Weekend Picks

This weekend I watched the 1979 film “Manhattan” and was inspired by the black and white film that was filmed as such solely to give  New York City a “great look”.  This week I’m stealing that idea from the cinema pros with ways to give your space a black a white look.  The Weekend Picks are sleek metropolitan [and a little trendy ] ideas perfect for a Manhattan inspired Pied-a Terre.
