In this new old house, the kitchen is giant. Giant. But it really hasn’t been update since the 60s, and it has approximately 60 inches of cabinet space for dishes. No one knows why. Also, related, I have a thing for coffee mugs and bowls that sorta resemble coffee mugs. I like them. I like [...]
You know on my 40 before I’m 40 list, #22 is “Throw a big party in NYC.” Well, I though I’d start small and practice a bit. So a few weeks ago, I helped throw a cocktail party at the Ace Hotel in NYC with Federated Media (photos here, many of which I stole for [...]
While I’m thinking about re-doing the bathroom in a super plain way, I’m looking for fun, different things to jazz things up. These soap rings from Nancy Wu Design are high on the list.

I can’t wait to see Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros live at ACL. In my next life, I hope to sing like Jade Castrinos. (Listen to them here.)
I think this is super cool. Definitely a prettier way to read your news from Twitter. Paper.li makes a personal newspaper just for you.
I’m madly in love with these 1923 subway signs. I’m coveting an original canvas, but while I save up, there are a ton of prints and photographs available. I think the current threat level has been elevated to “Need.”
