Sneak Peek: Amy's Brooklyn Pad, Part 2

Hello there!
Remember this pretty lady and this handsome guy?
If you don't take a look {here}.

Well, they are back!
I had so many pictures from Amy's Brooklyn pad that I didn't want to cram all of them into my last post.

So, here are a few more....

Amy's guest bathroom is simple and white, but I LOVE how she adds these intense splashes of color to take the space from normal to AMAZING.

Super cute idea, right? Guest bath towels in this lovely basket.

Here's Amy's closet.
MAJOR! MAJOR! For you non-city dwellers this closet is beyond a rarity in most NYC apartments.

Weekend in Review

Hello there! I hope you have a lovely weekend.
On Friday, I had a long list of things that I wanted to work on for the house this weekend including picking the granite for the kitchen island and counter tops; picking a back splash for the kitchen, picking a vanity for the guest bathroom and figuring out what I was doing for an accent wall for the same bathroom.  I also wanted to pick out a faucet for the kitchen, but that item didn't make it on to the agenda AT ALL and though I was thinking of the granite, we didn't get around to doing that either.  The problem with a lot of design stores for kitchen and bathrooms is that they have limited hours on Saturdays and are usually closed on Sundays.  So you have to jam pack a ton of stuff from 9 am to 3 pm on a Saturday.

I wanted to pick the granite counter top and then work from there, but sometimes, what you plan isn't what works out. 
So we ended up looking at the back splash and tiles for the accent wall.
We also got the v…
