Room NYC: Live Like a Local

16

28.9.11

I’ve been super excited to share the stylin’ apartment that we rented in Manhattan!! And this is it! It took a while to find apartments that seemed to have it all: great location, reasonable price, and a heap of design style. When I narrowed down my list of contenders, I found what I was looking for with Room NYC! All their apartments look like they are plucked from within the pages of House & Home magazine – so how could I resist?!

Check out the gorgeous full kitchen! And, the location was amazing! It was right across the street from a subway station in the heart of SoHo. Road noise was a given, but it is New York, and even I got used to it after one night. The tag line for Room NYC is “Live Like a Local”, and that pretty much sums it up, only I’d probably say “Live like a local who rents their apartment out for photo shoots” would be more accurate. And I’ll take that over a cramped hotel room any day!

I love the weather we’re having here today! Nice and sunny, with just the right amount of crispness in the air. Hope you’re having a great day too!

The Stylist’s Guide to NYC

I just got back from New York early this morning, and I have so much fun stuff to share with you! Us ladies had a great time in NYC!!

Before I share about our trip, I owe author & stylist Sibella Court a huge thank you! Knowing that I was headed to New York, I ordered The Stylists Guide to NYC as soon as I heard about it, and devoured it cover to cover. I knew that I was in good hands when I read that Paula Rubenstein was her favourite store, because it was my top find the last time I was in NYC. The graphic designer in me appreciates the thick, toothy paper, and beautiful photography throughout the book. The tourist in me loves the ultra-cool map that came enclosed in the book, so much better than the ugly alternatives available in the tourist shops, taking up permanent residence in my bag during the trip. And, while shopping in Anthropologie, (avoiding one of many insane rain storms) I noticed that it’s now for sale there as well! I think there should be books like this written for every major city!

Have you seen this book? Do you already have a copy? If you’re planning a trip to New York, or just want to be inspired by the beautiful and curious, you should definitely pick one up!

I just discovered this collection of wooden block letters from VintageMarvels! TGIF is right!! It’s been a busy couple of weeks at our house. I’ve been wrapping up design jobs before I head to New York! It’s been seven years since my last visit, and I can’t wait to be back!

Have a great weekend everyone!

A huge thank you to the wonderful reader that emailed me to ask if she could receive a subscription to my blog through email. At the time I didn’t even know that was possible! Well, she was fabulous and sent me examples, and info on how to do it. I am happy to say that at long, long last, I have added a (not so pretty-looking) box on the right where you too can subscribe by email to FlutterFlutter!
