Painting


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...

Wow! Love the look. Now you just got to hang up some of your works in simple black frames and viola it'll look gorgeous.
Lot's of luck!

I just came across your blog and love it! Your work is fantastic. I hope the paint turned better than you hoped for. Great striped fabrics are hard to find. Do you mind sharing your source??

Hi Style Chronicle! I got it at Rosen and Chadick- a mostly apparel fabric store here in NYC. The paint turned out AWESOME, and yes even better than I hoped for!
