The Weekender: Vanja Milicevic

Happy SuperBowl weekend! I’m spending a SuperBoring one: essentially catching up on work and figuring out my move, because by Thursday next week I will be in Mexico for a friends’ wedding! I cannot wait to see these two lovebirds tie the knot, and explore Tulum for the first time! Until then, I’ll be burning the midnight oil…

It’s quite unusual to have a bedroom with a view of your dining room and kitchen, but that’s exactly what Event Designer David Stark was looking for when he stumbled upon this Brooklyn Heights loft with husband, artist Migguel Anggelo. He wanted a space that felt unique, and it took the help of the design-build team at MADE to turn his vision into a reality.

Though small, the kitchen feels exactly like what you would want from a chef’s kitchen: plenty of storage, and a large communal kitchen island. The living room is expansive and bright. The hallway is dark and dramatic. Each space in the converted loft plays exactly the role it needs to create a dynamic home full of unexpected moments.

Continuing on the blush pink train… I’m looking at ways to balance the feminine delicate side of the color, with some darker tones, and more masculine materials. One of my favorite outfits right now in fact, is an ultra feminine blush pink lace collared sweater from Club Monaco, mixed with black leather pants, and black patent leather ankle boots (pictured here). I love the contrast between the two pieces.

Speaking of favorite outfits: do you guys ever get into uniform mode, where even though you have a billion things in your closet, you gravitate towards the same pieces day after day? And if so, how do you get out of that rut? Share your tips in the comments below.
