My Inspiration…January 28, 2010
My new apartment is rather temporary (we’re moving again in four months…), but still desperately needs a little something. Today I created this inspiration board to lift my spirits. It’s plastered with things I love (click to enlarge if you like). A run through starting in the top left corner — a letter press “K” from Kate’s Paperie in Soho, on old photograph given to me by my French host family of their estate in Provence, a pretty silk flower from H&M (love a good bargain), a fortune I found in a cookie the week I moved to West Virginia that reads “Great things happen when men and mountains meet,” the T magazine logo done up in jewels by Karl Lagerfeld, “You always look so cool” quote by Fitzgerald, admission buttons from the Met, a vintage monogrammed locket, a card from my grandmother with photos she took of the vineyards back home in California (sent to me when I lived in Switzerland), a black and white photo of my grandparents leaving for their honeymoon, a poem torn from a book, a polaroid of John I took in Maine (its so cute—he’s blinking), a photo of grandmama Rita from the sixties in her trademark HUGE sunglasses, a childhood snapshot of myself looking like a boy (my mom thought the haircut was cute—thanks mom), a postcard of an Alex Katz painting… Have you had enough? Now it’s your turn. What would I find on your inspiration board?
What, my darling readers, inspires you???
