Food porn

I’m art directing a shoot this week with food photographer Ryan Szulc. I’m learning so much watching the stylist do what they do best.

Earth Patterns

Beautiful things on our planet, found on Google Maps.

Material Valley

Objects and textures and palettes - oh my. Loads of inspiration from a top materials and finishes colleague. Thanks for sharing, J!

Holding Pattern

On her blog Holding Pattern, designer Lauren O’Neill collects beautiful satellite images of airport tarmacs from above, where the baggage fees and long lines and flight delays melt away into a neat, orderly vision of grass, concrete and tiny, toy-like planes. (via Fast Company)

The Line

The photography. The spaces. The styling. A SoHo apartment filled with lovely and inspiring storied objects.

The Black Workshop

Absolute. Perfection.

Imagine Finding Me

In her “Imagine Finding Me” series, London-based Japanese photographer Chino Otsuka inserts her current self into her childhood photos, envisioning what it might be like to meet herself as a child.

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
