NeoCon {the dream vs. the reality}

Anyone who has ever wanted to go to or has been to the massive exposition of design products that is NeoCon will be able to relate to the experience of our guest blogger, Gabby Markowitz.

The Dream: To go to NeoCon


Present Tense {quote + photo = inspiration}

"Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future."
- Audrey Hepburn

Alys Beach

During a trip to Florida for our friend's wedding in May we decided that an afternoon spent photographing in nearby Alys Beach was a requirement. If you are unfamiliar with Alys beach your eyes are in for treat, if you are familiar you already understand our infatuation. Think crisp, white, and geometric architecture alongside sidewalks made of seashells and you have an idea of the beauty that is Alys Beach. Whenever I am there I feel as though the buildings are from a faraway place, it's nothing like anything I have crossed paths within the United States.


Blue Skies Ahead {road trip - part 3 - indianapolis}

Home of the Colts, Hoosiers, the Indy 500, and the Gary Indiana song from Music Man was pretty much all I knew about Indiana before my visit. We arrived in Lexington KY at 11 PM to find that our visit coincided with the Kentucky Derby.


Let Go {quote + photo = inspiration}

“The key to change... is to let go of fear.”
-Rosanne Cash

Change can be very hard. More times than not, it is not how you pictured or imagined. We worry so much and 9 times out of 10 things turn out better than we could have chosen for ourselves. After a long 4 years of change, in all arenas of my life, I am starting in a new chapter in a loft and this is my new view (I couldn't ask for more). What I have discovered is life has a way of surprising us if we let go.

Blue Skies Ahead {road trip - part 2 - nashville}

Welcome to part 2 of a 7 part series of my recent road trip.


We pulled into Nashville at dusk. The patios downtown were filled with people casually lounging. The expected blue jean skirts, boots, and cowboy hats were prominent.

– St. Augustine

I leave tomorrow morning for London, Paris, and Normandy - I am giddy with excitement!! 

I have worked out itineraries from personal recommendations, books, and of course the handy little internet. I look forward to coming back renewed and inspired.

Masculine Minimalism {EK Designs}

We happily re-introduce designer, Emily Koch (formerly known as Emily Browne). Do you remember her home tour? It was one of our very first posts. She has had a busy year, establishing herself as a designer and planning her recent May wedding. In addition she now has a new website where you can learn more about her and her work. 

Earlier this year she completed the design of a home for an Atlantan bachelor. The achieved look is both classic and masculine, suiting the client's needs and personality. 


Creativity {image + quote = inspiration}

Creativity comes from trust. Trust your instincts. 
And never hope more than you work. 
- Rita Mae Brown

Sometimes going the less traveled way in life can be incredibly scary. But you just might just find something amazing around that corner, so maybe it's time to take the unfamiliar route. 

We would like to say a big "THANK YOU" to all of you for your patience while we take time to repair posts and focus on things outside of Wonderlust. Be on the lookout this week for part 2 of our roadtrip series.
