New York Subway Sign Prints

by Jamie Sanford on May 11, 2011

New York Subway Sign Prints

I really like the idea of representing a part of your life or your past with references to public transportation.  We know how well Jennifer Lopez did with referencing the 6, so why not put up images in your living room that refer to multiple train stops on the NYC subway lines?

Product description:

COLLECTION OF 3 NEW YORK SUBWAY SIGN PRINTS (11″ x 17″)

A bit of Americana brought back from New York subway cars of the early 1900’s, featuring stops throughout NYC. These prints have been carefully reconstructed and professionally printed using UV protected ink on premium archival recycled 110lb stock. A distressing technique has been applied to give the prints a worn, vintage look.

Etsy seller Flying Junction offers a collection of pieces, and doesn’t limit the collection of public transportation references to just New York – San Francisco, Chicago, Paris, London and more are available as well.

This particular set of 3 New York subway sign prints is available from Etsy seller Flying Junction for $49.

Roomspiration: White on white office space.

by Jamie Sanford on January 17, 2011

Welcome to another new feature on The Daily Wishlist.  I love seeing the inside of other people’s homes – blogs like Apartment Therapy and Style at Home have me salivating on a regular basis.

Today’s first Roomspiration post comes from a photo I saw on Style at Home, in their Best Interiors of 2010 piece.

I didn’t realize at first that this was meant to be a dressing room/closet space – that seems to be a pretty obvious desk in the middle and I was immediately excited about having a house one day with an office like this for me to cook up all of my madness.  (I’ve been really wanting my own office space lately – I don’t have an office at home, and since I’m the one in my home who has a laptop, I don’t get much use of the one desk that we have.)  Not a big deal though, if I had a space this big, I could definitely see it doing double-duty as an office and a place to keep my clothing and accessories.  I tend to gravitate toward dark furniture but this room is really appealing to me at all.

Anyway, I have 2 items today that I think could help to recreate this room.

This is a dresser from the Hemnes collection at IKEA.  The Hemnes collection is quite big and there are multiple options available, such that I’m sure one could recreate the storage situation happening in the photo in whatever space is available to them.  This particular 8-drawer chest of drawers is available from IKEA for $299.

I think this is the actual chandelier from the photo.  This is the Kristaller chandelier from IKEA, and is a great deal at $39.99. I like the grouping of chandeliers here but I would almost want to try grouping 3 chandeliers that are slightly different together – and bonus if I were able to find them in some sort of thrift-shopping situation.

Feel free to send in photos of locations that I can use for future Roomspiration posts!

Renaissance Globe Bar for Fabulous Entertaining

by Jamie Sanford on November 16, 2010

Will and his frozen butterbeer.

Will and a Butterbeer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Today’s guest blogger is my husband William.  Here’s a photo of him from our September trip to Florida, where he thoroughly enjoyed some frozen butterbeer.


I would start drinking a lot more whiskey if I owned one of these.  It is a beautiful and classy addition to the library or office of any self-respecting lush.

Not only is the map on the outside beautiful, but on the inside surface there are illustrations of the constellations.  I can think of no better way to let booze be the center of your world.

Here’s the product description:
