MANHATTAN NEST HAS MOVED! THIS POST CAN NOW BE VIEWED HERE!
I missed out on the Girard stuff at Urban. I wanted the numbers coverlet but it all sold out : (
Looks good. Love big windows in kitchens.
PS – I have matching pottery to the one on your counter (http://www.the-brick-house.com/tour/dining/dsc00531-copy) I’m obviously biting your style. Damn you and your good taste!
Oh man, I’m jealous of the big one on the right! I have a big tall skinny vase as well: https://manhattannest.wordpress.com/2010/09/15/made-in-sweden/
So… pottery swap?
oh I like your tall one. What are these crazy orange things? I wonder who made them.
No worries, the hemtape hems on my library curtains are all wide and stupid looking! But that should come as no surprise from someone like me, a fashion major turned graphic designer. The best day of college (other than graduation) was walking into a sewing class with the piece of paper that said I was changing majors when everyone else had stayed up all night working on a project. What can I say, I’m evil, and prefer to wrap up a sewing project with a good cry and a change of majors.
totally on board with the iron-on hem tape. and the wonky hem lines. actually i got wayyyyy too antsy to follow the mist/hold iron for 30 seconds/repeat process and switched to the REALLY awesomely lazy double-stick emergency hem tape. shit’s fine! (and for the record, ikea twin sheets, chopped in half make for perfect floor-length curtains.)
I love the way things look in that top picture! Tough to judge colors translated to photos translated to computers, but the wall color looks perfect with the curtain & lamp. An inspirational place to cook. Enjoy.
your kitchen looks awesome! i, like morgan up there, also missed out on the girard stuff, and seeing this tour (http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/ny/house-tours/gene-heidis-house-tour-125572) really broke my little heart.
LOVE the idea of the curtain, and I can totally relate because I have some old twin bedding stuff that I can re-use! Also congrats on the retro kitchen, it’s looking good, the blue color of the wall is awesome, because it’s not too overbearing, and the orange lamp is fab 🙂
Loving your work there. What about a gorgeous plant for the ‘green’? Any space to spare?
Question, does your orange light have a huge light bulb, or is it some other contraption that covers a regular sized light bulb?? I just got a yellow lamp sort of similar shape to yours and I’m looking for a light bulb. Thanks.
It’s actually a big white glass globe that unscrews to cover a normal-sized bulb. If yours doesn’t have it, you might be able to DIY it pretty easily by harvesting parts from a super-basic flush mount pendant and popping it under the shade?
Just found your blog through ECAB.
I got a set of the Alexander Girard sheets! They are the best sheets ever! We use them almost every week, but I’ve been trying to mix them up so we don’t wear out too quickly the best sheets I’ve ever owned.
I always keep lots of extra linens around for just this (and other) purpose(s). Love the look of your new curtain!
