Brooklyn! Hipster Heaven

It’s a known fact. Designers travel for Inspiration.

Taking in new sites and sounds certainly gets the creative juices flowing.

I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with Design Cartel Gal Pal, Decorator and Biz Owner, Victoria, of The Clearinghouse Exchange (Greenport,  when we set out to explore Brooklyn.

Summer is the perfect time to discover Brooklyn.  Tip:  Start in Williamsburg. This Indie enclave is all about Epicure, the Eclectic and the Experience.

Victoria and I started at what we first thought was an outdoor Flea Market only to happily discover was an outdoor Smorgasburg!  We ate our way through the cleverly named venue.  A personal delectable favorite was Bon Chovie whose tagline is Swim Fast. Fry Young.


Collaborating on redesign of space at Nassau Haven with the Design Cartel was beyond emotionally gratifying - it was spiritually fulfilling.

Special thanks to Kravet for donating their lucsious textiles.  They made it possible to transform a depressing, sterile space into a welcoming, warm Home.
