Today, we are inspired by Miles Redd's design of a Bahamas home for a Houston family. It is clear from the pictures that Redd had a lot of fun with this project. The colors and whimsical details reflect the joy of island life.
Jojo Home (our retail shop in front of the studio) is constantly changing and evolving as we receive new inventory. Constantly redesigning it is like a workout in "creativity", and we just love it! Today we re-arranged to feature some of our favorite new products. We are loving all the blues, grays, and greens in the shop right now! Take a look:
Thursdays are for day dreaming. I blame it on Thursday's close proximity to the weekend, but I think all Thursdays should include one good dream. We have decided that Thursdays on the blog should be dedicated to travel dreams in particular.
Katherine (me!) just returned from a trip to England and France. While there, I fell in love with Beaune-- a small town in Burgandy. Beaune is the type town that you dream off when you think of France. It is full of antique stores, wine store, and cheese stores. Wandering the streets feels something like out of a movie-- think Diane Lane in Under the Tuscan Sun (ha! I wish, more like clumsy American).
It is a lovely town with a slow pace. The slow pace leads you to appreciate the beauty and simplicity of life. I hope that my time there will influence my life here as I attempt to learn patience and appreciation for even the smallest details. The meals were perhaps my favorite thing about the trip because the French don't rush through their meals. Rather, each meal has a slow rhythm to it. The slow nature of the meals encourages great conversation. I know I am guilty of rushing through meal times with friends and family, but I think we can all learn a valuable lesson from the French in this department. The Joy of Living as they say! Below are some pictures from our trip!
We are excited to announce that we are going to start a new series on the blog. Once a week, we will feature a "Loving Lately" section. Each week, either Marjorie, Wendy, or Katherine will share some of their favorite finds! The sky is the limit to what might be included; think: food, art, travel, furniture, fabric, accessories, fashion, and more. We hope this will be a way to share our design, style, and ideas. In addition, we hope this will be a way to get to know us and the things that make our life happier! We are excited to get feedback from y'all so that we can learn some of y'all's favorite things!
Today we will start with some of Wendy's favorites from the past few weeks:
1. Hand Printed Textiles
