Welcome to part 3 of my home tour! This installment serves as a mini visit of my office space, as well as a glimpse of my dining room/kitchen (here in NYC, they're often a 2-in-1 kind of deal), essentially the functional areas of any home, mine included. Now, seeing as I work from my humble abode (when I don't decide to take it to the nearest cafe), it's imperative that I be comfortable. As demonstrated here, I don't get very fancy, but I do like to keep it somewhat put together, so loose-fitting drapey garments are kind of what I live in.
The vintage wash Turkish rug is another score from HomeMint (RIP), which I jumped on the first week of their launch a couple of years ago. We'd been looking for the perfect rug to fit in the space but couldn't really commit to anything we were seeing. While its color scheme served as bait, the size turned out to be ideal and we fell for it, hook, line and sinker.
I like to keep a scented candle on my desk at all times, because, simply put, I am obsessed. I love the ones from Catbird, ABC Home (the Cashmere one from Linnea's Lights!) and Voluspa the best, they all have divine, well-priced selections. A little greenery on ye olde work station never hurt, either! (My husband has to take care of it, as I have what could be described as a black thumb -- I can't even keep a cactus alive, true story).
I wish I had more detailed shots of these two rooms, but unfortunately the lighting was tricky and the hours were sparse. Stay tuned next week as I continue my home tour, and don't forget to keep your requests coming! For most thorough interior deco tips, click here.
