Today’s Monday Mood is inspired by my love for vintage office supplies!! Who knew grungy erasers could look so cool!? I love sharing design inspiration that is unique and full of color. This past weekend I split my time between Blacksburg, VA and Arlington. I traveled out to Virginia Tech on Friday morning to attend […]

Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a chance to experience the glorious weather this past Saturday. I spent the day in Annapolis. I caught up with one of my best friends over brunch and then we sat over a dock on the water and it was so refreshing. I feel like my skin […]

Hello friends and happy Monday! This past weekend was full of inspiration. Some of you may know that I work full time as an interior designer and run my wedding photography business on the side.

A pink inspired Monday Mood board! I spent this past weekend visiting my sister in Charlottesville. She gave Josh and I a “foodie” tour of the town on Saturday night and then we went to church on Sunday. It was nice celebrating Easter together while the rest of our fam is skiing out in Colorado!

After scrolling through my Pinterest page I noticed a similar theme. I was pining a lot of photos of jewel toned eatery banquettes. I can’t recall if these were something I was looking for at work, but they sure made a nice mood board for today’s post! My weekends are beginning to pick up again […]

Happy Monday friends! I hope you are already curled up in bed sipping on some tea and de-stressing from the manic Monday. Well, hopefully yours wasn’t manic. I’m sitting at my kitchen counter sipping on my pink smoothie ready to talk about the pink in today’s inspiration board…how fitting. Last week I sat down and […]

I’ve recently been working on challenging myself to photograph objects in the “dark”. Meaning…working with a black or super dark backdrop. Yesterday and today I’ve been creating some textured styling boards and I’m mixing up some dark colors to play with tonight. A few weeks ago I printed about 200 of these inspiration cards. Little […]

Happy Monday friends! This post was meant to be published last Monday, but I spent the entire week cuddled up in my bed with the flu! 3 days went by and I’d barely left the bedroom, it was the worst!! Wash your hands people, that sickness is killer. I stared watching Suits towards the end […]
