Queenie's Treasury

Hello from Chicago, my friends! I'm writing this in my hotel room on Michigan Avenue, which is bright, sunny and (true to form) a bit blustery this morning! I can't wait to fill you in on what I've been up to in the last 24 hours, but first - it's time for the Treasury!

Hollister Hovey and her sister Porter are pretty much the queens of Williamsburg. Their antique-preppy aesthetic makes me swoon, and their effortless personal style turns me green with envy. They snap some of the best vacation photos around, so I highly recommend you check out their trip to Prague and Berlin over on Hollister's blog. You won't be disappointed.

I discovered this next blog in the midst of my holiday decorations fever. Design Crush is a fabulous source for inspiration of all kinds, be it food-related or just plain prettiness. This paper wreath would look amazing on my front door this season.

Over at Elements of Style, Erin's found a tiny apartment that puts mine to shame. I want to move in here, right now. All I'd need to take with me are my books, my kitchen gadgets, and my clothes. Seriously amazing use of space, color and light.

I think we need two pictures of that apartment, don't you? Now go enjoy your weekend!

Oh I adore that kitchen! Can't wait to see the rest of her place!

Hi Meg. I'm planning my girl's weekend in NYC and was hoping you could give me your opinions on a Saturday night restaurant. We're trying to decide between stanton social and buddhakan. Any suggestion as to which would be better for a girl's night out?

@Jane: I know! The apartment has amazing bones, too - that window!

@CityMouse: Hmmmmm, good question. They're very different places, and I would say that Stanton Social is a bit quieter (not quiet, but quieter) than Buddhakan, but that Buddhakan is more glam. Both have good food, so you can't go wrong - basically, it's a decision between a more loungey experience (@ Stanton) and a crazy, buzzing restaurant (Buddhakan). Personally, I'd do Stanton, since the area around it is better for post-prandial drinking/carousing. :)

Thanks, I am hungry just thinking about it. Could be because its lunch time.
