1. In Collaboration W: 70percentpure

    2 Comments



    Hello friends! I’ve got another really fun collaboration to share with you today. Back at the start of the new year I was contacted by the lovely Stephanie Duval of 70percentpure. Stephanie is a lifestyle journalist/ blogger/creative living in Geneva and she was excited to share a recent project of hers with me. Recently, Stephanie had the opportunity to work with Antwerp diamond accessory label Diamati Per Tutti to design her own capsule collection – inspired by graphic design, architecture and my minimalist style.

    She reached out to me to see if I’d be interested in a piece of jewel from her collaboration to help spread the word . With a shared mentality that is “less is more”, I was immediately drawn to these beautiful geometric pieces and eager to help spread the word.  Watch a fun video from the shoot.

    I’ve got another new series for you this year and I’m really excited about it. Over the past year, this little blog has grown and grown. We’re still itty bitty, but a bigger kind of itty bitty  and that means some exciting changes have taken place. In 2014 I hope to be able to share more of my favorite brands with you. There are so many amazing makers, craftsman, crafters, and shakers out there and I’m just dying to share my favorites with you.

    I’m calling this new post series “In Collaboration W.” because I’ll be collaborating with my favorite brands to share their story and my love for what they are doing. First up is one of my more recent clients,  Commodity Goods!

    First of all, a MAJOR thank you to West Elm for featuring our most recent Branding Backwards post of ours on their blog! That was a majorly cool surprise. Anyway, on to the next feauturing one of my favorite food blogs, Spoon Fork Bacon. I’m a big fan of theirs for two reasons. One, they have AWESOME / quriky branding. I mean, check out that pig. Fun, right?? And two, they have extremely unique recipes that never fail to make my mouth water.

    Remember to stop by my blog to see what Cassie is cooking up!! Something good, I bet.

    I thought I would keep things a little more neutral this week for Branding Backwards since the last post was SO colorful. But of course, I managed to find a brand that uses pops of color extremely well. West Elm, that is. One of my favorite things about walking through this store is all of the neutral + modern-ness going on with a little bit of funk thrown in here and there. It’s perfect!

    3 Comments

    Today I get to share with some more photos from Jennifer of I Art U. She’s a fabulous lifestyle photographer with a really lovely eye for capturing the beauty of everyday life and the things around her. This summer, we’re doing a little photo collaboration (one topic each month) and this month the theme was favorite neighborhood in our city. Stop by her blog to see my favorite city!

    Favorite San Luis Obispo Neighborhood — Railroad District

    San Luis is a small coastal town, and when I’m home and wanting a break from work, you can find me enjoying the outdoors (beachin’ it or hiking trails), or in the Railroad District of SLO. My favorite businesses all exist within walking distance–Sally Loo’s CaféThe Yoga CentreMeze Wine Café and Market, and I enjoy the vibe of The Sanitarium, a great B&B for out-of-towners. I love the mix of styles of buildings in the area and the best thing is that they are within steps of each other. If you’re ever out this way, please come for a visit!

    I can’t believe I haven’t shared this brand with you guys yet. Castle is one of my all time favorite spots on the web for interior products + art. The funny thing is that I don’t own anything from them … yet. Gotta save those pennies!! What I love about their brand most is the color and modern simplicity of everything. They utilize simple shapes and definitely take advantage of white space.

    Putting this moodboard together was definitely fun. After all, the colors they use sure do POP in the creative world. Make sure you stop over at my blog to see what Cassie picked out this week!

    It’s been really hot around here for some time now, so I thought a little swimwear action for Branding Backwards this week would be a perfect fit. You can find Zinké’s products at a ton of shops like Anthropologie and Free People, but they’re also online too! I’m loving their simplicity with pops of colors in all the right places. Enjoy and stay cool, ya here??

    Make sure to step by my blog today to see what Cassie is cooking up!

  9. Kirsten Grove’s Insiders Tips / Week 8

    5 Comments



    Today’s week 8 of Kirsten Grove’s lovely insider’s tips. That means 4 months of loveliness!  I was feeling a bit summery this week with this week’s inspiration rooms. I loved how bright and colorful each space way.

    Room 1: “Colorful and patterned rugs pop majorly on white wood floors.  Form a collection of rugs in a bigger space to make zones in the room.”

    Room 2: “If you live in a small space, push your eating table against the wall for day to day usage to create more room.  When having a larger party over, bring it out for more seating.”

    Room 3:  “Don’t be afraid of choosing a pattern on a bigger upholstered piece.  Create or purchase a slipcover to make it less forever and more temporary.”

    If youve missed the previous weeks of tips/suggestions, click on the collaborations tab in the side bar to see more! Don’t forget to stop over at Simply Grove to see my latest color palettes!

    For this week’s branding backwards post, I was inspired by Satsuki Shibuya’s studio tour on Emmadime last week. I’ve always loved her shop’s aesthetic and thought it would be a perfect post for our series. She has a sweet + elegant brand filled with many patterns throughout her products … you can bet there’s always something interesting going on!

    Don’t forget to check out which brand Cassie picked over on my blog today!!
