A Wintry Walk
05 Mar '15 —
Took a walk today to enjoy the last bits of winter. Dowdy colors and bare branches were everywhere in Berlin.
While indoors, I discovered a few new websites.
A Seattle based graphic designer chronicles her journeys (recently to San Francisco) in a series of beautiful photos. Minna's minimal aesthetic is found through some of the work she showcases on her blog. Although I'm not a fan of "inspirational quotes", Minna varies the way she plays with the font and she adds mini illustrations to make them quite interesting (certainly pleasing) to look at.
Bell and Smokey
UK based blogger Laurie Prescott provides recommendations for fashion and travel. Her preference for immaculate clean colors and silhouettes shows up in the selections she features. Her outfit photos include a glimpse of life in Birmingham, UK. You can get a sense of the architecture from the background of her shots. Perhaps she wasn't focused on such details, but I'm always surprised the images that show up when someone takes a photo of their normal everyday surroundings (it may not be anything interest to them, but for people around the world, such details are very interesting).
From My Dining Table by Skye McAlpine
Skye McAlpine is an English woman living in Venice. She cooks up and serves the most decadent plates of food. It's really a fantasy viewing her blog. Dinner parties are held in centuries old palazzos, the wandering streets and canals are captured and revealed as corners of her storybook lifestyle. Every bit of her blog is enticing to the senses.
