Love, love, love these illustrations by Daryl Feril! Absolutely gorgeous! Love how florals influence design and vice versa. These gorgeous mixed media illustrations are the perfect marriage of the two!
Check out more of Feril's work on Behance.

We recently did a Sweet 16 that was a black light, club-esque affair. Its seldom that we get a chance to design anything with so much freedom, color and graphics. In fact, I think this was our first event ever without floras! Check out the inspiration to creation below...
Photographer Erik Umphrey did an awesome job capturing the mood amongst the glowing purple and blacks created by reFraction lighting. DJ Dojah created the perfect thumping bass of a nightclub while guests clad in all white bounced with the beat. Shannon Leahy kept it cool while checking guests of the list and marking them as VIPs with our custom designed glowing bracelets!

We love to give a gift that's as special as the recipient. For us gift giving is a part of storytelling, a way to say thank you or we've selected something especially for you, its a way to show appreciating or to cheer someone up. One of our favorite parts of the gift giving process is the packaging... a great gift starts when a beautifully packaged object is placed in the hands of the one it is meant for. Here are some of our favorite ideas for creating a beautifully packaged gift.
love the eco friendly and sophisticated look of these fabric wraps from Chewing the Cud.
love the clean and simple packaging from thinkgarnish.com
and for some fun and inexensive packaging pick me ups... check out our favorites from etsy!

Love this Nautical inspired photo shoot we did with Very Merry Events and Tinywater photo. This was a fun use of color and pattern with rope knot details and modern design. Check out the full feature on Grey Likes Weddings!

We spend a lot of time looking at images, designing spaces and pinning pictures of rooms for inspiration.
We love spaces of all kinds, but stumbling upon a perfectly imaginative room for a child always offers and unexpected breath of fresh (design) air. Here are some of our favorite recent finds...
Love the idea of painted imagery with the addition of 3D objects like this tree and birdhouse wall decor. Create a sweet and meandering display using cupcake liners and colored thumbtacks (as seen on apartment therapy). We love this crescent moon cradle from the Creme Anglaise line on Cargo Collective. Create a little vignette in a girl's room like this one above a day bed (from mycakies). How adorable is this toddler bedding and star wand by Colette Bream?????
Ok, so maybe we love good design for little ones because we all wish we had a safe, cozy and inspired space to curl up in a read a good book!
