I’m always inspired when I visit renowned interior designer @darrylcarterdesign’s studio and shop. Every inch of the building is thoughtfully designed and it’s a true D.C. gem.

Its hard to choose just one museum as my favorite in D.C. — but if I had to choose one that I could visit to over and over, it would be the @hirshhorn.

@chaiadc tacos, a favorite stop at the farmer’s market, just opened their first brick and mortar in Georgetown. Hands-down, some of the best tacos in town.

@eathalsadc opened last year and it’s definitely a new favorite. Everything from the food to the atmosphere are perfection.

My go-to shop for gifts and goods for the home is @saltandsundry. Founder and creative director, @amandamc116, has an amazing eye and beautifully curates her shops.

To break up my days I’m often work in coffee shops and the coffee scene in D.C. is getting to be really good. @maketto1351 is part of my regular rotation — the design of the space is inspiring and the food is pretty great, too.

I love seeing the creative scene in D.C. grow. @cherryblossomcreativehq just recently opened a new studio and shop which has a great selection of paper goods that are otherwise hard to find in D.C.

Almost very Sunday morning I visit the @freshfarmmarkets Farmer’s market to stock up and visit some of my favorite local businesses like @gordyspicklejar and @wollamgardens.
