New York in Colour

by

I returned home yesterday from a whirlwind 4 1/2 days in New York. It certainly is the city that never sleeps and with limited time, I packed in as much as I could. This trips’ focus was getting some design inspiration for the house mixed with a couple of meetings for future Gallerie B projects (stay tuned!). Although the weather was generally sunny, it was cold. The fashion was totally geared towards winter with stores stocking a lot of black. This was a bit disappointing for colour-loving me but no doubt a good thing for my credit card! Therefore, I found myself enjoying colour in New York in different places.

The beautiful turquoise ceiling of Grand Central Station.
