I love that visual inspiration is right at our fingertips – on Instagram, Pinterest, etc. BUT sometimes my eyes need a break from a screen and I just have to go offline for inspiration.
Lots of times that involves a quick walk around the neighborhood or putting together a new style guides (which I physically hang up around the studio). But other times, I just want to open up an actual real life book – gasp! (not on an iPad or Kindle) for inspiration.
SO, I’m starting a little series that’s geared towards inspirational books and periodicals that are my go-tos for offline inspiration. They’ll be broken down into categories, like books for the interiors lover, the coolest magazines for creatives, etc, etc. And most are Amazon Prime! Are you into this idea?! Let me know because I’d love to hear your thoughts.
