Some of Lucinda’s favorite things that influence her design and lifestyle: painting, nature, travel, and music.
IF THERE WERE NO BARRIERS OR CONSTRAINTS, WHAT PROJECT WOULD YOU WANT TO WORK ON?
I would work on a project which involved travel to different places, to learn about the different art and design styles and then incorporate them into my own work. It’s valuable to draw inspiration from other artists and new places to experiment with new styles and gain unique perspectives.
WHAT ARE YOU READING/LISTENING TO/WATCHING?
I’m currently watching Ozark on which is good, but not as good as Breaking Bad. Most recently, I read The Shining by Stephen King and I’m usually listening to either Kid Cudi, A$AP Rocky, or Cage the Elephant.
IF YOU WERE GOING TO WRITE A BOOK, WHAT WOULD IT BE ABOUT?
I don’t have any million-dollar book ideas but something that really interests me is interior and home design. I enjoy decorating spaces and looking for home decor inspiration. I am inspired by Russel Wright’s house, which is located near my hometown, where Wright incorporated natural materials such as rocks and trees into the fabric of his home. The visual harmony he created between the home’s interior and the surrounding woods is eye-opening.
