EYE CANDY OF THE DAY: A BREATH OF FRESH AIR

This terrace is a breath of fresh air, both literally and figuratively speaking. The creatively designed urban oasis belongs to a federal style townhouse in West Chelsea, a neighborhood known as the heart of New York City’s Contemporary art scene and home to iconic institutions like the Gagosian Gallery and the Highline Park (which just so happens to be located only minutes away from this apartment).  We love how this beautiful co-op home epitomizes the visions of tree-lined streets that Chelsea is famously known for, and the dedication to design is not limited to the impeccably landscaped private terrace. Inside features a spacious master bedroom with precisely designed custom closets, and a stunning kitchen designed by world-famous Italian design firm, Molteni & C Dada of SoHo who’s use of light elm wood cabinetry creates a warm, and inviting atmosphere.   

Click here to see more eye candy on this home, and to discover the best neighborhood amenities that Chelsea has to offer.

CT MUST DO: Art to the Avenue Gallery

Contributed by Diddle McAllister, Licensed Realtor from our Greenwich Office

For the seventeenth year, Greenwich, CT will play host to the area’s finest “strolling art gallery.”  The Greenwich Arts Council presents the Art to the Avenue gallery, which turns Greenwich Avenue into a massive art-infused street festival.  Musicians and street performers will be on-hand as local art retailers and merchants line the street, showcasing their fabulous art collections.  The Gallery will feature the work of over 120 artists, and the art selected by the retailers remains in place through Memorial Day.

All the art on display is for sale, and a 30% tax deduction for the purchaser benefits the Greenwich Arts Council.  A complete Map/Guide is published listing all participants, so that individual shops, artists and locations are easy to locate.  For more information on the event, click here.

If you are lucky enough to live in the beautiful Stamford, Connecticut make sure to take a stroll through Stamford’s Town Center this week, as it’s the last week to see the “Downtown Abstractions- Art in Public Places.” You won’t believe your eyes with this year’s lineup.

The year’s gallery exhibits 43 sculptures that are on loan to the city by 18 renowned artists from across the country. You can view all of the sculptures before you arrive online to pick out which ones you want to look at and learn more about the artist who created them.

Also make sure to print out a map so you know exactly where you are going. After you are done checking out the beautiful sculptures why not check out one of Stamford’s tastiest restaurants or shop the day away with a friend? After all… you deserve it!
