The Bachelor...

The July 2011 issue of Architectural Digest is yet another example of why AD is so friggin' hot again!  It is a virtual variety of projects from the illustrious Elizabeth Taylor residence (now on the market for $8.6 million dollars) and other traditional architectural styles in Hombly Hills, California and the Dominican Republic, to modern residences.  It is worthy cover-to-cover.

But what really caught my eye is this...

So the story goes, 'the bachelor' moved from Seoul, Korea to California to New York.  Landing in this 4,000 square foot loft.  Architecture and design were extremely well executed by David Mann and Brett McCullen of MR Architecture + Decor.

Large windows face the Hudson River, on all three sides of the loft.  It has been furnished with cowhide covered Arne Jacobsen Egg Chairs, a vintage Bodil Kjaer desk of rosewood and a custom made goat hair Ball chair from Soroya Ltd.  Okay, so the place is gorgeous!  Nuff said!

 Now you know, this is where "the magic happens". 

One of the wonderful finds in Tribeca's many lofts are the rustic original details and artifacts left behind, from their former glory.  I love this sliding door.

I am sure you agree...he won't be living here by himself very long...

Eyebobs... Decorate your pupils with style...

I have a new shopping site to share with you all!  With eyeglasses suddenly being the hottest style essential (even for those who would'nt be caught wearing them) years ago... I have found an essential sight (pun) with prices so inexpensive (starting at $64.00 USD) - well you can have a pair for every day of the week.

Eyebobs, is the place to go!  They offer styles for men and women, they are non-prescription but offer 'magnification' reading lenses.   They also offer bifocal lenses.  Many frames have  dual materials on the inside and outside of the frames.  Eyebobs is the express lane to looking great and being able to read all the text on your new ipad2.  They even have bamboo frames for the eco-friendly design officinado.

Check them out and let me know what you think - okay!
