weekly loves: for the lads

As a designer, I always try to think about who I am designing for. Who would wear these clothes? I’m sure most designers ask themselves this same question all the time. One of the ways that I try to visualize my customer is is by thinking of what other items are in their closet, what their ideal workspace might be etc,. I keep a lot of my inspiration images neat and tidy on this Pinterest board.

This is a little sampling of recent pins:

inspiration: seaside home

One summer, many years ago when I was maybe 10 or 12, my family went on vacation to Maine. That trip is one of my favorite childhood memories and certainly my favorite trip we took. I remember: the cool, salty air, riding bikes from our little carriage rental down to the cliffs, being amazed by the tidal pools, puffins, and lighthouses.

On this cloudy Austin afternoon, I’ve built my own daydreamy seaside home:
