design moments | fun findings

My new job has already stirred up in me a renewed passion for design.  Here are some things I’m loving right now in the world of interiors.

This desk – I’m loving my fresh new work space!

fashion friday | brunching and photo adventure

Happy Friday!

Tonight, I’m super stoked to go see The Oh Hellos at City Winery with S and my roommate, C.   They’re an awesome little guy-girl duo with an addicting vibe, and they’re a little sentimental to me, too.  Check ’em out while you scroll the post:

Tomorrow, I’m meeting one of my favorite NYC girlfriends, B (go get addicted to her blog Quelle Rigolade) for brunch at Dinner on Ludlow (Thanks for the voucher, S!)  Then, we’re romping around the city on a little photo adventure, hopefully securing her a new camera in the process.  I think I’ll throw on something light and airy, like this, to survive the heat.  Snapshots of our day will surely make an appearance in the near future.

news | brooklyn bound for a new beginning

Hello my lovely readers!

I’m so excited to share a big piece of news I’ve been sitting on…

…I’ve taken a new position as an Interior Designer for Kiki Dennis Interiors!  I am so thankful for the opportunity and am thrilled to dive into something new.  My daily work is now on residential projects, a refreshing change from the institutional, corporate and museum work I’ve been doing the last few years.

The office is in Park Slope, Brooklyn – just a block from Prospect Park – and it couldn’t be a prettier neighborhood to get to know.  I’m already in love with an adorable jewelry shop down the street where I acquired this S necklace (so I can carry S’s initial over my heart, of course…aww).  It’s quickly becoming my new staple.

I’m ecstatic and honored to be a part of the small (but powerful), talented, and incredibly kind group of designers at KDI.  I’ve just wrapped up my third day, and I already feel at home thanks to these awesome new coworkers.  Here are a few of my favorite shots of their work:

Bare with me as I adjust to my new routine and get back in the swing of blogging.  More soon!

Cheers!

coffee break | tunes, words and recipes for july

Hello, July!

Do you have a few days off for Independence Day?  I do, and man, am I looking forward to the long weekend.  Until then, here are some fun things to read/stare at/listen to/browse to get you through the next few days.

To me, there’s no such thing as too much good music.  This morning, I’m entranced by the emerging UK singer/songwriter Gabrielle Aplin.  She has amazing style, and her songs really hit Home.  Don’t miss The Power of Love.

Super cool beach paintings.

A pretty great guy.

Love this little poem.

S and I made these on Saturday – YUM.

Some 4th of July recipes.

And I think I’ll make these for our rooftop gathering:

What are you doing for the 4th?
