1. recreate it / 02

    4 Comments

    Hey everyone, Bre here! First of all – thank you so much for all of the great feedback Cassie and I both received last week for our initial “recreate it” post. It was great to hear our collaboration was interesting and useful. Let’s just say, it’s here to stay!

    I chose a spread from Collected Mag this week, which always uses such simple and gorgeous layouts. The reason I chose it was because they took some fun risks! Layering text on top of your photography is always a challenge – especially when you’re trying to make sure something is legible. I chose to use a transparent block of color (brown) to help make sure everything was easy to read. Now it’s your turn to try. Plus, both of the fonts I picked out are FREE, so make sure to go get em’!

    Don’t forget to head on over to moxee for Cassie’s recreate it post!

  3. Therese Sennerholt Prints

    I was hopping from one Swedish blog to another when I came across the prints of Terese Sennerholt. I remember seeing one of the prints (the one with the big brown leather couch) spring up on Pinterest once, but was never able to track the image back to its original source. Well, hooray!!!! I’ve found her and boy am I glad.

    The messages are simple, the designs are straightforward and they sure do look great clustered together. Oh, did I mention that she ships internationally for all of us drooling over here in the US.

    *All interior shots above were photographed by Henrik Bonnevier and the stylist was Lotta Agaton

     

     

    Stop by later today for a Print GIVEAWAY with Design Attractor! Can you tell I’m in a print mood today?

  4. In Their Home // Maria Emb

    8 Comments





    Maria, the engineering student/blogger of Maria Emb showcases sneak peeks from inside her home as well as food photography and other interior design inspiration. Her blog has become one of my favorites because she is constantly pumping out original content, and did I mention her design sense is amazing. Her home looks warm and cozy, but keeps simplicity at its core. Every item in the space works well with one another and the color palette or each room is one I envy. I’d also die for her stoneware collection!

    Please stop by HER BLOG and jump from one post to the next. I know you won’t be disappointed!

Today she spends the majority of there time snapping photos of interior spaces and still life. Line’s work has been popping up in my life here and there, but I never knew she had a blog until just recently. Go explore her little space of the internet.

    Hi guys! I’m excited to announce a new design collaboration happening here every Wednesday with Bre of MOXEE. The two of us have really “hit it off” in the terms of designer-to-designer relationships, and we felt like it would be fun to share some design insights with you. We could go on and on about what typefaces we drool over or what design websites keep us glued for hours, but that would only bore you over time. Instead, every Wednesday we are going to share 2 Recreate It posts (one here on my blog and one over on her blog) that will hopefully help you translate those pretty magazines spreads you see into something more tangible. Hey! You may even get some new blog post layout ideas from it. Hope you enjoy this new feature as much as the both of us. Cheers!
