i have been watching a lot of documentaries lately. i like to think that watching them makes me smarter:) last week i watched a documentary documenting the life of charles and ray eames, famous for the mid-century modern 'eames chair'.

not only did i learn a lot from watching this movie, but even more importantly, i was inspired. ray and charles had a phenomenal relationship, sharpening eachother in their craft and creating world-changing art together.

the eames were surrounded by an amazing team of artists and designers who spent their day in a sort of 'warhol factory,' brainstorming and working together to make their dreams a reality. but one of the most amazing things the eames created had to be their own house. can you say dream house?

what is a movie that you have been inspired by lately?
