On a recent trip to Iceland, I took this picture out of the car window as we were driving through the Southern coast. It's not particularly well composed, but I love how the yellow fields are set off by the dark gray blue of the sky. I usually favor cool neutrals or black in white in my work, but this photo has me reconsidering.
I worked on this project while working at New Amsterdam Design Associates, and am so happy to see it profiled in the New York Times! My favorite thing about Interior Architecture is the idea that it's always better to adapt and re-use, and I think that is exemplified so well in this building.
This is a beautiful Park Slope building that had been abandoned for years, with virtually no architectural elements left on the interior to salvage. However instead of tearing it down, we fully gutted the building and restored the it, creating beautiful modern apartments behind a classic Park Slope facade.

Over the past few months I've seen an lot of modern mobiles in design shops and blogs. I'm a lifelong Calder devotee, and it's great to see so many modern incarnations of this art form, both for the home and as large art installations. They're inspiring me to try some of my own, especially Saskia Pomeroy's version of abstract wood shapes.
This bathroom from George Nakashima's Sanso Villa is just wonderful. I love the mix of blue, white, and wood, as well as the incorporated bathtub and illustrations (inspired by his grandchildren!).
One of my biggest challenges as a designer is staying fresh and letting things go. It's easy to get bogged down, especially during long studio projects when the stakes are high and you want to get it right.
This video about artist and designer Dominic Wilcox is a great reminder to have fun and experiment. It's full of inspiration and awesome projects, and is a great pick me up on day when things feel stuck.
