Room(s) With A View (or two)

TBT #6.  Interior Design:  Jenny Vorhoff at Studio Riga.

In the city where buildings are packed like sardines, some apartments have views that make up for everyone else’s dark brick facade hiding behind a drawn window shade.  At this penthouse in the Jean Nouvel building at 100 Eleventh Ave, whether I looked outside or in, my eyes were more than satisfied.

2012, 2013, 2014

Almost every night the words “how the hell did it get to be 11:45!?!” come out of my mouth.  My husband, usually brushing his teeth, flashes me a smirk not unlike the previous night & he’ll probably do so again the following night in response to the same (rhetorical!) question.  …So now I ask “How, oh how, did it get to be 2014?”  For the past 32 months* I’ve moved the calendar task ‘new blog post!’ to the following week.  Today I check that box & set it to repeat instead of moving it to next Thursday.  So in the nature of Social Media happenings & hoopla and given my long extended blogging absence, I’m going to attempt to play in the game of TBT!  Every Thursday, I’ll be posting oldies but goodies from the last few years.  Here goes.

*Full disclosure:  In that time I had a baby & we moved to a new home so there were a few months years where blogging, unfortunately, was not up high on my priority list.  Don’t know how I’m going to do it with a toddler running around, but it’s worth a shot.

Designer Fluff


What’s better than shooting Interiors at the home of an Interior Designer with her own line of pillows?  When the home is in Brooklyn, of course!  Those who know me know I’m quite the homebody.  I love being in my home, and when I do leave, I stay within a 10 (ok, sometimes 5) block radius.  Shooting for Interior Designer Audra Canfield, the creative mind behind Designer Fluff, was a treat (did I mention she pulled out a chilled bottle of rose during lunch?).  Not only was the shoot a blast, but I am now the owner of an amazing designer fluff chevron pillow.  And now, not only do I not want to leave the 5 block radius surrounding my home… I don’t want to get off my couch!
