I’ve been stomping around Manhattan this week, visiting my favorite home decor haunts and the NY NOW gift show in search of directional trends and a bit of inspiration. The city certainly delivered this time! Generally, the tone is still very casual and livable. I saw an explosion of fresh color palettes, pattern mixing, mid-century & “farm to table” influences and artisan sensibilities. Here’s the first batch of pics from the trip – more to follow next week!
