Journal Entry #5: Orange and Red


This room is one of my all time favorite inspirations for comfortable and chic living. They represent an eclectic and well-traveled individual who has excellent taste and can create beautiful vignettes with all of their pieces they have gathered from around the world. I’d love to live in either space. The tables from Caste Design are such an innovative design and would go in both super modern or traditional homes. Journal5

This entry is from my 2011 journal, right after I moved up to Brooklyn. I started to really like the brass/wood combination, whereas before then it looked very traditional to me. The desk is so classic, and has been knocked off my almost every major contemporary furniture company. I’d love to see those suitcases stacked in […]

Journal Entry #1: Aqua Walls and Octagon Table

In college, I had a professor that made us keep a creative journal where we would record ideas, sketches and any inspiring images we came across. This was way before Pinterest, and while I do love to pin things, I still tear things out of magazines and make little journal entries. Unfortunately, I didn’t start recording my sources until recently so I don’t have sources for everything but I still like to look through them and get inspired.

I am so in love with these aqua walls – especially with the symmetrical artwork and styling.


This is from one of […]
