Inspiration here, Inspiration there.
As the weather turns cold, I find myself turning 'in' a bit earlier and turning away from my favorite thing- being OUTSIDE. Fall is by far my favorite season. The weather is perfect, there is that fantastic feeling of starting over and start anew. That little 'sweet spot' of weather is only a mere few weeks, however. And I do miss the summer. Waking up on a Saturday morning and heading out for the day with loose plans. Finding yourself back at your apartment 10 hours later, after impromptu street fairs, bubble teas, and meet-ups with friends.
Late fall to winter always gets to me. I find myself itching for something... more? Something else. Things feel routine. The holidays are set in stone. Plans are similar to the previous year. I find myself looking for something new- something to inspire me.
We're lucky though. To find inspiration in New York City, all it takes is a quick walk down the sidewalk.
A few of my favorites from the past few weeks...
Keeping it simple. With words. Loved this custom made art piece found at my work's PR firm. Most important one for me: LOSSEN UP. Yeah. Need to get on that... stat.
Softest pinks. A close-up from one of the arrangements we used recently for a big event. I just love the lighting here. It was pretty cold and overcast this day but the lighting in our design studio was just right.
The Swell Life. This was right outside the Hester Street Fair. The Hester Street Fair is located on my block, pretty much across from my apartment. It's my favorite part of Saturday. The Hester Street Fair brings together a collection of NYC’s best vendors in a an outdoor marketplace at Seward Park, right on the corner of Essex and Hester.
Keep it classy inspiring, NYC.
