thinking of my room in new york...


as i start to think about returning to new york, i begin to salivate over my gorgeous washington heights apartment. the entrance hall is perfection. and my roommates with their light-colored paint and potted plants and vintage trunks have done wonders for their bedrooms. the living room is lovely and spacious. but i left before i could properly outfit my room. so now i'm dreaming nothing but home decor.

How fun to decorate your new room! Also love the blog header - how did you learn to do that?!

what cute design ideas!!
my mom and I went to a local art museum and one artist had made a collage for the wall out of different size boxes (shoebox lids, square cardboard, etc) and covered them in different fabrics.

Wow. These photos say a lot about you miss Meg.
The "Ready to Operate" yet anal-organized desk. The abundance of all things white, and wooden. And the ECCENTRICITY of inner city/upward apartment living. How lucky you are to have such the place of which to return!

-Best luck with your Decor,

Kyle

I love love love the wallpaper on the last picture. I'd never think to do something like that in my own room...but it looks so nice. Good luck with the re-design

Those are gorgeous photos! I'd love a room that looked like any of those! Audrey Hepburn Complex has a lot of nice photos like that, though you probably already know about that blog. Also I'm not sure if you get Frankie magazine in America, but they include a lot of pretty posters and pictures that remind me of the first and last photo :)

i blog about interior design on a budget, so hop over any time. is there a particular style you are going for? i do e-design + would be more than happy to help if you want to email me.

my best inspiration comes from saving tearsheets + online pictures in 1 file. when i have a bunch, patterns start to emerge + i can get a sense of what i'm naturally craving for a space.

Dreaming of these now in my love and I's new apartment soon. We are looking to revamp when we move, such a good feeling.

P.S.
I have a great friend who lives in washington heights. She once took me to a "mexican" restuarant by her house (she is from texas as well and know that was not mexican food) this place was kind of creepy and seemed like a drug cover up or something. Don't go there if you know what I'm talking about. Just saying haha.

when i get this inkling...i know it's because the design troll is trying to take over my body. sometimes you just have to sit her down and say, "design troll...there's a time and place for you, but it' not now. leave me alone so i can go do work/go to the gym/ or fill in the blank."
