We're having the apartment painted this week and I can't even tell you how much thought was put into these 4 colors, so I hope it works out! We're taking a risk and painting our hallway black. Hm. Hope that works out too! I'm going for a Ryan Korban thing. All black and white and faded Persian rugs and lots of art in gilded frames thrown in.

We bought this chair for $45 (!!!) at a New Jersey antique store and had it reupholstered in a black and white awning stripe. We didn't even have to change the wood frame, it's kind of a distressed ivory. Now the hunt for a sofa begins...

The Hot Chocolate Festival at City Bakery takes place in February every year. Not that I need a reason to go to City Bakery. They have a new flavor every day, but I stick to classic, no marshmallow. Some people think it is so sweet and so thick that they can only have one per year. I have already been twice this week. Is it bad to forgo dinner for hot chocolate?
