My 2015 mantra: Enlighten & Enlightened

Enlighten- to give greater knowledge and understanding about a subject. Synonyms: inform, make aware, illuminate
Enlightened- having or showing a rational, modern, and well-informed outlook. Synonyms: well informed, aware, open-minded, knowledgable, wise. 

I feel reinvigorated with a new inspiration for learning and growing. Knowledge brings wisdom and for me a sense of joy. The more I see, the more I am inspired to seek out more knowledge which leads to growth. I love sharing freely, hoping what I find unique or inspirational will touch others in some capacity.

In that vain, one of my first discoveries of the new year is Gabriel Scott. For obvious reasons, I source furnishings during the day. However, one evening on my way home from dinner, I was moved by their gorgeous lighting illuminating their Broome Street storefront. Gabriel Kakon and Scott Richler are two of my new favorite designers producing innovative lighting and furniture at reasonable prices. Here are a few of my choice pieces from their collection.
