1. Reykjavik, Iceland
Reykjavik, Iceland is my favored city on the planet. There are so many unforgettable things about it unlike something else in the world: row houses and roofs covered in super bold colors, from kelly green and electric blue to sunshine yellow and fire engine red beautiful black and white murals painted along the sides of buildings—and then the humpback whales breaching in the water. There’s really no explanation to ever feel about locking your doors.

two. Rose Bowl Flea Industry
My favorite place to shop is the Rose Bowl Flea Marketplace in Pasadena, CA.

3. Chris Burkard’s Instagram
Adventure photographer Chris Burkard’s Instagram feed is something I can’;t reside without. I even have alerts on my telephone that tell me when Chris has posted a new image.

4. Caleb Anderson
The gorgeous interior style operate of Caleb Anderson with New York City-based design firm Drake + Anderson genuinely inspires me. Caleb is a total classicist but he puts things together in this remarkably pared-back and unexpected manner, which is a best testament to the art of expert editing. A lot of times I look at Caleb’s projects and really feel I learn a lot from them.

As an interior designer, I’m continuously intrigued by the arctic island country of Greenland. It is almost uninhabitable due to its super rough terrain, jagged, rocky surfaces and the fact that 80% of its land is covered by an ice sheet. Yet, by means of wise style, Greenlanders inhabit it by setting up flat-packed kit homes on stilts that have formed small fishing villages coast to coast. And to make things cheery for the duration of the harsh gray winters, they’ve painted the homes in super vibrant main colors, which also identifies the professions of each and every homeowner, numerous becoming ecologists, hunters or educators.
