for more photos- if the corner of the bed and the nightstand are anything to go by. I am going to New York at the end of January and I am very excited (my Christmas present to me)….xv

    Happy Thanksgiving my dear!
    p.s. the building facade alone is magnificent!


  5. Kathy Thacker replied:

    That building is fab. I think it would be wonderful inside by just seeing the outside. Nice blog. Kathy

    actually i just shot that building on the way cause it was so beautiful. but the real one is much more modern and the views are surreal! i am so torn, i want to post the pic so bad, it’s just directly opposite from the bed, a sitting room and the tv area. it’s totally inspired me to get back in the saddle!

    Happy Thanksgiving Claudia!!! I love that little gilt gold headboard peeking out the side :)

    Happy Thanksgiving Claudia.
    I’m grateful to have met you.
    Beautiful post! Nice building especially.

    That photo is magnificent! And I love the glass chest of drawers. Where can I find something like that?


  10. theparisapartment replied:

    i’m grateful to have met you too constance, and all my blog friends, i never knew i’d fall so in love! thanks too, lil bee for the compliment. i have a master craftsman who makes those pieces. it’s an art, (down to the 32ndth of and inch :) and he’s a temperamental artist. it’s worth it cause making these is like working with eggs, and these pieces had their share of drama. still not finished as a drawer face has to be replaced! ugggg!


  11. Paul replied:

    Wow, what a building! Amazing.
    I hope that you had a geat Thanksgiving, Claudia.


  12. Michelle replied:

    That building is amazing. . .just curious who the JA is your designing for??? I have a good guess! Can’t wait to see the grand finale!



  13. Melissa Lewis - Off The Wall replied:

    Oh my, Thanksgiving in NY, how fabulous! Hope you are having a great time, though how could you not, right?

    Can’t wait for more photos:)

    that nightstand is a jewel. I love it here. I’m thankful to Lil Bee and Franki Durbin for leading me here…
