dinner with erin + creature comforts give-away + week roundup

my friend erin is a photographer. i love her aesthetic. we had dinner in her sunny room the other night. she’s a great cook, and prepares everything beautifully. she takes lots of food photos too and blogs on her blog culinography. i could not resist taking some photos of her room and the peacock mural she has in progress. i also thought it clever that she bought squares of decorative copper (the kind you’ll see in old fashioned restaurants) and hammered them into her wall as a headboard. she also hung a little painting i did of her about 5 years ago for my masters thesis project at columbia.


also, you must must check out Ez’s superb birthday giveaway to celebrate creature comfort’s 1st birthday (happy happy). she’s offering the best, most beautiful goodies. so check it out now and win them for yourself and to send to friends! send one to me please if you win!

    love it, sam! let’s do dinner again soon.

    so i found those old tin tiles on the sidewalk on the UWS. I think they were metal ceiling tiles that had been taken out of some old pre-war apt. you can actually buy these tiles refinished at the Brooklyn Flea, or you can buy them for about $45 each from the tinsmith in park slope on 4th ave and 7th street. They’re really fun, and i’ve even seen people put them in their kitchen behind the sink as a “splash board”.

    So cool. You’re genius. Hopefully a Maquette reader will try it themself! When we move again…someday, I’d love to do something cool like that! You should submit the idea to Apartment Therapy!
