Paint chips make me ridiculously happy, you
Yeah, it’s an accurate statement. There’s something so magical about fall in the Midwest...and that magic has sprinkled into this space too!
We created extra storage and surface space with a large dry bar and dual custom oak floating shelves suited to host the best of seasonal decor. Now we just need it in our home! 🍂🍁 #clarkandaldineHOME #caakitchen #falldecor #falldecorations
The coziest combination of neutrals! Definitely not what it looks like outside right now...it’s fall ya’ll!! 🍂🍁
Are you cozying up inside today, or are you enjoying that fall weather Share with us below your plans for today ⬇️
Clearly leopard print is having a moment this fall 🐆. Even though this pattern might be trending now we love it because it’s a classic and will stand the test of time - not to mention is a great print for hiding wear and tear from daily use! How are you feeling about the leopard trend #leopardprint

How beautiful is this entry from @k_bloves

So I have a question for you this Saturday morning: do you enjoy your job .
I ask because at about 5:07pm on Thursday as I was finishing work for the week I realised that I actually really like mine and I know that makes me pretty lucky! .
It was not always thus (as my inner Jane Austen likes to say). This time 6 years ago I was due to return to my job as an environmental lawyer in the city after my second maternity leave and I was dreading going back to long days (and often nights) sorting out disputes over sewage discharge permits and Japanese knotweed
In the end the thought of wading through endless effluent (consents) and not getting enough time with my kids was enough to give me the push I needed to leave the law behind and pursue a career in sustainability instead
Six years on my working days couldn't be more different. This week, for example, instead of delving into the finer points of sewage licencing law I worked on a project with our India office to encourage the uptake of renewable energy amongst businesses in Mumbai
So if you like your job tell me one thing you enjoyed doing at work this week And if you are feeling like me 6 years ago (trapped in a job you don't enjoy rather than specifically weary of the world of waste permitting) tell me why you don't like it. Maybe I can help you come up with an exit strategy! .

Some subtle colour to brighten things up for summer 🌞
This week in my weekly email newsletter 3,2,1 Weekend I talk about something I’m really passionate about - and that is about designers and decorators creating multiple revenue streams inside their businesses.
Let’s face it - one to one client work can be hard to find and sporadic and I teach my students to always be thinking about how to create other products, services and experiences to offer people in their community.
As soon as I started to think about what questions I was asked over and over and then started to create products to answer those questions for more than one person at a time my business started to really take off.
Don’t just sit back and wait for clients to walk through the door, take control of your business and make sure you’ve got at least 3-4 different ways that you make money. This will protect you in the slow months when you may not have as many 1:1 clients.
So what’s one new product or service you could add to your business in the next few weeks to bring in some extra revenue A bit of food for thought for your weekend 🤔 ☺️😌😌
TIP // Gain colour #inspiration and design #advice from your surroundings. 🌸
Take Old Mans mural (an iconic surf break) in Canggu, Bali. It’s so fabulous and the artist’s clever use of the many shades and tones of one single hue, #blue, proves you can really simplify your design without losing an ounce of personality. 💙
Not travelling No problem, Mother Nature knows her palette well! Study that vibrant spring flower and the subtle ombré effect on it’s petals. Photograph the sunset one afternoon when the colours are saturated and looking ‘just so pretty’!
And whilst rainbows are pretty, remember you don’t have to commit to every colour to bring personality and energy to a space.
Get confident in your choices by double checking if you’ve seen the colour relationship before...perhaps those 2 or 3 sunset hues will be the perfect inspo for a master bedroom linen selection. Maybe you want to ground your busy living room but know the old sofa isn’t the most favoured piece to showcase. Easy fix = replicate that subtle petal palette through your scatter cushions on top and voila! Sofa is hidden and the block of calming colour will visually settle the space.
So go take (actual) notes of how the world around you uses colour, which ones makes you tic and your scheme will be almost there! 🤓
