I always like to support other businesses in the field, even though they might be competition. The design world is filled with tons of talent and there is enough to go around, that’s for sure.

Interior Palettes: A Fresh Workspace


, , , , , , , , ,

I think it’s important to have a workspace you love and one that reflects your style and personality. This one right here is a nice example of what a clean and organized space can look like and I just love how modern and it is too. A neutral earthy palette is the foundation for the toned down pops of color, allowing them to shine. The room is weighted down successfully by the darker cool hues and the fun patterns and artwork add so much visual interest, without being too busy. The white walls and desk help to keep the overall space clean and fresh. I wouldn’t mind working in here every now and then. Would you?

Be About Being Better


, , , , , , , , , ,

When you had a bad day and you are super stressed and have no patience left and find a way to blame yourself because you are supposed to make sure everything is going as planned and find solutions and fix all that isn’t working but the truth is you’re only human and need to give yourself a break.

There are times when you just need to be about being better to yourself. And it’s in those darker moments when you need it most.

Pause. Breathe. Let go. Rest.
My recipe for being better.
