INSPIRATION: wall of clocks

In Decor, Food on August 25, 2009 at 5:59 pm

I’ve eaten at this charming East Village Italian spot, Orologio, a few times without ever really noticing its incredibly unique interior. On first glance, it seems to be a classy European-inspired front with delightful outdoor seating, and the floor-to-ceiling windows open to allow for a nice breeze. The owner and staff is surprisingly brilliant – friendly and welcoming.

After my most recent visit with a few girlfriends for a lovely New York City Sunday brunch affair, I was instantly inspired by Orologio‘s captivating decor. There were clocks, or ‘orologios’, everywhere. After dreaming up my eventual wall of hooks earlier this month, I found another use for a future wall of mine: antique clocks. Grandfather, cuckoo, tick-tock-tick.

when i lived in new york city, we had this long narrow entrance hall into our apartment. with no hall closet for coats, umbrellas, or grimy shoes from the mucky city streets, my roommates and i thought of ideas for our hallway that would solve the problem to our tiny space.

although none of them actually came to fruition, my favorite idea was that of a wall of hooks, in all shapes and sizes, all colors and materials. it has been brewing in my head ever since – and i’m coveting these for my next space.
