diy project: bathroom vanity curtain.

May 31st, 2010 · 1 Comment

If I could, I’d gladly replace our current monstrosity with any one of these bathroom vanities, unfortunately my modifications extend […]

ICFF 2010 favorite: Brinca Dada.

May 19th, 2010 · Comments Off on ICFF 2010 favorite: Brinca Dada.

When we spotted the Brinca Dada booth from across the convention hall aisle, and we immediately abandoned our planned trajectory to check out the miniature house perched atop a table. Since there were so many people gathered around, Brinca Dada founder Douglas Rollins (super nice guy) gave us a tour! The Emerson dollhouse is the first in the Brinca […]

We started our day with a quick brunch at 202 — I had the hammy, eggy, cheesy sandwich, an excellent choice after the Wallpaper* Brazil launch — and a quick stop at the Chelsea Market where my friend Matt purchased the tiniest and cutest cup of coffee we’d ever […]

Later it was downtown to the […]
