the inspiration

Agnes Martin’s work inspires me again and again. I love her modest and soulful repetition of patterns. “Agnes Martin” by D.A.P./Tate $55 artbook.com

A cerulean picnic essential.

This throw pillow is casual and chic.

One of my favorite designs from my Grids and Swirls collection, which is all about minimal beauty.

I wear these with a T-shirt and jeans all day and then dress them up with a simple caftan at night. Larco necklace, $390, and bracelet, $265 crescionicollection.com

A well-made sun hat is the perfect accessory for a spring day in Los Angeles. Pinch panama hat in nude $272 welcometoclyde.com
