This summer, my family and I went back to our most beloved vacation spot, Grand Teton National Park. I traveled there so many times as a child, but going back as an adult, I was absolutely blown away by all of its natural beauty. I wanted share some of my favorite moments...

Well hello there! I know its been ages since I've posted, life has been absolutely crazy (in a good way) but I'm not ready to turn the lights off on this venture yet, so better late than never right? I wanted to share one of our latest Free People store openings in Bridgeport, Oregon. (It's near Portland) This was an exciting opening for me because I made most of the display from scratch to open with our Summer concept a couple weeks before we transitioned as a company. I'm absolutely in love with the colors, textures and overall vibe of our Summer display. It's 70's macramé, sea tones, and fringe all pulled together in one very Free People package...
Prepping for the trip meant honing my macramé skills, and having my hands in blue dye for weeks, making pieces the size of my house to reach the 22 foot ceilings. It's always so inspiring to work in a brand new beautiful space, (notice the sparkly walls and intricately carved wood) and such a reward bringing it from start to finish with a group of talented and dedicated women. And of course, hanging out in Portland for a week wasn't too shabby either. Consider this just a sneak peek of the Summer display we've been installing all over the country this month, more pics to come I promise! Until then...Enjoy!!

Happy Friday! I love my job and find it to be very creatively fulfilling, but I also love to step away and do something that is soley my own from time to time. As you well know I have a fascination with the mountains and though I know I may never be able to capture their true beauty,I've started to paint them into my abstract landscapes and golden patterning. So I just wanted to share what I've been working on lately...
Hope you have an inspired weekend..Enjoy!

As far as I'm concerned, turquoise goes with absolutely everything and never goes out of style.
And for a Northwest girl who rarely gets to see the ocean, it can be a great little dose of that coast color...Enjoy!

Sometimes just one photograph is enough to say it all...
With Spring being so close I can taste it, I'm loving all of the above...florals, big hats, white lace, and lots and lots of jewelry...and doing it all with a 70's inspired twist; perfection.

Lately I've been inspired by the layering and transparent qualities of watercolor. Artist Tobias Tovera has a whole body of work exploring these exact properties. His 'diffusion of pigment' series explores tonal hues moving organically in and out of each other. I love the raw and rough edges juxtaposing the soft washes of greens and blues..
Hope you're having an inspired weekend..Enjoy!

I have a little fascination with feather headdresses. They beautifully combine some of my favorite elements and I love how soft and feminine they are while feeling incredibly strong and powerful...
I've been pinning them like mad, check them out here...Enjoy!!

Lately I've been incredibly inspired by longhorn skulls as decor. There is something very majestic and mysterious about them and even a little bit creepy. But mixed in with a touch of pattern and color they are absolutely brilliant...
This is definitely next on my list for a home decor project, happy weekend everyone...Enjoy!!
