For those of you who haven’t heard, Nate Burkus recently appeared on Oprah for his final appearance on her show (boo!). He’s heading to New York because he is the next person to have been touched by the “Oprah Factor” and will now get his own show (hooray!). Berkus became a main staple on Winfrey’s show after redecorating a small studio apartment into a lavish, multi-functional space.
I’m a huge fan of Nate Burkus, not only because he’s a little cutie but, because he has a gift to turn any room into a work of art. If you guys didn’t see the show, his tip for small areas is to place large items into the space so that you’re not reminded of its size.
While running yesterday, with the boyfriend, I was thinking that we needed to get away. Whether it be a full fledged vacation with the works or just a quick weekend getaway. I was just thinking that we needed a break from the norm, then it hit me like a runaway freight train! My friend Paloma Picasso, daughter of renowned painter Pablo Picasso, has a Moroccan home that is her retreat, we can go there!!! (I know, I know! You’re dying with envy right now.)
Okay!!….I have to admit it, I have not been to Apartment Therapy’s blog lately and I know you guys want to hurt me bad! (GASP!!) While I was over at one of my new favorite blogs, Cool Hunting, I stumbled onto something that I should have known about ages ago!!
Apartment Therapy has just released a book, named Apartment Therapy’s Big Book of Small, Cool Places, by Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, founder of blog. I checked out the preview on their blog and I’m so excited that I’m going to check to see if we can receive in the store, so keep your fingers crossed.
I’m very excited about this up and coming fashion designer from down under. Dion Lee, who comes to us from Sydney, Australia, is making waves in the fashion world and from the looks of it I can see why. I discovered him via Zimbio and StreetPeeper while doing my regular surfing of the net and I’m definitely loving his aesthetic!
