Instagram Inspiration

I have to say that of all the social media platforms that I have used over the past few years, Instagram is still my favorite. I love pretty pictures, fun filters and short video clips and being able to get my fill of pretty when I have a few minutes to spare is a good thing. I also love all of the amazing artists, fabric designers and beyond creative people that I have been able to discover through Instagram. It helps me to get out of my comfort zone when creating designs for my clients and having a fresh perspective is key to keeping the creative vibes on track. Discovering new things and design tools is one of my favorite things to do, and sharing them is even better. Here are a few of my favorites, hopefully they will become one of yours too!

Today, I wanted to share five of my favorite Instagrammers….and yes…I stalk them a bit. I have a huge list, so I’m thinking this may be the start of something new on the blog!

 

#1  hayley_kmHayley Mitchell Art

“28.Art stuff. Mom of 3.”

The rosy cheeks of her paintings just make me smile and her use of bold color has a sophisticated element that balances out the fun and funky feel of the pieces. One of her commissioned pieces is being framed for a client’s sitting room mantle, and I can not wait to see the room come together around the pieces. You can shop her pieces on Etsy or visit her website for all the details on custom pieces too!

I love her behind the scenes look at all of the colorful and classic updates that she is making in her home. She has her hands full with five kiddos, but they are always lending a hand and make the best little models!

#3 marirdesign – Mari Robeson

“Illustrator | Interior | Home Decor Designer | SHOP www.marirobeson.bigcartel.com | San Luis Obispo, Ca”

Mari is my go-to girl for all of my interior illustrations. She has been a huge supporter of my Studio as well as my Shop and is the most lovely lady to work with. Her creativity, talent and calming energy shines through each illustration that she creates. Her SHOP is full of the most perfect pieces of stationary, pillows and fabrics all made from her stunning illustrations!

The 100 Day project was by far my favorite! I was amazed at how she could easily create gorgeous illustrations everyday and each of them be so full of life, detail and bold color.

Summer Camo

I love that camo has made a comeback, but not in a frumpy “I’m going huntin'” kind of way. I find myself grabbing t-shirts, make-up bags and even fun flip flops during the summer to mix up my look. Trendy? Yes, but I love that the variations of pattern and color make anything look outdoor chic! I have pulled a few of my favorite camo pieces for summer below. And can we just talk about the rubber rings for a second? My husband has been wearing these since he lost his. After buying a 3rd replacement metal ring these became much more affordable and not so bad when they became lost.

Making An Entrance

This month’s Dallas Morning News Home Team is focusing on making the most of your entry space and sharing tips and tricks for creating the WOW factor that every entry space deserves.

Layer up

Abbe Fenimore of Studio Ten 25

Layering is key to creating the depth and visual appeal that small spaces are usually missing.

One of Fenimore’s entry go-to’s: mirrors. They help open up and introduce light to smaller entry spaces.

“Look for something oversized and interesting that will create a wow factor and give you a place to grab one last look before you walk out of the door,” Fenimore says.

When choosing pieces for an entry, look for items that are cohesive with the rest of your home, but don’t be afraid to play with color.

“An ottoman in a fun accent color, a great lamp with colorful details, and accessories that grab your attention make a great combination for any entry,”she says.

Just The Light Touch

This month’s Dallas Morning News Home Team is all about the lighting. “Never underestimate the power of a fabulous floor lamp, says Abbe Fenimore” Our Dallas bachelor pad was full of amazing light fixtures, but this Tulip Floor Lamp designed by Emporium Home from Shop Ten 25 knocked our socks off!

I’m A Quiz Dork {But This One Is Good}

I have been a major quiz dork lately. I love the goofy ones like “How Southern are you?” and “What Golden Girl are you?”. But, there is nothing better than a good design quiz.

We Love A Good Quiz…

My Domain is helping you find the perfect hue for your bedroom with this swanky little quiz.

I’m not sure about my results…BLACK…but now I’m feeling like I need to branch out. What color did you get?

designdaredevil

 

“Talk about sophisticated! A black bedroom oozes sex appeal, while still feeling refined and chic. Black is the perfect color for anyone with a bold glamorous side, and it works best as a background for shimmering metallic accents and luxurious fabrics. If you like the idea, but are wary of the commitment, consider hanging large pieces of art to break up the solid dark plains.”
