In the Globe Again!

Apartment 528 had the opportunity to participate in another great Boston Globe feature, this time in the Sunday Boston Globe Magazine - we're moving up in the world!

The article was on 100 Design Ideas Under $100. Many super talented designers and artists (and little old me!) contributed to the piece which was jam-packed with GREAT ideas for every room of the house. My favorite is from David Clancy, an artist who turned an old dresser into a display case for his Pez collection. He even used Pez dispensers as handles to the glass fronts. I like it already!

To get a little design inspiration for your house (or apartment!) and see Apartment 528's advice on nightstand alternatives, check out the Boston Globe's website. The ideas are sorted by the links under the pictures on the left of the page to browse through.

  1. How fun! Which of your cool projects did you contribute?

    P.S. I posted a link to you on my blog yesterday, along with a picture of your dining room. People loved the art that you created!

  2. Congrats on the article! I'll have to check out the Globe's site :)

  3. Yay, you posted the link! Did I miss it the first time? I've been so distracted lately, it wouldn't surprise me! Your substitutes for nightstands are awesome! People get so stuck in a rut with tables...

    And thank you for saying such nice things about my wedding plans! I love that you are planning a wedding that is so personal to you and your fiance. It really makes it so much more special!

  4. Thanks guys! I was super excited to participate in such a great piece.

    Cottage Cheese: The first time you saw the post it was an accident - I pushed "publish post" instead of "save as draft," that's why there wasn't a link or pic when you read it earlier. I was so confused when I saw your first comment because I didn't know the post was published! I guess I'm the distracted one :)

  5. Congratulations!That would be fun. Boston Globe Magazine deserves to look at.
