About Me

New York, New York
I enjoy simple things: solitude, cheap sheet cake, and sunlight. I also believe that white is, in fact, a color. Bring me fresh flowers and we can be friends.

So other people have been here as well?

"Sometimes you’re 23 and standing in the kitchen of your house making breakfast and brewing coffee and listening to music that for some reason is really getting to your heart. You’re just standing there thinking about going to work and picking up your dry cleaning. And also more exciting things like books you’re reading and trips you plan on taking and relationships that are springing into existence. Or fading from your memory, which is far less exciting. And suddenly you just don’t feel at home in your skin or in your house and you just want home but “Mom’s” probably wouldn’t feel like home anymore either. There used to be the comfort of a number in your phone and ears that listened everyday and arms that were never for anyone else. But just to calm you down when you started feeling trapped in a five-minute period where nostalgia is too much and thoughts of this person you are feel foreign. When you realize that you’ll never be this young again but this is the first time you’ve ever been this old. When you can’t remember how you got from sixteen to here and all the same feel like sixteen is just as much of a stranger to you now. The song is over. The coffee’s done. You’re going to breathe in and out. You’re going to be fine in about five minutes."


....Except I'm 26 and that still happens.

Steel Windows

I have a huge, creepy crush on steel windows. They make me feel fuzzy inside - is that weird?
Whatever. To each his own.

They're so big and elaborate and clean and vintage at the same time, it's amazing. That last picture of the bathroom with steel windows for the shower - GENIUS. My heart is starting to race.

Room of the Day

This space looks like what my aunt's country house would look like if 1. she had a country house and 2. if she'd ever step foot in the country.  Its clean sleek and fresh with a pop of the unexpected - I love that rug.  The window ain't bad either, or the counter tops  or the glossy white fridge, OR that tiny butchers block. It's all pretty perfect, huh?
