The month of August flew by right before our eyes. Between time off and photo shoots, I calculated I was in the office for a total of four days.
Another reason why I was out of the office was the New York International Gift Fair. My colleague and good friend Stacey Smithers and I jumped at the chance to attend the annual trade show. Even though we were only in New York for two days, we managed to make the most of it. We stayed at The NoMad Hotel located in the heart of the historic NoMad neighbourhood (North of Madison Square Park). (Check out Mark Challen's article on the NoMad hotel in our October 2012 issue.)
As style editors, we are constantly finding inspiration in all sorts of places. As soon as you walk through the doors of the hotel, your senses gear into overload, and our rooms were no exception. We instantly fell in love with the overall design of the rooms — you felt like you were walking into a cool Parisian apartment. From the artwork to the gorgeous carpet and paint colours, the small details were nothing short of brilliant. It was the perfect place to end our day after walking the gift show for hours and touring the city.
