Too bad the service/food at Bloom isn't up to par with their decor.

1) The red suitcase is from Diane von Furstenburg's Twig collection - amazing amazing present from my very loving boyfriend Alex.
2) The dining chairs were free - abandoned by an old roommate (but originally came from Ikea I think) - and Alex picked out some fabric to reupholster them. We got the fabric as a remnant - so it was under $10 for 2 yards and I don't know where you could find it now.
3) The headboard was a bit tricky to be honest. They are all set up in vases so they can be taken out and moved around the apt for parties and and what not. But all the cords can get a bit messy. Luckily I have some heavy duty extension cord thing that fits all the big plugs into one, which is then plugged into the wall.
**We inherited a super gorgeous 1930s bed frame recently so the flowers are now in large vases and the trunk is by the front door.

Hi guys, first of all thanks for the feedback so far. Let me answer a few of the questions...
1) Yes, the suitcases are always there, not staged. They hold fabric and other misc sewing things related to a small business I run on the side of my day job (since I don't have a studio for that).
2) Yes, the headboard does light up!! It looks especially rad at night.
3) I have a LOT of the nicest ones go on the bookshelf. I don't believe in hiding away your stuff in some false minimalist fashion - you should love everything you own, junk and all. Especially if they are gorgeous shoes!

I think when these pictures got loaded up to the site some of the colors go distorted:
1) The color in the kitchen is a pale, but bright shade of yellow
2) The sofas are a jungle green leather (not overstuffed blue vinyl) that matches the inlay of the coffee table. We actually get quite a lot of compliments on them since they are super comfy and look cool in person - I guess that doesn't really transfer on the site!!

Thanks for the feedback so far, and keep it coming!
