My flight from Chicago to New York yesterday morning was inexpensive, punctual and quick, clocking in at just over an hour and a half. So far I’m having a fantastic trip. I checked into a great little hotel (more on that later), worked for a couple of hours and met a longtime friend, Matt, for […]

This Week: B4 It Was Cool (Soho, NYC)

This Week: B4 It Was Cool (Soho, NYC)

I stumbled upon the Soho salvage store B4 It Was Cool last May, but because the showroom’s unassuming entrance lacks display windows and signage, I very nearly passed it by.  Luckily, my curiosity was piqued by the bald, tattooed, rather tough looking but smiley gentleman who sat in front of the store, enjoying the near-perfect […]

Designer Spotlight: Ani Antreasyan (of Ani Ancient Stone)

Facebook status updates are a mixed bag to be sure, but I love Ani Ancient Stone owner Ani Antreasyan’s, which say things like, “working on a garden in the Hampton’s,” or “enjoying the vista from my client’s Manhattan balcony.”  I guess that’s what happens when people follow their dreams – more interesting Tweets.

Open House: What’s James wearing?

“What are you wearing now?” I write in an e-mail to interior designer, blogger and today’s Open House star James Andrew.  I’m wearing a pair of jeans, a t-shirt and my loafers, and I’m hoping the What Is James Wearing? blogger will cop to wearing something equally sloppy (but I already know he won’t).
