Walking through New York City fills the designer in me full of inspiration. Around every nook and cranny, there is a texture that grabs my imagination, for a design yet to be. Those of us, whose brains are wired to notice architectural details, see it easily. I hope that this post will inspire everyone to notice the little details in their world. Follow me on my journey through the streets of New York.
Strolling by a playground my attention is captured first by the sounds of children playing. I am instantly drawn to the wrought iron scroll work of the fence placed around the perimeter. The artistic pattern of the iron creates the perfect framework around the park. Wrought iron is a signature architectural detail from the early days of New York City. It’s no wonder many go to great lengths to restore and preserve it for their homes and businesses.
All that was necessary for this restaurant’s downstairs bathroom was fresh paint and pictures. The open ceiling with exposed pipes and lighting fixtures, create the industrial look that NYC has made a popular trend!
Here are layers and layers of architectural materials meshing together like a perfect piece of art. It makes me think about the years this building has seen and the different architectural styles that have passed through it.
Venturing down the tactile streets of New York City actually feels quaint to me. Even though the city is big, the textures create a neighborhood coziness that is simply undeniable.
