Before I could even read a book, music was my first love. As a designer, I draw a lot of inspiration from the sounds of music, as it compliments aesthetically inspiring pieces in a way nothing else can. Playing the piano was my first creative expression as a tiny 5 year old stretching to reach the keys on my parent’s hand-me down upright. Ever since then, piano heavy music has always drawn me in. A few years ago, I came across the work of Ingrid Michaelson, an indie artist who shot to fame when the popular show Grey’s Anatomy featured a few of her songs. After listening to her album “Girls and Boys” I knew she was so much more than a one-hit wonder and an amazingly talented songwriting and pianist. I connected with her vulnerable free spirit immediately and still follow her music today!
Surely, Ingrid’s “nest” is a reflection of her vintage modern style. This CB2 lounge is both modern & multi-functional; she can lounge on it as she’s writing her latest song or use it as a sofa when she’s having a jam session. We know from her “Girls and Boys” album cover that she loves a little whimsy, so I thought the fawn mug would be perfect for her tea as she pampers her voice. The pillow & the set of cannisters are reflections of her affinity for vintage, but available to all through Urban Outfitters and Modcloth.com. I love the black plastic frames she’s rocking in her latest promo shots too! Please check out her latest album, “Everyday” and the rest of her fantastic albums. Happy nesting!
