Color Palette: Stone on the Beach

A last little palette inspired by a rainy winter beach walk in the Pacific NorthWest.



Color Palette: Winter Leaves

Here’s another palette inspired by what’s right in front of me, this one of my mom’s yard. Even though it’s the middle of winter, and most things seem dead, there is colour all around us.


Color Palette: Tree Houses

One of my absolute favorite TASCHEN books out right now is Tree Houses. Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I was surrounded by the woods for most of my childhood and spent a lot of time camping or at my family’s small cabin in the middle of the Wenatchee National Forest. Now I dream of staying in tree house b&b’s (an easily achievable dream as there are quite a few in the area), watch shows like Treehouse Masters, and drool over the below book.


Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history.

Color Palette: Heironymus Bosch

Todays inspiration comes from TASCHEN‘s cover for their new book on Heironymus Bosch, the early Netherlandish painter who painted scores of fantastical paintings derived from biblical scenes. The books cover features the main panel from The Garden of Earthly Delights. Although I have never been an overall fan of Bosch’s work, I must admit this painting incorporates some of my favorite colors. TASCHENBOSCH
