Ahead of the first American stop on my #makeyousmilestyle tour for the Bright Bazaar book, I was lucky enough explore Downtown NYC with my friend Justin Livingston from Scout Sixteen. Justin was kind enough to spend the afternoon of his birthday showing me around some of his favourite spots, and while the weather wasn’t on our side – it was the 10th wettest day in NYC since records began! – we were determined not to let it dampen our spirits. With good pal and talented photographer Dabito in toe, we set off colour hunting around the city to take in everything from a tasty brunch and stylish fashion boutiques, to interior design gems and vibrant outdoor artworks. Plus, we discovered the perfect way to enjoy gelato on a cold NYC day. Click over to west elm’s blog Front & Main to read the tour and discover eight need-to-know downtown NYC addresses. There will be #makeyousmilestyle parties at west elm stores in Chicago and LA next week.
