The Couch Sessions held the second installment of our designer room curation series NUance with Dee & Ricky this past Friday at The Nu Hotel in Downtown Brooklyn. NUance transforms four hotel room walls into blank canvases, allowing a hand selected series of artists the ability to create breathtaking designs. Each room project is matched with a custom music playlist curated by The Couch Sessions.

The ground-breaking twins of urban couture Dee & Ricky tricked out The Nu Hotel with a lego telephone, clocks and an interactive velcro headboard. The brothers brought their native Staten Island street style to the New York City runway and overseas when their creativity caught the likes of Marc Jacobs, Pharrell and the Satorialist. Their pieces have been worn by Takeshi Murakami and Kanye West.  If you missed the first installment of NUance with Icy & Sot, check it out here.
