Mercer Museum

Yesterday my wife and I took a nice road trip with some good friends to Doylestown Pennsylvania to check out the Mercer Museum. The museum consists of over 40,000 early American pieces, all displayed in these interesting little alcoves. The building was absolutely incredible. The town ended up being really charming as well.

BROMMÖ $59.99 @ Ikea

So the weather in NY is finally getting nice. After a long, brutal as hell winter, we are seeing signs of spring. As I mentioned I recently moved into a new spot, and for the first time in my NYC life, I have an outdoor space!! This shit is life changing. It's a 10' X 17' patio off of the kitchen. This past weekend we finally got to hang out there with some friends and after watching other neighbors grill all day and hang out on proper outdoor furniture I knew we had to step our outdoor game up. The first outdoor purchase are 2 of these Ikea BROMMÖ deck chairs. I love the look of them and they seem to be very sturdy. I gave it the crazy sturdiness test in Ikea on Sunday, I sat all super hard on it and rocked back and forth and abused the hell out of it and it seemed to be all good. Next purchase....the grill!

Maximilian Sinsteden’s dorm room

This little prick has a hell of an eye. Definitely the illest dorm room I have ever seen. Pretty interesting story, read about it here.

The Renovated Rental: Grant K. Gibson

I came across these photos a while back on the NYT website. Interior designer Grant Gibson worked out a deal with his landlord where he didn't have to pay the first tow months rent and in return Grant would renovate the space. I think his apartment turned out super nice. Check out the rest of the story and more of the pics here and be sure to check out his blog here.

Sport & Spool Antiques

On Saturday my wife and I spent the day at The Pier Show at Pier 94. There was so much incredible vintage it was crazy. The standout for me was Doug and Diane from Sport & Spool Antiques booth. Everything they had was in incredible condition. They were both super knowledgeable and really friendly too. These are some of photos that I took, I'm still kicking myself for not picking up that checker flag. If there is something specific you are looking for make sure and hit them here.

First Aid Box

available @ Kikkerland

In my new bathroom the storage is super limited. We have no medicine cabinet and a pedestal sink. I've always liked the first aid box that Anna over at Door Sixteen made for her amazing bathroom.
