Gallery Mondays: Peacock Wallpaper @ The Astor Room

IMAG5239

Last week I hung out with a few friends at The Astor Room in Astoria, Queens where I treated myself to a cup of mint chocolate chip ice cream.

I’d never been to The Astor Room before, but as I walked in, I immediately felt the 1920s speakeasy vibe of the place. Everything was so dark and sophisticated!

I loved the wallpaper lining the entrance by the stairwell, featuring peacocks and floral print. It’s simply gorgeous.

You should definitely swing by The Astor Room for some ice cream this summer if you get the chance!

An Afternoon in Hofstra’s Ceramic Workshop

Yesterday, during my 3 hour long break in between classes, I decided to visit my friend Sauani Hasan in the ceramics workshop at Hofstra to see how her peacock vase was coming along.

I got some great footage of her working on it. She’s quite the dedicated artist.

I cannot wait to see this when it’s done!
