making and breaking connections

hi guys! i’m in a bit of a rush because i’m trying to catch an airwave while waiting to board my flight to paris. since it’s intermittent  i’ll hold off on a big post but wanted to share at least a little of the day before the connection breaks again.

i was thrilled to get the note from ellie somerville over at lonny mag that her apartment was being featured and she used my handles on one of her transformations. it’s the little things, right? if you’re a new yorker and have a tiny space, her apartment will get your juices flowing. she got pretty creative and it’s palatial for a petit place!

voilà! her ikea wardrobe is altered with the handles.

before i cut out i just want to shout out to my girl ariel who interned at lonny this year.  before she left, she connected me with ellie and the gang to blog for them while i’m at the show. you never know who will be a liason! i’m excited and grateful, girls.

alors, more from the other side!

    Nice looking door pulls. I can’t believe a small place with the Dark walls, seems like it would make it smaller.

    Have a fun and safe trip

    Beautiful change! I love the color of the walls, the combo dark walls – white wardrobe is something different that definitely adds ‘quality’ to a small space in the city! Thanks for sharing! =)

    In my opinion it is a truly nice point of view. I usually meet people who rather say what they suppose others want to hear. Good and well written! I will come back to your site for sure!
