I’ve got summer on the brain with the hot weather we’re currently having, and these bright, raw, colorful patterns feel perfect for summer.
One of my favorite things in fashion are lines like this. Winde Rienstra’s mix between art and fashion. Especially when textures, multi-dimensional forms, and mixes in textiles are involved. They’re so beautiful.
Here’s a little excerpt from a studio visit with Winde Rienstra —
“With my collections I try to look for the fine line between fashion and art, I find it interesting to see the body as a sculpture in my design. The designs are somewhere between clothing and object…”
Check out the rest of the interview and more images from Winde’s studio on Dam Style.
Are you subscribed to Of A Kind? It’s not just another shopping subscription site, it’s filled with beautifully curated pieces with a limited number of editions. I love opening their emails and checking out the newest pieces. I think what stands out most to me are the beautiful images of the pieces – it makes the curation perfectly cohesive.
It’s been awhile since I shared in inspiration board with you! Here’s a peek into a current project for interior designer, Shea Mcgee.

I’m a big fan of textiles, and these beautiful weavings by Brook&Lyn. All the textures, colors, and patterns are so perfect. Wouldn’t mind having one of these hanging on a wall in our place!
A beautiful collaboration between Jonathan Finch and Stephanie Oglesby, creating branding for a festival for creative professionals. I love the play on the festival’s name.
You also can’t go wrong with neutrals and neons.
In the past couple weeks I’ve started a few projects which of course means the fun part — inspiration boards. Here are a couple and I’ll try to share a couple more later, otherwise it may be image overload!
Before my love for design, there was my love for swimming. On last week’s Top Notch Type I shared why swimming is near to me. So, I got SO excited when I came across these beautiful Cigarette Cards on how to swim. How cool are they?? Check out the rest of them here.
I thought I’d change this week’s Design + Style up a bit and share with you a tumblr I recently started. I wanted to do something that was less related to work or specific to design and more relaxed, chalk full of all the things I love (specifically, design & style related). Sometimes you just need to step away from work related design and into a new creative outlet.
I have been coming across so many amazing branding jobs lately that have been so inspiring and beautiful. Oat Creative did an impressive job for Bondir — the raw hand drawn type mixed with the delicate classic type and design elements, is so gorgeous. I’m a big fan of mixing exactly that.
Beautiful branding job by UK based design agency, She Was Only, for photography studio, Motel.
Had so much fun putting this vintage beach glam inspiration board for a new client! As well as putting together a new layout for my boards — I wanted something different but was still visually interesting!
