In case you missed my message on Instagram the other day, a few changes are coming to this space. One is happening rightthisminute… I’m ending our link love column and morphing it a bit. Instead, I thought back to what I’d want to see on a blog on a Friday. Usually by the time this much-anticipated day rolls around, I’m feelin’ pretty worn out from the week and aching for some inspiration. Fashion, home decor, jewelry, artists… whatever form, gimme that eye candy and make it quick. I want my Friday finds to feel curated, but not exactly trend-driven. Things that have caught my eye, but don’t warrant an entire blog post. Things that play well together, but aren’t besties. It will be an evolution, but I’m excited for a different approach to closing the week.
Clearly this week I’ve got a thing for neutrals paired with metallics. Lately, bronze and copper have felt more like a color choice more so than a material choice. These tones are popping up across the spectrum and are no longer reserved solely for jewelry or home.
The fact is that I’ve sort of had enough with color thanks to the glut of the holidays. I want everything to feel clean, fresh… easy. I’m not ready to shed pattern just yet, but instead I want scale to be practically miniature and the artwork itself to feel graphic. None of this feels precious or precise. Rather, it’s more about a sophisticated casualness mixed with a slight twist of boho.
And don’t forget the importance of circles. Even within my own designs, I’ve always been fascinated by the circle. My sketchbooks are often found to be full with different takes on this classic.
