On the Red Couch with DIY Doyenne Brit Morin

Inside Flipboard / April 3, 2013

With Brit + Co, a company devoted to simple and beautiful ways to live a more creative life, Brit Morin believes she’s tapping into a “biological urge” we all have to create…and to create a better life.

But Morin is also hyper-aware that most of us don’t have the time to do this efficiently, so she specializes in savvy shortcuts that take 30 minutes or less. She’s also an evangelizer of the technology—apps, gadgets, tips and tricks—that can help.

We sat down with her not too long ago and asked about her favorite stuff: her current obsessions (3D printing), favorite places to shop (Etsy, Anthropologie, J Crew, Quirky), must-read print magazines (Dwell, Elle Decor, Wallpaper), productivity tips (keep a list of three things to accomplish every day), analog habits (journaling), and more.

Since the interview, Morin participated in our beta curator program, where she was among the first people to create magazines using Flipboard 2.0. We’re featuring her DIY Daily magazine now in our Living category. Check it out, then tap on the section name to see everything Morin is curating on Flipboard.
