What inspires You?

Currently listening to *Sex and Candy by Marcy Playground*

Creative people get inspiration from anything and everything. I'm currently inspired by 90's grunge music. I love the laid back vibe with the I don't give a shit attitude. Bands like Pearl Jam and Nirvana have grunge recording features with the same qualities that I'm craving in my designs.  

Below is a the description by Music Genome Project that identifies attributes of Grunge Music.

                 Music                                                   Design

1)Subtle use of vocal harmony                     1) Subtle harmony in color or style 

2)mild rhythmic syncopation                         2)Rhythm and Balance

3)extensive vamping                                     3)a little bit of repurposed furniture 

4)mixed minor& major key tonality                4)Eclectic mix of styles

5)vocal-centric aesthetic                           5)EccentricAesthetics(Unconventional

                                                                          and Slightly Strange)                                      

6)dirty electric guitar solo                              6)an unexpected design element

7)emotional male lead vocal performance    7)somewhat masculine style  

8)an unintelligible vocal delivery                    8)Don't even try to figure it out

I hope hope you follow where I'm going with this. I graduated high school in 1991 so grunge was part of pop culture in my youth. That being said, (now you know how young I am) I have always been drawn to good design BUT wanted a not so fussy feel. You know-not too perfect look. 

Grunge style to me is comfortable yet well thought out. The point is to "look" like you don't give a shit but in reality we all care to a certain extent. "I woke up this." Urban Dictionary defines grunge style being loosely tied with rock and punk style but stands as its own. Grunge design to me is non conforming. I like mixing Clean Urban Loft with Vintage, and Unordinary Designs that are like oxymorans. Like an unsophisticated cosmopolitan girl. Think Ivanka Trump partying with Courtney Love.
