I’m always curious about what everyone else is inspired by because that inspiration tends to seep into whatever we’re doing, whether it’s writing, design or altering our living spaces. Here’s what’s currently inspiring me in a major way!
INSPIRATION BOARD 01
1. Bambi Northwood-Blyth for MUSE by Tim Barber. This entire shoot reminds me of long summer days. 2. Kelly Jill’s photography. 3. Anything from Margiela in lemon yellow! I already have these shoes and they’re like a big exclamation point to finish off any outfit. 4. Nothing says summer like this beautiful portrait of Elisa Sednaoui for Bazaar Spain. 5. I’ve wanted a clever bookend like this forever. 6. The hand-illustrated chalk drawings by Dana Tanamachi totally blow my mind.
INSPIRATION BOARD 02
1. Sometimes we need a little reminder to stay true to who we are. 2. I fell for this Asos dress that Gala showed me but it sold out before I could snap it up! 3. I love the rustic charm and hefty type on this grain sack pillow cover. 4. Open interior spaces. 5. The Prada Fall 2011 campaign is the epitome of otherworldly 60s. 6. I want Emma Stone’s entire mod wardrobe in the July 2011 issue of Elle. 7. I’ve always loved this Anthony Burrill poster.
INSPIRATION BOARD 03
1. Tsovet watches. I’m not big on recognizable status watches, instead preferring something that is a bit more unique and under the radar. 2. Luxe accessories with major edge like this bag from Versace Fall 2011. 3. I never get tired of a structured, all-black wardrobe! 4. The work of photographer Ditte Isager is the epitome of understated cool. 5. Loving The Landing identity by Jamie Stolarski. 6. The August 2011 German Vogue cover featuring Claudia Schiffer is gorgeous.
INSPIRATION BOARD 04
Well, this really isn’t an inspiration board but can I take a minute to profess my love of Kate Spade’s current site incarnation?! Graphic gorgeousness in black and white and classic with a dose of pop. The brand’s use of type and patterns is always spot-on.
