Interior Palettes: Mint and Brown


, , , , , , , ,

This kitchen is cozy, inviting, and bright and thanks to the pairing of mint and brown, its a beautiful space to be in. The wood floors, beams, and island really bring in texture and warmth. While the white cabinets and shelves help it stay clean and bright. I love the mint as well, and how it allows the light to reflect even more. This color combination is fresh and modern, but at the same time allows various styles to shine. Here, a little bit of country and industrial come hand in hand nicely.

Minted Holiday Photo Card Challenge 2017


, , , , ,

It’s pretty hard to get in the holiday spirit when you’ve been waiting for spring to arrive and it’s finally here, but I managed to create a pretty nice collection for the annualĀ challenge this year. My focus was texture, patterns, and bold type. I had a lot of fun designing these festive beauties, even though it was a little stressful getting a good amount in. Voting is now open! You can view all my submissions below and if you click on each, it will take you to the rating page. Thank you!

Minted Greeting Card Challenge


, , , , , ,

I have been pretty busy lately, between planning my son’s 1st birthday party, work, and submitting designs to the Minted Holiday Challenge, there has almost no time for anything else. But I was able to get 2 submissions into the first greeting card challenge, which is pretty exciting. I wish I could have done more, but I was seriously burned out. Below are the 2 cards I created. Crossing fingers! Enjoy!

Interior Palettes: Modern Zen


, , , , , ,

Since the season has changed, it’s all about getting outside and enjoying the beautiful weather. I wanted to share some patio inspiration to help with ideas on how to freshen up and design your outdoor space. This is what I call Modern Zen. Relaxed and comfy, with a focus on geometric shapes and neutral hues. I just love how the soft grays and browns offset the earthy greens. This allows nature to really shine. And the nice pops of yellow aren’t too bright, yet bring a freshness to the overall look. You would definitely find me here everyday.
