Designer Brad Ford was hired by modernist clients to help outfit their new Upper West Side , Renaissance Revival apartment they had recently purchased. Brad is known for his modern aesthetic with a warm soul and was hired to help add just that kind of touch.
‘Balance, light, space and color factor into all of his designs, creating a timeless effect. Clean lines and simple but well-crafted furnishings, with an attention to texture and the highest quality materials are Brad Ford ID essentials. “We create environments that complement and suit the lifestyle and personality of the client. Whether the room is formal or casual, traditional or modern, accessibility and comfort are a must.”’

I came across the brand MONSE today and am blown away. Every piece is amazing on its own and when paired together makes for an epic stylish combo. I want to own this entire Pre-Fall 2018 collection. The shoes are to die for, the pajama inspired dress, and the off the shoulder asymmetric shirt/sweaters….come on…tell me you don’t feel the same?!?
It is officially starting to get cold. I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year. Love because this season has the best holidays bringing you close to loved ones, getting to pull-out the new coats that you bought on sale the Spring before, snuggles near the fire place, Fall’s foliage and drinking an abundance of hot cocoa. Hate because Fall is the tip-toe season leading us into the frigged coldness we call Winter.
Brace yourselves…..I could not limit myself with the amount of pictures I was going to post. They were all too stunning.
Went to New York to see a beloved friend of mine and he had a great idea to go out of the city to visit the DIA: Beacon. The establishment is BEAUTIFUL! I loved it so much I was day dreaming wishing it was my loft.
It is located on the banks of the Hudson River and is a former Nabisco box- printing factory. The ceiling has a million windows as well as through-out the museum bringing in a generous amount of light to showcase the contemporary pieces inside. I really liked the vertical gardens to the right of the entrance. I dream of having a vertical and symmetrical garden someday.
Richard Serra was most definitely one of my favorite artists at the museum. He is a minimalist sculptor known for working with and assembling steel on a large scale. The steel sculptures that you could walk through were amazing and had this beautiful rust color. Dan Flavin had cool and interesting light installations. Some of them, to me, resembled the Empire State building. Sol LeWitt was absolutely one of my favorites. He did these amazingly intricate drawings on the wall. He had me going cross-eyed I was staring at them so long! Seeing the Louise Bourgeois spider sculpture immediately brought me back to my childhood when I went to the Guggenheim with my mother and brother in Bilboa.
If you are ever in NY I highly recommend driving an hour and a half to visit this calming beauty.

Amazing factory windows…I would want them if I had a loft.
This is not at the Dia: Beacon but I wanted to show the large scale and that you can walk through them.
Beautiful rust color…
Bourgeois at the Guggenheim in Bilboa- I remember going there when I was a teen and being fascinated by this sculpture.
John Legend and hilarious Chrissy Teigen are selling their New York apartment. They want to start a family and feel that the space is too small. The condo was purchased for $2.5 million in 2012 and it is now listed at $4.3 million. Please keep in mind this is only a one bedroom!!!
I have to say though…the 1,969 sq ft. apartment is on point. It was renovated by Don Stewart and the architect in charge was Winka Dubbeldam.
Would you spend that kind of money to live in a one bedroom?
How cute are they!?! Ps. I seriously love that backsplash.
