The School of Styling is headed to Chapel Hill this fall and their early bird registration ends today. So I thought why not share a little bit about my experience with the workshop…you know, it’s only been since 2014 and last summer since I attended. Better late than never, right?!
Not sure about you, but I can’t believe it’s already May! (Feel like I said that last month, too. And in March…I’m seeing a pattern here.) One of my goals before we hit the summer months is to get better about blogging, or at least come up with a better schedule than
erratic sporadic once a month posts. Definitely have some fun updates to share along with details about what I’ve been up to and have planned.
In the meantime though, pulling another one out of the archives to share with you today…a little something bright and bold, perfect for a Cinco de Mayo or anytime de Mayo wedding or fiesta! Ole!
Not sure where March went, y’all?!? In like a lion, out like a lamb…isn’t that how the saying goes?
Anywho…just in the nick of time, excited to share this month’s fellow creative + business owner feature. I stumbled upon Estudio RoJo thanks to good ol’ Instagram sometime last year. Fast forward to the beginning of this year when owner Jasmin Black reached out wanting to send me some samples of her work. (Um, yes please!) And thanks to those samples, our IRL relationship began.
I had the pleasure of working with Jasmin a couple of weeks ago as she was a big part of a styled shoot Sarah Pascutti and I did at Loray Mill. (Can’t wait to share more about that later!) Not only is her work truly beautiful and awesome, the gal behind it all is as well…and passionate, kind, and darn interesting.
Things have been hoppin’ over here at Hart & Co. HQ! I haven’t blogged much
since last month lately…and that’s why I call it the sometimes blog! And I haven’t put together any design or color inspiration boards just fun here lately either. So figured today would be a good day to dust off the blog by pulling some color inspiration out of the archives…one that’s fitting for today.
Pantone has introduced their choice for Color of the Year for 2016. Actually, add an ‘s’ to color and make it plural. The color experts gave us two colors to covet, be inspired by, to love or maybe even dislike (remember how some folks threw shade to 2015’s color, Marsala?). Regardless of the philosophy, meaning or reasoning behind the choices, I am digging both Rose Quartz and Serenity.
Both were featured as part of Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for Spring 2016 and right away, Rose Quartz caught my eye. Shades of pink are not colors I typically lean toward personally, but I found myself dreaming of ways to incorporate this softer shade. I previously shared my take on the color, which you can find here. And not to leave out Serenity, check out the inspiration below. And while I think this shade of blue has plenty of options, I kind of love pairing it with darker shades of blue and the softest shades of pink.
What do you think? Hope you enjoy!
Winding down 2015’s wedding and event season and slowly gearing up for 2016. I know it may seem silly to think about something that seems so far away…but if you have a spring 2016 wedding, it’ll be here before you know it!
I’ve shared this before, but it was pre-website launch so thought I’d share it again because…sharing = caring. So here’s my take on Rose Quartz and Lilac Gray, two of Pantone’s hues from their 2016 spring fashion color report. You can find this fun inspiration board plus some other pretty things that have me dreaming of spring over on Pinterest.
