Snapshots from Paris

IMG_3444

It's hard to believe that through all of my travels in Europe (Venice, Berlin, London), I have yet to blog about Paris. Artists have been flocking to Paris for centuries seeking inspiration for their work. I have always found trips to Paris to be uniquely inspiring. Everything in the city...

Snapshots from Miami

Travel always inspires my work, and recently I’ve found a lot to love in Miami Beach. I’ve started going there for a project, and at every turn there’s something fun to look at.

I’ve written before about Daniel Buren, the renowned French conceptualist that does site-specific installations. Over the years, I’ve been inspired by his bold use of stripes, colors, and geometric patterns, and the juxtaposition of his work against the iconic buildings in which he chooses to display them.

About

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by design and the subtle impact of our surroundings. Some of my earliest influences still resonate – I think of the dark woods and textured lodens of my father’s shooting club, the smell of fresh paint on a new canvas, and the bold symmetry of the Philip Johnson Glass house just down the street. For me, it was a natural path to become an Interior Designer. I love what I do. I’ve created this Journal to share my thoughts, finds and design inspirations. I hope you enjoy it!
