House Tour :: A Little La In Nyc…

I should really know better than to try and leave my posts until the last minute when I’m traveling in New York! There are far too many distractions here that keep me off my laptop! So today’s post is a quickie… but a goodie. Infusing two of my most favorite things together – a laid back west coast approach to design in a beautiful Manhattan apartment…

But I have to say, my favorite part might be this incredible pattern mix in the bedroom…
