We’re off and running with the Earnest Home Spring Summer 2015 collection!  My dream with launching the new site was to have the opportunity to merge my work of designing and producing my product line into the daily blog, since it’s a huge chunk of what dominates not only my time, but also my goals!  I want to share with you my workflow for the collections I design, which starts out with inspiration and color direction.  Let me share my thoughts on this season and how I begin creating a cohesive plan.

For the life of me I couldn’t tell you why I’m obsessed with going to Stockholm, I just am.  I know nothing of the city, have no friends there, and have no clue what I would do there.  I just have a strange desire to go and check it out.

Based on some big things I’ve got going around in my neck of the woods (the big adventure for one (which I know I told you guys I was going to spill this week, but the real date is Monday, I promise)), I don’t think I’m be making it to Stockholm anytime soon.  I am going to be content creeping around Swedish apartments on the internet in the meantime.

This one has got all of the things that attract me to a space – minimal decorating, neutral colors, and lots of light.

I love all of the fun black and white wallpaper too, it does a ton to liven up the house and keep it modern even though it’s so neutral.

So, I’ve got two questions for you.  First, ever been to Stockholm? Second, how do you like this home?  Do you like it like I do?

Happy Thursday!

Just a Splash: Emerald

I came across this beautiful sunroom design by Emily Henderson and loved the way two bold chairs and fun punchy pattern in emerald green made the entire room come alive.  White walls,  white flowy curtains, and bright open windows certainly keep the emerald from overtaking. It is fresh, pretty, and makes a statement.

How do you feel about the splash of emerald?  Is it something you’ll willing to try this spring?

Have a BRIGHT Tuesday!
