Designer Loves : Bright Winter Hues from Vickerey

vickerey-blog-bright-winter-hues

Here’s my fave piece of work this week from Vickerey. This year, I’m switching things up a little & bringing in lots of handmade, earthy elements. I’m totally digging it! This collection made me think of crisp white snow, soft blue skies… a perfect time for a collection of things that bring a spark to the day.

Faves from 2013…

design-wine-sunshine-13-favorite-moments-of-2013-2

A little entry to reflect on the little things – MAN o MAN – what a wonderful year. It was crazy, we were hustlin’, but every day was sweet in its very own way. A little journey from the top to bottom, we spent our first month of 2013 on a road trip from Colorado to California (it only costs $86 to get to California from Boulder, CO in a Prius)! Emerald, (the greenish-teal version, anyway) was the color of the year and I was SO in love. Blaise flew my best friend Brittany in for my birthday (the best ever). Jayda turned 70! – We threw the dog’s birthday party of the century. We underwent a HUGE home renovation (more on that when we finish). Boulder underwent extreme flooding (not a fave moment, but a huge one none the less). The Confetti Booth was soooo much fun – so many wonderful memories with my favorite man. We went on lots of beautiful Colorado hikes. Auburn had an ammmmmmmazing football season – our back to back miracle plays will forever be with our fans. And I could squeeze in some much needed art time with my fave lap companion, Kitty. Thank you to all my friends, family, blog readers, volunteers, & fellow Auburn fans (war eagle!) who’ve made this such an amazing year. Cheers to a fabulous 2014!

Y’all – this has been one crrrrrazy year. I’m so thankful for so much right now my heart’s on overload! Just a little note to wish you all the merriest of holidays, & to share this ridiculous Christmas card we created for our friends & family. Blaise is from Hawaii, so after weeks of a terrible Colorado cold spell in December, a sunny Hawaiian holiday was all we could dream of. With love, & an enormous cheers to this beautiful year, Mele Kalikimaka! Thanks for stopping by.

Design Wine Sunshine – The Mood Board

DEsign-Wine-Sunshine-Moodboard

Design, wine, and sunshine are three of my favorite things. High five to the universe for letting them rhyme! Sure – I wanted to add animals, palm trees, family, traveling, laughter, color, warmth … but I figured in the end, I could always loop my loves back around to each other. So here we are – my little moodboard of things that inspire me and guide the visual language for this blog. I’m thinking fun, happy, colorful, design driven, relaxed, surprising, and bright. Voila!
You can find my inspirations & their lovely links on this Pinterest board 
Cheers!
