TBH, this whole blogging consistently thing is proving much more difficult than planned. You would think that being the editorial director for one of the biggest design/lifestyle blogs out there would prepare me for trying to push out my own content, which it has in many ways. But after blogging/prepping/editing all day for Emily (which I LOVE so much – if you are reading this Emily), it is hard to creatively wrap your brain around more content, and then give yourself the stamina to pump it out. Gah. Creativity is so hard… do you feel bad for me yet?! I didn’t think so, but cheers to all those instagrammers/bloggers/lifestyle experts/influencers that are 12 years old and making 50k per post showing me how to blend my concealer in with my dark eye line. I get that that is not what the videos actually talk about but you get my point. Despite what people think, creating new and original content on a consistent basis that stays relevant, informational, entertaining and organic can be tough. So rather than talk about all that I am working on right now (which is A LOT and I will update you soon) let’s dive into a dreamy space created by this hunky specimen in honor of MCM.
We get it Charlie, you AND your spaces are REALLY hard to look at. In case you need further proof I present this to you.
Dimples, huge muscles, massive smile, good head of hair… ok, let’s pick ourselves up off the floor and get into his apartment (figuratively of course, although I am sure lot’s of us would LOVE to make a trip over his way to borrow a cup of “sugar”). OK – I am done.
His live/work/showroom/store in Greenwich, NY is pretty damn dreamy. It is staged with some of his own furniture designs, some on loan from consignors, and some that he is currently selling from his own store, which basically makes it possible to buy everything in here (for the right price of course). I doubt I could afford anything (including the fancy flowers) but it is still giving me major vibes of inspiration.
Not sure I fully get on board with the shipping crate as a side table, but the fact that EVERYTHING else in this space is a stunning piece somewhat makes it work and elevates the fact that it is a box made out of 2×4’s.
His way of weaving in so many different styles to a cohesive, eclectic mix is pretty amazing, but I guess that is why they call him a professional. But… not sure what those two painters buckets are doing on the right side of the frame under the piece of art. SOS – is this a new designer trend?
I get that this one and the below are the same vignette but I love how different they both look and how well it shows what styling can do.
I am pretty partial to the first one and OMG as I am typing this I just realized there is another miniature painters bucket in this setup. So it must be some artist that is making them and probably charging a fortune. Oh to be a modern artist.
Well done Mr. Ferrer, I am into it. xx
