Ok so there is no blog by the name of C plus C, it was just my way of letting you know that I (Camila) got to meet up yesterday with Caitlin from Caitlin Creer Interiors!
Caitlin was on a mini vacation with her family and I was very lucky to have her squeeze me into her trip. I know she had lots to do with friends to visit, sites to see and even a client meeting or two so it was great that we were able to meet up.
We met on Spring St (side note: When I met up with Lauren we also meet on Spring St. Totally random and not really planned)
From Spring St we headed out to grab a bite before we hit the shops. One has to always be on their A game when shopping so nourishment was a must!
We stopped for some roasted corn, drinks, and design talk at Cafe Habana.
From there we decided to make our way to John Derian. We had a couple of pit stops along the way and checked out the decor at Tory Burch!
The shop is unbelievable beautiful. Not only filled with amazing clothes and her signature logo, but the color orange is everywhere! Totally heaven plus it also sparked some design talk with two of us and how we dress ourselves really ties into our interior design style!
Where we said, Love about a thousand times. The sale associate was totally bummed when we walked out empty handed, but we promised to return when we had more $.
The next stop was completely unplanned. As we were turning the corner at Billy’s we stopped dead in our tracks at the awe of an amazing townhouse that was right before our eyes. It took me a second, but I then realized it was the home of……..
Legendary designer Miles Redd. It was too good to be true. We took out our cameras and started shooting away. In doing some research this morning about the home I found out that his sister and brother in law actually live on the first two floors. Totally makes sense to me now, because yesterday during our shooting a stunning blonde woman opened the door. Let’s just say she didn’t look pleased. I just smiled and waved and took this shot below.
We took a peek in the front windows and saw a glimpse of the curtains with just a little touch of ruffle. In searching Miles’s portfolio I think this may be the room we were peeking into:
This is just one of many reasons why I love NYC you never know what you are going to stumble into. We pretty much decided that stumbling onto Mile’s doorstep was a sign that we meant to be in the design field and we were totally going to make it.
We finally arrived at our destination John Derian. If you are ever in NY you must it make your main objective to visit his two shops. They are full of inspiration, love and plain old pretty!
*I was too chicken to whip out my massive camera in this shop so these images were borrowed from Haystack Needle.*
After lifting our jaws off the floor we left empty handed! I’m already thinking of making a return trip next week and picking something up for myself.
Our next stop was ABC Home, but of course we stopped along the way at ….. KMART! KMART is a go to store for a budget decorator.
The store is like a dream. Beautiful, but at times totally unattainable. We used it is an amazing piece of inspiration! We were already talking about new DIY projects we wanted to try out.
At this point we had to say our goodbyes. It was so sad. We totally meshed together, have a very similar design style and love using a lot of DIY in our projects. It was great to have someone to bounce ideas off of. I so want Caitlin to move back and we can conquer NY together!!!!
On our way out I saw a glimpse of one of my favorite shops: Fishs Eddy.
This is also another must if you are in NYC.
Lucky for me Caitlin was walking that direction as well and decided to stop in with me. I guess she couldn’t get enough of me 🙂 So we did a spin around the floor and then she really had to leave me. So sad.
I hope you enjoyed seeing a little glimpse into our lives. It was a lot of fun. I was so overwhelmed that I totally forgot to snap our shoes, but don’t you worry we looked stylish and chic.

ON THE BLOG
My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.
Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.
On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.
Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]
Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]
For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
omgah, I'm headed to K-Mart ASAP!
lucky you…no bloggers near me except for sea of shoes and her mom…
"We pretty much decided that stumbling onto Mile’s doorstep was a sign that we meant to be in the design field and we were totally going to make it." I love that. I lived in the city when I was at NYU. Such an adventure, all the time!
What a fun afternoon and I cant believe you just happened to see Miles Redds house- it is just STUNNING!!
Wow, that sounds like such a fun day!!! Thanks for taking us along with all the fun pictures! I so want to go Fishs Eddy!!
So excited to see this post! I'm pretty new to living in NYC and just yesterday I went to Fishs Eddy for the first time (fell in love!). Such a great city to explore, love your blog. 🙂
Ah that sounds like a really great day…a fuller version of a day i've had a few times. SO jealous of your Miles Redd find–it's totally fate!
Looks like you had a fabulous day! What a treat to meet up with another blogger so talented. Love that door and the pinapple lamp.
What an awesome post… so many wonderful things!! Roasted corn- yum!! And those leopard chairs in that designers's room you peeked into are AMAZING!! And I think I would like to have one of those pineapple lamps for myself!!
Looks like I need to make my way to the closest K-Mart. Fabulous post!
This is such a wonderful post. It made me want to hang out with the two of you! 🙂 Glad you had such a great time!
It really was a wonderful day. I have a head full of thoughts to email you but it will have to wait until I get home.
SO so fun! Thanks for a wonderful afternoon!
What a wonderful shopping day! I just adore John Derian & his work. Haven't seen his shop in real life but I've seen his pieces all over!
Camila, it sounds like you two had a blast. I would love to meet up with you when I'm up North in the fall.
Camila- Sounds so fun. Thanks for sharing your day with us.
Love John Derian… but have never been to his shop. Will have to do that the next time I head to NYC.
Off to look at the Kmart stuff now…
sounds to fun! (loving that pineapple lamp!!)
I love John Derian's plates! It'd probably be bittersweet for me to visit his shop – I'd love to see all those pretty things, but I'd be so sad that I couldn't take them all home with me!
And I love the lamp. Too bad we have no Kmarts near us. 🙁
WAhhhh! Thank you for reminding me why I am dying to return to NYC. I haven't been back in a few years and I've been aching to go and see ABC and Fish's Eddy.
I'm going to go pout now.
So jealous, wish I had been there. What an amazing townhouse, you are so lucky to have stumbled across it!
