Hi, I'm Maia.

(Pronounced Maya)

I'm a visually obsessed, native New Yorker, who's always searching for the coolest in design, food & travel. 

Over the last 5 years, I left a well established career in healthcare to pursue my passion for design and writing.  This website is my little piece of inspiration, thoughts & adventures as I seek out the most creative spaces  & experiences around the world.

I hope you find this inspiring & share with me what inspires you as well! I'd love to hear from you. Thank you for visiting!

xx,

Maia

Design 

Dwell Magazine launched their first collection with Target & it is the super chic, affordable home line of your dreams. 


Home

The home of menswear designer Robert Geller,  via the Coveteur, is the perfect blend of sophistication and masculinity. A win - win for me.

I pretty much live for the beauty at Le Cou Cou daily.  I just cant get enough! 


Travel

Everyone's been talking about Portugal lately and, yes, it is worth all the hype. Check out the swoon worthy views from the beautiful L'and Vineyard Resort in Alentejo. 


Cool 

Have you heard of Hiplet? It's a blend of ballet and hip hop that is sweeping across dance schools around the nation! Check out the rest of these gorgeous photos on Refinery29
