new space inspiration

Well, I’m moving into a new place in a little over a week and I have nothing to fill it with except a couple vintage chairs, my clothes, a desk, and other random decorative and shop supply items. I’m basically starting from scratch. Including a bed, as in, I don’t have one. It’s a little scary but pretty exciting because I was so sick of all of my belongings from my college years and am ready to update my space to reflect my current taste.

So, I’ve pulled together some images of awesome interiors that I’ve pinned over the years in order to get some inspiration for my new place. (I’m thinking about sharing my decorating progress on the blog. yay? or nay?)

A total contradiction to my shop, right? Well, I decided I wanted a calming oasis this time around and I feel like neutrals in natural textures will help achieve that. We’ll see what develops over the next few months, though, because most of the time I tend to purchase very colorful things…

Stay tuned!

 

 

Vacation

Eagle Nest, New Mexico | Confetti Riot

Recently got back from a little vacation to northern New Mexico (pictured above is Eagle Nest, NM). It’s one of those hidden gem getaway spots, kind of like how Destin, Florida was about 18-20 years ago (yes, I’m old enough to remember it back then). Growing up, I’ve been fortunate to have family connections in some pretty cool places, which made for awesome, but cheap, vacations; Taos, New Mexico being one of them. I get nostalgic when I drive down a gravel road, hear “I Saw the Sign” by Ace of Base (random, I know), or get a whiff of fresh mountain air. I crave yearly visits and feel odd when July and August roll around and I still haven’t made a trip.

You have probably noticed that a lot of my products in my shop are inspired by my many trips to Taos. I’ve become obsessed with the landscape, the adobe structures, and of course the amazing textiles. So if you’re looking for a new place to visit because you’ve been to every other awesome place the US has to offer, I recommend either Taos or Santa Fe. You won’t be disappointed. I promise.
