From The Source

November 13, 2013 § Leave a comment

I first went to From The Source, in Brooklyn NY, when Jordy (you should all know that’s my ever on-point younger sister) told me there was a shop near her Brooklyn apartment I would die for. She didn’t specify that I would actually be going to an enormous warehouse filled with the most most amazing and beautiful selection of reclaimed and sustainable woods. So when I walked in, it’s safe to say I was completely bowled over! I’ve recommended From The Source for nearly every project I’ve worked on (including my grad school thesis) since that first visit. Here are just a few of my favorite examples of what they offer.


Mango Wood. You can buy live edge slabs or request custom orders from a table top to the whole table.


Teak Wood.


Meh Wood. Joined into a beautiful surface.

And… not to blow your mind with even more, but to convey the extent of what they have to offer (we ARE talking about a full warehouse here…), here is some of the furniture that they now offer!


Cache Media Table, in Teak


Perch Bar Stool – I actually have this on order. And LOVE it.


Kai Desk, in Sonokeling Wood.

Mike D in Brooklyn – New York Times

July 18, 2013 § 1 Comment

The New York Times did a piece in their Style section on Mike D’s townhouse in Brooklyn, NY. And, all of us who screamed “No Sleep til Brooklyn” in the middle of the night at some point in our lives (regardless of how close or far we were from Brooklyn), feel totally authenticated in his sweet BK style! Here are my favorite snapshots from the Times article!

Bathroom Vanity – probably from a vintage piece. You can do anything with a sweet find – even put a sink in it!

Picture 6

Living room. I love this shot. I recognized the Missoni pouf (from their collection with Target) right away. I saw it in my old Boss’s house and was blown away when she told me Target! On the high-low, the chair across the way is a work by Patricia Urquiola.

TV room. A little heavy on the color palette, but super fun idea – I love a good projector show!

Reclaimed wood cladding in the kitchen – a Brooklyn Best Practice for commercial and residential!

Art, art, and more art. Want your friends to believe you when you claim you’re authentically anything? Buy the art to back yourself up. Whether it’s ebay, etsy, or a gallery, you’ll find something that reflects how you identify yourself and the world around you. Showcase it – once you have a collection together, it will speak to you like no other collection can!

Master bath. I recently read an article on Collin Burry in California Home Design- he said “A good bathroom is like good shoes. You need them to complete an outfit.”

Bedroom. It’s always nice to know… Who would have guessed Mike D would sleep in a traditional design 4 poster bed?? Go figure – we all need a little history in our lives!

I feel so badly about not having posted much in the past three months that I decided to share a little nugget of awesome with you all. Your favorite Cuban girl wore nothing exciting to go dancing at a fishing hut with my lovely New Englander husband!

laugh yourselves silly!
