Over the last few weeks, a few of my fellow blogging friends have reached out and asked me to hold down the fort (on their blogs) while they are tending to Summertime business outside of the blogging world. First, I heard from Erika at the Blu Label Bungalow. She asked me to pick the room in our new house that I am most excited about and share my inspiration for it. Pop by to see my laundry/kitchen pantry room ideas.Next, I heard from Crystal at Plush Palate. She is with us in New York City this week for a photo shoot. A photo shoot for what, you ask? On Tuesday, Crystal announced the launch of her new digital e-zine, Rue Mag. Busy, busy! Clearly her hands are full this week. I am always happy to help out – so when she asked me to write about my favorite NYC interior designer – I jumped at the opportunity to lend a hand! Pop by the Plush Palate to see who I wrote about.
