I stumbled on an archived？post on Automatism of some pictures of jewelry designer？Ted Muehling‘；s New York City apartment. Blogger Lori had reprinted an article on Muehling’；s apartment that she’；d saved for years， from？Maison Francaise in the late 1990’；s. The place looks as appealing today as it did then (THAT’；S style). In response， a woman named Joanna wrote “；SO beautiful. i’；m downloading these？for the inspiration journal…； xo”；.
The Inspiration Journal. It reminded me of folders I’；ve often kept of clippings from magazines： of spaces I liked， or ideas I wanted to pursue. Seeing pictures can help you bring to life your own ideaspersonalized gifts for him for birthday， as you take the gist， or a kernel， or a detail and run with it. Nowadays， it can be done digitally of course， and kept on a computer or printed out. An Inspiration Journal is a much better way of framing things than a “；bookmark”；.unique gifts for men
There’；s great software available that allows you to organize ideas in the different formats you find them in –； web pages， pdf’；s， jpegs， text –； all together. My favorite is？DevonThink， which allows you to view live archived webpages from within a folder， or color-correct a jpeg.
Lori’；s Muehling post has given me much for an Inspiration Journal for my apartment…；
…；a spare curtain to separate the bedroom
a utilitarian kitchen with shelves full of found things and art：
and his beautiful， utterly simple bookshelves (a separate post to come on those， soon)…；with a folding wooden step stool for reaching high.
