It’s getting hot, hot, hot! Most non-central air apartments in NYC are getting pretty steamy right about now. Once the temperature gets above 75 degrees, our office turns into a real hot box. Even with the air conditioner going, we still need a fan to circulate the air. Neither of us were too thrilled about going to buy a fan for our space (we were under the impression that it would be a major eyesore). But after a little research, it turns out there are some really good-looking fans out there that can actually enhance the look of your room. We picked up this little fan (see picture below) at Linens n Things and placed it on top of a stack of books on our desk. We love that the fan looks vintage, but works like new. (Photo above by Matt McGrath) We did a little hunting for the chicest new and vintage fans and came up with some great options. There are some fantastic antique ones out there that are very get-able, as well as many new fans that are vintage-inspired in their aesthetic with a little more power.
