If there is anything I’m almost as passionate about as fashion, it’s definitely room decor. In my mind, I’m a big time interior designer who can design anything at the snap of a finger. Unfortunately, I’m confined to my bedroom and maybe the bathroom, but for now that’s good enough. The most exciting part of my room to design is hands down my desk area. It is imperative to have this space clean and modern; at least for me. It helps me think and clears my mind at the same time. While you’re working, it doesn’t hurt to make the space look good. Starting off with what I think is the most important; a mood board. If you’re working a job that requires constant creativity a board full of fun and inspiring pictures and ideas is the best thing to have, plus it looks really good over any desk. Next are plants! Who doesn’t love a little green? It adds color and earthy tones perfect for a workspace. Lastly, I love candles. They help me relax when I’m freaking out over work or just when I need a nice night in. They add so much to the decor aspect but also smell great! The bottom line here is, your office space is one of the most important parts of any home because it’s where work gets done! So putting a little love into your workspace will benefit you and your work a little more.

Maman, Soho

Akostar

Discovering new places to eat is probably one of my favorite pass times. One; because I love food and two; because I get to bring friends and take countless amounts of pictures. I usually find myself in Manhattan or Astoria because they are known to be the trendy place to be, especially for food. So the latest place I’ve been is Maman down in Soho. I quickly looked it up desperate for a place to sit, eat and unwind with my friend after a stressful week of school. We walk in and are greeted with a small and rustic space with a french twist. The food display mirrors the quant little European cafes and the small space in the back felt like spending time in a small cottage. The back was decked out in vintage pieces with cracked white chairs and worn down wooden tables. The food impressed as much as the decor. We both purchased the kale and chicken salads with grapefruit juice. It was fresh, tasty and packaged with a cute sticker, making the experience that much more entertaining. So if you’re looking for a good lunch break spot or just a place to catch up with a friend Maman is the place to go.

Room Decor

I’m a crazy person when it comes to room decor. It probably my favorite thing next to pointed toe shoes and Dairy Milk chocolate. I have this weird thing where I move any piece of furniture I can probably every month. Once i’m tired of looking at it, I quickly feng shui like a crazy person. My favorite vibe probably has to be all white. I’m a sucker for white, wood and black. I love the simplicity it holds and it looks pretty darn chic too.

Some of my favorite pieces have to be my little Buddha from Homegoods and my spherical contraption. (also from homegoods) I feel they add a homier, elegant feel amidst all the white. Enough of that let;s not forget the infamous Ikea pillow. Everyone has it but it’s honestly the perfect pillow. It goes with EVERYTHING and it’s comfy as heck.
