So, here we go. I guess I'll show you the photographs and Laura's commentary and then add some of my own blogging brilliance and attempt to explain Laura's designerisms into sense.
Laura: "A little Green family time. Brooklyn style. My dad and his family grew up in Brooklyn and now, my cousin and his new wife live there :)"
|Meet Tova Bear, the apple of Laura's eye!|
Laura: "Thai in Brooklyn with my girl and the Green family for my Birthday.
How fun is this little treasure in the city? I love the simplicity. (See, Laura, I'm learning) The garage doors are awesome, and the bar is so clean looking. No clutter in this place! I think she was trying to make me jealous of the glass of wine she was about to order. It worked!
Pretty much the coolest wishing pond ever. I don't think you're ever too old to wish.
|Laura: "My favorite animal is a turtle-- slow and steady wins the race-- loved this adroably tacky guy. Priced at $4 bucks. My kind of birthday!"|
|Laura: "Texture inspiring me today. Antique marbles to-die-for in junk shop in Brooklyn."|
I can think of a million things you could do with antique marbles to incorporate them into the design of your home. You could fill up a jar with them and put them on a table. Use them at the bottom of a beautiful vase. The possibilities are endless.
Today's lesson: Never underestimate a junk store!
|Laura: "Vintage tapestry on chevron tuffed chairs-- oh, la la!"|
|Laura: "A little blood orange graffiti. My favorite color for my birthday--fab!"|
|Laura: "Picasoesque street art in Brooklyn."|
|Laura: "Cousin Andrew and Toto planking."|
|Laura: "Ah my gosh-- reminds me of my Grandma's bedspread in a not-so-grandma way. Still loving all things mustard and vanilla latte."|
|Laura: "Bad furniture--sad :("|
Such a cool little retreat! Love all the plants.
I absolutely love hanging chairs!!! I've always wanted one.
Hope you guys enjoyed some of Laura's Brooklyn-inspired style! Believe it or not, I'll be heading to NYC in a few weeks to bring in the New Year. I'll take lots of photos, too!
Until next time!
