Tulum Pinch Bowl with Spoon
Bet you thought this post was about eating healthier or getting more sleep… but it’s not! A Sensible Habit is the whimsical collection of home goods designed by our friend, Brandy Schuman. By day, Brandy is the Marketing and Social Media Manager at Blabla Kids and by night, she gets her creative on in her Atlanta home studio.
Pretty Pink Spoon Rest
Rosé Club Enamel Pin
What started out as a blog documenting Brandy’s love of food and entertaining evolved into designing invitations for her friends and creating products that complemented her daily life. Brandy then listed her collection on Etsy and things took off.
Porcelain Long Balance Earrings
Over the years, this multi-dimensional artist has explored different mediums and her current collections include ceramics, textiles, jewelry and stationery. From pretty pinch bowls and spoon rests to sassy cards and funky earrings, Brandy’s collection has something for everyone (even all you rosé lovers out there!)

We love the clean, colorful aesthetic of Brandy’s work and plan to make A Sensible Habit part of our everyday life… no kale in sight!

What’s not to love about a Friday in June? Summer is on the way, the end of school is near, and we’ll be sipping cocktails on a terrace or on a beach to celebrate the weekend. We’ve been experimenting with cocktails and have come across some that will definitely be part of our summer party planning. And thanks to Elle Decor, we can sip a drink and get our flower power on!

Happy fabulous floral Friday!

Mood Board Galore
Mood boards are the best! We create one for each seasonal collection we design and begin gathering our inspirations months in advance. Now that we’ve put our Spring/Summer 2015 collection to bed, it’s time to think about next year’s Fall/Winter designs – who knows what will capture our imagination and fuel our creative fire? Mood boards are great for any type of project – whether you’re tackling a home renovation, planning a big event or designing a brand. As a vehicle to get your creative juices flowing, mood boards can’t be beat.
Rose & Indigo – Camille Styes
So we were excited to discover Fiona Humberstone’s blog, The Brand Stylist, and read this recent post. According to Fiona, “Creating a mood board for your business is both inspiring and massively empowering” and needless to say, essential if you’re launching a new venture or want to rebrand an existing one.
Feminine Edge – Breanna Rose
Sorbet Hues – Two Ellie
This month, our e-commerce site, Diane James Home, turns six and we’re working on version 2.0. It’s a little daunting (that’s an understatement!) and we really do want to change things up a bit, yet keep the online identity our customers have come to love. Perhaps this is a good time to follow Fiona’s advice and create a mood board for our brand, one that will give us direction and perhaps have us thinking outside the box… or at least the monitor!
Pastel Prettiness – Breanna Rose
Earthy Feminine – Observant Nomad
Are mood boards a favorite of yours? Do you use them for your projects, too? Happy, creative Friday!
