My Latest Obsession: Waterlogue

I’ve been a little addicted to the Waterlogue app, which transforms regular iPhone pictures into what appear to be detailed watercolors. I love how soft and luminous everything looks. Even the texture of the “paper” shows up in the images and white surfaces transform into beautiful negative space. This week I’ve been having fun turning snapshots of my home into elegant gestural paintings and it’s impressive how much the pictures look like real watercolors.

It’s been a while since I’ve written about the renovating of my house here in Highland Park, but the rooms have slowly taken shape over the past year. As with most designers’ homes, I can’t say they are done – the rooms will probably always be in progress! But I’ve been happy with the transformation these past months. It’s fun to see the rooms from a fresh perspective, and I love how the Waterlogue pictures distill the rooms to their bare essence.

Here’s a sneak peek:

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!
