Domino Pop Up Shop at Citypoint in Brooklyn

Domino Magazine is my all-time favorite home decor magazine so when I got called upon to cover their VIP party at the newly opened, and beautiful City Point (Brooklyn mall), I just had to see it for myself.  Golden Globe winning actress, Maggie Gyllenhaal (and my little Juliet) graced the opening reception to the delight of photogs.  Is it just me or does one seem strangely more at ease in front of the cameras than the other…

We walked into a burst of colors, tropical fruits and a summery soundtrack that immediately put us in the mood for the season.

Together, we enjoyed fruity popsicles, enjoyed the festive party go-ers and shopped the store which included so many stylish finds.  Domino expertly curated items from the best of the design world including: Dusen Dusen, Bushwick Kitchen, Found My Animal, Bushwick Kitchen, Recreation Center, and Fredericks & Mae and proceeds benefited Prospect Park Alliance’s community art project, The Connective Project.

Those are patterned soaps by the way in that first picture! What a fun way to freshen up your bathroom decor or leave a little hostess gift behind, huh? The whole space was just breathtakingly beautiful.  But what else would you expect from Domino?

The appetizers could not have been more alluringly laid out either.

Even the bar area provided plenty of eye candy!

Overall, we had a swinging good time and highly suggest that if you’re in the area you drop on by!

Play House at Toiletpaper Paradise, an Interactive Art Installation in NYC

If you’re looking for an off-the-beat, unique art experience in NY, the gallery at the Cadillac House is a must-see!  For Instagram addicts, this is THE fantasy selfie station.  With all sorts of wacky backdrops including fish wallpaper, crocodile statues, and spaghetti floors, it’ll have you posing and preening in all the nooks and crannies of its psychedelic space!  We loved it because not only did it spur a fantastical imagination, it was interactive!  What child doesn’t want to touch and feel?  This pop-up apartment envisioned by Ferrari and Cattelan encourages you to explore and more!  Here is Juliet jumping on the bed and playing Cinderella by vacuuming the floors!!

And just like with any other apartment, this one required a lot of household chores.  We started our day getting ready at the vanity, then found dirty laundry sitting on the bathroom floor, a kitchen with dinner uncooked, and hungry pets to feed.

With so much to do around the house, you might just need to, lounge and call a friend from the comforts of your colorful bed.

Needless to say, Toiletpaper Paradise was SUCH a fun place for her and I to play pretend.  We went after school pick up (around 1:30pm) on a weekday and were the only ones there!  I highly suggest going during the weekday with your kids to fully enjoy the space.  After you’re done, you can treat yourself to a little something at the beautiful cafe that they have and also browse the latest Cadillac models!   IMG_1097 IMG_1098

What a fun mommy and me outing this was!  Click here for more of our fashionable adventures around the city!

The exhibition was made possible through creative media agency Visionaire and Toiletpaper MagazineFerrari and Cattelan are co-creators of the latter. Toiletpaper Paradise runs through April 12 and is free to the public.
