Black and white

Ack, I couldn't resist leaving one last post before we leave. I was searching, in vain, for the air conditioner receipt today - I need to mail a rebate claim before we go - and noticed that my tearsheets lately seem to have a black and white theme. It must be a "palette cleanser" (to use the fashion designer phrase for a clean, neutral palette in between seasons), although I haven't been keeping track of fashion trends lately so I don't know if it's just my own taste or if it's an actual trend. So Bebe and I dropped everything to make an inspiration board, just for old time's sake.

Since I don't have a studio, the closet door in the bedroom often functions as design board for me. I can attach everything with magnets, which is actually more convenient than the t-pins we always used on bulletin boards at work. The door to the right of my "board" is Bebe's room.

Ok, now I really have to go find that receipt. See you in August!

  1. Have a lovely time with your family; are you leaving the inspiration board (it's lovely) as a little gift for when you get back? By then you may have moved on to wild, bright colors! At any rate, safe travels!

  2. I am so with you on the black + white theme. I noticed my stash of black + white fabric has doubled in size over the past 6 months. Maybe it is time to make a small quilt for Baby J. Have a safe trip!

  4. I think the black and white theme is one of the things going on for fall fashions...tho it seems to depend on where you look...the latest Elle.. I often seem to subconciously pick up on trends, not sure how it works, but ive been in love with arm warmers and un attatched sleeves for a while now and it turns out a lot of the fall lines have some variation on that....
    anyway, look forward to your return :)

  7. The Boy was saying "Liesl" the other day. In fact, whenever we go to a door thats not our own, the Boy says: "Liesl". Hope to see you soon.
