    We’re Inspired: Spring Things

    March 20th began spring, but it hasn’t sprung just yet. As the days start to seem longer and the sun out later, we’re just waiting for the temperature to rise. Until then, we’ll be getting inspiration from the comfort of the indoors. We’re seeing lots of bright bold colors as well as delicate pastels as we dive into some spring-inspo.

    Color Inspo: Luck of the Irish

    Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, and we’re getting in the spirit! Celebrations throughout the month of March have us dreaming in green, and in the spirit of the Irish, we’re sharing our favorite festive design inspirations.

     In Irish folklore, it is thought that painting your door red will keep away evil spirits. Other spiritual references say a red door symbolizes safety and shelter where one is welcome.
