On to the Next

On to the Next

One of the many things that makes Elsie Green a nice place to work -- we all possess a growth mindset.  We're always reading new books, learning new skills, and challenging ourselves in new ways.

Our Affinity for Film

Today, we'd like to suggest another way to feel inspired while we continue to shelter in place. Pull out your film camera(I will be using a disposable because that is what I have) and play. Snap photo's of your family, of flowers you see on your walk, a still life in your home, anything that may inspire you. When this storm has passed, develop your film and see the silver linings and moments of beauty you were able to capture and will be able to look back on for years to come.

With the confluence of California's Shelter In Place order and "Little Fires Everywhere" on Hulu, I'm reminded of how much I love to read. If you're looking for a good read to pass the time until we can all gather again in public places, here is my list of all time favorites.

One Thing at a Time

When it came time to decorate the shops and our homes for Christmas, it seemed a nice reward to simplify, slow down & allow ourselves to enjoy the process.

My comfort zone has changed dramatically over the last seven years.

Go ahead. Steal my sources.

One of the best things about being in a creative field is the abundance of beauty that surrounds me every day.  Sometimes a photo of a dining table will inspire a color palette, or a pattern on a dress will bring to mind an idea for a floral installation.  However, when putting so much creativity out each day, sometimes it's nice to just refill the well of inspiration, so to speak.

Happy New Year, friends!  You may have noticed that Kelsey, Millie and Emily have taken over the blog and have been doing a very good job bringing you ideas, inspiration, design news and other fun things we discover along the way.  Thanks, ladies.  You're the best.
