for those of you that follow my blog on a regular basis, then you know i love timeless, all-american style with a unique twist- white jeans, striped tees and military jackets; elegant men and beautiful women that embody effortless style; or interiors that successfully mix traditional elements like hand-painted wallpapers, tufted banquettes and swing arm lamps with the unexpected, like ikats or animal print.

Whereas my blog is more of a curated daily record, a never ending story of “chic people, glamorous places and stylish things”, my new tumblr page is simply a collection of pretty images inspiring me in this moment, right now! i hope they do the same for you!

here’s a preview of the new mark d. sikes tumblr page that i launched a few months ago- i firmly believe the world can be a better place with a few more pretty images!
