Room Inspiration

I have been L O V I N G blue and coral hues lately, and decided it was time for a room update. It is a work in progress, inspired some what by the beach, water colors and this Starbucks packaging:

I love the blues, soft brush stroke, and hint of a accent color. I started off my room with a grey and white comforter from IKEA and let the rest take shape. Check out my inspiration below. I’m still trying to decide what to put on my walls. What do you think, any suggestions?

I’m obsessed with this color palette. I recently went to Home Depot to grab some of their paint swatches just to see what I could make with them.

Featuring: Bliss & Bone

Bliss & Bone
A few months ago at The Cream event, I was fortunate enough to meet Carl + Cindy, the creative masterminds behind the unique and beautiful stationery and design agency, Bliss & Bone. Being a huge stationery fanatic (and having worked in the custom stationery industry) I was immediately drawn to their booth by their design aesthetic and individuality. They harmoniously combine the raw with the etherial, the rugged with the refined and the avant-garde with the eternal, and I have never seen anything like it. I can’t get enough of their innovative and fresh ideas, and was lucky enough to ask Cindy some questions behind her + Bliss & Bone’s creative intelligence.
1.Where does the name Bliss & Bone come from?
Bliss is the emotion. It is pure elation and joy. It represents the feminine.
Bone is the tangible. It is strength and commitment. It represents the masculine.
Bliss & Bone
2.How do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration from everything around me and pay close attention to trends in fashion, art and interiors.
3.When starting a new project, what is your creative process?
I typically start with an inspiration board whether we are working on wedding invitations or a website. It really helps to set the tone and communicate a starting point to the client. It’s a great conversation starter to get us headed in the right direction.

From there the process varies slightly depending on the product but I dive head first into design and go back and forth with rounds until everyone is thrilled.
Bliss & Bone
4.What is the most unique invitation that you have created/your most favorite?
That’s a tough one. I try to make each invitation unique and approach each project with the question, what can I do differently this time?

My favorite is typically the most recent project since it’s where my heads at in the moment. Once I move on, I try to create work that is just as exciting as the last.

5.How do you/Bliss & Bone stay organized?
We are constantly working on this and finding ways to improve as we grow. Internally we have a lot of systems and processes in place and utilize items like dry erase boards with schedules, projects status and progress. Individually we all use a project management program called Asana that allows us to track our personal tasks and manage work flow.

It’s a work in progress and fortunately I have a really good memory when it comes to this stuff 🙂
Bliss & Bone
6.What is your motto, or how do you stay calm + positive under stress?
Great questions since I’m not sure I have one. Personally, I stay calm and positive as long as I’m organized. I like to talk about the next day, what is on everyone’s to do list, and how it’s going to get done. If I feel that everything is in its place then I can relax.
Bliss & Bone
Special thanks to Cindy for taking the time to answer these questions. Photos via Bliss & Bone and here.

Interior Inspiration

Studio Oink
Studio Oink is an interior design, photo styling + set design studio run by Lea Korzeczek and Matthias Hiller and based in Germany. Their work is minimal yet inviting, playful yet functional, + modern yet simple. The use of white in the space, furniture or photograph is complimented by a warm element, such as a ceramics, flowers or well placed art piece. Simultaneously evoking cool and calm emotions with warm and open, I wouldn’t mind jumping into any of these photos and staying for a while.

Alt. Summit Recap//Font Friday

Hi All! Happy Friday. Today, I am guest posting on Squirrelly Minds, showcasing five (yes, FIVE) fonts and designs. Head on over to her site and check those out! Tan + I met at Alt. Summit a few weeks back, and I am so happy we did. I haven’t been able to verbalize the experience I had at Alt. That happened to me in January as well. It is 3 of the best, most amazing days, surrounded by the most wonderful and creative individuals. Check out my summary below. It is mostly visual, with a few tidbits here and there.
Alt Summit Recap
I attended my first Alt Summit in January of this year, not knowing a single person. I think that was the best decision I have made to date. I love trying new things, going on adventures and putting myself in new places. Within fifteen minutes of walking in the door at the Grand America, I had made two friends that, to this day, I still talk to at least four times a week. Everyone had said before going to Alt to go with a purpose, intention or goal you wanted to accomplish. As I am still new to this blogging world, I went with the goal of wanting to make new, inspiring and positive friends who I could bounce ideas off of, connect with and get creative with. I totally OWNED that goal, and found some of the most amazing, genuine, kind and inspiring individuals (shout out to my Alt. Tribe!) that I know I will be friends with for a LONG time. This time around in June, about half of my Alt. Tribe came back, and we added some new friends to the mix. My goal for this summit was still to meet and make wonderful and positive connections, but also to focus on where I see my blog and creative endeavors going. I also attended as a speaker, discussing Photoshop + Illustrator for Bloggers. Essentially, I took what I learned in four years of design school, and my three years in the real world and condensed it into an hour and a half class. I love working with bloggers for their design needs, so teaching them basic design skills was a treat. I cannot say enough amazing things about Alt Summit. If you are on the fence about going, COME. You never know what you will learn, what idea will be birthed, or what amazing new friend you will meet. My vision for my blog and freelance design has become clearer, and I can’t wait to share with you all what I have in store. I believe that taking risks, and putting yourself in a new environment helps an individual grow immensely, learn about themselves and find out what they want. I walked in with a smile on my face and left with the biggest grin. Check out some photos below to see the rest of my time in Salt Lake City.
