Hello! I recently took a trip to New York City. I love visiting New York…the architecture, the fashion, the culture, the food…AND the shopping, of course!! It is such a fun place to visit and is great for inspiration. I think travel is one of the best ways to learn more about different styles of design and stimulate creativity. Here are some of the things I found inspiring in New York City.
Hotel design is one of my favorite things when travelling! Normally, the finishes and fabrics are not something you see in everyday design, and the scale can be massive!
Black and White
New York is always a few steps ahead of the rest of the country when it comes to design and décor trends. This summer, the black and white trend was everywhere! This trend showed up in tile, furniture, and clothing.
I love seeing the opulent décor that is used in hotels and bars. This over-the-top style looks great in commercial spaces, but needs to be scaled back for residential use…unless you are someone like Elton John!
Marble has been used for centuries in architecture and design. It has really increased in popularity over the last couple of years and can be seen in bathrooms and kitchens everywhere!
Intricate Architectural Details
It amazes me to see the intricate architectural details in many of the buildings of New York.
Perhaps some of the most inspiring things around New York are the large-scale sculptures! The artists who create these masterpieces have such talent!
I hope you have been inspired by these sites around New York City. Where are some of your favorite places to travel for inspiration???
Thanks for reading!
