Summer is officially here! Very hard to contain my excitement, I'm a big fan of the change in seasons, it always offers a fresh perspective for the coming months. Whether it be personal goals, new adventures, a new wardrobe, or just the feeling of "new" 4 times a year - it's a simple thing in life that makes me happy. Since we're officially in the summer solstice, I wanted to brighten up your day with inspiration around one of my favorite new design trends - color blocking. Color blocking can be applied to just about anything in the design world - fashion, home decor, stationery, jewelry - so why not in a modern soiree as well? What a current style to outfit your bridesmaids in or design stationery after? Go with a more subtle approach through your accessories or the floral design you choose - but either way its a lively, bold, and stylish statement on your big day. Enjoy these gorgeous hues and your first weekend of summer!
Yes, St. Patty's day is only a week away, but I wasn't even thinking of it when I first started collecting imagery for today's post. Just a happy chance. I was walking my pup, Simba, today and was captured by how vivid the greenery is right now. Maybe it's the short alternate doses of rain and sun we've been getting, but everything is so green. I just had to create a board around it. Set against white, green looks exceptionally fresh for Spring. And, of course, I just had to throw a nod to St. Patty's day with this fabulous Irish San Francisco trolly. Are you feeling lucky yet?
Christy and I are working on a fun project over the next couple of months, and I've been gathering inspiration to come up with the overall design concept. So here's a sneak peak of what's to come! It's all the way preppy, bright and gingham. Can you guess what we are working on?
Valentine's Day is just around the corner... the perfect excuse to finally create a board inspired by this gorgeous red faux fur coat. What a great look for a bride, right?! It's been sitting in my files for a while now, just waiting for this lovely opportunity. Paired with cream, the duo walk a fine line between sultry and sweet. Aren't we all a bit of both anyway?
Joie de vivre!
