The Inspired Home: Nests of Creatives
This stunning 208-page book provides an intimate look at the interiors that inspire as well as reflect the creative mind. Compiled by the New York stylist Kim Ficaro and West Coast designer Todd Nickey, it documents the nesting behavior of 17 widely scattered creative forces. Moby's art-filled Hollywood hills residence is featured, as is the Amagansett getaway of producer-designer duo Victor and Athena Calderone. Among our personal favorites, and our reason for choosing this book as an Inspired Find, are three Danish dwellings: a Baltic Sea houseboat inhabited by fashion force Mads Nørgaard and his family, the Copenhagen apartment of designer Leif Sigersen, and the Danish country house of the book's photographer, Ditte Isager. In fact, Ditte's work is so inspiring that we asked her to shoot all the images for Horizont, our book that launched the Spring/Summer 2014 and set the tone for the new Skagen aesthetic.
