right now my apartment is very fall - colored which is cozy but starting to feel a little stuffy. the same goes for my wardrobe which tends to be very neutral themed (i'm ok with this) but could stand to be freshened up. i'm into stripes right now - for myself and for my space.
as i mentioned before i've recently worked at a boutique interiors firm in nyc that specialized in catering to the ultra high-end. an interesting material that i came across is "kinon". it's a hand-cast resin material that bonds to its mdf base layer and comes in a variety of patterns and colors - two are displayed above.
