yummy apple green

A punch of color always brightens my day. And an inspiration board filled with snippets of art makes me think of possibilities.
I came across this very inspiring home office of photographer Lara Parent on Herman Miller's blog. I love that Lara gets her color fix by adding chunks of color. And like me, she is utterly fascinated by other people - their stories, art, objects in their homes. Read here for the rest of Lara's story and do check out her stunning blog. The visuals, people stories will feed your soul.

An awesome hooded blazer

FOUND this very cool new clothing line of scrumptious jackets on the fantastic blog Sartorially Inclined . The PDX brand Bridge and Burn sews up some mighty stylish, yet functional light outerwear for both men & women. Having lived in Portland, Oregon, these pieces on on the mark for the office, biking to the store, exploring the hidden staircases or even dressed up a bit for a Saturday night date. The Majorette hooded blazer shown here - perfect, perfect, perfect. I could wear this daily in Portland; a good part of the year in Virginia. And can I rave a bit about their logo? Portland is the American city of stunning bridges. Their logo sites my fav St John's Bridge. Again, perfect! Click here to find your perfect piece.
