New York Times: Amy Azzarito, Design*Sponge maven

Posted on: April 5, 2013

Fabulous article on Design Sponge’s managing editor, Amy Azzarito. (Design*Sponge has LONG been on the CellularWindowShades blogroll.) Who knew there was a “girl” living a life I’d envy — one filled with books, and influential people who appreciated her worth. Wonderful to read that her tenure at Apartment Therapy  (another CWS blogroll fav) came via a writing contest: the prize – producing five posts a week (at $11 each).

I may disagree with sorting books via color (by general topic, surely…), but the Times article — written by Penelope Green –, will introduce you to Amy Azzarito the woman, telling fans about various aspects of her past and present.  Azzarito’s home sounds wonderful (you’ll even learn its current rent!), and you’ll enjoy the accompanying photos.

Can’t end this post without mention of Amy Azzarito’s new bookPast and Present (from Steward, Tabori & Chang). Wonder what COLOR its jacket is (oh, horror at the thought that she may discard dust jackets!) and where will it reside on her ‘color-coded’ bookshelves? (if you click on Amazon link, you’ll see the book is BLUE!)

Houzz-fans will love that the photos tell the who-what-where-why of some of Azzarito’s furnishings: a newly-reupholstered velvet couch (above); the wood cabinet purchased for $35 (ten years ago); the bits of DIY around the place; love-love-love the eBay Nepalese handles!

Pinterest-fans might “like” the one photo I pinned.

BTW, her bathroom is in SERIOUS need of a Top Down Bottom Up shade…. Call me (877-966-3678), Amy!
