Chaos Comes Before Order

Chaos Comes Before Order by Erika Firm DelphineSorry for the radio silence around here. Things have been … well … chaotic. On top of my already hectic home and work life, I was in a car accident two weeks ago. I can now say that I know exactly how it feels to be hit by a Mack Truck. (Not good, in case you were wondering). I’ve not been able to work a fraction of my normal workload, at home or at the studio. My projects and to do lists are piling up, my house is a certifiable disaster zone, I have no idea how I’m going to find a car I love as much as my old one, I haven’t been able to exercise (i.e. unload stress), I’m missing all the fun Spring Break things I should be doing with my little one, and I feel really really super lousy. But my very wise Tatie (“Auntie”) tells me, “Chaos comes before order.” So I push on.

So to all of you struggling to meet deadlines, struggling to get dinner on the table, or just plain struggling … chin up. Chaos comes before order.

And to all my clients: thank you for your extra patience. Xo —Erika.

Bryson’s Garage | Retro Color Palette

Brysons Garage Color Palette James Island South Carolina by DelphineEvery time I drive by this darling garage I slow down to admire its hand painted sign. The other day the cars that are normally parked in front were gone, and I was able to see the sweet red flowers that someone planted to match the logo and red door. Branding at its finest.

Inspiration Comes of Working — New Phone and Tablet Cases

Baudelaire quote Delphine iphone case for Keka“Inspiration comes of working” is one of my favorite quotes (by Charles Baudelaire). We NEVER stop working around here. We try, but even on our days off we’re sketching and researching and talking shop.

 

I thought it was the perfect quote for an iPhone or iPad case. No more boring iPhone cases! Yay!! Please shop our new Delphine for Keka collection of phone and tablet cases. And for all you early adopters, yes, cases are available for the new iPhone 5s. And yes, I’m jealous of your new phone.

Gold Wedding Inspiration

Gold Wedding Inspiration via Delphine

We just love gold as an accent color for weddings. It’s glamourous and traditional and sensational all wrapped into one. Like true love, gold stays strong through the test of time. We’ve featured our Meeting Street design here in one of our very favorite colorways: gold and black. It’s perfect for an elegant black tie wedding;  the design was inspired by our founder’s own Charleston wedding (fourteen years strong!).
