friday in pictures. inspiration for the week ahead. 

Today’s quote was inspired by yesterday’s Google doodle, a tribute to designer Josef Frank. His patterns are stunning–forward and edgy, but truly timeless (Frank was designing in the early 1900’s)– and there is no question that for decades his patterns have been the direct inspiration for the most popular collections from home retailers such as Pottery Barn and Anthropologie.

The content of today’s quote resonates with my own design aesthetic, and I love the simplicity and clarity of Frank’s words.

The photo was taken at a favorite brunch spot that is so cozy, it feels like home.
