Stay Dreaming

Lately I have been so hooked on scrolling through Tumblr. I think it is a beautiful outlet for self expression. There is just something about it that feels safe, where you can freely express your thoughts and feelings free of negativity…

Artist: Egon Schiele

Egon Schiele will always be my favorite artist. I fell in love with his ability to create confrontational portraits with his signature nervous and loose line work. This signature graphic style welcomes distorted figures and defies conventional norms of beauty, which is one of the many reasons he is my favorite artist. Personally, I find the average standards of beauty to be very boring. I love any artist or designer who goes beyond these contrived norms and makes the viewer feel something new, even if it is initial discomfort. To me, that is intriguing. As a leader of expressionism, his imagery is deeply psychological. There is much more that meets the eye.

Interior: Texture

This past weekend I went to North Carolina to go to High Point Market, the largest home furnishing trade show in the world! It was a great experience browsing a number of showrooms and seeing how each of their styles vary. More importantly, it really made me begin to think about how I want to decorate my apartment when I move to New York next year. For one, texture is so important. I love anything rustic and woodsy. I noticed I gravitated towards pieces that weren’t too polished and had a more ‘lived in’ feel. The inspiration images I pulled above reflect my ideal space which combines various textures from faux fur throws to wooden tables that look as though they came straight from my backyard.
