Welcome to another edition of Friday Afternoon my friends – today I’ll be discussing a few of my favorite design aesthetics: simple, clean, and minimal.
When I was going to school and just discovering my design sea legs, the handwriting I found myself doing and falling back on again and again was just some good, strong, simple lines. Whether it was a garment or a knit, I liked my designs to have solid foundations and give them a twist – maybe it’s a slit in the back, or an asymmetrical hem, or a tuck and a pinch here and there. Tiny details, that wouldn’t otherwise be very meaningful unless it was on a prepped blank canvas.
So for today, I’ve curated a collection of images below that represent little pieces of what goes on in my head when I think of aesthetics and what lights up my brain’s visual pleasure center, broken down into several categories. All images are from my Pinterest board, with a link to it down below.
Ah, my bread and butter. Fashion that’s modern and timeless from designers and mass retailers alike. Over sized fits, long length lines, unusual drapes – all with a strong vision of foundation. Click for zoom.
No exception when it comes to shoe and bags; with the added benefit of being mostly timeless, these pieces below are on my wishlist. Click for zoom.
Impossibly neat and clean, what my home will never be but I’ll never stop striving for this to be my digs. Peaceful, simple, and beautiful space. Click for zoom.
Delicate jewelry pieces are the foundations to any look; it’s the necessary balance for statement pieces, and perfectly lovely to layer on their own. And of course, the aesthetics I aim for with my own little TYPENU Co. Click for zoom.
What I call nest objects – interiors aren’t complete without aesthetically similar knick knacks to go in it. Smooth ceramics, metallic copper, and elegant glass. Click to zoom.
I think when this clean white Scandinavian trend started to blow up, the creative part of me just about died from excitement. There’s also the added benefit of everything naturally going pretty monochrome, and you know me and those shades of grey!!

That concludes our Friday afternoon ladies and gentlemen, looking forward to the weekend! But before you go, talk to me about your favorite visual aesthetic below!
