Here are five things that Sabrina is been really into right now…

1. Trendland
Staying on top of trends is the heart beat of any design field. I love the Trendland website because it showcases the hit list of all forms of design in one place. This way I can easily stay in tune with the design world as a whole.

2. Scouting NY Blog
I love living in New York City but I don’t have a lot of free time to explore. Nick Carr spends his time scouting locations for film shoots in the city, and then shares some of New York’s hidden secrets. From beautiful architecture to forgotten designs… he leaves you wanting more.

I recently downsized from a large house in the DC area to a small NY apartment. Extreme organization is key when you’re living in a small space! I’ve used ITSO in every single room of my house… even under my bed!

4. Urbio Magnetic Vertical Plant Holders
I was recently hunting for some great, natural wall art for my NYC apartment and fell in love with these amazing magnetic plant holders! These modular pieces are the perfect city garden.

Etsy is my guilty pleasure. I love finding hidden treasures and creative, unique pieces that people all over the world create… often at unbelievable prices! You can find anything from beautiful vintage pieces to amazingly handcrafted wood furniture. My absolute favorite thing about Etsy, however, is you get to support up and coming artisans!
