My guess is that most people that enjoy fashion also enjoy design, so hopefully today’s post is relevant to you.
We moved to a new apartment a couple weeks ago and are still putting the finishing touches on it and there’s two things I’d love your feedback on today: a chandelier and a media console.
Chandeliers are elegant, and in most cases, completely unexpected. Our kitchen table is made up of wood and a little iron, and I think a chandelier would provide a fantastic touch of feminine elegance. We don’t want to spend a gazillion dollars on lighting, so when I saw the two options below last night I was stoked about the price point. The first has a more traditional clear look, and the second still has the traditional look but is mostly white. Which of the two do you prefer (let me know in the comments).
The next item I’d love your take on is a media console – an item I generally dislike. Tossing the TV on the wall isn’t exactly an option due to how Manhattan buildings are constructed and I’m not interested in doing anything to the wall that will negatively impact our security deposit.
I was browsing around West Elm last night and stumbled on the Dumont Media Console. The mid-century modern feel would, like the chandelier, provide a nice contrast to other items in the room. Not to mention it has storage, which is something you can never have enough of in this city. Do you like it (let me know in the comments).
Thanks for your help on this little design project!
