1. Veda News: We’re Back (from Ms. to Mrs.)



    Hello dear loyal Veda House readers. I’m back from my month long wedding hiatus and am so thankful that so many of you stopped by the blog while I was away. I hope you enjoyed the guest bloggers who were generous enough to provide amazing content.

    I’ll be sharing more about the wedding and honeymoon in posts to come, but wanted to stop in and say “hi” while a take a little while to regroup and get back into the swing of a normal work week. The mister and I are currently packing up all our belongings and will be making the move to Denver in about a week. Lots of transitions happening, but we couldn’t be more excited.

    Aren’t all the palms pretty? All the photos above are from our wedding location and trip in Tulum Mexico. One thing I noticed while away is that my love (maybe obsession) for tropical plants is VERY strong these days. I’ve always been a die-hard beach fan, but I had no idea how overwhelming I loved me some palms….and agave…and cactus…all of it. I definitely documented my palm love on Instagram while traveling. You can see some snippets from our travels in the link below.

  2. Studio Hours: w/ Frida (Guest Post)



    A few day to day insights from Frida Salomonsson of Vardagsbrus

    Frida is a Photographer and Visual Storyteller


    I try as much as possible to have a very natural working process. I can start editing something and realize that I like the person’s eye color, so I save it and use that tone to something else, which makes me remember that I need to change the color of something I did yesterday. To switch between different projects and ideas to let one lead to the other, thats a luxury. I do however try to work it out with my planned “unplanned” calendar. It´s chaotic but never boring! – FRIDA

    Hi Guys! Here’s another wardrobe item that I’ve brought with me on my honeymoon. It’s a super cozy patterned jumpsuit WITH POCKETS! In my opinion nothing is better than something with pockets. I also added these amazingly beautiful brass jewelry pieces from Rose & Fitzgerald to my collection. Both pieces are unique, one of a kind pieces that were handmade by artisans in Uganda. Rose & Fitzgerald has quickly become one of my favorite online shops that are also “doing good” in the handmade artisan community. You can read more about them here.

  5. Studio Hours – w/ Scout & Catalogue (Guest Post)

    A few day to day insights from Bre of Scout & Catalogue

    Bre is a small handmade shop owner specializing in custom-dyed leather goods & textiles.


    Usually a day in the studio starts with an extra large coffee from the coffee shop downstairs. Once I have coffee in hand, I spend the first few hours in the morning answering emails and doing any of the admin work that comes with running a small business.

    The studio building cat, Bruce Wayne, always stops by (he knows how to open the door) and lounges in sun puddles while I’m at my desk. Around 11 I switch over to production which can mean anything from setting up dye pots to cutting and stamping leather.

    Some days I have interns come in to help out since there never seems to be enough hours in the day. I leave work around 6 or 7 and often run by the post office on my way home (I spend so much time/money at the post office that they send me a Christmas card every year!).

    I often do more admin work when I get home which is a habit I’m trying to break. I’ve learned the hard way that working too much just leads to burn out so am now trying to spend more time doing things with friends and family after a long work day…

    Hi Guys! I hope you have been enjoying the guest posts while I’ve been away! I’ve had a lot of fun sharing some new blogs/ talent with you and there is more to come! Until then, today I wanted to share with you a few more items I bought for the trip to the tropics. I knew I needed lightweight flowy tops and of course, hats! This hat has been a lifesaver while in the sun :)


    Worn / embroidered cream top from Free People, high waisted denim jeans (I think H&M…), hat from J Crew, flats are vintage (thrift store find)

  8. Worn: w/ Madelynn of Wide Eyed Legless (Guest Post)



    A new wardrobe staple with Maddie of  Wide Eyed Legless

    Maddie is a stylist and wardrobe consultant living in Minneapolis, MN.


    “Lately I have been craving more structure to my wardrobe, so when I found this white jumper and marble print skirt at Zara I knew they were just the pieces I need to give my wardrobe a little chic boost. I love how they are both incredibly minimal but have unexpected modern touches. Like the white jumper being slightly longer in front and higher in the back. Paired here with round 60s inspired white sunglasses and chunky Swedish Hasbeens boots and you have my easy go to spring and summer outfit. ” – Maddie

  9. Recent Work: Branding for The Citizenry (sneak peek)


    Hello lovely Thursday blog readers. I get to share something with you that I’ve just been bursting at the seams to talk about. At the end of last year, I was approached by Carly Nance, on of the co-founders of the soon to be launched The Citizenry brand. We spoke on the phone for hours those first few weeks, gushing over minimalist interior design, the sprit of travel and the ups and downs of running your own business. We connected like two peas in a pod. Soon I would find out that her business partner Rachel was just as giddy about everything as we were.

  10. Studio Hours: Our Bedroom Tour


    Stopping in today to share a few photos of our bedroom. I realized that with the move coming up I should probably share a few of my favorite aspects of our current bedroom before I have to box everything up.

    I kind of feel like our bedroom has been the most neglected room in the house (poor guy). We don’t really “hang out” in there and it’s seem more as a place to sleep and store clothes. There’s usually piles of laundry scattered around and most certainly an unmade bed. In the new house, the bedroom is getting bumped up on the priority list ;)


    ( Guest Room, Living Room, Dining Room )

    ** A few key items shown in our room are from the home decor brand called The Citizenry. Over the past 9 months, I’ve been working alongside The Citizenry’s co-founders, Carly Nance & Rachel Bentley to bring their start-up visions to life. I’ll be sharing more on this on-going project next week!
    The Citizenry items included: throw pillows, area rug, blanket
