Nothing says minimalism better than monochrome and angles. And nothing says angles better than a structured trouser, an asymmetric top in front of a piece of geometric art.
Tucked away on a unassuming narrow West Village block lies a hidden gem. Golden plush sofas, thick layered drapes, dangling canopies and extra deep velvet chairs you can sink yourself into adorn the space. The floor to ceiling windows are all swung open letting in the gentle breeze of summer. You can't help but ask for a chilled glass of rose and their homemade pita bread accompanied by an assortment of hummus, baba ganoush, and tahini. I found a sweet spot at this Moroccan denizen which became my new go-to for Northern African cuisine and the inspiration for this post.
I thought I would take it back to the 60s and 70s since it’s been in the 80s and 90s out in NYC. I wanted to channel the style of that time as classic chic took center stage from the runway to the white house, from Bridgette Bardot to Jackie O. Since work has got me in NYC for the Summer I took time to close my eyes and envision myself flying across the Atlantic to the South of France right along the Mediterranean.
It’s officially June and summer is finally here!! While most NYer’s make the trek out east (aka the Hamptons) or to the Jersey shore for the weekend I usually like to make myself at home in the city. It’s one of the more quiet times of the year which makes scoring a reservation or pulling up a seat at the bar prime real estate.
