Traveling is one of my greatest sources of inspiration. It awakens creative parts of my brain that seem inactive when I'm living by routine. Back in the Spring I traveled to Europe and had the opportunity to meet London based designer, Cassandra Ellis. Cassandra runs an interior design company that creates furniture and homewares. Her pieces are neither minimalist nor traditional, but quiet, simple, and well detailed.
Cassandra was sweet enough to welcome Gillian Stevens and I into her home to photograph and hear more about her business and approach to design. For Cassandra, design is about telling a story around people and place and her home studio is a beautiful reflection of those values. Her designs are timeless and thoughtful and each piece is created to be part of a greater life story.
