Today I stumbled across Shinola’s BEAUTIFUL December inspiration board on Pinterest and it literally stopped me in my tracks. I’m totally in love with the green + neutral color palette. Also love the “greens, greys + gifting” tagline. This is how you design an elevated Holiday experience! I just want to LIVE in these photos. Over the next few days I’m going to share some holiday inspiration from some of my favorite brands, so get into the holiday spirit, and get into Shinola!

How great are these images?? I’ll take one of everything. If you’re in NYC, check out their beautiful store in NYC’s Tribeca neighborhood (dangerously close to my office) or check them out online.

& Other Stories_SoHo_NYC_5Several months ago I heard that “& Other Stories” (along with COS!) are opening in NYC’s Soho neighborhood, as part of H&M’s mission to take over NYC. I’ve followed & Other Stories on tumblr for a while now, not realizing they were soon opening here. A few days ago I heard they installed a new hoarding barricade to create anticipation for their new store opening. Yesterday I decided to take a long walk home just so I could pass by in person. On the barricade are dozens of hand-painted colored tiles. Such a simple idea turned into an beautiful art instillation. As someone working in retail store design, I think this is a really great idea. Take a look below a some of the process images & Other Posted, and if you’re in NYC check out this beauty before the store opens soon. Get into it!

Now that everyone has enjoyed the long (but not long enough!) Memorial Day weekend, I’m sharing the final America-inspired post celebrating one of my favorite color combinations: red, white and blue. While I don’t consider myself overly patriotic or “pro-American,” I do love the way these colors look together. So bold and graphic! I’m especially a sucker for anything vintage relating to Americana and politics. So get into all red, white + blue – and let’s celebrate the official start of summer with this collection of images. Get into it!

As we’re all trapped in winter’s cold embrace for (hopefully) just a few more weeks, I thought we could take another look at my favorite hue, blue.

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
― John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

Here’s hoping spring and summer come soon!

Red: the colour of love, passion, sex, Valentine’s Day and Dior lipstick, just to name a few. It’s been a while since I did one of my color posts, so for my first post of 2014, what could be more fitting than to ring in the new year with the colour of love? I also thought love was an appropriate theme b/c I’m 5 followers away from 2,500 followers on Pinterest! So I wanted to show some love for that! Also lots of love and appreciation goes out to anyone that read, scrolled or stumbled across my blog in the last year, I had my best year yet! So get into all the love, and all the red. And Happy New Year !!

Continuing in my color series of posts, today I bring you my favorite hue, blue! From an early age I’ve always loved the color and I’ve grown to love it even more as an adult. There are so many options too within the blue family: chambray, denim, indigo, Gap blue, International Klein blue, etc etc. Blue is where it’s at. Get into it!
