Etsy Schmetsy: Stay Gold, Ponyboy.

There’s something about gold. I’m not sure if it’s the brightness of the color, the sheen of the metal, or the cheer that either brings. For this week’s Schmetsy, we give a shout out to all things golden.

Etsy Schmetsy: CMYK

As a bunch of print designers we’re unnaturally inclined to be fans of process colors: CMYK, from which all colors are printed in, say, a magazine or newspaper. However, it’s not just people who have Evelin Kasikov prints on their wall who are in love with these classically fresh color combos.

Etsy Schmetsy: Grayellow

It came up on The Fashion Show the other week (admittedly on Merlin’s dress which got him kicked off): grey with yellow. I’ve been looking for it and thinking about it as a color combination a lot recently and it may be my new favorite. So effin beautiful together.

warm and fuzzy

I seem incapable of thinking about anything that isn’t Blythe-related these days. Luckily for me, another gem arrived in the mail today. This yellow “pointy helmet” from Lunitas Knitting Shop is ridiculously adorable and makes me feel all warm and cheery.
