A peek inside my home via Real Living

Photos: Patrick Cline for Lonny
For the past few months I've been dying to show you photos of my teeny East Harlem home, and tonight I couldn't be more thrilled to finally do so! When I met up with the kind and talented Real Living team on my recent trip to Australia, I told them all about my current decorating project: a low budget home makeover featuring eco-friendly paints, vintage finds and sustainable materials! They soon hired Patrick Cline to photograph the story, and finally three months later voila- here it is in print! I hope you like it :) and feel free to click here to see the full article ;)


A very special thank you to Real Living and Patrick Cline for making this happen, and Diane & Belinda for sending me the article (or rather a giant box of them...)!

I'm dying to know where you found the red chair. I have been looking everywhere for something similar, but to no avail. Thanks in advance! And congrats!

MABELLE said...

Thanks again everybody! I cannot tell you how much your support means to me :)

As for my recent question- the red chair is actually from Williams Sonoma Home. and it's discontinued but I was lucky enough to find it at the outlet for $60! The closest match I can find is by Jonathan Adler, but it's pretty expensive, so I recommend scouring flea markets/antique shows instead if you have the time! My friend just bought an amazing yellow version (looks EXACTLY like Jonathan Adler's!) for $65 at the Chelsea Flea Market!

Hope that helps!
xo MA.

I'd love to know/ get tips on how you painted your vinyl flooring and if the water-based paint has really held up to wear and tear. What a great apt!

Anna said...

I saw this awhile back but never commented. Congrats on the spread. Your place is gorgeous. I'm especially in love with the bedroom and the hanging swatches in your office. :) Keep up the great work. Can't wait to see more from you and Lonny! :)

Hi Amy

I love your Flatiron Building print in the white frame! Do you know where this can be purchased (online)?

I'm from Australia, and read the REal Living in which your home features and I fell in love with your home then and there...!

Thanks,
Maria

I wish I’d read it before doing my site – but am going back to make some changes. Thanks very much. I was truly reluctant to check out your posts the first time I saw the page layout of your blog.
