color crush. note to self: inspiration for the next design project! blush // crimson // lime // metallic […]
i’ve been running around like crazy working up schemes for clients. this one is a recent favorite! client’s daughter is 14 years old, and she wanted a beachy feel with soft aqua’s and pink’s. i first found this adorable print by teil duncan on furbish and went kinda nuts for it – the scheme came together from there. let me know what you guys think!
now that the weather seems to have shifted towards spring, i will allow myself to write this post. spring is not only my favorite time of year in new orleans because of the weather. the colorful prints, the array of vegetables becoming available in the grocery, the sandals, swimsuits, rose wine, white and lace and scalloped shorts – it’s all so inspiring! here is a gathering of my favorite spring-time things.
i’ve had my eye on jamie meares of the ever-awesome blog i suwannee and shop owner of furbish studio. she’s been all over the internet in the past year or so with the overwhelming success of her store and design firm. she is fearless, funky, and very, very talented. the thing i love most about her style and aesthetic is that it’s the opposite of matchy-matchy. her motto is “dare to mix” – and in that regard, her interiors come off as effortlessly composed and definitely not trying too hard.
she gets it, and i like it.
whenever i’m in need of some creative juice-flowing, i hop on over to her website where i’m bound to find just the thing. here are my top ten picks from furbish studio!
although i sometimes find it hard to navigate, the treasures that can be found on etsy are really pretty amazing. hand-crafted, high-quality products (pretty much anything you could want!) are available at such reasonable prices. the other day, i came across samantha french’s page of oil paintings and prints.
