Harvesting Creativity & Overcoming Setbacks

Creativity can be anything from an art piece, to a written work, to a new business idea. What ties the concept together, in all cases, is that it is an outward translation of something within ourselves. We have thoughts and images running through our heads as well as feelings and emotions reverberating through our bodies.

Inspiring Couple: Meghan Flynn & Jonathan Levitt

Meghan Flynn and Jonathan Levitt live in a beautiful home in the woods in Lincolnville, Maine, where they live predominantly off of the earth. They tend vegetable, herb and flower gardens, collect mushrooms and berries from the surrounding forests and hills, fish for mackerel and squid, and dig for clams by the ocean. Their home is a gorgeous rustic structure, and our catalog team used their property to shoot parts of The Cabin short film and catalog, including shots of the gardens and surrounding forest. Our assistant art director has been friends with Meghan since childhood, and she introduced me to this incredible couple that we knew we had to feature here on the blog. Read More

I’ve always been a summer person, and as the season begins to transition to fall, it sometimes tends to bring me down a bit.  I do love fall and everything that comes with it, but it’s the foreboding sense of winter’s chill that hangs over me.  Less sunlight can mean less energy, and the winter months are known to cause Seasonal Affective Disorder, something I definitely tend to suffer from in winter.  But this year I want to embrace fall.  Read More

Sacred Geometry: Inspired By Our Lookbook
