Just As I Am // Blog Design

Posted on: January 18th, 2013 by Hannah Beasley 3 Comments

Meghan loves pink. And all things vintage. And writing (she’s written three books!). So we had a blast creating her design…I especially loved the idea of combing black & white/sepia elements with the other girly colors. She was so sweet and kind – truly a pleasure to work with. Seriously, the best projects are the ones where you and your client can connect on a personal level. I really believe so much in life is about relationships, even when it comes to business! I think my favorite part of this design is the header with the hand-drawn flowers. (not my…

“There Is A Pleasure In The Pathless Woods…”

You can’t get better than trees + deep red + hand drawings! I love the rustic feel of this board and the bright colors mixed with darker ones. This is another project where the style is very similar to my own – and it is so much fun to work on something that is so close to the very things that I love. I am looking forward to sharing the finished products! There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music…

Monday Inspiration

I miss winter. I miss the excitement that comes with a fresh fall of snow, the sharp cold in the air that wakes everyone up and brings out the color in their faces. It’s warm here, and raining, and as I sit at my desk looking out at the gray sky and dark trees I can’t help but wish that snow would come. But for now I’ll settle for winter in design, and I’ll pretend it’s twenty degrees outside. And maybe snow will come… Happy Monday! =) {all images via pinterest. clockwise, from top left: 1 // 2 // 3…

I want to live quietly. To go back to how it was before modern life came and swept away so much of what people used to know years ago. I want to go back to a time where women listened to the call inside them and made their houses beautiful and loved their families, where you would be criticized for going out into the world on your own but not for living quietly with your husband. I want to go back to a time when girls weren’t bombarded by people asking them what college they were going to or what…

Dark Beauty

Dusky purple + distressed wood + gypsy is how I think I would describe this style. I think it is so beautiful and unique – kind of a dark bohemian look with some added sparkle and swirls. This is one of those projects where an idea just popped into my head, complete with all the details. I just love it when that happens, when something just feels right! It makes everything so much easier and a lot more fun. I can’t wait to start fleshing it all out, to show it to the sweet lady I’m working with + see…
