Do you guys find yourselves hunting for the perfect tech accessories? I know I do. I am always looking for something that looks different from the standard ones, something that’s fun, colorful or even something that goes with the seasons. Be it cell phone cases, I-Pad covers or even laptop sleeves, we all want our accessories to look stylish, fun and match our personalities, right? That is why, when Casetify said they would love to have me join their artist team and create patterns for tech covers, I was over the moon! So here it is – introducing Designforsoul’s Casetify shop.Continue Reading
While I am packing for our move, wanted to share some interior design inspiration with ya. Although our apartment in Canada is as square as it can possibly be, I’m really loving some of these a-frame room design ideas that I came across on pinterest. You could literally convert these awkward space into any room of your choice – even kitchens! and make them feel cozy and welcoming. Here are some of my favorites.Continue Reading
Hey guys I’m super stoked and excited to be sharing my DIY project on one of my favorite blog, Designlovefest today!
The inspiration for this DIY Taco Stand came from a dinner party I hosted recently. Tacos was one of the items I was serving and just did not have anything to serve it on. At the time I managed by putting a tooth-pick through to hold them together. I know a lot of times all the ingredients are kept on the table and people just pick and make their own tacos. However, I just wanted to serve the stacked tacos as there were other dishes on the table too and I kind of wanted everything to look neat and less messy.
It is a super easy and very functional project. Head on over to designlovefest for all the info and a step by step tutorial.
What’s your favorite summer color this year? I have been leaning towards this shade of summer yellow a lot. Pantone is calling it ‘Mimosa’. Last year I was more into pastel shades but this year somehow I have been drawn to bright warm hues. Wanted to share some of my choices with ya!
Last month at Alt Summit Summer 2015 (see full post here & here) , Sherwin Williams was one of our event sponsors and they were handing out these pretty swatch cards promoting their summer color collection. My eye just went directly to this ‘decisive yellow’ shade. Trust me guys if I had a renovation going on right now, I would be definitely be using this one.
I do however, plan on painting my coffee table with it or accent a chair.

Have a lovely summer you guys! Would love to hear your color stories too 🙂
A couple of days ago I attended a home decor DIY workshop organized by Ashley from Sugar&Cloth and Brittni from Paper&Stitch right here in Houston at the Sugar&Cloth studio. They did such a great job in selecting the projects and organizing everything. The studio is so amazing , I could just literally stay there forever. It was great fun doing some home decor project with a bunch of creative ladies. Both Ashley & Brittni have done the workshop round-ups on their blogs which you can read here & here. One of the projects we did that day were making a pendant light bulb fixture from scratch. It was the most time consuming of all the projects we did that day but in the end was totally worth it. I happened to complete painting it yesterday and thought I would share some pics with you. All the materials used were from COLORCORD.
There are more projects I am still working on from that day. You will be seeing them here soon. You can also check my instagram account for more pictures from the workshop.
Hello friends! It’s good to be back on the blog after a while. I know I have been mia recently. A lot has been happening behind the scenes and on a personal front. I will be sharing more details on that soon. Also, I am working on some commission paintings lately so that’s taking a lot of my time. One of the things on my checklist was to order business cards for Designforsoul after I changed the design. This weekend I finally received my order and cannot tell you how excited I was to see them. Oubly did such a great job! and I also received a surprise gift along with my package.yay! They allowed me to upload my custom design and I could also choose from a wide range of colors for the edges. Obviously I opted for the Gold! Here are some pictures I thought I would share with you guys.
These are inspiring me to begin my week and share some exciting work with you guys.
Happy Monday Y’all!
Designers need their dose of visual energy every now and then. Back then it was magazines, advertisement banners, store catalogs, travel diaries and more. Although these will always continue to inspire us , these days pinterest is also a pretty popular forum. This season I am leaning towards the pastel color palette and these are some of the pins that are inspiring me right now. It could be anything , a color combo, a texture, a photoshoot that could trigger other ideas and I’m definitely getting a lot of them right now. Can’t wait to get on with some new projects.
Happy Thursday! the weekend is almost here 🙂
