Continuing with my series of American-themed posts celebrating Memorial Day, today I’m sharing an “American Summer” collection/mood board of images I put together for a work project. One of my favorite parts of the design process is gathering inspiration. I love grouping seeming unrelated images and creating stories that speak to a theme or concept. This practice is used heavily in fashion when designers create mood boards for upcoming collections. I blogged about a few fashion week mood boards I found a while back. So get into this American Summer collection – and see more images on my Pinterest Board here. Happy Memorial Day!

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.”

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 !!
Now that it’s officially fall, I thought I’d continue in my color series of posts and write about black, all black everything. While there’s some debate if black is actually a color (technically black is the absence of color, and is therefore not a color), it’s still one of my favorites, and especially the favorite of most NY’ers. As time goes on, I’ve come to appreciate the graphic nature of simple black and white design and especially love the beauty of black on black. So let’s get back to black, and enjoy below. If you enjoy this post, be sure to follow my color board on Pinterest. Get into it!

“What a horrible thing yellow is”
To celebrate 500+ followers on Pinterest, I wanted to share some colour inspiration from some of my very own pins. I found the quote above and thought it was quite funny. Yellow is such a beautiful colour, how could someone say it’s horrible? You be the judge! And if you don’t follow me yet, follow me on Pinterest!
