This beautiful retrospective encompasses many of the most prominent pieces of modern art from the 20th century.  A truly inspiring and beautiful collection to study.


India Orange

India Orange

It’s always helpful to remind oneself of better, warmer times (especially when winter rears its head this late into April!)  New York, I love you but I’m in India in my mind. These gorgeous warm tones from my trip last summer are great color inspiration for us.  Vibrant greens and luscious orange next to the […]

We’re enjoying some color inspiration from Tricia Guild today.  Beautiful colors, beautiful prints, and a beautiful combination of the two.


Cerulean Blue Peaking Through

Cerulean Blue Peaking Through

It’s hard to find color inspiration when you’re living in a New York white out. But the snowy backdrop made this shock of cerulean blue all the more beautiful today. I had never even noticed this park bench outside my studio til it was surrounded by snow!      


Color Crush: Purple, Camel & Raspberry

Color Crush:  Purple, Camel & Raspberry

Great color inspiration from my recent trip to Architectural Artifacts in Chicago.  What a place!   Floors and floors of vintage this-and-that … from furniture to lighting … to tables full of these crazy beautiful bolts of thread. A nicely balanced palette:  purple, camel and just a little raspberry to set things off.      


South Beach Inspiration: Turquoise & Royal Blue

South Beach Inspiration: Turquoise & Royal Blue

Just after Christmas, I made a quick trip to South Beach to reboot after a crazy busy 2013 and gear up for an even busier beginning to 2014.  It was just what I needed for new color inspiration.  Turquoise and royal blue floated beautifully against the soft creamy gray sand. Today, as I work on […]


India!

India!

After so many years of referencing beautiful Indian textiles in the designs we create for Wooster & Prince and our Design Studio, I was finally able to go a few months ago!  The inspiration I found there was nearly indescribable … Delhi.  Agra.  Jaipur.  Bagru.  Every moment in every place was an inspirational shot in […]


“Living In Morocco”

“Living In Morocco”

While searching for inspiration for a new collection of prints we were developing in the Studio, I happened upon “Living In Morocco” published by Taschen.   Absolutely beautiful from start to finish,  I would have purchased this book for its cover alone!! Endless, inspiring photos of rich color combinations and gorgeous design and architecture made […]


Sonia Delaunay Inspires

Sonia Delaunay Inspires

Sometimes I see design and feel inspired  … and sometimes I see design and am utterly stopped in my tracks, unable to think of anything else.  The Sonia Delaunay exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York City last year was one of those moments. Color Moves: Art & Fashion by Sonia Delaunay, Written by […]


A Royal Coral

A Royal Coral

As so often happens for me, the newest collection of patterns I’ve just finished was inspired by far-flung finds that have little or nothing to do with one another … other than a fabulous color!  For a new grouping this Spring, a delicious royal coral was my muse and served beautifully to pull together a […]
