It would be an understatement to say that New York City is a great inspiration to me. Just walking down the street you’re guaranteed to be moved, see something you’ve never seen before or stumble upon a cool gallery. I love creating in this magnificent metropolis among the rich architecture, cultural landmarks and natural beauty (yes, New York does have this!). Each new discovery leaves me in awe and gets my creative juices flowing. Street art that pops up unexpectedly, grabbing your attention, is such a unique and stylish way to get inspired! As soon as I heard about the Bleeding Hearts wall by artist JGoldcrown, I knew I immediately had to pay a visit. This hip and accessible art can amp up everything in your life, from a selfie to your save-the-date. I highly recommend a trip down to Mott Street before the wall is transformed into something else!
To make your own modern statement, follow Ceci Bride Dahlia’s lead. She and her new husband posed for a hip photo op to commemorate their City Hall nuptials followed by their glam Mandarin Oriental reception. This is a trend filled with color and personality that I’m seeing a lot of. And when used in a save-the-date, it’s a fun, cool way to bring out your style while enticing your guests. So if you’re loving this look, then take a peek at my creative tips on incorporating street art into your stationery.
