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!

a healthy life.
Designers save
lives by
a life worth living."

Little Prince offers impeccable service, a thoughtful menu, and photo-worthy floor tiles to die for. Plus, if you are lucky enough to snag 1 of the 2 outdoor tables perfect for people watching, you'll be in classic Soho heaven.  



The Colombian city of Cartagena has quickly become a hot spot for international jet setters & has left me completely inspired for a South American retreat. Check out this gorgeous hotel, Casa San Agustin, designed with a luxurious take on traditional coastal decor. 



Make sure to check out Bushwick Open Studios this weekend in Brooklyn! Visit local artist studios, connect with other makers & designers, and be inspired! 


The Coveteur wrote a great piece on Sibella Court, an international interior stylist. She is one of my #girlboss inspirations! Check out the rest of the interview and home tour here



There is a huge movement in Latin America, where inspired creatives re-purpose wasted materials into well-designed, useful pieces for everyday use. These modern concrete stools were designed by a group of Argentinian architects in Buenos Aires, and are made from left over materials from local construction sites. You can check out more of their story here
