Lighten Up

03 . 13 . 14

I was thinking about how to lighten up my wardrobe for spring while staying warm in the cold weather. Adding white accents to my grey pieces seems to be the ticket. Hopefully this will inspire you as well.  All images via tumblr

New York is a wet and slushy mess today.  I thank my lucky stars that my morning commute is from my bed to my desk.  I still can’t completely escape the grey skies and black and white landscape though.  Here’s how it’s inspiring me today.  Place de la Madeleine – Rue de la Paix Paris […]

Gridiron Greats

02 . 01 . 14

I took a quick trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art this week and happened to walk past the Gridiron Greats exhibition.  The museum has a selection of vintage football cards on display in honor of the first ever Super Bowl played in New York. Even if you don’t like sports, I think you can […]

21 Suggestions for Success by H. Jackson Brown Jr.  Marry the right person. This one decision will determine 90% of your happiness or misery.

When you work on a book, you realize during the process that sometimes certain elements don’t work or you don’t have enough pages to include everything you had originally intended. Lucky for me, I knew that I would be able to feature these interviews and workspace photos on the blog.  While we did feature photos […]

I sometimes go to stores not just for shopping but for inspiration.  Often the paint colors and decoration borrow from home design so it makes sense. The new Chloe store in Soho is one of my new inspiring stores.  The pale grey exterior had me at hello but the brass rails, shelves, and light fixtures […]

Off to Atlanta

01 . 13 . 12

I am off to Atlanta this weekend to attend the Atlanta Market and to speak on a great panel at AmericasMart.  Maxwell Gilingham-Ryan of Apartment Therapy, Christiane Lemieux of DwellStudio and I will be discussing Daily Design: How the Everyday Inspirations from Blogs Change the Industry on Saturday, January 14 from 3:00-4:00pm in Building 1, Floor […]

Mellow Yellow

01 . 09 . 12

Even though Pantone has declared Tangerine Tango the color for 2012, I still think yellow is going to be just as big.  From shades resembling an egg yolk to pale lemon, it’s bright and cheerful yet chic. Yellow and black usually reminds me of a bubble bee or Steelers uniform, but it’s starting to grow […]

Warm Winter Orange

01 . 05 . 12

My love of orange is no secret.  Especially burnt orange. I saw a space so beautifully decorated with the color yesterday that it inspired me to put together another little compilation inspiration post.  Enjoy.  All photos from tumblr

In the Mood for Spring

09 . 20 . 11

One of my favorite things in the world are inspiration or mood boards.  Looking at them is like peeking into someone’s creative mind.  Vogue posted some during seasons past which I posted here and here.  For Spring 2012, Vogue.com featured inspiration from not only New York but also London fashion week.  Definitely click to enlarge […]

By Invitation

07 . 29 . 11

A few readers asked me about my bulletin board so I thought I would take a minute to explain.  It is actually an old one that came from my childhood bedroom.  I covered it in batting and then attached fabric with a staple gun.  When a board has ribbons, it’s usually referred to as an […]

In between changing my address everywhere and fighting with Time Warner Cable about why as an existing customer I don’t qualify for Triple Play, I am mentally redecorating my new apartment. What’s funny is that I think the owner chose me to rent the place the minute I told him that I was an interior designer.  He […]

In case you need help setting the table, here is a little last minute inspiration.  Happy Thanksgiving! Photos from Martha Stewart, Domino, Carolyne Roehm, and Country Living

Smooth Sailing

08 . 08 . 10

“It is not the ship so much as the skillful sailing that assures the prosperous voyage.” – George William Curtis

I have to say that the best part of going away is being able to share my experiences with my readers who may also be planning a trip. There were so many wonderful places that I visted in LA and one that impressed me the most was the Jenni Kayne boutique. It’s right now the […]
