Exquisite Expanded Houston Home
We are close to being locked down in New York right now. Most museums are closed as well as all Broadway shows. It’s a very uncertain and slightly scary time in the city. I keep thinking about all that I’ve been through since moving here in August 2001 which includes 9/11, the blackout, the 2008 crash, Hurricane Sandy, and countless blizzards and nor’easters. I know we will weather this storm as well but how long it will take is the unknown variable.
I also keep thinking about how people being home is much easier now than it was in 2001. Almost everyone has a computer or laptop and wifi to stay connected and entertained. You definitely couldn’t read magazines online like you can now. I rarely even buy magazines at the newsstand any more. I read them all on Apple News or Zinio although I do try to purchase a copy of Town & Country every month. The April 2020 issue is especially lovely and this project by Redd Kaihoi on the unused third floor of a home in Houston is beyond chic. I love how they painted the long hallway to look like it was tented and used lots of color and pattern in the new guest spaces. Looks like a great place to socially isolate.
