I find myself being increasingly inspired by a certain look that I can best describe as cultured bohemian. It’s an anti-glam aesthetic movement that has an edge of darkness to it that I find extremely compelling. The New York City based photographer Seth Smoot is a genius at capturing this textural, moody look and I cannot get enough! I wanted to share some of my favorite images from his latest work with you. You can see more and read a little bit more on his website: sethsmoot.com. He’s also got (shocker) a fantastic Instagram account: instagram.com/sethsmoot
I am thrilled at the revival of age and texture in interiors – rooms that look brand-spanking new are nice to look at, but they can feel odd to walk around in – you don’t always need to have every dark corner lit. Get out to a yard sale this weekend or a vintage store and explore and bring something home – where do you think retail stores like Anthropologie get their ideas?
