About Color

It all comes back to color.

You can have a wonderful design, great execution but it’s nothing without great color.

I’ve always leaned towards history and nostalgia. In school subjects and in my everyday life. I’ve felt close to different aesthetics at different points in my life. As an ex-goth I was a Victorian and a hippie Beatles fan. I was really into the 1940s and tattoos and pinup style and aggrotech. I sorta move between styles without realizing it.

Most recently I’ve been a stay at home mom and a wife. I’m a housewife. I’m not CEO of the family or something else that makes it sounds important when it doesn’t need too. There is nothing wrong with “housewife” other than it’s outdated now. I keep things so that the three others in this family are happy and healthy. That is nothing to be ashamed of. In this stage of my life I’m loving classic style of the Atomic Age.

Like. My beautiful mint Kitchenaid mixer.

And creamy dreamy colors.

I’ve been keeping a pinterest board of color I use for palette inspiration. I just wanna swim in that first one. Mmmm
