I've been awful...

and I feel terrible about it. Things have just been so busy, but I've got a back-log of things I want to share and discuss, so to start tipping the scales in the right direction I thought I'd share this week's blog post from Thomas Jayne's Blog Decoration- Ancient & Modern

This week's post is about the Merchant's House Museum in the East Village. I visited this museum right before I moved to New York and fell in love with it...

I mean, Duncan Phyfe chairs covered in horse hair?

And a Chippendale mirror flanked by callalily gas sconces?

Come on.
