Astoria NY Interior Project

living room ig.JPG

I am so excited for this reveal because this was my first interior design I’ve ever done for someone else that wasn’t my own apartment. I’m not a professional interior decorator but I would love to continue building my portfolio and see where it goes!

Kristen reached out to me on Instagram after seeing some of my own interior posts on my page and she wanted to know if I’d be interested in designing her new construction apartment in Astoria. After discussing with her what her goals were I decided this would be a good fit for me and agreed to take on the project.

I had NO idea what to expect or where to even begin but I started with the basics and didn’t put too much emphasis on the final product. I knew the vision would come organically.



Working with a blank slate was a huge advantage! Since her apartment is small I wanted to give her a statement piece that wouldn’t crowd up any space so I decided on an accent wall across her living room. Since we couldn’t do herringbone floors we did a herringbone wall! I sketched up the design and then we had her GC build it for us, because we’re probably not the handiest duo.

Kristen really liked the style of my bedroom and wanted something very similar. I had originally picked out white side tables for her nightstands (I loved them so much!) but she needed storage so we returned them and got these mid century ones.

  • hola Pablo. #casamalca #liketkit http://liketk.it/2Dtxa @liketoknow.it
  • A couple of days ago we rented a car and drove an hour and 45 minutes deep into the jungle to visit this incredible cenoté. We witnessed an ancient Mayan wedding celebration which was one of the most incredible things we’ve ever seen. There were local cenotés near tulum but this experience was well worth the drive💀
  • our narcos inspired engagement session was taken at @casamalca - Pablo Escobar’s old private getaway 🇨🇴 👨🏻🛩💰💃🏼the photo shoot was short because we were both suffering from too many spicy margaritas from the night before (it wouldn’t be us if we weren’t hungover for our engagement pictures🤣) the rest of the photos are up on the blog! • link in bio • @mayoorquiin #tulum #tulummexico
  • Woke up in a paradise☁️
La Valise is an intimate, exclusive bungalow with only 9 rooms tucked away between the jungle and white sand beaches. It felt like our own private getaway! We extended our trip an extra night and Pasquale actually picked out this eco chic hotel (can you tell I’m rubbing off on him?😉) La Valise exceeded our expectations going above and beyond to make sure we felt right at home from the minute we got there. They noticed Pasquale’s birthday on his passport and even set up a special surprise for us!
Our dreamy room had a cozy bed and open shower with one of the cleanest beaches in Tulum - unfortunately there is a bad seaweed problem on the coast right now but they are working hard to mitigate it
You won’t find a warmer or more welcoming staff than at @lavalisetulum so if you have the opportunity to visit I highly recommend it!
  • sneak peak of our engagement photos🕊🕊 you make my heart so happy, I can’t wait to marry you🤘🏼
  • we’re supposed to be on the road heading to chichén itza but instead I’m laying here📍nursing a gnarly hangover. I think the bartender at casa malca misunderstood my tequila order as TE KILL HER.
  • on a spicy margarita diet🌶 #casamalca
  • don’t quit your daydream✨ #tulum
