On our old website, we may have covered Elmwood Village as a good spot to hit up around Buffalo. But, seeing as we have a new site and the weather is starting to suit walking up and down Elmwood Ave… we’ll revisit the area. Here’s why:
Elmwood probably has the highest concentration of boutique shops compared to anywhere else in Buffalo. Plus, the number seems to continue to grow all of the time. From consignment shops like Second Chic to high-end, custom men’s tailoring like Bureau, Elmwood is the place for clothes, accessories, gifts and more!
Food & Drink
Looking for a healthy sandwich? Check out the Lexington Cooperative Market. Want a nice craft beer and some pub food? Head over to the Blue Monk. Want a nice glass of wine or a cocktail… check out any number of Elmwood restaurants. The restaurants are fantastic and you are certain to find something that you like!
Farmers Markets & Flea Markets
Everyone likes a good farmers market – great local produce and it’s just fun to walk around in the nice weather. Same goes for flea markets. So, check out Bidwell Park every Saturday for nice local farm products, or walk down a bit to the flea market if you like antiques.
Continuing with our Wednesday Pinterest Board feature, we will take a look at “Interior Design” by Design Collector. This board features a lot of modern design, some of which resembling Kissling’s Buffalo loft interiors. Many of these concepts can be applied to our Buffalo apartments as well…
Notice how cool the above space looks, yet there’s not much to it. Everything looks as if it belongs there, and it feels very comfortable, even as a photograph.
Notice the juxtaposition of the classic looking sofa with mostly “modern” pieces surrounding it. Sometimes this can be difficult to pull off, but it’s definitely doable with the right ratio or classic to modern.
A lot of apartments and lofts have random nooks, and it can be difficult to figure out how to utilize the space. This is a great example: a small table, a few accents and a bit of art. You can throw your keys, bag or whatever on the table, and it makes for a subtle bit of charm in what could be an otherwise charmless part of a room.
We are very excited to have a new website to post about Buffalo apartments, interior design, architecture and Western New York in general.
On our old site, you might remember our various features: Wednesday Boardom, Thursday Things to Do, frIDay. We will make sure to continue these types of posts, and we might even add other categories to the list.
So, keep checking in and make sure to take a look through our new site, especially if you seek apartments for rent in Buffalo NY.
Be back soon with new blog posts!
