This week our “7 Things” are inspired by the NYC Architectural Digest Home Show. Nicole, our scout in New York, walked the show and found some fantastic modern/minimal designs.  Follow the show on Instagram @addesignshowat.

I also made sure I made it to Chelsea Harbour for London Design Week, although I was devastated to miss the amazing workshop hosted by Fromental in conjunction with Gainsborough Silks.  Did you go?
