|Here's my haul from Spain!|
I fell in love with the African stools featured at Minismodernas. I held off making the purchase for some time because I try to avoid international shipping fees. Alas, these stools were too fabulous to pass up. When I did make my purchase, I added more great items to make the shipping price worthwhile, of course. Everything was well packed and arrived in great condition. I really like that PayPal was available because it makes transactions so much easier. Thank you Minismodernas!
|Guy gets girlfriend and suddenly a little style and flair are |
infused into the starter-apartment.
You've seen a version of this scene before. I began working in the new pieces to raise the level of design. (Maybe our apartment owner just got a new girlfriend.) Prouve chairs are a mid-century modern staple. Perhaps they were purchased from a thrift store in bad condition and refurbished for this starter-apartment? A day spent at the flea market on 26th at the Avenue of the Americas (Manhattan, NY) plus great negotiating skills helped our guy get a deal on the African stool. You get the idea. So have you ever lent your creativity and design expertise to a college boyfriend/future husband (or anyone else) to help them step up their design game? Please, leave a comment and tell me all about it.
