I don’t know if it’s the Winter blues or flu blues, but something has me down and out today. I woke feeling a bit “colorless” and uninspired.
What to do? Straight to the computer and Google Chrome transport to my favorite textile designers for some dream inspiration.
I love her Ocean / Seaglass rug! I love everything about it! The color, the texture, the image. It reminded me of my Reflection Colors photography collection and the soothing patterns and colors of the ocean waters.
I am a big fan of Angela Adams. She’s one of my design heroes and I’d LOVE to work for her! When I first saw her line I was smitten. Reading how she describes her line on the about page, it all made perfect sense. angela adams is a casual, modern, luxury brand representing an optimistic view of the world spoken through a language of color and pattern.
Color and pattern. No wonder I love her designs so much. I also LOVE that she has photographs of the actual inspiration behind each of her designs. As a photographer who wants to design based on photos I find this so inspiring and validating. Stop by and check out her website and beautiful designs.
First off Jonathan Adler is hilarious! I love his fun, colorful, and whimsical designs. His personality shows so strong in his designs and I’m always inspired by the authenticity he shows. My inspiration choice for today?
The Jonathan Adler Haines Chair in Flax. Simple color. Fantastic design. I love the curves on this chair. I could sit in it all day with a good book, my journal, and some hot cocoa! It’s classic, yet quirky. True Jonathan Adler style if you ask me. I wouldn’t mind working for Jonathan Adler either, of course. Only problem is I might have to wear Depends to work because I’d be laughing so hard…
His travels and photos are the stuff of my fantasies! I’d like to follow him around for 6 months and take pictures in the Souks, in the streets, in the sheets…NOT LIKE THAT…have you seen John Robshaw sheets? If so, you get me.
Today I went for pillow inspiration with John. I have a thing about pillows. They make me happy. They bring the “thing” to furniture and bedding. Here are two of my favorite pillows I found today. They are both from the Messy Blockprint collection. I could put them on that Jonathan Adler chair and be quite satisfied.
I could also put Jonathan Adler’s Bargello pillow on that chair and be quite satisfied….It’s my favorite JA pillow!
I hope you have colorful places to turn for inspiration when you’re feeling a bit “under the inspiration”. If not, well, you can borrow mine any time! There’s room for all of us.
Have a great day!
