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!

New Month. New Home. New Goals.

New Month. New Home. New Goals.

Happy June!

Since this month is also technically my birthday season, I like to take some time to set new goals for the upcoming year. This year, I am also in the process of revamping my apartment while my boyfriend moves in. With all of these changes in mind, I thought it would be good timing to share with you some goals I have for maintaining that perfect, cozy home feeling we all love. 

1. Bring home fresh flowers every week for added life, color, and variety. 

2. Buy the best sheets I can afford for the most comfortable sleep possible.

3. Decorate with perfumed candles for a peaceful tone.

4. Maintain freedom from clutter for mental, emotional, and physical clarity. 

5. Use my kitchen as much as possible! Food = Love.

6. Invest in a cool speaker. Music and dancing give me life!
