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.
