Valentine’s Wish List

Valentine’s Wish List Valentine’s Day is not one of those holidays that you decorate your house for in a big way.  But it’s always fun to have little accessories here and there to celebrate the month of love.  I like the subtlety of Valentine’s Day way more than any grand gesture.  When we were growing up, my parents always had a little box of chocolates for us on Valentine’s Day.  It was a kind and thoughtful way of implying that Valentine’s Day is for all types of love–not just romantic. …

January Mood

January Mood There’s something very challenging and satisfying about taking images that inspire me and using that inspiration to create and design a 30 page magazine.  I know it sounds crazy, but it’s true.  How do you go about creating something from nothing but a feeling or a mood?  It’s a process that they taught us in design school, but instead of designing a room or a house, I’m designing a monthly magazine.  Whenever a new issue of Wilma comes out, I like to share the mood board I created…
