The Weekender: Big News!

Olivia Palermo, New York City

If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (@savvyhome), you probably already know the big news: in a few short weeks, I’ll be moving to New York City!! I can’t believe I’m finally typing these words—it’s been a long time coming (my friends can attest). I’ve been hinting at the big news for a while now, and it was hard to keep it for myself for so long!

You might have noticed a lot of back and forth in the last couple of years, as I started making more friends down there and the weekend trips became more frequent. So when I got my position as Home Décor Editor at MyDomaine, and they asked me which office I would rather work from: New York or Los Angeles, the choice was clear! They were also happy with the choice since most of the editorial team is in LA, so I’ll get to cover most NYC-based design events, which I’m super excited about.

I’m obviously very sad to be leaving my city, my friends, and my family. In the same token, I’m relieved that I’m only a short 6-hour drive, or 50-minute flight away. It means I can easily come back for just for the weekend, and my friends and family can easily come visit too. It’s a refreshing change from being a 30-hour flight away, like when I lived in Australia. I’m nervous about some aspects of big city living: not having a car, the crazy rent prices… But most of all, I’m so excited about what’s to come—the adventures, the opportunities, the lifestyle. Bring it New York, I’m ready!
