Really inspired by the color palettes in artist Jen Garrido's paintings. 

3 / 4

I'm really feeling this cobalt blue color in the bottom painting. I have been wanting a pair 
of pumps in this color...the search is on.

After a long day of traveling…I am finally all checked into the hotel and desperately 
trying to fall asleep! It is around 2 a.m. here and 1:15 p.m. at home!

Since we arrived at night we were able to see everything all lit up which is really beautiful, 
but I cannot wait to get outside tomorrow and explore!

Found this series of posters tonight by Joel Sadler. I like his graphic interpretations of 
all the buildings. I am off to try and get some sleep! Wish me luck!

Tomorrow I leave for Hong Kong & this is how I plan to travel in style.

You will never catch me wearing sweats at the airport...let alone...anywhere.

This brand popped up on my Pinterest feed and I was instantly drawn to it. 
Simple and clean typography gets me every time. Plus, the color palette is killer. 
Cream, blushy-pink & kraft with a pop of yellow...pretty much my dream.

So the word on the street is that I will be traveling to Hong Kong next week for work. 
Plans are not finalized yet, so I am not sure when we are departing. With this trip on the 
horizon, it has made the long hours at work this week easier to pass. I have always wanted 
to travel to Asia and I am thrilled about the chance to go...even if it's for work.

Happy Friday!

When these little beauties popped up on my instagram feed last night I almost died. 
I absolutely love everything Anna Bond paints and I am beyond excited to deck my 
phone in one of her beautiful illustrations! It will be hard to pick just one.

to make more happen this year.

Here's to 100 more!

Staring at the top left photo has really made me super excited about copper light fixtures.
We currently do not have a dinning table and eat most of our meals on the couch. 
Classy, I know. We just simply do not have floor space for it.

For now, at least I can daydream about the perfect copper light fixture for my 
imaginary dinning table. I think the Tom Dixon Copper Shade is hard to beat.

Grazing The Dieline this morning and had to stop and stare at the branding for La Distributrice, 
a small cafe in Montreal. So simple and modern with nice typography. 

Plus that coffee holder is genius! So much better than than balancing the tray. 

Happy Thursday!

Work has really been testing my limits recently and I feel like I have been running 
a marathon since October. The line "I want an easy plateau" from the Ryan Adams song 
Easy Plateau has been on repeat in mind lately. 

Creatively I am exhausted and I am hoping things will slow down in February. 
Where is the fast-foward button?

Our living is s l o w l y coming together. The furniture is about half new stuff and half 
my collage stuff. The collage stuff has got to go. Both of the couches are from Ikea and not 
that Ikea is bad but they make some tiny ass couches. A new couch is in the line up for 2013 
and it kinda has me re-thinking the whole living room to make it more functional and cohesive. 

My dream wish*list looks a little like this…

04:: Rhys Chair  |  05:: Gold Piggy Bank  |  06:: Pharmacy Floor Lamp

Wishing you a happy new year! A couple days late…but such is life. 
Took a break from the blog to enjoy the holidays with my family. We headed down to 
Florida to soak up some sun and started the new year off with a bang. So here is to 2013 
and hoping this is the year to make things happen.
