Happy Monday! Is everyone surviving the frigid weather? It was definitely a shock to go from lying on the beach in Miami to trudging through the NY snow in 20 degree weather. Since it was snowing for most of the weekend, I stayed inside and did some work around our apartment, including re-painting my bathroom and bathroom ceiling. Nothing is more terrifying than painting a ceiling and praying paint doesn't drip down in to your eye. I also stopped by the MoMa to see a few new exhibits and checked out a new mezcal bar in Soho- Ghost Donkey. It has the coolest decor and the drinks were excellent, so I highly recommend it! Now, on to today's lustful topic- upholstered doors. I have a serious obsession with quirky, interesting doors and upholstery just takes a door to the next level.

I hope you have a great week!
