color combo: neon yellow-green and bright teal

I don't know why, but I cannot get over this color combo of neon yellow-green and bright teal. I think I posted a picture a while back from my Cape May 2010 post with a photo of an outdoor shower room at our bed and breakfast inn that featured the same color combo. (The photo above was posted on DesignSponge today)

Here's the Cape May pic for reference:

paris record shopping

i have more things to post from our europe trip, and this is one of them. these are some fun/brightly designed 45s i picked up in paris. i loved the pops of color and the typography on these... and the songs turned out to also be awesome.

design project: fake biz cards

recently i've been inspired by a certain hilarious friend to make "fake business cards" that are just for jokes. i think these would be perfect to hand out to people you don't want to talk to at a bar, don't you?

Out in Philly

My lovely boo and i went to Philly this weekend for a mini vacation... and it was THE perfect weekend getaway. We took the bus, stayed at the Latham hotel w/ a free night from, ate cheese steaks, drank infused vodkas at Gunners Run and beer at Monk's, had delicious brunch at Sabrina's, then headed back! Honestly such a pleasant trip – I highly recommend it.

i saw these dogs around all day, so they're probly famous

Out in Paris

Here are some pictures from our time in Paris. We happened to be there for Paris Design Week, so we went to some of the stores participating in that (and did a little shopping). We hung out in the Marais, ate the world's best falafel as far as I know, went up the Eiffel Tower at night and saw the beautiful lights show, walked the Champs Élysées, sat at cafés, ate at Chardenoux (a Cyril Lignac restaurant), and more...


a restaurant we couldn't afford just yet. gorgeous seafood, though.

la grande epicerie (aka world's best cafeteria)

place des vosges

we caught the lights show at 11pm! (It only lasts for 5 minutes each hour)
