Blue + Brown

Vintage umbrella in genius print

One of my favorite things to do in Portland is to hit the thrift stores. Portland has, hands-down, the best thrift stores I've ever been to. (Feel free to debate, but I truly believe that.) You can always find something incredible...or, at the very least, incredible inspiration. Today my inspiration was vintage prints in blues and browns. I'd forgotten how much I love that color combination, and I saw it everywhere! (Including on the amazing umbrella above...why don't they make umbrellas that look like that anymore?) I had to come home and mix up some blues and browns in Plover bedding. But now what I really want is to create a brand *new* Plover print in blue and brown. Hmmm....

Sweet vintage hankies...

This vintage scarf would be brilliant as a duvet cover, no?

Mixing "Brown Leaves" euro shams with a "Teal Squares/Teal Confetti" bed

This is kind of crazy—"Brown Leaves" mixed with our new "Pinwheel" print duvet, "Teal Confetti" throw pillow and "Blue Geometric" pillowcase—but something about it is working for me today... 


  1. YOUR prints are brilliant. Really, just gorgeous stuff. I love the blues w/ the browns, too. :)
