Happy Sunday folks! Hope you all have a great day. I will be holed up in my bathroom all day (and all day tomorrow) while I try and glam up one of the ugliest spaces ever. I would like to know why I came up with the ridiculous idea of painting stripes. It has taken me 2 hours just trying to come up with a width and to pencil the lines and then tape them. I'm already exhausted. Haven't even started painting yet. I looked through my bathroom photos I've saved to see if anyone was retarded enough to try painting stripes and sure enough, this was the only photo I found and it's clearly wallpaper.
How's this for glam?
Sarah emailed me to let me know about a website she and some friends started, ucinteriors, where people from all over the world can share photos of their flats, young designers can present their work, members can post articles and ask questions and all sorts of fun stuff. It's only a week old and they plan to build up a social international network for everyone who is interested in how people live all over the world and who wants to get in contact with people from other countries. So go have a peek. Here are some photos from the site.
I also received an email from Tom at Wonk (in New York) to say they are opening their second shop in Williamsburg and are having a little party the 22nd to celebrate (6:30 pm 160 North 4th Street b/t Bedford and Driggs). Great store...here's a sample.
