NYC Inspiration

Hi there,
I’m back from my latest trip to NYC, and a really successful one it was.

As always the city provides endless inspiration. My latest obsession was the incredible Highline. An old elevated train track running up the west side of Manhattan has been transformed into the coolest park/public space that I have ever seen.

That building straddling it is the new Standard hotel.

The beginning of the path, starting at Gansevort Street in the Meatpacking district walking north.  They did an incredible job of reminding you what the place used to be…see the old rails on the left.

Love this.

How amazing would it be to spend an afternoon on one of these lounge chairs…

It never ceases to amaze me how creative people can be.

I love this space and will make a point to take a walk there on every visit back to the city.  Can’t wait to see it in the winter.

Stay tuned for lots of new products in the shop found on my trip.  So excited to show you all the cool stuff!
