Inspiration Corner: The Brooklyn Museum and Quiet Moments

November is here and chillingly blowing by. Temperatures are dropping rapidly, layers are being piled on and diverse headwear can be seen everywhere. I cannot believe I leave for the west coast in less than a month! My time in New York has been incredible and enriching thus far. I have been taking many photographs over the past weeks, so here is a round up of some from the Brooklyn Museum and other various quiet moments from Brooklyn to Manhattan. Enjoy and make sure to stay tuned for my profile on the wonderful artist and designer, Joey Korein, which we will be posting in the next few weeks!
