5 things: Emerson Fry

Posted October 29, 2014 by Christina

 

I want to start with saying Thank you to everyone who reads the blog and also to all of the talented ladies who have taken the time to participate in this series so far.  It is so wonderful to be able to share their work and a little piece of who they are here with all of you!  It is my pleasure to welcome Emerson Fry to our 5 things series.

Emerson has turned a small business into a beautiful sought after clothing line in front of our eyes over the last few years.  I do truly miss all of the amazing photos of her in her beautiful designs but I love the direction she has taken her brand. 

 

-What did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to focus on design related work. Over the years that switched between painting and fashion related. Ultimately both are important and related. Right now I'm focused on building our company. Years from now I’ll be able to make more time for painting.  

-Where do you find inspiration?
I try to find inspiration everywhere I look. I feel if I can’t do that then I need time to recalibrate. For our customer, we are thinking about the modern woman and what she really needs, how she really lives and what she wants to do.  This is en evolutionary process for us, and in many ways this is less about inspiration and more about editing. Less is more.  

-Do you work from home?  Office?  Studio?
I primarily work out of the office unless travelling for business or photo work. Development, creative and imagery work are all in house at our office, which is how my time is split throughout the day.  

-Are you a City girl or a Country girl?
The city is great for anonymity and enjoying what’s happening in culture etc., however for the most part I like to spend my off time outside and in nature when possible. Nature is infinite in its variations of beauty and design. There is no end in it. You could listen to birdcalls or look at seashells or look into the stars every day of your life and still there is more to look at. It’s in city parks, it’s in the sky over the highway. It’s in the glittering reflection of leaves on the street.  I think everyone likes some time to tap back into more primal things inwardly or outwardly. To know a place where life is fresh and wild. I am no different.

-What are you reading right now?
A lot of books about meditation. It’s amazing how creating space between thoughts can create space within your life.

Fall table inspiration...

Posted October 28, 2014 by Christina

Fall is one of my favorite seasons.  I love how the days begin to cool and everything seems to take on this feeling of ease before the holidays set in.  Along with it come the pumpkins which are one of my favorite things, each is such a unique piece.  Our fall table usually is covered with things that I can get from the yard and a mix of pumpkins.  This year I wanted to mix in succulents and some vintage antlers that I have.  I used a simple base of recycled packing paper right off of the roll and proceeded to pile goodies upon it.  Simple and easy and easily moved around to accommodate drinks and food as necessary.  The best part is that everyone can see each other to keep the conversation going during and well after dinner.

weekend wishes...

Posted October 25, 2014 by Christina

 

I cannot believe how quickly this week has passed and I am so glad to have landed right here at the weekend.  I hope you have amazing plans for the next couple of days.. maybe some pumpkins, some baking, something fall related?  We still have yet to hit the pumpkin patch as a family  and I am looking forward to having a few minutes to start planning for a fall dinner with friends.  That means all the good stuff like dishes, food and decorations, so excited!

Here's a little of what caught my eye this week...

Anthro has an extra 25% off of their sale goodies right now and they have some perfect pieces in there!

I signed up for this wreath making class with Design Love Fest and Moon Canyon... so excited!

I loved this fall table idea... now to figure out my own..
I kept seeing this fun art and finally found the amazing source..
On a side note if you are an email subscriber and have not been recieving our posts.. please don't give up on me, with moving the blog and everything we have been experiencing some difficulties with the feed.  I promise we will get it all fixed up!  And soon we will have the new shop all ready to be explored too... Thank you for your patience!
Have a wonderful weekend!
