Spring Color Palette

Alright, I know, it’s a little early. But what better way to start off the week than with some cheerful color inspiration?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’d love this gorgeous wallpaper from Anthropologie in my ugly office, maybe with some cozy flannel. Whaddya think, wallpaper: easier than painting?

Can’t wait to be outside, back in the mountains, and with a sunhat like hers. Until then, Happy Monday, and stay warm!

Why I worship Graphic Designers

I need to buy the Bible of graphic design. Is there such a thing? I’d love to learn, but my school schedule is too full of things like Genetic Biology and General Chemistry to do fun things like art.

Until I find that magical book, I will enlist the help of talented graphic designers to make my world pretty. Gabrielle of Lacquerbird Wireworks is both a saint AND multi-talented. When I saw her gorgeous banner design on her shop (see the link above), I had to beg for her assistance. You can beg for her assistance, too, if you find her on Etsy shop above, or at her Flickr page.

The before, my clunky, rather frumpy own banner…

And voila, Gabrielle’s GORGEOUS makeover after:

I can’t believe how much this design makes me like the color pink! (It looks even better in the shop!) As I asked Gabrielle after it was done… “When did I become such a girlie girl?”

If you are among one of the chosen ones who can work this magic: kudos to you. Now show me your secrets.
