Fabulous design aside, nothing makes me happier than spending quality time with my family and friends. This is why the holidays fill me with so much joy. Schedules finally start to wind down and everyone becomes more focused on simpler pleasures, like sharing good food, great wine, and lots of laughs.
There are so many places, people and things that inspire me. Thanks to Instagram and interior design blogs, finding inspiration has never been easier. And even though I’m always finding something new, there are a few interior designers I keep coming back to. It doesn’t matter whether I’m looking at their Instagram or reading a blog post, I always find tons of inspiration. These interior designers have such unique design perspectives and an amazing eye for design.
Can you believe that it’s December? This wonderful year has passed by so quickly, but I’m so thankful that it’s the holiday season once more! Absolutely one of my favorite times of the year when our minds wander away from work a bit to reflect on family and friends. As the studio wraps a busy, successful, and rewarding year we are also wrapping up gifts!
As an interior designer, you learn about “design rules” early on. But after a few years, your style evolves. Very much like the old adage to “not wear white after Labor Day,” you realize that some rules were meant to be broken!
I always say there is no real “rule book” when it comes to interior design. Really, it’s more like a set of standard industry best practices to get you started. Then you create your own rules. After all, the point is to trust your own design instincts!
Thanksgiving left us with so many things to be thankful for: time with family and friends, delicious food, and some much-needed naps. But now that we’re back in the swing of things, we’re finding inspiration everywhere we look. It’s time for our November design obsessions!
