Channeling A Constant Source Of Inspiration

by ·

Paying attention to the world around you can be a great way to draw inspiration into your life and bring fresh ideas into your home.

Everyone has a unique way of seeing, and understanding your distinct eye and what is aesthetically interesting to you can help develop your individual style.

As a photographer I’ve grown to be hyper-aware of small details around me, and through capturing light, color, space, and texture, I’ve found that small differences in these elements can have a large impact on my mood and feelings.  With this in mind, I believe that we can take what makes us feel relaxed and comfortable or bold and focused, and use this as inspiration in designing the spaces we spend the most time in.

Over the course of a few weeks, make an effort to hone in on details that would normally go unnoticed in your daily life.  Pull out your phone and keep a running notebook of images from the surroundings that make you stop. In the end, see what underlying similarities you can pull from these photos and how you can utilize these elements in your house or workspace.
