These chevron style floors are incredible. While I am not a fan of minimal/pop art style decor, the simplicity and colors in this photo are very inspiring - IN

I believe that Spring is almost here but there is still a chill in the air and I love the simplicity and the coziness of this beautiful wrap coat.  A perfect counterpart to frosty winds - IN

i’ve been trying to organize my “inspiration” board over my desk.  the board itself is constantly changing so it’s always a bit of a puzzle to reassemble all my different pictures.  i love the simplicity of this person’s wall. by just using green tape, the photo and the wall are left undamaged and her/his inspiration can change as much as possible - IN

I first saw this photo in the March/April 2003 issue of Teen Vogue when the magazine profiled the gorgeous Julia Restoin Roitfeld.  This photo of Carine Roitfeld mesmerized me and I haven’t seen too many portraits that capture this casual joie de vivre. If you had to choose one photo of your youth, how lucky you’d be to have something like this - IN
