Easy Breezy

Don't you just love an easy outfit?  Loose dress, clutch and converse - that's all you need to look this effortless.  And flowers don't hurt, of course!

I wish this was my desk this week.  It's been a rough one.  Simplicity is needed.

Orange you glad it's summer?


I am so glad it's summer, but I can't believe it's half way over.  What did I do the whole first half?  I still have some projects and trips I want to get done.  Ehh!  Oh well, I still have a month and a half to have a go at it so there's no stopping me now.  I am going to get motivated and knock out all I want to get done, but there's just one problem . . . I'm so tired!  Isn't summer a time of rest and relaxation, or is that just a thing of our school days past?  (It's tempting to become a teacher.)  Why can't I just lay on a beach somewhere for the next month?  I just know that would make me so very productive once I got back.  Ha - or I might just be wishing I was back there!  Yeah, probably the latter.

Color Craze

In the past I used to be afraid to use so much color, but lately I have been bolder with my choices.  I want strong rich colors (like this purple scheme above) but also something that is easy and comfortable. 

I am still torn between all white and all color, but if you would make me decide today, I would have to go with all color.  What about you?

Type Obsessed

I have been obsessing over pretty type faces lately.  I don't know if I am just being exposed to type more often or if I am maturing into a true type-lover.  (Either/or, but most likely both are legit.)  They are inspiring me to learn more about graphic design and dig deep into type. 

Weird?  Or is it just natural for your interests to evolve?

Prints in the Bedroom

I am a strong devotee to the white bed - white sheets, white quilts, white everything.  But lately I have been drawn to some patterns in the bedroom - some quirky patterns!  You know you need a change every once in a while and patterns add a little spark to everything.

How amazing is that headboard?  And that print on the bedding?  And those flowers compliment everything in the room!  Print perfection in my book and go figure it's from lonny.  They know how to do it!
