Oui! The Two of Us Sisters Do Appear Together in Photos

And, oui, the blinding patch of light (the pharmacy cabinet) desperately needs shelves and booze! 

Photographer Valérie Dray shot a few "Creative New Yorkers" including our good friends Joanna Goddard and Alex Williams -- and us -- for www.menstyle.fr.  So fun!

There's that black wall I show you all so much.  In other news that would make a landlord cry (besides painting gigantic walls black), I went to Home Depot to get some paint for my bathroom door on Wednesday and came home with a new door knob and a faucet.  Being overly confident from the knob installation, I attempted the faucet, but after unhooking the water supply, I discovered that the plastic bolts holding the old one on must be glued into place.  So, I tried to reconnect the water lines to the old faucet - and now no water will flow. So much for being handy.  I'll figure this out. Just don't tell my landlord.


  1. My landlord would have a compete heart attack if he was to come into my apartment and saw all that I have done as well. We just have to think of these things as improvements to make our lives better- to the space and they will be so LUCKY when we leave and can get more $! Now they are going to have to drag me out of my apartment screaming and kicking as this place has rent control baby!

  2. My old apartment was a 300 square foot studio. Combined with Porter's dorm room contents, it took six trips in a fully-packed 10 foot U-Haul to move out of that place. The new apartment is a 1300 square foot loft, which we've managed to fill to the brim. The mere thought of moving induces a stroke.

    I gave you a little shout out on my humble blog today. :o)

  4. I'm picturing what every room in my house might look like painted black-ish.

    It still feels a little taboo somehow.

    beautiful shot of the two of you. i think i just want to come hang in that apartment with a proper cocktail :)
    best of luck with the water!

  6. I totally thought that cabinet was a window! also, i bet all that light would be really pretty if filtered through some colorful liquors such as whiskey. :)
