As the weather becomes more gloomy my desire to sit inside, curl up under a blanket and watch Netflix all day grows increasingly strong. Honestly, I prefer to do these things even when the weather outside IS nice but that’s beside the point. The point is, when the weather is cold there is no greater meal than a warm bowl of chili. Whether you like a traditional beef chili or you’re more into a vegetarian chili, we’ve got it all for you

Refurbishing a Vintage Clock with Claire Staszak

Clock_on_wall

Clocks are pretty underrated in the realm of home décor. You never hear anyone mention how much they need a clock. But next time you see a working vintage clock – think twice, that baby may have some serious potential on your wall! Mid-century modern décor is quite on trend at the moment, if you haven’t noticed. This is excellent news, because clocks from that era are in abundance at vintage shops, grandparent’s basements and sites like Krrb. If you see a clock with lines you love, snatch it up and then proceed to refurbish it in these six easy steps

Living in a big city can be tough. The one place that I can always go to escape is my very small but cozy apartment. That’s why every year, around this time, I get excited about decorating. At first, it proved to be difficult because some of the more traditional holiday decorations take up more space than my bedroom. After doing some research and (getting a little creative!) I’ve come back with a few ideas on how to use every inch of a small space to its full holiday potential

When you step into Maresa Ponitch’s Dusty Rose Vintage shop in Greenpoint, Brooklyn you’ll feel like a kid stepping into an amazingly stocked candy store.

The majority of the store space is filled with bins upon bins that are stuffed to capacity with clothing and accessories. If you are a more ambitious shopper you are welcomed to dive right on in, climb a ladder and submerge yourself into pounds of denim. We were also lucky enough to talk to Maresa about Dusty Rose and all things vintage

In its own way, Thanksgiving dinner has becomes a tradition among my group of friends. Our Friends-giving, as we call it, is really a mix and match of people in our Brooklyn neighborhood—we give thanks, we eat, we drink wine—it’s really quite fun. Over the years, we have taken turns squeezing plus ones around tiny apartment dinner tables. But this beautiful dining table I stumbled upon on My Blue Canoe is where I want to be sitting this year. Find out how to get the look for yourself

There’s a certain amount of risk that comes with diving into a new venture, no matter how excited you are about it. Peter and Scarlett, the duo behind Adverts Vintage, know this firsthand. Just over two years ago, they left the security of steady employment to dive into the vintage furniture industry. The risk was not without reward, and today they are the proud owners of a beautiful brick and mortar shop in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn. Upon entering the narrow space, you’re immediately surrounded by warm wood, high-polish finishes, and the clean lines of mid-century modern design. Welcoming and warm, Peter and Scarlett were happy to talk shop and divulge what they’ve learned along the way
