Nothing you can't do in New York!

So, I'm on week two in New York writing you from a suite at the Waldorf. Am I spoiled?! Last week, I attended the Food Network Food and Wine Festival and hosted a media event for Shaw called Designer Visions with three leading interior designer influencers. Another post on this event to come as I compile my notes. I learned Concord Grape is the new trendy flavor over Blood Orange. I learned black leggings and tall riding boots remain the fall staples. Scarves, scarves and more scares must invade your wardrobe. And recessionista colors prevail with hues of grey, muted white and rum pink. I notice a practical and utiliatrian asthetic where ever I go, especially in one of my favorite stores, ABC Carpet & Home.

Here are a few snapshots from ABC I wanted to share with you.

Alright, this is my dream china closet.
I loved the stacks of Juliska dinnerware in rum pink.
As part of the green movement, I'm seeing so many repurposed items like milk crates used as light fixtures. I love this industrial looking coffee table.


What a cool baby mobile made of recycled materials.
