On what must have been the hottest day during one of the hottest NYC summers ever, my industrial pipe bed broke. (That statement makes me feel a little self-conscious and I’m compelled to note here that it didn’t break in a dramatic fashion; the pipes started to sag after six years and in my attempt to fix it with a hex key, I made everything worse — much, much worse.) So I was sleeping on a mattress on the floor when I met Nadia Yaron and Myriah Scruggs from and since I made the first bed myself, I decided to turn the new one over to the pros. Redoing a big piece in a room like a bed or a sofa can result in a bit of a domino effect. No sooner did the new bed arrive than everything else seemed to look a little shabby by comparison, so we made a few room updates and the lovely filmed the whole process. (A big thanks to for the music!) For those of you at work, I’ve detailed some of what we did in photographs below! — Amy A.
Note: If you’re in NYC, you should definitely check out the and meet Myriah and Nadia! (And don’t miss Myriah and Nadia’s sneak peek!)

Nadia and I had an email thread about bedding that was embarrassingly long. (Embarrassing on my end – I dithered on every decision and Nadia was amazingly patient!). Here are just a few of my favorites that didn’t make the cut, but I still love them!
1. $24; 2. $225; 3. $89 -$129; 4. $89.50; 5. $490; 6. $180 – $220
