Wednesday Boardom – “Apartment Design” by Kari Günther

Wednesday Boardom – “Apartment Design” by Kari Günther

Kari Günther’s “Apartment Design” board features a lot of plant life in various apartment interiors:

Table with Plant

In addition to the small plant, this farmhouse-style table makes for a great, natural look, especially alongside the simple leather sofa and the print area rug.

The hanging plants and the tree stump coffee table really give this space a feeling of life, nature and comfort. Very cool.

Again, more plants, this time spread throughout the kitchen. The place almost looks like a greenhouse!

With it being spring, it’s a good time to get some plants to bring into your Buffalo apartment. Get them growing nice a strong through the summer and they shouldn’t have a problem growing through the winter too!

frIDay Interior Design: Utilizing Reclaimed Wood

If you have any access to wood for reclaiming (whether through an old barn or a junk yard), I suggest you use it! Reclaimed wood not only makes for easy, beautiful DIY, but it can turn a rented apartment space into a unique extension of yourself.

Depending on how handy you are, you might find certain projects more doable than others. Below, you’ll find a few ways that you can use reclaimed wood for your interior design.

 

Wall Accents (Or an entire Wall)

Reclaimed Wood Wall

You may want to limit the extent to which you do this in an apartment, you applying reclaimed wood to a wall can add a natural, rustic feel to a space.

 

Table/Desk Tops

Reclaimed Wood Table

Applying reclaimed wood to a table or desktop can turn an ugly piece into a work of art. If you ever find yourself disappointed with the look of a tabletop, try finding some old wood to throw on top!

 

Storage

Barnwood Storage

Bookshelves, boxes and storage in general can be kind of boring. But, taking some old barn wood and making a craft out of it can make your storage into a focal point of a room.

Thursday “Things-to-Do”: Niagara Falls State Park

Well, this is somewhat obvious, right? It is one of the natural wonders of the world, and everyone knows about it.

Niagara Falls

But, if you’re new to Western New York and you live in one of our downtown Buffalo apartments, you might not realize how close the Falls are. Even if you live in our lofts that are a bit more to the north, maybe you haven’t made it over to the wonder as of yet.

Even if you have been, maybe you didn’t know of a few things that the Falls offers:

 

Goat Island

Goat Island

Goat island offers a few great views of the falls, several smaller islands (Three Sisters) that are fun to look around, as well as some great spots for picnics. Go exploring and, even if you’ve been there before, you’ll be sure to see a side of Niagara Falls that you haven’t seen before.

 

Devil’s Hole

Devil's Hole

Devil’s Hole State Park is just a bit north of the Falls, and it makes for great hiking if you are so inclined. A fantastic way to escape the city, you’ll be sure to get a workout and see some beautiful nature – just be sure to bring a hiking buddy, since the trails can be a bit dangerous.

 

Bridge to Canada

Rainbow Bridge

If you didn’t know, you can walk over Rainbow Bridge and check out the Canadian side. Along the way over, you can see a great view of the Falls, and Canada has beautiful gardens, fun night life and even a Duty Free. Keep in mind that you will need a passport or enhanced license to get through the border, and it’s a good idea to have some cash handy in addition to any cards that you might have.

298 Main St.

298 Main Street – Located on Main Street near West Swan Street and Cathedral Park in downtown Buffalo

SPACE AVAILABLE – CALL ROSE SEEGE at (716) 853-2787 ext. 102

History – Situated in the core of downtown Buffalo, 298 Main Street was first developed by Dr. James Platt White in 1881 –  an eminent citizen who was influential in the creation of the University of Buffalo School of Medicine.  The “original” White Building, as it was then known, was 7 stories tall and the first fireproof building in Buffalo.  In 1905, Dr. White’s widow, Mary Anna White, replaced the original building with the current structure – the “new” White Building (now called The Main and Cathedral Building).  Designed by the renowned architecture and structural engineering firm of R.J. Reidpath and Sons, it is constructed from concrete and brick and fronts both Main Street and Cathedral Park.  The building’s architecture is quietly elegant, blending the symmetry of Georgian Architecture with Italian Renaissance design elements such as stone dentil cornices.

Vision – We are adaptively redeveloping 298 Main Street into a mixed-use transit oriented development with Class A office space, live/work loft apartments, penthouse lofts, a stunningly appointed lobby and ground level retail space.  The building will contain 14,000 ft2 of ground floor retail, 45,000 ft2 of office space and 45,000 ft2 of residential space – including 24 live/work lofts on floors 7-10 and two penthouse lofts on floor 11.

Amenities – Among the amenities included in each apartment will be granite countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances, modern energy-efficient lighting fixtures and in-apartment laundry units.  Building amenities will include: 24 hours a day security and valet parking; 16 hours a day concierge; video intercoms to announce guests; and inclusion of utilities (except electric), cable and internet.  All apartments include 1 free parking spot at the Pearl Street parking garage with guaranteed availability of 1 more for a small monthly fee.  NFTA Metro Rail stops (in both directions) are less than 100 feet from the entrances and at least 15 crosstown NFTA Bus Stops are within a ¼ mile radius.
