Design Inspiration: The World of Menagerie


Charlie Harper

I recently received a Charlie Harper book of menagerie as a gift, and I thought it was perfect to showcase, his and other's takes on the animal kingdom. We derive most of our inspiration for our prints from good ol' mother nature. What can you find in nature? Why all sorts of amazing creatures, that's what. Here is our tribute to the animal kingdom, where the most vibrant colors and patterns exist.

What's Trending: Quirky Color Combos

Sonia Rykiel

We recently posted on "Feeling Kooky" about dressing outside the box, and this, our "Quirky Colors" post is an extension of that. Not only is it trendy to mix and match prints, vintage with modern, feminine and masculine, it is totally in to do all that in unexpected color combinations. We are loving the combos of mints and corals with rich chocolate. Yum!
