From Place To Space: New York City

4 December 2011 0


After a few stops in good old Europe, I want to jump with you over the ‘big pond’ and take you to the navel of the modern world – to ever attractive, glamorous and fabulous New York City. 

I can imagine that most of you have experienced the magic of the ‘Big Apple’ and fell in love just as I did. The incredible architecture, the vibrant life, the credit card devouring shops, the incredible restaurants, and the never ending inspirations – a trip to NYC leaves a life-time mark to every visitor.

I enjoyed every bit of Manhattan and Brooklyn on a sunny and warm September and went back to Europe with a too heavy suitcase and lots of ideas and inspirations. 

When it comes to interior design, New York City is yet another benchmark for the industry. Amazing interiors ranging from small spaces to grand townhouses set the mark for a stylish and modern urban living. Countless renowned interior designers live and work in NYC and many, many books have been written and illustrated with stunning NYC interiors. Here is just a little taste of what the city that never sleeps has to offer. 

One little place I’d like to recommend: The super cute little café-bakery Kitchenette in Tribeca. That’s the place where I had a yummy breakfast and got that sweet Big Apple cookie. Enjoy!

    OMG, that top print. AWESOME. I love NYC so much, and we don’t get there nearly often enough. Your post reminds me that I can infuse my southern coastal cottage with some NYC, no prob!

    One of my have P2S to date! NYC stole my heart from the moment I saw the dramatic skyline from the train as it rolled towards the City one cold March day! I remember stepping out of the subway onto the street and just staring up for ages, amazed at how high all the buildings were. There wasn’t a poorly decorated crack house in sight! 😉

    p.s. loving the green wall with the gallery of art on it.
