pin-spiration: installation art

During my last semester of college, I took a course that discussed the interaction between art and the environment. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, and though a lot of the coursework was pretty boring, I learned about some amazing large-scale installation artists.

You’ve probably seen Yayoi Kusama‘s polka dots and infinity rooms all over Instagram, and I LOVE her, but in this edition of Pinspiration I wanted to include monumental works by Christo and Jeanne-Claude as well as installations from my all-time favorite artist, James Turrell.

pin-spiration: tile

I LOVE TILE. When I was in Morocco I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the tiled doorways and gardens. So beautiful, so thoughtful, so precisely laid. From simple subway tile to colorful mosaics, I’m constantly inspired by images like these ones.

pin-spiration: SPRING

Spring has sprung! Well, kind of. And Happy Easter to everyone who’s participating! I’m so excited to celebrate the end of Lent by getting to eat ICE CREAM again. Since warmer weather is in the (hopefully) near future, I wanted to round up some colorful, spring-y images that are keeping my winter spirits up.

pin-spiration: millennial pink

Millennial pink has been “in” for a while now, but I don’t think it’s going anywhere. From iPhones to water bottles, I take every opportunity I get to make a purchase in this color. Here’s some pastel inspo from Pinterest.

pin-spiration: color

Even though my wardrobe is mostly made up of neutrals (there’s a lot of navy blue, black, and gray in my closet), I love unexpected pops of color and pattern, whether a pair of bright sandals, flashy earrings, or jewel-tone nail polish.

This week, I wanted to share some of the cheery and colorful images I have pinned to my “color” board on Pinterest.

How do you work color into your daily life?

pin-spiration: typography

I love words! And fun fonts! Color! Shapes! Typography is a no-brainer pin-spiration category for me. In another life I would love to be someone who gets to think of these fonts and make words look cooler than they already are.

pin-spiration: wanderlust

In the style of last week’s post, today I’m sharing some of my favorite Pinterest finds. I’m always inspired by all of the beautiful travel pins on Pinterest, so I’ve rounded up some photos of places I have been dying to go. It took forever to decide on just a couple of pictures, and my “Wanderlust” board has more pins than any of the other ones. What are some places on your bucket list?

1. Jaipur; India.

I’m pretty sure these are hotels, but I am in love with the colors and details of these buildings. I would absolutely love to go to India

2. Zhangjiajie National Forest Park; Hunan Province, China.

I’m absolutely obsessed with visiting this park. Ever since seeing Avatar for the first time (and being obsessed with it ever since), I was totally inspired by the “Hallelujah Mountains” and am dying to go. I’ve never been to China, or even Asia, so it’d be a great trip.

3. The Blue Lagoon; Iceland.

This would just make a super cool Instagram to be honest. And Iceland in general seems like a pretty amazing place to spend a long weekend.

4. Antelope Canyon; Arizona.

It’s kind of ridiculous that I haven’t been here considering the amount of national parks I’ve visited on family vacations, but I am DYING to go to Antelope Canyon.

5. Angkor Wat; Cambodia.

Again, just crazy beautiful…I think the next major trip I take will have to be a trip to Asia. Thailand is pretty high on my bucket list, too.

6. Sacred Grove of Bomarzo; Viterbo, Italy.

This literally looks like something out of a fairytale, and since the only time I’ve traveled to Italy was when I was 11, I’m longing to return.56630dfdbd5b171bc9ae31c842f6e235.jpg
