Here’s a confession… details and I… we have a little bit of a love|hate relationship.
In my past… the “big rock” details used to really trip me up as a detail dodger – I’m more of a big picture thinker… so when details [think tax returns, mountains of admin, or very long excel spreadsheets] are placed in front of me… I feel the energy draining instantly – and I’ve had to learn a few tricks to help me “enjoy” [read: get through] these details.
But then… there are other details that really rock my world… and I thought I’d share a few of the ones that caught my eye this week:
Details in Typo:
I found myself in a typo store… literally soaking up all the details… exploring all the little trinkets and treasures…
As someone who dreams of having a sorted office [that’s pretty too], I thought I’d “invest” in these cute file dividers [and my collection is really growing!].
I spotted this little treasure at one of the stalls… and I was like: OMG… I have to have this…
I’ll tell you more about this little baby (and it’s friends) next week!
Party Time Details:
Put a camera in my hand – and I instantly focus on all the little details of the story that’s unfolding before my eyes [as I noticed when I processed pics from Gigi’s birthday:
Finding details in Pinterest:
I can pick up on the little details that either send me to design heaven – or mess with my eyes!
[I usually like to focus on pinning the ones that delight me though]
This week’s delight – were on the topic of:
I love the idea of creatively expressing what you’re feeling… making art through life…
…and I’m sensing a little art journalling in my future!
If you also want to have a go at it [or check out some more inspiration] – then check out my Pinterest board [which will grow over time].
and I’d love for you to share the awesome journals you’re creating 😉
Details out and about:
I really enjoyed these Protea’s in Suprette… their gorgeous yellow-ness really jumped out at me…
… and I was super intrigued by the detail of the triangular leaf… so I captured this for you… glotta love me some yellow details.
and I love how they have splashes of yellow right throughout the restaurant… I felt like I was working in the hub of the World Design Capital… very inspiring
Ps… They had also had super bright pink Proteas… and I loved the extra pop of colour they gave to the place – very cool [and striking]. It was only until someone at the table next to me noted that they were dyed, that I realised it!!!
Haha… either way… just the pop of colour I needed to lift my day [considering how cold, wet and grey it was outside]!
Now those are the kinds of details I love…
