Time Well Spent

So I know you’re all dying to find out what I ended up getting my friend as a Christmas/Housewarming gift. I went with the chrome clock I found at Yu Interiors! They loved it and it looks great in their dining room on dramatic red walls.

It was a bit over my budget, but I think well worth it. My husband and I actually spent Christmas at their place and had ourselves quite a nice time!

Yu Like?

I just returned from some last minute shopping and while I’m thawing out I thought I would share some images from a great furniture and accessories store in my hood. It’s called Yu Interiors and it’s stocked with a wonderful mix of vintage and modern goodies.

Here’s a look of some of what I found:

Great furniture pieces including these cute little side tables.

Various shelves and tables throughout the store with a mix of accessories from glass to ceramic to wood.

I LOVED these wall clocks! They’re reminiscent of the Nelson Wall Clock but not as pricey.

This little cracked ceramic piece would look so cute with a flower or some greenery sprouting out of the top.

And my favorite piece, this gorgeous vase covered in ceramic rose buds!

So if you need some last minute gifts and you’re in Brooklyn stop by Yu Interiors in Fort Greene. There’s something for everyone! (And everything is 20% off right now!!)

Luxury publisher opened its first U.S. boutique in the storied Plaza Hotel in New York.

I love this store, so many great books from vintage to new, Assouline has everything design related, a great stop to get your creativity moving…
