free printable {don’t put off your happy life}

Hello and Happy Thursday! Is it just me, or does Summer seem to be flying by? Hard to believe we’re approaching August! I know things have been on the quieter side on the blog the last couple of months, and one good thing about Fall is that I hope to get back to a more regular posting schedule. With my five-year-old in school all day (as a teacher I always thought all-day Kindergarten was a great thing, as a parent, I’m not so sure!), I’m sure I’ll want to keep busy (though my 15-month old will be a good means to that end as well).

Anyway, if you haven’t taken a peek at paper+palette recently, hop on over. I’ve been busy designing and adding new prints to the shop almost daily. And while I was at it, I created the piece below as a free printable for you to download and display…Enjoy!

home tour {retro and beachy}

I love to hear about the objects and images that inspire a home’s decor…in the home tour below, the color scheme was based entirely on the 60′s geometric tabletop in the first image below. I love that! Lots of white temper and tone down the brighter turquoise, orange and yellow, but this home is anything but mild-lots of fun pattern and texture come together to create a fun and retro-chic home! Let’s take a look…
