Welcome to The Week In Pictures! It’s been another long, looooong week but things ended on a personal high note when this tweet came through bright and early this morning. My biggest and most challenging personal project to date is finally in existence! And, it has a spine! Much more details about the design and production process is coming very, very soon!
Onto other news: not to sound completely overdramatic (ha!) but my office is now exactly the way I always dreamed of. What changed? I picked up another set of flat files over the weekend at IKEA and that one addition allowed me to really, truly get my space organized. If you’re wondering what exactly flat files are and why they’re useful, I’ll be sharing more in post next week.
Over the weekend, Joey was walking home and spotted a palm tree that our neighbor was getting rid of. It was a solid 8 feet tall but that didn’t stop him from lifting it onto a skateboard and pushing it home! He got some good double-takes for sure. Out back yard is beginning to morph into a tropical paradise and I love it!
I defaulted to two of my favorites this week: studs and stripes. I’m wearing an H&M striped tunic, Zara skirt with gold zippers and my trusty TBA wedge sneakers.
I joined Auntie Nubs for dinner last night and she surprised me with an oversized newsletter from Eileen Fisher that’s simply called &. The type throughout is so beautiful in its simplicity.
Like I said, I just got super major organized. I love being able to find everything I need in an instant.
Grid Index is my latest design obsession. Featuring the most intricate, stunning grids, each page is a subtly patterned masterpiece. Best of all, it comes with a disc so you can instantly access every single pattern featured in the book. I’m already dreaming up a few ways to use them in upcoming projects.
Have an amazing weekend! I’ll be working around the house and watching the Olympics in the background. Feels good to chill out and enjoy the last few days of July.
