We’re officially heading into the weekend inspired! Here’s what we loved most this week:
— Designer Sarah Sherman Samuel has revealed another one of her projects, and it’s an absolute gem! Take a tour of Mandy Moore’s new office, which is reminiscent of her Pasadena home with lots of earth tones and curved details.
— If you’re looking for a new project, take a peek at Windy Chien’s new book, The Year of Knots. It’s a beautiful hardcover book that features plenty of projects, tutorials, and transformative personal stories… a must for any creative!
— We’ve started a new series on our IGTV called Fivizzano Fridays! Annette Joseph bought and renovated a 12th century fortress in Fivizzano, a small town in Tuscany. In our weekly IGTV series, she takes us on a tour of the property, sharing tidbits about the complete transformation (there used to be bats in the living room!!) and the vintage furnishings she’s found in Italy and beyond. This week, we get a peek at the main house. (It’s a dream!)
— Technology is doing amazing things in the world of design. Just last year, ICON debuted the first-ever permitted 3D printed home (!!!) and this spring, they unveiled new technology that will print affordable housing in Austin, TX. ICON has partnered up with designer Claire Zinnecker to unveil a new visitor’s center, with an end goal of providing dignified housing for Austin’s homeless. Here’s a short video that shares more.
— Art is the easiest (and coolest) way to show off your personality. We love this post on sfgirlbybay, which features a variety of eclectic and eccentric art. Talk about inspiration overload!
— Anyone else ready for fall fashion? We are counting the days until it’s officially cool enough to be called #sweaterweather. In the meantime, we’ll be outfit planning. How cute is this casual cashmere look??
