With all of the sunny weather we’ve been having here in New York, I can’t help but dream of new sunnies. The styles from the Dries Van Noten x Linda Farrow collaboration are at the top of my list. @thedreslyn

Sometimes details are enough to set the tone for a collection. The Fall 2017 Beaufille collection is summed up nicely with this detailed image of the contrast stitched trench coat. @jessifrederick

Spring is on everyone’s mind, so when a white poplin dress exudes your exact mood, you take notice. @frankieandclo

Simplicity is best, both in fashion and at home and the master of such stylings is renting out her Brooklyn apartment for March and April. She took full advantage of instagram’s new swipe left feature, nicely done. @ashleyhelvey

This new Greenpoint, Brooklyn shop styled this table top still life fit for an 18th century painting. @thegreateros_

With all the political unrest here in New York City over the past few weeks, it’s hard to think of much else. I go between obsessing over the news and reading every article to having a media-free day where I bury my head in the sand. It’s refreshing to find some solace and hope through those who I follow on instagram.

I follow Camilla because she is a creative force of nature, but her instagram stories provide great political insight into articles to read and steps we need to take with our senators. @camilladeterre

The Row offers an update to the classic slides for spring with their new Capri slides.  @matchesfashion

I’ve recently found myself engrossed in simple still life images. The work of Caylon Hackwith is a new favorite. @caylonhackwith

This yellow tie-back dress points to sunnier days ahead, hopefully in a literal and figurative way. @blueeyedfringe

It’s hard to believe it’s already the second week in January. As the Women’s March on Washington approaches next weekend, I can’t help but find solace and motivation in the strong women who fill my Instagram feed…

“Take your broken heart, turn it into art.” Carrie Fisher’s words memorialized by Meryl Streep. @localcreative_ 

Winter floral imagery by @colleenmherman

Jen Szeto in The Round Tower of Copenhagen, one of my favorite architectural spots. @windowofimagination

A simple, minimal fireplace to warm up to this season. @caitlinflemming

I am often asked about what inspires my designs and my answer is always changing because my forms of inspiration are ever evolving. Inevitably, I find some form of inspiration on instagram, as I’m sure you have as well. This week, these are the instagram images that provoked new ideas within me.

An outtake from Unconditional Magazine editorial highlights two of my current favorite beauty trends, a thick, almost rogue eyebrow and a dusty matte eyeshadow. @unconditionalmagazine

Cross body bags are not only functional and practical but they seamlessly transition from day to night. The Medicine bags by The Row are at the top of my wish list this holiday season. @therow

Larissa Hofmann is a renaissance woman. Model, photographer and artist are just a few titles she wards. Her spilled coffee drawings are organic and unusual and I can’t wait to see more. @larryhofmann

This open dance studio in Versailles reminds me of taking dance classes while growing up. Dance was a form of creative expression and now I take that energy and put it into designing clothes. @thisispapermag

This image of Japanese Flower Collotype by Ozawa Kazumasa (c 1895) feels fresh. The color palette resonates with me as I begin to design the second collection of DE SMET. @maimoun

Whether we like to admit it or not, we all spend too much time on instagram. Well I’m here to feed your addiction. I love scrolling through my feed and viewing the world through the eyes of other creatives. It also helps pass the time while I stand in line at Whole Foods. In an effort to spread the love, each week I will share some of my favorite posts from the people I follow on instagram. Hopefully, you will find something or someone who inspires you as well.

As we get into the holiday season, thoughts of travel, gifting and layering up for the cold weather are filling my head. From what to buy your best friend and what to wear to the next holiday party to planning a weekend getaway to recover after the holidays, the to-do list is a mile long. Hopefully some of these posts can help you check off a few things from your holiday to-do list.

We are in the midst of designing new furniture for our apartment, so any minimally designed storage solutions are welcome. We have found endless inspiration from Nobbs Radford Architects @nrarch.

The simple stylings of Reese Blutstein motivate a closet clean out @double3xposure.
