Behind the New Branding

Notice the new branding? Well, it's really only the beginning. I have a few more things up my sleeves... so stay tuned!!!

I have been kind of driving myself crazy about the pink and green thing. The damask? I was over it. Way, way... way over it. Actually, this post was the initial brainstorm behind what I wanted to do. I kind of whipped up that post as a trial run. (Like how people tell you to write what you want as a tattoo on a Post-It and put it on your mirror?) I've been pulling it up every now and then to see if I still like it. Yep.

The day I pulled the trigger, it was completely spur of the moment. It was particularly HOT outside and I was just... inspired to go for it.

Leading up to that post, I had been pulling images on a secret Pinterest board. Here's ultimately what inspired the new look:


See how it looks on...

What combination is inspiring you? Do you have a moodboard on Pinterest?

  16. I love this! When we (my husband and I) redesigned my blog recently we went with mint and grey. They're my favorite colors and I just think they look perfect together.
    I adore your redesign, it's gorgeous.
