Jen’s Loft1/Anima

Chuck Choi has photographed Jen’s Loft1 by Anima.  This 2,000 sqf renovation of a former garment factory floor in New York’s Lower East Side serves as a casual 1-bedroom loft apartment for the owner, and a place to entertain and relax.  Inspired by the rustic materials in the previous manufacturing space , the aesthetics of the loft combines rough and simple materials with bold industrial objects and colors.  Linger in each room and soak up the details.  I’m crazy about Jen’s loft.

Time Out

Let’s have lunch!  We are headed to Caesar’s Palace Chinese restaurant,  Beijing Noodle No. 9.  Design Spirits created a magical, modern space for this yummy restaurant…with a beautiful goal in mind, creating a space, “gently covered in light though a silk-like skin.” This interior is certainly something to be marveled at…sparkling aquarium tanks, elegant layered patterns on a double-wall design, glossy finishes and just that extra amount of “glow” that makes the restaurant stand out from any other.  Now, what shall we order?

I’m Moving

I am completely taken with this residence.  Palm Beach Residence is the work of Australian interior design firm, Ara Design Studio. I love the comfortable, casual feel found here.  Wood, shades of blue and green, a special door, stone, bath with garden view, and a well-appointed chunky quartz crystal all lead me to the same conclusion…I want to move into this house…

When Oh When…

I’ve been waiting…patiently… for the Cloud Umbrella by Joon & Jung to make its way to market.  It’s fun, yes?   Below is the delightful description by Joon & Jung:

I thought a playful and fashionable item could give you more natural motivation for urban life. Besides. it is perfectly work as an instant umbrella in the city. Most of all, ‘Happiness’ was the most important concept for people in gloomy weather.

I hope that people will be happy with this Cloud Umbrella.

Yes, yes, I will be happy with this Cloud Umbrella.  But, when oh when will I be able to purchase one?  The status:  prototype producing sooner or later.  Patience…patience…

Trey Jordan Architecture

Happy Sunday.  What are you up to today?  I have been enjoying visiting a few of my favorite blogs.  Usually, along the way a bit of magic happens.  I began at La Boheme, was led to Meta Musings, and once there was introduced to Santa Fe based Trey Jordan Architecture.   The rest is history…magic.
