Oh hello. Amanda and I are back this week, teaming up with another round of our favorites from blogland, so kick back, grab a cup of coffee or tea, and enjoy these inspiring links in our ‘best of the blogosphere’ series!
It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of Z Gallerie, it’s one of my most favorite places to go for inspiration and also to shop for home décor. I can always find something with a little sparkle or sheen, and great pattern and texture too. They never shy away from bold color and are always reinterpreting the classics in a fresh modern way. Z Gallerie offers something to suit everyone’s taste or style, from global to glamorous, and best of all, at affordable prices.
A few weeks ago I was invited to tour their Design Studio in Berkeley and I took my friend Courtney along. The Studio was filled with all sorts of great design ideas, works in progress, and soon to be released décor. We met the owners and the design team and got to ooh and ahh over all of the new things. For me, it was like being invited into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Room, there was serious eye candy everywhere!
You’re familiar with Z Gallerie’s stylish home furnishings, bedding, art, and accessories, right?
I had coffee with a two blog friends yesterday who live in my town (Cathe and Elise) and we got to talking about some holiday creations we’re planning with fonts (stay tuned for some magic!) but then that got me thinking about how much fun it really is to play around with different fonts on the computer.
My graphic design skills are limited, but I do love to play around with all sorts of different fonts and create simple cards, printables, or labels. Halloween is one of those holidays when it’s especially fun to combine images and fonts together, and last year I made beverage labels using the free software from Picasa, here’s a look back.
