New York’s design editor Wendy Goodman spends her days pounding the pavement, looking for inspiration and the next big thing. Scouting is a huge part of what she does: talking to people, hitting up events, and scouring the city for great design and stories, wherever they may be. We’ve asked Wendy to share some of what she comes across, from intriguingly decorated private homes to great new stores and fantastic new architecture. Her recent explorations took her to the homes of two interior designers, a new antiques gallery with a Parisian-flea-market feel, an inspiring construction site, and retail spaces ranging from the colorful to the minimalist.
