my apartment

this summer i tore my knee up- so getting the apartment together was a project that got moved to the back burner. now that i am much more mobile i’ve been working on turning this place into a home. my new favorite change is the painting above the sofa. my dad painted it in the 80′s –its the corner in astoria were he played handball as a kid. my dad also gave me some of my nana’s framed needlepoint projects. i love coming home and seeing all the cool things my family has made.

the toughest project has been decorating the mantel. i’ve never had a working fireplace before so i wanted to decorate it with my most beloved treasures. the avengers won out. i bought some jonathan adler tchotchke, some figurines and spray paint. the figures got a good coat of white paint and now stylishly protect my fireplace.
