steeling beauty

On Friday, I was a couple of storeys up in SOHO. Looking to secure a moment to munch on cookies from Dean and Deluca with my children, I pulled them into a window enclave to quell our sweet tooths. Gazing upwards while deciding if chocolate chip or ginger were as stellar as my Mom's (no), I spotted this most glorious window dressing from across the courtyard. Delighting truly only the airspace (and my crumb freckled grin), each window was outfitted with fabulous metal shutters. Their effect on the space instantly reduced the scale and intimacy of the site. Loved it.
