NYC Notebook: Black + White @ The Armory Show

Some of my favorite pieces at The Armory Show were definitely putting me in a black and white state of mind.  I recently rediscovered this amazing Antwerp home of the Belgium architect, Vincents Van Duysen's. It was shot by the ever so lovely and talented Ditte Isager for Vogue Living a couple years ago.

What I love about the mix of this home is the element of pure, raw forms against the stark black and white palette. The amazing artwork and hand-thrown ceramic lamp bring warmth and personality to what could have been a cold environment.  In that same way I love these three pieces of art from the Armory Show. I am always a sucker for an artist's sketchbook.
Who wouldn't want a thank you note like that from Sol LeWitt?
