Just spent a very inspiring 10 days in NYC, the vintage-chic look is big business especially in many of the high street retail spaces & restaurants along with industrial elements & natural oak flooring making for many great commercial fit outs.
We were lucky to be blessed with gorgeous Spring weather along with a surprising turn of events including watching President Obama drive along the street we were staying in & yes there was a huge cavalcade & ALOT of police, sanitation trucks, camera men, with locals and tourists chatting and brimming with excitement, very NYC.
We looked at antiques, went to markets and had a good look behind the scenes at Urban Archaeology an amazing treasure trove of another collector of architectural salvage and the like, but doing it in downtown New York.
It was a rare break (sans enfant) and we considered a life living amongst the walls of the cast iron warehouses in Tribeca, we loved the architecture and the cobbled streets…
And of course the buzz of a VERY big city ~ until next time NYC xx
