Meet me in Manhattan!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

This is MAJOR! One of my favorite designers is moving into Manhattan. Now don’t get me wrong,he’s been living there for quite awhile. Circle back -way back to his Project Runway days,when he was living in a New York apartment that was as big as a postage stamp and he was confined to sewing his creations in a space smaller than the bathroom sink and cutting out fabric in his hallway. But that was then and this is now. In a few short years Christian Siriano has built a fashion brand that is beyond beautiful and feminine. (Fun fact-Christian dressed over 17 celebrities for the Oscar Red Carpet this year) and continues to be an enormous advocate for promoting fashion for women of all shapes and sizes. Between his beautiful designs and impeccable work ethic it’s no wonder that his brand has grown in the past decade  and he finds himself in need of some major space to “store”  his creations.

The Neo-Renaissance style town house that at one-time housed Fabergé’s headquarters as well as Cary Grant’s office is located at 5 West 54th Street. Christian refers to it as “his mini department store, and in a word it is FABULOUS.”

Recent pictures have surfaced prior to the grand opening on April 18, 2018 and it is one Glamour worthy abode filled with frilly frocks hanging from the ceiling and a staircase that picture perfect.

Let there be LIGHT

I’m not going to lie,I LOVE chandeliers-and yes that is plural. If it was up to me, I would have one  hanging in every room in the house. There’s something so lovely about the lighting that bounces of the crystals of a chandelier.

If  you happen to be feeling a bit of the Winter blues setting in(that is known to happen mid-February) and looking for a “project” might I suggest installing a chandelier in your kitchen. Now, don’t think I’ve gone off the deep end with this decorating tip. When you consider that the kitchen is the HUB of the home-you prep,cook,bake and socialize in this room more than any other in the house.  Think about the last time you had a party, din’t everyone seem to huddle in the kitchen before,during and after,….Soooo why not  dress the place up a bit?!  Chandeliers are available in all shapes,sizes and price points.  Just to get you inspired see the images below and I hope they help in shedding a little or big light on the subject. Enjoy!

Holiday Reflection(s)

If you’re a little late in the game when it comes to holiday decorating or if per chance you’re living in a  small space that won’t allow you to put up a full sized Xmas Tree there is another solution to add some major holiday decor to amp up your festive spirit. How about decorating that big beautiful over sized mirror. Nine times out of ten you probably have at least one large mirror in your living space and by simply adding some holiday decor to your mirror it will help “reflect” the spirit of the season. It’s cost effective, fast and easy to assemble and will bring an extra bit of holiday magic to your living space.
