How to live with Roommates ::: This is the Remix
Today is a great example of maximizing the sunshine in your days. It’s a rainy morning here in New York City after all!
Yesterday however, I took over my sidewalk with a colorful project. It was quite fun and reminded me of my childhood in Brooklyn where our front stoop was our great yard. It could become anything we imagined it be. Take advantage of any outdoor spaces you have access to; no matter how small it may be.
Back to this project……
I am working on a bedroom remix and I love creating one of a kind custom pieces for my “remixers”. I knew I wanted to give this “remixer” a piece of furniture that could serve her in many ways.
For many people who live in the city, sharing an apartment with roommates is ideal. It’s a great way to live in a great place without all of the responsibility. The key to living with roommates is to create a bedroom space that feels like a mini studio apartment. You want to be able to sleep, relax and entertain all in one space. That’s where this piece fits right in.
This vintage vanity will be a great place for her to primp and put on makeup. It will also serve her as a desk for writing up master plans or setting down her keys & mail. It can also become a bar for serving drinks in the midnight hour. How about serving takeout for breakfast in bed?!
Anyway you put it, this vanity will remix the way she lives!!!!

The Mexican holiday Dia De los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is full of traditions. Friends and family gather to remember and pray for those who have passed.
These traditons include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. True to Latino form it is a time of Celebration, complete with eating and partying.
I want to continue this tradition of taking a day to remember and to celebrate the energy and love which came before me. They are still alive in our world, in our stories and in our laughter.
BTW: The holiday falls on November 2nd, not October 31st like Halloween.
