Like I said before, social media is not only a great way to connect with others who share similar interests (which I LOVE!) but a wonderful source of inspiration as well. I can lose myself for hours on Pinterest and Instagram has become my favorite scroll. In fact, I can’t even imagine designing without the visual exposure that the internet has opened us up to. Some of the most beautiful homes, art and design knowledge are only a Google search away.
So for today’s easy Friday post, I want to show you some of my favorite images from my many social feeds as well as some independent searches on the works of Yves Klein and Henri Matisse.
It is all about blue and greens for me this week, like almost every other week. I’ve been studying cottage gardens and the play between colors, texture and ways of achieving bloom-y flower beds throughout the seasons. I’ve been pinning surprisingly many dining rooms, hydrangeas and picket fences. I’ve been admiring John Stefanidis’ Greek island villa on Patmos, a sea of calming blues and whites. Fashion was also at the top of my list, as I’m always looking for ways to simplify my wardrobe. Over the years, I’ve learned to appreciate comfort above all and do my best to make the appropriate wardrobe decisions.
