Wise Words // Design Sponge Manifesto


Happy Tuesday!! How was everyone's weekend?!

I spent Friday - Sunday painting my bedroom and upstairs bathroom, so yeah Monday's arrival didn't feel too bad compared to all that.  I love how it turned out and I can start to see some real progress, but that's another story for another time! 


If you're an avid design blog reader you are probably very familiar with the genius that is Design Sponge; if you're not take the time to get to know them! They have oodles of DIY tricks, tips, inspiration and general design goodness to discover, but most recently they've come out with a new mission statement that I wanted to share with you all. It's 10 simple, lovely and inspiring reminders to keep with you when designing your home.  As a designer myself I know all too well how it can quickly become overwhelming trying to pull a space or home together into one cohesive look and feel.  (Heck, that's basically why I have a job in the first place; To create order out of the chaos and help bring your beautiful vision to life!)

But honestly, sometimes you just need a gentle reminder that it's your home and your home alone, so you can do whatever you damn well please to the inside! Happy Reading :)

Check out the full story and their new mission statement here!

I personally love the overall tone they're promoting; it's approachable, relaxed and hopefully gives you some confidence going into your next project! Which lesson hit your heart strings the most?

Welcome to the Studio 1049 blog!!

Hey There!

Thanks for stopping by, I’d like to welcome you to my tiny corner on the inter-webs where I hope to share my design musings and inspiration.  

Some of you may or may not know I threw caution to the wind back in January of this year and started my own interior design company, STUDIO 1049.  It’s been an awesome and challenging experience to say the least and I’m so happy to have taken this leap of faith.  I couldn’t have done it without the wonderful support from those around me, so thank you for everything!

I’ve known for some time a blog would be essential in taking my business to the next level, so this is that attempt. Stay with me while I get my bearings here and I hope you enjoy your stay!

Here are a few inspirations to get you through your week!
