trying for a new york state of mind
hey guys! how’s everything? i hope all is well in your world. i should be packing but started searching for window boxes for the challenge. what if we really did have a flowerbox face off and between ny, paris, san fran and any other city that wanted to play along? i’m going to ny today and will be sure to get a box going on my balcony/fire escape right away! if you’re into it, let’s brainstorm! anybody want to make a logo?
anyway, of course a minute of searching turns into an hour before you know it so i better keep on moving.
the photos above came from an incredible photographer right off the bat on flickr.com/photos/blende
another i found on the flower quest societygarlic.blogspot.com
and these guys just signed on this great apartment in paris and i just wanted to say congratulations!
ps if you have a great shot of a window box post it and let me know!
ok, anyway below was the post i started out with, it’s a chaise i have in the city, one that i’m selling for the same client i mentioned in my last post. i’d love to keep it but have no place for it and it’s just too hideous to live with as is.
this would be my inspiration for it if i kept it.
yes it’s true, i’m officially going to be out of my store in the city, besides a few things in showrooms, want to liquidate. i don’t have a lot but what i have needs a little work like this piece. it’s a classic i’ve seen done in many ways including this by chair couture:
i mean, it’s nothing new, mai oui
but is lots of fun to be around and so makes a boudoir. looking for it i found these done in the past. here we upholstered it in cream silk for a christian dior shoot
here with a white faux fur
and i’ve had it in cane. the one i have now is a great piece from the 40’s with the original finish and is in perfect condition. if you’re into it, let me know. otherwise it’s going on ebay! (ugg)
anyway i better get back to work, i have lots to do before i go. ny’s going to be tough city life, lots of grunt work that i’ll be glad when it’s over! but i’m not going to overdo it like usual and come home exhausted everyday. i vow here and now to stay centered and balanced. (right)! well, knowing i should is half the battle!
more from the other side!
