I will always be a lover of print and snail mail.
Like many of the design-obsessed, I am constantly searching for inspiration via magazines, catalogues (hello J.Crew!), brand books, invitations and pretty much anything that lands in my mailbox. My weekly CLIPS OF THE WEEK series will feature my favorites of the week - both old and new!
If you know me, you know I love a good blue and grey interior. From the Herve Van Der Straten bronze chandelier to the gorgeous LouisXVI- style armchair upholstered in Edmond Petit 'Polka Dot,' this Paris sitting room is royal perfection... and literally! It was designed by Jean-Louis Deniot as a pied-à-terre for a Middle Eastern princess.
When I flipped to this page, my heart skipped a beat! I was honored to design these custom butterfly and bird headpieces for the talented Juli Alvarez who styled this shoot for Inside Weddings. LOVE a non-traditional bridal look!
Drew Barrymore, the queen of flowers amongst zillions of flowers?! What's not to love? Floral inspiration overload...
One day when I leave Manhattan, I will own a claw foot tub and perhaps, I will paint it royal blue like this one in the Marrakech home of Samuel and Caitlin Dowe-Sandes'. IF I ever leave Manhattan...
Dolce & Gabbana advertisements are definitely the most cheerful in the business as of late... and hello summer headscarf inspiration!
