I love coffee. Sometimes people try to switch my coffee to decaf when I’m not looking. I can always tell the difference. I also like Pringles, but only the reduced fat kind because they crunch better when you bite into them and they don’t leave grease on your fingers. I’m…

When I was looking to buy my wedding invitations (back in April), I found a lot of designers on Etsy. After narrowing it down to a couple different designs/companies, I contacted both for their pricing list. One was pretty significantly more expensive–almost $2 per invitation more. Which I think all…

When talking to people about photography, I hear one phrase over and over again: Kids and dogs are the hardest subjects to photograph.
I, personally, don’t have this problem with my clients…kids and dogs are among my favorite things to photograph. Maybe it’s because I like to have any excuse…

Last week, Sean and I had our morning coffee on the balcony and watched as the Enterprise shuttle was pulled down the Hudson on a tug boat. It’s on its way to the Intrepid and I can’t wait to see it up close at the museum!

A Place To Eat

A Place To Eat

This is our new table. It’s perfect for our small space and just big enough for two people. However, it is not conducive to hosting dinners at our place. I’m still trying to figure out what to do for dinner parties…maybe get a big coffee table and sit on the floor…? Suggestions are always appreciated.

    That table is amazing retro 50’s diner! I must say, however, that the place mat and candle is completely out of place, period-wise. I’d recommend a blue or black cotton checkerboard pattern & some retro salt shakers or napkin holder to compliment the table’s original style.

    For your formal dining, you might consider simply a large folding table from a discount store like Walmart. It won’t be pretty sitting there au natural, but you can dress it up with some nice linens and no one will be the wiser (unless they look under the cloth, that is.) It has the added bonus of portability and the ease of quickly stowing-away, which is probably a premium feature in a NYC apartment. Plus, card tables are handy and can always double as a Christmas present wrapping station or make-shift fondue buffet in the future.

    Of all the people who read this site, I don’t think I expected you to be the person who commented on my home decor!! =0) I’ll keep that in mind and try to find some retro table decorations to match the style. Right now, there are some dead roses left over from Valentine’s day on there. Definitely doesn’t go with the retro theme…or any theme for that matter.

    Well, I *am* going back to school for interior design, so I’m trying to flex my muscles without looking incredibly gay. Thanks for taking my suggestions, though - I was trying to sound insightful without being pretentious.
