A spring clean for Said + Seen
It seems like two minutes ago since I embarked on creating a space to call my ‘design blog..’
(It was only last November) and it took me abso ages to get it looking how I wanted it, but even then I wasn’t quite happy. Am I ever? Pefectionist over here👋🏼 (More to come on that subject later..)
So, new year, new blog! I felt the last was too convoluted, busy and difficult to update, so have instead opted for a very simple scrolling blog… I just want it to be easy to read, easy to update and super clear! Away with the sections, the links and away with the banners!
I do love a typewriter typeface, and just think it’s more ‘me.’ I’ve never been a full serif kinda gal, (although I do enjoy them) I’m more into a cut and stick, recycled stock affair. A bit rough round the edges you know. The kinda blog that only washes it’s hair twice a week.
I love a mixture of vintage furniture mixed with the new stuff - I’m planning on rejigging one of the spare rooms at home to finally get a proper office for myself (it’s only taken year to get it going) I do intend to curate a Mad Men space for myself… I’ve already commandeered 'Luke’s' spare room, I’ve been monitoring the light situation and I can say it’s far superior to bedroom 3.
Of course I put together a mood board (is it even a moodboard? what is it?) A 3D scrapbook? Of colours and type experiments using charcoal and various pens to get that home-grown organic feel I was going for. Less diamonds, more dust.
But still sparkly as ever right?
