inspiration everyday * everyday inspiration
Often the question comes up of how and where do I get inspired from a design perspective…
For me it’s simply that I get out there with me eyes wide open no matter where I am with ferocious curiosity. I look up, look down, open doors, ask questions and go into corner’s (you never know what you might miss otherwise) of wherever my adventure might take me. Those adventures are sometimes a hike out in the wonderful world of Mother Nature, exploring a city and all it has to offer, rummaging through a flea market or in this case an amazing visit to Palm Springs.
Palm Springs for me was an EPIC ULTRA hotbed for all things design and inspiration…here is my Show & Tell.
It’s the absolute best day the year…the first day of Summer!
No better way to start the Summer celebration than with a Palm Springs MuuMuu Memory….this is living my friends!!!
Mirror mirror on the wall…oops I mean mirror mirror on the entire house inside and out. True fact and not a typo!
Art is alive in the desert and man do I love art that invites you to participate in all its glory and splendor. Entering this reflective ranch was as if I was dropped into a gigantic kaleidoscope…magical!
This architectural installation, Mirage, by Doug Aitken was part of the Desert X Exhibition and will remains until October 31st, 2017. A for sure must see if you find yourself anywhere near the Palm Springs area.

It’s that time of the year where I am summer dreaming…but sun drenched days, a totally chill vibe and beachside bathing is not all a girl dreams about. What else you ask??? What she is going to wear durning the best season of the year!!!
The optimistic yet chill vibe of summer brings out of my all time fav looks…first is the bold and bright Palm Springs esque look grounded in a pattern palooza of bright colors, oversized sunglasses, a statement bag with a splash of terry cloth and a muumuu for good measure.
The alter ego to my Palm Springs style is another one of my all time go to looks…the Laurel Canyon Boho vibe which is solidly achieved by throwing on a floppy hat, oversized sunglasses, batik and hand printed anything, simple sandal’s and a macrame accessory to top it off!
Don’t be fooled macrame is not only for amazing wall art owls or functional yet fashionable hanging plant holders…it is for accessories as well!
My show and tell today are of two of my most recent macrame acquisitions that can support both of my go to summer looks…
Mad for Macrame,
