Thank you all so much for your nice comments/personal stories the last few days. It makes me feel really good. So thank you.
Right now i’m in NYC checking in on the Lake House renovations and generally gallavanting around town. I’m staying at Gild Hall hotel downtown, and totally loving it. Probaby because it looks like this:
You know i love the sofa and chairs. And this is my room:
There are leather strappy things everywhere – no, not in that way, but in a way that reminds me of my new chairs at home that i can’t sit in enough:
Plus its downtown which makes it extremely easy to shop and meet clients (i usually stay in time square) And its in the financial district on Gold street, which has cobblestone streets in a herringbone pattern that makes me instantly think of this guy:
It’s pretty close to the South Street Seaport, which is where Mr. Feivel first landed.
Oh and last night we ate at Perla, a new restaurant in the West Village that was perfect. Its by the same guy that does Jeffrey’s grocery and Fedora (all extremely good food, in beautfiul old buildings and PERFECT ambience with delicious drinks). Plus my friend manages them and when i go i get treated like i’m special which never hurts.
AND this is their font which i’m obsessed with:
All in all a great trip. I’m headed out to a meeting, but i have some Lake House updates for you with some pretty compelling before and afters to post in a bit.
Meanwhile i’ll be singing ‘Somewhere out there’ to Orlando who is holding down the fort in L.A.
And shoot me some more restaurant recommendations, friends. I want to get my cozy New York restaurant grub on…..
