My name is Michelle Carangi and I’m the owner, editor and interiors lover over at Holley & Gill. I knew immediately that New York would be the topic of this guest post as soon as the lovely Chedva asked me to put one together while she was away there. Thank you Chedva for having me here and I do hope you’re having a blast!
I’ve been lucky enough this year to have had the opportunity to visit New York a few times and on every occasion it has knocked me for six. The first time was in the spring and my drive for creating was dulled by a string of trying events but once I had set eyes on its cityscape through the windows of the plane, my heart knew this was what I needed.
New York has the ability to capture every sense in the body and revive it. Your entire being is consumed by the city and all you can do is let it all happen. Exploring the streets with its cobbled roads, small cafes, designer clothing and furniture stores are all so entrancing that it makes you feel as though you could forever be inspired by every one of its boroughs.
I couldn’t feel any more refreshed, renewed and revitalized after visiting this city and when it's all over and I’m back in Montreal, the longing for another whirlwind back to the Big Apple remains a constant hum. If the opportunity presents itself to travel, you can bet New York is always at the top of my list.
