Design Crush: Jewel Tones

Design Crush: Weathered Jewel Tones

While I’m not sure I’ll ever tire of a tone on tone, neutral space, I do like to inject colour into the spaces I’m working on from time to time. And when it comes to choosing a colour to add, I invariable end up leaning towards jewel tones.  In particular, those that look a little weathered and worn. Like they’ve been around for a while. Nothing adds soul to a space like something with history and these weather jewel tones add a depth and richness that I can’t get enough of.  I’ve rounded up some of the spaces and colours I’m most inspired by below.

Design Crush: Dark Paint

Design Crush: Dark Paint

I love spaces that feel like a deep, relaxing exhale.  The kind that are comfortable and encourage lingering.  While I tend to gravitate towards shades of white and neutral palettes, lately I’ve fallen in love with dark and moody spaces.  They feel captivating, like a cozy embrace.  The darker tones feel elevated and offer depth and character in a way a white space can’t.  I’ve rounded up some of favourites below.  What do you think?

Design Crush: Black Artists

It’s been a month since George Floyd was murdered.  And while we still have miles and miles to go, I am hopeful.  The world feels a little different and the movement feels stronger and deeper than it ever has.

I like so many of you I have spent the last few weeks reading, learning and reflecting.  In my exploration I’ve come across a number of captivating black designers and creators that I’d like to share with you.  Although I’m not entirely sure what change looks like, I know I want to be a part of it. I hope you enjoy.
