{400 square feet of style}

Flipping through a few magazines last week over a morning coffee, and completely fell {along with everyone else} for Rita Konig's West Village apartment as featured in the current issue of Domino. There is so much warmth and style wrapped up in 400 beautiful sqare feet, and the family & friends polaroid display above the fireplace mantel is such a wonderfully fun and creative idea.

I love it too. I especially like the photo collage above her mantel. I am sort of obsessing about collages right now.

Not really feeling all the postcards/photos above the fireplace, but I love the rest! I always knew instinctively what I liked in interior design, but until I came across this blog, I had never been able to articulate it.

I looked at this and then went and looked at my copy sitting on the kitchen table & low & behold! There was a watercolor I gave Rita to the left of the pig's rear end!
