Comfy outdoors

It's so windy in Vegas today. My hair was all over the place that I had to tie it up. LOL. Just wished the weather would be as calm as this serene outdoor place. I love the clear candle pillar holders and blue color palette which benefits the mind and body to the peaceful environment.

My shop coming soon...

“Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation and a pinch of creativity." ~Bo Bennett


My little Etsy shop will be coming back up soon. I'm so excited about it and will be revamping my banner and all. Stay tune y'all.

P.S. Here it is! Hope you like it!

John Willey Interior Design

'Since my colors don't mix together, there's a clarity to them. It makes the rooms like flower arrangements, where strong colors can work together because each flower has its own separate, unique personality.' ~John Willey for House Beautiful.




Colors and patterns are so energetic that it feels like a tropical paradise. Read more about John Willey's interview on his Nantucket guesthouse. Images via House Beautiful

throw pillows to adore

"Oh, and by the way, I threw away all your little throw pillows. Yea. Cuz throw pillows suck. They serve no purpose. They're purely decorative."

Font Love







Finding some amazing typefaces and my favorites to heart at sudtipos:

"It relies on calligraphic simplicity to achieve artistic sophistication." ~From Koziupa and Paul duo on Diplomatic.

Buffet Script, based on fantastic calligraphy by Alf Becker.

"When you spend so much time researching and studying a subject, you become very focused, directionally and objectively. But of course some of the research material you run into turns out to be tangential to whatever your focus happens to be at the time, so you absorb what you can from it, then shelf it - like the celebrity bobblehead that amused you for a while..." ~Ale Paul on Semilla font.

Romantic Adios Script by Alejandro Paul.

Burgues being used in the Style section of the New York Times magazine.

change the world...


'If I could change the world...I would be the sunlight in your universe...That means so much more love and unity. Daughters will be close to thy mothers sons are being raised by their fathers today. A good family ain't nothing greater. Raise crumbs, hate crumbs that never exist. I'll turn every bullet to a hershey's kiss...' ~T-Pain featuring Akon, Diddy, Mary J. Blige

David Mascha







"The first thing I got really hooked on was graffiti, I learned the basics of colors, how to compose objects etc. but after a while I got more and more interested in digital art. Programs like Photoshop and illustrator became the perfect tools to develop my ideas, giving me a lot more creative freedom and opportunities than a spraycan. I see an artist or a designer as someone who is constantly improving. - David Mascha {Interview for DEPTHCORE}

Showing some love to this amazing talent--Designer and Illustrator, David Mascha. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
