Go ahead. Steal my sources.

One of the best things about being in a creative field is the abundance of beauty that surrounds me every day.  Sometimes a photo of a dining table will inspire a color palette, or a pattern on a dress will bring to mind an idea for a floral installation.  However, when putting so much creativity out each day, sometimes it's nice to just refill the well of inspiration, so to speak.

So I have a ritual of occasionally sharing all my sources with whomever may read this.   I believe if I share, others will too and some new inspiration will cross my path.

So here it is.  My favorite places to seek inspiration when I'm working on a design project, looking for ideas for my displays, or simply just need a dose of beauty to clear my mind.

A lovely agency in the UK representing beautiful and beautifully appointed locations

I prefer the magazine, but the website will do in a pinch.

Again, I prefer the magazine, but the website will do.  Any international news stand will have both Milk Decoration and Ideat so you can feast your eyes on the printed version.

A beautiful shop|cafe in Lyon designed by Daniel Rozenstrauch of Merci Paris.  Their website also has pretty pictures of various projects around Europe that are a feast for the eyes.

One of my favorite people, and an amazing stylist and art director, Kendra's professional site has so many pretty pictures.  And her instagram account is charming. Fun and real, while still inspiring.  That's a hard balance to strike.

This chic children's clothing brand has a section on their site for "Muses," filled with photos of chic and stylish families and their homes.

My Design Library
Over the years, I have collected piles and piles of design books and magazines.  Occasionally I'll sit and flip through a book or magazine from the bottom of the pile.  I believe design is cyclical, and often I will come across something ten or 15 years old that feels fresh again.

I hope by sharing some of my favorite sources, the universe will reward me with a new well of inspiration.  Or perhaps you'll just text me with a favorite source of your own.
