A visit to Uncle Tony's Loft

We met Uncle Tony for the first time at his loft in the village of NYC. He and his wife fell into the category of "cool couple" the second we met them and stepped into their place.

Uncle Tony, an architect, designed and furnished the place with furniture he built - yup, everything from the counters, the book shelves, the bar, to the partition walls and the desks.  His wife on the other hand, a painter, adorned their loft with her own floral paintings.   There was a surprise behind every corner. We thought this was a must share!

The coolest bit of all... their giant removable swing.  
I wish I had a swing in my apt!

I've always had a keen interest in interior design, following blogs and pinning ideas that I love. But when it comes to designing my own apt or room, it never comes out the way I want it to. Starring at a plethora of colorful linens, jars, pillows and beds at Ikea makes me forget all the ideas that I wanted to execute. 
Just wanted to share some blogs and ideas that I have for my next apt.

I just realized the hint of yellow in almost each picture! I swear that wasn't on purpose, I just love yellow. :)
