While most people simply admire old photos, Irina Werning is more interested in how people would look and feel if they were to reenact them today. Several years ago, she started to ask people to go back to their past and recreate a moment in time – even down to the exact body positions and facial expressions! I’m so impressed that I am inspired to recreate one of my childhood images . . .
It’s always fascinating to see how much art can reveal about one’s personality and character. I’m inspired by co-founder and creative director of Grey Area Kyle DeWoody‘s eclectic and seemingly effortless mix of art in her Greenwich Village apartment.

After it was first created in 1978 for the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara, the Proust armchair became a historic and iconic symbol of twentieth century furniture design. Just a couple of years ago, designer Alessandro Mendini helped design Proust Geometrica for Cappellini – an explosive and colorful version of the original. I think you either love it or hate it . . . what do you think?
