Obsessed with these beautiful, simple, understated smudges-of-gold earrings from WWAKE.
Isaac and I are moving to a new apartment soon. We wanted to just stay where we were till we moved to our house, but eh: what can I say: things like building a house take a long time and doing laundry at the laundromat sucks. So!
We’ve lived together for 12 years now and we want to make some actual changes in this next apartments, because things like our books, art and furniture don’t change move to move, and this is a good chance to mix things up as opposed to reinstalling our life in a bigger apartment with a laundry room.
No. More. Malm.
We bought it because it was simply designed and affordable, but I think I have scars on my shin from our Malm bed. And it’s huge! So, we are ditching the bed, and having a low mattress…but not in the way I used to (simplicity in youth looks a little slovenly, now that I think about it). We’ll go for something a little more like this:
Change 2. House Plants everywhere (and alive). I‘ll put in the effort to water, I swear!
I’m emotionally ready to have a ton of plants indoors: trees, philodendron, and some little ones for texture.
Change 3. Get low.
Our current apartment is so small that I always looked up: our dressers and bookshelves are tall to preserve precious square feet.
However, this next apartment is bigger, and has windows on three sides (four if you count the surprising and somewhat creepy ‘building hole’ window), and want to keep it looking wide open. We’ll be making low bookshelves and dressers throughout the house.

Our good friend Julia Sherman’s blog, Salad for President, is beautifully shot, delightfully curated and written in her voice, so it’s charming, funny, totally quick and friendly, and in the know on all things salad and the creative people she’s tapped to make them.
One that looks incredible that’s on her site right now is this lotus root salad, from the bartender at the restaurant I miss from when I lived down the street in Bed-Stuy.
In the NYTimes recently.
It’s for your tech, but it’s a casual-but-still-a-bit-luxe (amazing leather) update to the rectangular clutch I’ve been carrying for years.
I met Jody Rogac last week on the set of the movie I was working on.
She was shooting behind the scenes and taking portraits. Her work is calm but intense, striking yet casual, honest and beautiful, quiet but memorable. I really love it.
Here are some of my favorite shots of hers, and so many more are on her website.
