We’ve been thinking about retiling our bathroom recently and have been having so much fun researching all the different shapes and pattern options. Repeating patterns like the bathroom wall pictured here are such an inspiration for letterpress details like these designs from over the years.

Some might say Cay Lemon has a certain, ummm… zest for weddings. We had so much fun working with Cay to develop a playful logo and identity system for her event planning business Zest. Here are some of the fun pieces we created and some snaps from a few of Zest’s recent weddings.

I’m obsessed! Who knew that such a simple object could be so fabulous? I love these Gigogne tumblers. They come in two sizes – just right for big hands and little – are virtually indestructible, and stack beautifully. Perfection.




Living in the Bay Area, we are blessed (or cursed depending on how you look at it) with the perfect climate for successfully growing succulents. For some (read: me), they have become an obsession to grow and to highlight in your home and garden. And why not use them in your wedding, too? Check our these gorgeous and unique approaches to incorporating succulents into your special day.

We really love what we do, but it makes it extra special when the groom is as involved in the design process as the bride. Julia and Jeff were such a fun duo to work with and so clearly bananas over each other – and Nantucket. From the proposal on the beach to their wedding day, the island is a special place for them both. Take a peek at all the printed pieces from their wedding. A little slice of Nantucket!

My husband and I recently spent a fun evening at Saison, an amazing restaurant in SoMa. Our table had viewing access to the kitchen where we watched the chefs in action as they prepared our 10-course dinner. Each course was impeccable, unexpected and delicious, and every dish was creatively plated and displayed like little works of art.

At the end of the meal, we were presented with the menu from the night sealed in a kraft envelope with a red wax stamp. A nice keepsake to take home to help us remember the special night and every tasty bite.

If you happen to have something to celebrate, I highly recommend a night at Saison.
