Knock knock, is anyone home? I know I've been awful at this whole blogging game (but sorta make up for it on Twitter and Instagram: @nickolsenstyle) ... J'apologize. Anyway I just HAD come back and shout about my biggest solo project to date, an apartment published in the July/August issue of Veranda:
MAJOR thanks to editor-in-chief Dara Caponigro for giving this space such prime real estate in her gorgeous magazine, stylist/producer Olga Naiman for setting the wheels in motion and arranging a mean peony, photographer Melanie Acevedo for these lush shots (trivia: she and Dara were also on hand for my big Domino cover moment back in '06 ... how time does fly), and Mimi Read for such a flattering story. And of course thanks to my clients for trusting me with their home, and for their unfailing sense of humor throughout the whole process.
If this didn't already sound like an Oscar acceptance speech I'll have to add my dear Mugatu, who's work is featured in Veranda AND Architectural Digest this month -- the latter a stunning spread in Greenwich, Connecticut. He never ceases to inspire.
Lastly I'm proud to say the dynasty continues with MRLLC alum Zach Motl, my friend (and Ralph Lauren window designer) whose crisp and airy 425-square foot studio graces House Beautiful's July/August Small Spaces issue.
Three cheers for print shelter media!!
