Mood Board | Pretty Polka Dot Pop

March 25th, 2011

When I first saw the ad campaign for Miu Miu Resort 2011 last fall, I knew I wanted to do a fun polka dot mood board for the spring. Polka dots are so much fun to not only decorate with, but also create textured graphics & patterns around. They can fit into any scheme at all. Whether they’re paired off with a damask print – as I’ve done in this mood board – or blended with a striped pattern, they give a great visual snap that is at once easy and peppy.

Mood Board | On the Meadow

March 14th, 2011

…Then the clouds part,
Swallow soaring between;
The spring is alive,
And the meadows are green!

I jump up, like mad,
Break the old pipe in twain,
And away to the meadows,
The meadows again!

– The Meadows in Spring by Edward Fitzgerald

I know it’s not officially spring yet, but I’m impatient for it to arrive. The clocks turned forward yesterday and the plums trees in my yard have been blossoming. Here’s a soft and sunny mood board to get you ready to transition out of winter and into early spring.
