I went to SOHO yesterday and noticed these chalk heart drawings everywhere — I’m not sure why they were there, but they sure made me look and happy :)
I spent couple mornings here at the Burly Coffee in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn while Mili is in school… and found some cool types (above) and art (below).
As soon as I saw these drawings, I knew it was done by my friend Natalie. Her work has been so recognizable. She has a style. Love her work.
It’s been 7 weeks since we moved to our new loft and things are coming together slowly, but surely. I think our kitchen and dining area are now really close to complete, I’d like to add some more things still, but I thought I would start sharing things finally — starting with some paint job I did…
Over the Memorial day weekend, I painted these little things for our kitchen and dining area…
A wine rack from Ikea:
A little corner shelf I bought in Japan:
In yellow! Ever since I had the yellow wall in my old kitchen, I am obsessed with yellow, bright and cheery kitchen. Our new kitchen is white so I decided to do spots of bright colors.
One side painted…
Other side painted, too…
and here is the new wine rack in our dining area:
**The letter A is a local flea market find, I’m hoping to find letter E and letter T so someday, it’ll say “EAT” and probably “DRINK” too :) **
The drawings above the wine rack are by Julia Rothman. I love her work.
and the corner shelf in the kitchen counter area:
They are actually really cute in where they are, I am so happy that I painted them!
More pictures of the dining room and the kitchen will follow!
