Want to go shopping with me today? I've been saving this one for you. :-) After hearing 'blog-whispers' about an awesome Japanese bookstore in Manhattan, I made a point of popping in after a meeting. And I was not disappointed.
Located opposite New York's fabled Bryant Park, Kinokuniya is a product-packed gem boasting three floors of hard-to-find goodies. In addition to tons of Japanese magazines and books of all genres, you can expect sweet finds like stylish stationery; kitschy toys; pretty kitchen linens; and exquisite wrapping paper. For intrepid crafters, instructional books on origami jewelry; soap-making and sassy knits abound.
Confession: I actually missed the entire upper floor. Sensory overload! Don't worry, I'll keep you posted on my next trip. Saw anything you liked? I have my eyes on the lovely koi stationery but that's another story. :-) In the meantime have a great weekend!
I am a freelance fashion writer and stylist who is a stay-at-home mom by day and serial decorator by night.
Growing up, one of my mom's favorite mantras was "pretty but not practical". Nowadays, my aim is to meld the two.
This blog is a style-file of home decor inspiration that is both stylish and accessible. It's also a way of sharing my constantly evolving ideas for living large in a small space.
Thanks for visiting - hope you enjoy!
