Design Inspiration with Marie Flanigan

As a designer, I am always on the look out for my next source of inspiration and it can come from so many different places as well as in many different forms – a printed fabric on a blouse in a store front window, brushstroke colors on a piece of art, texture on a piece of pottery found at an estate sale, or simply through the work of others. Much of my inspiration comes while admiring the work of some of my most admired designers and artists, we all have our own unique style when it comes to designing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be influenced by the creative works of others.

Today I’d like to spend a moment appreciating one of my sources of inspiration – Marie Flanigan. She is an extremely talented designer, I see her work as natural elegance and always so full of light.

Upon “entering” any one of these rooms, you can’t deny the serene and calming vibe bouncing back at you. Neutral tones set off by flashes of gold, natural textures, tailored lines, all come together to create “refined elegance and innovative simplicity.”

An Andrea curation, with a little Marie flare, to get your juices flowing this fine Friday morning! Enjoy and remember, inspiration is around every corner!

Toning into Fall

Summer 2017 has been fulfilling and one to remember, but I am ready to greet Fall with open arms, and in 15 days I will be doing just that! I’m feeling ready for a reason to wrap a scarf around my neck, fill up on lattes and pumpkin spice aromas, and all things in warm tones. Who’s with me!? The color experts at Pantone released their Fall 2017 Fashion Color Report for New York Fashion Week, and they are cozy.
