House and Home Roundup: Spring is in the Air
Blah, blah, blah…just show me something good. I hate going to yoga classes where the teacher talks to you for 10 minutes about life and spirituality before getting to why I am really there: to move my body. I feel the same way about homes and design. Show me. Don’t talk about it. With that in mind, here we go.
Barbara Smith is an interesting character who I confess to liking in this lead article, “A Move Up (Martha Who?)”. I haven’t heard much about until recently. She is a large company already with books, television and design, but she loves her husband and the degree to which she brings him into her picture is strikingly different than the eponymous Martha. You can see it all at www.bsmith.com. Let me know what you think.
Rents are going up! Watch out New Yorkers! As a result of prices being so high for purchasing apartments (“Betting on Rent Over Mortgages”), people are opting to rent instead – saving their money for when the market is more tolerable. That means rental availability is getting scarce again. Time to SELL or stay where you are.
Also very cool lighting if you live in a warehouse. From Mathieu Lustrerie in France.
