A few of my favorite things…


Good morning everyone, today we’re off to an upstate photo shoot with a few of our favorite vendors here in NYC. We thought it only appropriate to tell you a bit more about one of our most recent friendships & new vendor obsessions, Patina Rentals, since they’ll be providing all of the furniture for the shoot. Their collection of rentals is curated by a design addicted, vintage junkie who brings pieces from different eras, styles, and far flung places together under one roof in an old garment factory in Brooklyn. Cue owner Corrin Aras; she’s smart, funny, and has an amazing eye for vintage treasures and she’s here today to tell you a bit more about her favorite things!

I’m absolutely loving deep moody blues on walls, rugs, ceilings.   This color (Black Blue from Farrow Ball) has so much depth.  I just painted a room this color and it feels so warm and inviting, and everything – especially metallics like brass – pops against it.  It feels like a beautiful cocoon where you just want to laze away a cold winter day.


I’ve become addicted to Aveda’s Chakra line.  I use it as a room spray at home and in the Studio. It instantly takes away stress so you can relax and think clearly.    #1 is perfect to make your house feel warm and spa like when you don’t want to head out.   We use #5  in the Studio when we are in creative brainstorming sessions.


I’m loving Brooklyn Grange’s Bloody Mary mix-  its just perfect!  They grow the ingredients at their rooftop farms in Brooklyn and Queens www.brooklyngrange – which is also a great event space.  I’ve been on a long search for the perfect Bloody Mary and I think I’ve finally found it.   Soo good!



The cold weather has been keeping us close to home,  we’ve been having lots of in nights by the fire- we recently got Cards Against Humanity which was funded on KickStarter – it is the most hilarious game we’ve ever played-  not for Virgin ears- it is seriously fun.
