Last week I got a little bored with my daily blog reading list. So I decided to venture out and choose some other blogs I had either been meaning to read for a while or just travel down some different rabbit holes.
For about 30 minutes I felt like I was trapped in the Michelle Adams vortex, which was perfectly ok with me. In fact even as I write this post, I had to refocus because I started to get sucked down another hole that started at M.A. Belle.Â Maybe you’reÂ wondering who Michelle Adams isÂ or maybe you’re thinking oh here we go with another blogger posting about Michelle. Either way I felt like TEOT would be remiss if we didn’t give Michelle a little of our time.
This is an image from the feature on Michelle, in her apartment in Harlem.Â Michelle says those are IKEA tab top curtains which she fashioned rings to.Â Before Domino folded, they began overhauling Michelle’s apartment for a possible shoot there but it obviously didn’t happen. Michelle continued the process but on a much smaller budget.
Let’s take a look at the whole spread of Michelle’s apartment from the July ’09 issue of Real Living.
Michelle is the owner of Rubie Green, an environmentally conscious fabric design company. Â Rubie Green recently introduced their own line of organic bedding.

Michelle also maintains her own blog, M.A. Belle. Â There are lots of juicy tidbits of info to be found there like the Tastemakers sale conducted by former Domino editors Dara Caponigro and Tom Delavan earlier this year.
And finally if all that isn’t enough inspiration, Michelle and her friend photographer Patrick Cline, will introduce the online decorating and lifestyle magazine Lonny this month. The magazine is named for both of their favorite cities, London and New York. Â One of the first features is Eddie Ross‘ new farmhouse, sounds like a winner. I’m definitely stoked.
