Pattern Play in Miami

December 03, 2012

A couple of weeks ago I took a trip to Miami, a city that always gets my creative juices flowing. While walking the design district and hitting my favorite vintage stores and just soaking up my time at The Standard hotel I was constantly inspired by the patterns and textures that surrounded me.

Inspired By: Fall Leaves

Although spring and summer are my favorite times of year, I can't help but find the beauty in these autumn leaves.

Inspired By: Turquoise

Ever since I was a kid I've had a love affair with turquoise. I am drawn to the rich, invigorating color and it shows up often in my work. But the real inspiration comes from the sacred stone itself.

Inspired By: Vieques Island

July 25, 2012

It's been a pretty busy couple of months and I'm hoping to get back to some consistent blogging very soon. In the mean time I took the most wonderfully relaxing vacation last week with my best friend to Vieques, off the coast of Puerto Rico. I love traveling and getting inspired and I was hoping to post photos via Facebook and Instagram to document my trip in real time, but this island was so remote that I didn't get reception. What a treat that turned out to be... a real vacation! We stayed at the very modern and very cool Hix Island House. Below are some of my favorite sites and shots. Enjoy!

In case you weren't sure which bathroom to use at the Hix Island House pool...

Alison and I always manage to pick up a cat on vacation.

A quick stop by the new W resort on Vieques.

My Fun Q&A with Tami Ramsay

June 11, 2012

Tami Ramsay is my kind of girl. She's creative, smart, fun and driven. It's been a pleasure getting to know her so I was thrilled when she asked if I would do a little Q & A. Her blog is full of design treasures and resources and not to be missed!

Inspired By: All That Glitters in NYC

April 25, 2012

I love my trips to NYC! This time I got to attend the book party for Susanna Salk's new book, Be Your Own Decorator: Taking Inspiration from Today's Top Designers, in which I was happy to be included. Apparently I couldn't get enough of shiny, reflective surfaces while I was there, whether it be jewelry or clothing racks.
