If any of you follow the Studio Four Instagram account you may have seen that I am vacationing with family down in South Carolina this week. So my apologies for the heavy photo content of my two year old son on the beach and the lack of textile photos! I promise I will be back in the showroom on Monday and I’ve heard some really great things have arrived in my absence, so stay tuned…
But for now I am getting a chance to sit back and enjoy the little things that can really recharge you… like relaxing on the beach and staring at the ocean or actually taking time to sip my coffee while my in-laws entertain my crazy son, instead of gulping it down in the morning rush.
While pleasantly sipping my delicious coffee this morning, I also finally had the time to catch up on some of my favorite design magazines. One of them is April’s Australian Vogue Living (YES- I really am that far behind!!). I was very excited to see an article on what is now being called NYC’s NoMad area. The NoMad neighborhood extends north from 23rd Street to 30th Street, and between Avenue of the Americas and Lexington Avenue. About 10 years ago this area was a little lacking in city hot spots and sites, but today it is one of my favorite NYC neighborhoods to roam around. Madison Square Park is unbeatable in summertime and there is all sorts of delicious food to be found (Eataly, The John Dory Oyster Bar, Number 7 Sub, Eleven Madison Park, and the list goes on…).
But the best part of this article was Flo! Yes, our very own Florence the Frenchie had a 1/4 page feature in Australian Vogue Living and we had no idea. Flo is a daily visitor to the Madison Square Park dog run, and apparently the Australian Vogue photographer thought she was model worthy. So if you happen to be as behind in life as I am and reading the April Issue of Australian Vogue Living, be sure to check out our dear Florence on page 37!!
Here are some quick pics from the article…

And here’s a little glimpse of vacation in SC… I plan to come back a calm and relaxed lady!
South Carolina beaches- some of my favorite!
