Colors of Summer 2013

With summer just a few weeks away, I would have to say I am most excited for all of the color that is about to hit the streets!  With the warm sun beating down in the afternoons, and the cool nights out with dear friends, I can't wait to see (and wear) every bright color possible.

May First

Happy May Day all!  I designed these little May Day cards in honor of what is arguably, my favorite month.  Not only is it my birthday month, but it's also the month where the weather starts to truly turn beautiful.  Everything is in full bloom, the sun is shining bright and summer break is right around the corner.  So, dig out those spring dresses and sandals from the depths of your closet and go out and get some sun!  Enjoy the weather :)

April Showers...

My sister's bridal shower came and went, at what seemed like the speed of light! It's always sad when you're planning something for so long, and it goes by so quickly.  Although now, I have something even bigger and better to look forward to: the wedding!  Everyone showed up in their most beautiful spring dresses and the event went off without a hitch.  The flowers that my mother picked out and arranged (with some help from a friend) were in full bloom and lined the air with the sweet smell of spring.  The dessert table was so tasty, and of course, the ever-popular mimosa bar was such a fun addition to the shower.  My mother and I planned and designed the shower (although she put in a lot more hours than I...) and I think everyone, especially my sister enjoyed every moment of it!

Bridal Shower: Graphic Work

As my sister's spring bridal shower nears (two more weeks!), I am rushing to get the odds and ends pulled together.  One of my responsibilities as maid of honor has been planning the shower (although my amazing mother has done most of the planning since I am still in school and have an internship).  I have been able to do most of the graphic work for her spring bridal shower though, and here is a small preview of the most recent work, enjoy!

Lunch menu, makes me so hungry just looking at it!

Graphic Lettering

I absolutely love when large graphic letters (or words, of course) are brought into a design.  It adds such a modern and fun element to every space.  Not only can it be a creative branding tool, but it's also a neat way to bring interest into any space.  These graphics can be found in the form of anything; tiles, wood, metal, even creating large graphics with paint and a stencil can look so innovative and fresh.

Drawing the Eye Up

I often feel like ceilings are the first thing that is overlooked when a space is being designed.  Nonetheless, there is not denying that the ceiling, in many cases is one of the most important aspects of any design, something that should not be looked over carelessly.  These spaces are great examples of how beautiful ceiling design can absolutely affect the overall feel of the interior environment.

Mister Macaroon's

Although I am studying commercial interior design in school (two more months!), I also enjoy dabbling in other facets (if you will) of design.  Graphic design is something I gained interest in after a design course I took my junior year.  I like to think of myself as a (very) amateur graphic designer.  I love when I am able to incorporate both interior and graphic design into a project.  Mister Macaroon's is a project I completed this Spring.  I created a hypothetical company, and designed the interior as well as the branding.  Check out the final product!
