stylish bathrooms

A little bathroom inspiration... the last image would be beautiful in a country house.

book storage

I would really love to have a big bookcase in our apartment. We don't have proper space though. I do have two narrow CB2 bookcases in our bedroom for the boy's books but nothing on a large scale. I love the idea of having a book storage beside the dining area. Maybe one day in a country house upstate...

a jewerly studio

One of the main reasons for wanting a little country house is to also have a tiny studio in the backyard so I can do more metalsmith work. I've had a fine jewelry line in my head and sketched for almost 10 years now. It's time! It's almost impossible to do metalsmith work in a small apartment for safety/ventilation reasons and studio rentals in New York City are astronomical. I'm able to do a little sawing, hammering and drilling but not much else. I found some really beautiful studios online and a few modern prefab sheds that would be perfect. The last one is a DIY. It would be so cool to build my own.

un petit morceau de moi

We're on the hunt for a country house somewhere upstate New York - a place we can get away to but not too far from the city. Very daunting for me since I've lived in a small apartment my entire adult life. Craig was born on the upper east side and has lived in our apartment since he was 3 years old! I love these small, cozy homes with dark exteriors. I would love to have a flat roof but definitely not happening in the northeast.

happy thanksgiving

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone! My parents are in town and we're having friends and family over for dinner. I found these beautiful images online. I would love to have an outdoor upstate New York Thanksgiving one day.
