Why hello there! It’s our first official blog post and we are excited to share with you some of the fun design stuff we’re working on, our favorite products (from hand-painted tiles to fashion finds), and some how-to’s along the way. We’re on the hunt daily for inspiration—whether it be online, magazines, traveling, or visiting local restaurants and coffee shops… and now we’re dishing on all of it. So grab some popcorn and cozy up because it’s about to get moody in here.

Since the end of summer, we’ve been pinning a lot of images with muted pinks, rusts, goldenrods and deep blues. The moody colors, emotional down-to-earth textures, and the natural contrast of warm sun and cool air (of course with warm coffee in hand!) are all natural sources of inspiration.

One timeless trend that gets us in the fall spirit are neutral collections of art. Woods, whites, and blacks never go out of style so finding a collection of pieces in these hues that tie in the soul and style of classic art with the modern use of a minimalistic color palette instantly adds wow-factor and value to a room.
