Well I returned finally from a 5-day trip to New York. Five days in the city for a girl like me who lives a much slower life results in relief to return, collapse on to the couch and read Charley Harper ABC’s to DC five times in a row (“book” she exclaims as she shoves it in to my lap).
I have to tell you and I embarrassed to admit this fatal error that I made before the trip but… I forgot my camera! Shameful! Oh the humanity. OK let’s move on, it’s too painful to talk about.
I borrowed my cousin Kristan’s camera whenever possible and she took a lot of pictures and we are still waiting for all of those to come together. She was packing a Panasonic Lumix camera with HD capability so all is not lost.
While in was in the city I tried to hit all of my favorite spots that I have been admiring from afar via the internet. One of the shops on my list was Ochre. This turned out to be more pleasing than I thought. The door to Ochre was really beautiful. When you’re close to it you can see the remnants of some of the paint that was stripped away, the raw quality of it is really striking.
Horn accessories everywhere, not just in Ochre but we’ll talk about that more soon enough.
I was sold on a chunky horn cuff bracelet.

Some antiques were mixed in. In the back portion of the store pictured above, there was a collection of antique shaving mirrors that were in great shape. They would look sharp sitting atop a bathroom vanity in a modern bath.
The textiles are perfectly worn and soft and the whole place exudes that modern rustic vibe I love so much. Texture could be found everywhere in wire storage, turkish towels, baskets, rugs, wood-oh the fun we had.
Then I walked out of the store and saw Sofia Coppola crossing a busy SoHo street.
Thanks for playing,
