Coffee Design

I'm working on a coffee shop renovation and have been looking for a little design inspiration. A well designed space goes hand and hand with a well designed cup of joe. Here are a few of my favorite locales to get my caffeine fix.

Stumptown Coffee at the Ace Hotel in New York City

Intelligentsia Coffee in Silverlake, CA

Jo's Coffee in Austin, TX

the anthropologist

today i'm proud of my man's beautiful photos of copenhagen featured on the anthropologist facebook page's weekly moved section. the anthropologist is put together by anthropologie and is a non-commercial site with a mission to "support the work of inspiring individuals". i can't wait to see what they continue to add to the site.

Westward for Kate Spade

Kate Spade surprised me recently when they announced they were doing a handbag collaboration with the West Coast chic duo, Emily Current and Meritt Elliott, that is Current Elliott.  The collection is called Westward and its inspired by vintage silhouettes and constructed with beautiful luggage leather and antique hardware, oh and some sequins too! I got a sneak peak at all of the pieces a few months ago and instantly knew that this was a smart and unexpected collaboration that really works for both brands.  The campaign styled by Emily and Meritt is chic, whimsical and smart. I love. 

This clutch is my favorite!
