Celestino - Bed-Stuy

Celestino – Bed-Stuy

From the guys behind the amazingly good (and cozy) Saraghina restaurant in Bed-Stuy comes a second in the up and coming hood that will focus more on seafood as opposed to authentic pizza. The lure for us is the simple yet tasteful use of nautical decor to create a seafaring theme. Photos and more details...

Lindsey Adelman Lighting

Lindsey Adelman Lighting

Ranging anywhere from $5,000 to $105,000 these Lindsey Adelman lighting fixtures are a force to be reckoned with. If 100k is a bit out of the budget or you would just rather spend it on a Mercedes G-Wagon (matte black of course)… then the DIY you make it section of her website is a viable...

Just another great Ian Schrager makeover. This time in the old Ambassador East Hotel in Chicago. As seen in gblog – “the décor has been changed into a mixture of austere lighting and dark interiors”. Chic!

Azzedine Alaia Apartments

Azzedine Alaia Apartments

Apartment in the middle of Paris +450 euro a night + designed by Azzedine Alaia = GENIUS From Another The mark of a good designer, or in fact any creative, is a strong, recognisable signature. Azzedine Alaïa has plenty: a monochrome palette, second-skin dresses, accentuated waists, laser-cut accessories. So it seems only right that the...
