Welcome to The Week In Pictures! We had a holiday weekend here in the U.S. and I took full advantage of it. I managed to have a drink with my Grandma at Edgefield, spend a day criss-crossing town with my brother (stopping at boutiques and food carts along the way), peek my head inside The Ace, dig out a bunch of my all-time favorite magazines (I have a few hundred stored away in my office closet), take a relaxing walk across the Reed College campus and catch up on emails (always a huge relief).
I don’t know why I’ve never spent much time on the Reed College campus because it’s so pretty and totally reminds me of grand East Coast colleges. We took Rocky there over the weekend (he’s getting pretty spoiled by these destination walks!) and I’m hoping to head back again ASAP.
I was inspired to clean my office and dig around my own magazine collection this week and I found this i-D issue featuring Jessica Stam which has long been one of my favorite covers. I wish this was a poster!
I was feeling restless on Saturday and wanting to enjoy the last bit of Summer so my brother and I headed out to explore some of our favorite boutiques. Our first stop was into his friend Bernadette Breau’s shop which is an antique and interior design mecca. Chandeliers, taxidermy and tons of amazing furniture cover every square inch and we always have fun digging around. I love this red chair – if only I had a spot for it!
Next, we headed downtown to Rich’s Cigar Store which is the best place in town to buy magazines. It’s interesting too because for as many magazines as I read, I am always discovering something completely new. Like this bizarre yet stunning cover!
And, it’s always a good mail day when my clients send me stuff. Luke Copping is always exploring ways to get his branding out there and sent me these patches he just had made. It’s been quite a few years now since I did his identity but I still love it just as much.
Have a great weekend and try to make time to explore your own city. It’s amazing what you can find lurking around — inspiration is everywhere, we just have to look for it. And for even more behind the scenes sneak peeks, join me on Instagram (username: nubbytwiglet).
