local inspiration | I adore you

If you've followed me for a while, you know by now that I am inspired by all things local. On the contrary, I am fueled by wanderlust and the organic inspiration that happens when I hop on a jet to a new city. It is easy to walk past the same buildings, cafes, and boutique stores and take them for granted. It is when I take a step back and act as if it is the first time I am seeing what is before my eyes that I truly can appreciate what they have to offer me. 

Yesterday I had the privilege of seeing something I could describe to you as our new modern-jungalow-escape-from-DC obsession, The Apollo.

It was as if I stepped into Anthropologie or Salt & Sundry. With my jaw dropped and camera snapping, my friends gave me a good chuckle at my clearly impressed reaction. 

From the floor to the ceiling, it was a scene out of a photographer's dream. 

I #havethisthingwithfloors, as you probably know from my Instagram feed. I love myself some good tile / show off the new shoes photo. 

The light fixtures alone took me away to a destination wedding that I wasn't ready to come back from. 

Everywhere #tilegoals. 

Needless to say, Apollo DC, we will be back. Hopefully enjoying the perfect nap in your perfectly designed loft. 

Stay tuned for more local inspiration and be sure to always #CreateRight.
