don't go changin'

as far as i can tell you either love rita konig or you don't. some say she is insipid..i say she's quite sipid. some say she is haughty, snobbish, a silver spooner. i think they would be right there. and i think that's part of her charm. but it's clear since her domino days her style hasn't wavered one bit. she is steadfast in her love of english delightfulness and girly glamour. and for that i am a bit envious, or at the very least curious. i mean my decorating fetishes are all over the map. i googled rita today b/c i actually miss her apartment, you know...the one that was always featured in domino. and for a while there i was so over that apartment i threw up a little every time i saw it. but i found these images from her newish blog over at the ny times and i have to say the little changes she has made have made me love it all over again, along with that quirky english hodge podge of treasures she does so well...

***update..ok, so it's not the same apartment, it's a new one. but the point is still the same.
want more of rita's blog?

lovely apartment, but let's cut to the chase. The Coconut Bliss you have been raving about....oh, sweet Lord of non-dairy frozen goodness...it is heavenly! Next to it in the freezer case was "Purely Decadent" coconut milk "ice-cream", so I tried that too for a comparison and it was stupid good as well. The mint chip flavor was creamier and silkier than full fat regular ice-cream - ubelievable. Best news: the Purely Decadent is on sale at Kroger for $2 less than Whole Foods. I bought 5 tonight.

when I fantasize - and i rarely have time to sit down and do that... i fantasize about fantasizing - I think of how cool it would be to have a reason to have a sweet little wet bar set up at all times for the lovely friends who drop in unexpectedly like that first pic shows.

Nice apartment. I love the little computer nook.

We all aspire to live like Rita. Don't we?
The textures and living spaces work in real life. Go Rita.

I like it. Snooty or not.

I think the space is lovely - I particularly like the bedroom (it's in my "bedroom inspiration" files). And I like the computer nook in the closet - the chair is great.

i still have the sticky note stuck on my computer monitor where Rita Konig jotted down her phone number when she was *in my store*.
let me know if you want the details.... long story.

she is very, very nice in person.
