Designer Showcase: The Apartment

2 Jan

It’s official, my absolute favorite design company in the whole wide world is The Apartment, founded by design couple Stefan Boublil and Gina Alvarez. Based in NYC The Apartment specializes in interior design, branding, and anything else their clients will pay for. I’m particularly impressed with their interior design portfolio. Their spaces are colorful, playful, functional, and mature. Check out the office space they designed for digital branding agency Electric Artists below. Ahhhh….how I wish I worked there.

Lonny Magazine

20 Dec

My motto is…the only thing better than getting something for cheap is getting something for free. So naturally I was super ecstatic when I ran across Lonny Magazine, which is FREE (electronically)! The magazine features luscious interiors with a little bit of a girly bent, kinda reminds me of Domino. While some items presented are on the pricey side, there are tons of low-priced items well worth buying. Check them out here.
