work in progress… 11.12.2012

Among lots of other fun projects, we’re also hard at work designing the next series of art prints for our etsy shop! This weekend we had a little time to play with some good old fashioned paint – how gorgeous is Carrie’s hand-lettering?! We can’t wait to finalize the design and share these with you….but for now….a few shots of our work in progress.

art & design: mid-century album & book covers 02.28.2012

>

We’re always suckers for mid-century homes and furniture, but the graphic design of that era is also at the top of our list so we fell head over heels when we stumbled upon New Documents, an etsy shop that specializes in mid-20th century modern album and book covers! Thinking one of these might be a nice addition to a gallery wall, what do you think?

    >Thanks for the link and kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed the shop — New Documents is definitely a labor of love for me. I have pieces framed and hung in my home and studio. They look great and provide unlimited inspiration!

on the lookout: throw pillows 01.09.2012

>

Decorative pillows are a great way to give a burst of energy to  a room without spending a lot. I found myself gravitating towards neutrals and saturated warm colors. There are so many fun graphic and global prints out there right now. Decisions…
links (left to right, top to bottom): Gray Suzani with Fuschia Applique Lumbar Pillow, Comalapa Brocade Pillow (the purchase of this pillow, along with many other handmade items from non-profit site, Mercado Global, helps Guatemalan women distribute their goods and provide for their families), Brasilia Diamonds Pillow, Vivacious Embroidered Pillow in pink, Set of Two Decorative Pillow Covers in Yellow Chevron, Chelsea Stripe Major Brown Pillow, Linen Stripe with Red Pillow, Hot Pink Stripe Pillow
