Ashley Woodson Bailey Prints

I have a major soft spot for floral photography. Whether it’s dark and moody or light and airy, the delicate layers of fresh flowers are irresistible for me. I’m always trying to learn new ways to photography flowers around the office from Max, but I’m also excited to discover photographers and stylists who are taking…

La Sardina Capri Saracena Camera

It’s cold and gray here in Brooklyn this morning, so I’m waking myself up with a much-needed dose of color. Sometimes that does the trick better than my first (and second) cup of coffee. I am probably one of the palest people around, but I actually love anything that reminds me of the beach. This…

Jon Duenas Photography

There are times when I think I’d love to dissolve into nature. Particularly relaxing beach days or the rare morning spent on a dock somewhere away from the city — those are the moments when I feel most at one with the natural world. When I saw these photographs by Jon Duenas, they reminded me…

alexandra valenti

On the heels of a weekend that was full of rain and dead mice, I could use a little color. I came across these beautiful photographs by Alexandra Valenti on Caitlin Mociun’s blog and haven’t been able to stop staring at them since. They remind me of grown-up finger painting in the best way possible….

pink: having a moment

Can we talk for a second about how pink is having the craziest moment ever? I have never been a big pink person (I was more of a purple girl growing up), but for the past year I have been squealing like an idiot any time I find something in a super-saturated shade of pink….

graham lott photographs

Sometimes commenters give the best tips ever. After professing my love for Leanne Shapton’s floral paintings, the team at Luster NYC suggested I check out Graham Lott’s Rose series of photographs. And they were spot on — I love them. Deep, dark and dramatic, these photographs represent the other end of floral artwork that I…

patterns from above

Few things are as beautiful as the earth from above. Although I favored aisle seats on our 30-plus book-tour flights (faster for making connections), I typically prefer a window seat, so I can watch the landscapes below. These beautiful photos were taken by Brent Yaggi & Sarah Hicks from a Cessna 172. Based in Denver,…

sivan askayo photography

Sometimes I wish I could trade lives with D*S editor Anne Ditmeyer for a day. She’s one of the bravest and most talented women I know, and she’s been living in Paris long enough to fool me into thinking she’s a native Parisian. She sent over a link to photographer Sivan Askayo’s work and knew…

sam kweskin photography

When Amy and I were in Charleston for the book tour the other week, I found myself completely blown away by the work of a fantastic photographer, Sam Kweskin. Sam’s work was on display at my favorite local coffee shop, Hope & Union. The stunning large-scale photograph (above) of a beach shot from above was…

One of the highlights of last week’s book tour trip was getting to spend time in Athens, Georgia. Before our event, we had the pleasure of joining Rinne Allen for a quick tour around town, followed by a delicious dinner at The National with some amazing women. I’m constantly in awe of fantastic artists coming…

james henkel photography

I love re-discovering areas of fine art that were once passions of mine. When I was younger, I used to look through photography magazines and advertising award catalogs, pulling out pictures that caught my eye. I’d later collage them onto my notebooks and binders, alongside pictures of Kurt Cobain and Eddie Vedder, to serve as…
