Normally I find the transition to spring to be a bit awkward, especially given how unpredictable the Chicago weather can be (seriously what do I even wear right now?). However, this April is off to a fairly pleasant start and I find myself wrapping my arms around those tiny signs that summer is on its way. So far it’s been a refreshing month filled with lots of moments of creativity which I’ve been channeling towards my next release. I’m currently focused on adding more desktop tools and home goods to my collection and hoping to strike the perfect balance between function and beauty.
Next week I’ll be launching some new spring products and I wanted to share the inspiration behind it all. Lately, I’m all about effortless daily style and imperfect brush illustrations and have worked to create a thoughtful collection that will seamlessly fit into everyday life. I also aimed to create a color palette that feels fresh and will provide the perfect transition into springtime. I’ve had a thing for rust for some time now, but am recently drawn to dusty blues and pale grays. I can’t wait to reveal all the new items very soon!
I officially have fall on the mind. I never like to rush through the seasons, but given that today marks one month until I get married in Colorado, I really can't help myself. I’m ready to see the leaves start to change colors and in the meantime, I’m busy dreaming up new products for the shop.
Right now I’m itching to get back to a mostly neutral palette with maybe a touch of rust or terra cotta here and there. My goal is to let the paper and printing be the focal point of my next release and to incorporate more screen-printed products.
Here's a peek at the mood board that is serving as the inspiration behind my SS18 collection. As we ease into spring, I am embracing each extra minute of daylight and the sense of renewal that comes with the season. I always feel so hopeful at this time of year and am looking forward to seeing the first buds begin to appear. In the meantime, I am working to channel these emotions into my new designs in a way that is effortless, yet refined. My goal is to create pieces that will seamlessly fit into your life and make you extra excited to tackle each day and celebrate all the wonderful moments that come along the way.
The Evermore Desktop Collection is very close to launching and since you probably can't contain your excitement like me, I thought you might like to see the mood board which served as the inspiration behind it.
When it comes to desktop organization, I’m all about simplicity and functionality. With that in mind, I strived to create tools that will help you easily keep your goals and to-dos in sight, while also giving your desk a minimal and artful touch. I hope you love the combination of subtle abstract details with clean lines and text as much as I do and I look forward to unveiling the end result to you.
To be the first to know when the collection is available online, please sign up for my newsletter here. And if you’re located in Chicago, you can be the first to shop it in person this Thursday 7/27 at The Monogram-athon event at Madewell on Rush St. from 6-8pm. More details here.
As the seasons change, so do the colors and images that I am inspired by. The progression of it is pretty evident in my pinterest feed as wintery neutrals are gradually replaced by springtime hues. As a long-time color-phobe, this time of year has always proven to be very refreshing and when I tend to embrace color the most, both in my wardrobe and my designs. Right now I am especially drawn to a combination of sage and dusty rose with skin tones. I’ve been experimenting with them a lot lately and plan on incorporating them into my upcoming product release.
