Emerald’sÂ elegance and romance are forever entangled.Â The beautiful gemstone is said to be the sacred stone of the goddess Venus, and that its divine powers help to sustain and preserve love. It’s no wonder this exquisite color, Pantone’s color of the year for 2013 (and a Delphine perennial favorite), is the foundation of some of this year’s most fabulously chic weddings.Â It’s a color as old as time, direct from the wonders of nature, so no worries about emerald green being a passing trend! It’s a timeless, classic color, perfect for weddings. When Pantone named it color of the year for 2013 Erika clapped out loud!Â

It’s been a rough few weeks for everyone, hasn’t it? When our son was little he used to scream this at the top of his lungs, with great joy and excitement in his voice, nearly every day … at dawn. When I’m having a bad day I think about his cute little voice shouting out “BEAUTIFUL,” Â and it helps get me through. Next time you’re having a bad day try taking a moment to focus on one little spot of beauty in the world. Â It’s always out there. â€” xoxo, E.Pin It
I’ve been using big 17in laptops for nearly 10 years … and I’ve been searching for a cool laptop bag to fit my 17 inch laptop for nearly 10 years! After fruitless searches (they’re all too ugly, too boring, too small, or too expensive) I’ve resigned myself to using a big tote bag as a laptop bag instead of a traditional laptop bag. The Orla Kiely one I have now is awesome for day to day toting around my MacBook Pro, but not perfect for traveling because the handle isn’t long enough to go over my shoulders if I’m wearing a jacket. It looks like I’ll be doing a bunch of traveling over the next few months, so it’s the perfect time to invest in a new travel tote bag. At least this is the way I’m justifying the expense. Which one do you like best? I bought one … can you guess which?

Filmotype LaCrosse is a true retro font — it was first released in the 1950s. Can’t you just picture it on an ad for lipstick or gold earrings? I love the casual penscript … I really wish my own handwriting looked like this.Pin It
There’s something dreamy and romantic about rusty ironwork. Loving the random juxtaposition of garden statues, succulents, rusty garden carts, and that fabulous spruce green wall at Antiques on Cedros in Solana Beach, California.Pin It
Last night after work I popped over to Stems to see Charleston artist Lulie Wallace‘s stunning floral paintings. I think my jaw dropped to the floor when I walked in. I wanted to take them all home with me! I also really want to paint my living room that gorgeous dark emerald green color now. Who’s with me?Â
Lulie was super adorable and gracious. I was so focused on the paintings I forgot to snap a pic with her, but trust me: adorable. I wanted to squeeze her.Â
Yesterday I was feeling a little homesick for the bright colors of Southern California, but the exhibit cheered me right up. Lulie’s color palette seems to be pulled straight from my dreams: lots of spring green, chartreuse, yellow, peach, with a touch of blue iris Â … and a mini touch of nearly neon). I have my eye on one of her larger paintings for my home, but for now I couldn’t resist a few of her smaller pieces for the Delphine studio. I had planned to give a few of these away as gifts, but it’s going to be hard to part with them.
This house on Beaufain Street in Charleston is for sale. Buy it for me? Pretty please?Pin It
This project was a first for me. Nanna’s boyfriend, Oliver, hired me all the way from Denmark to design a logo for her as a surprise birthday present! I have to say it was a little scary to design something for someone I couldn’t talk to, especially when communication is her field â€”and, when it boils down, mine, tooâ€” but it all worked out great. Nanna loved it (and was completely surprised), I had fun tapping my inner journalist (my old job), and Oliver got loads of brownie points for being an awesome boyfriend.
Nanna is a freelance journalist and communications consultant in Denmark, so the design had to be professional and to the point. I chose a font that has a hint of a pen and a black and green color palette, inspired by vintage typewriters and those dark green office chairs everyone used to have (I still have one at our drafting table).
The logo isn’t her “real” signature, but I can almost hear the scratch of a fountain pen when I look at her name. I threw in the typewriter and pen icons for a touch of whimsey for her social media avatars, but left the business card and note cards clean and simple. It was also fun to design for the standard European business card size, which has a different proportion than American business cards. They’re a little bigger all around, but also more square, which frees up a lot of precious negative space.Pin It
So March totally snuck up on me. Sorry for the lack of posts last month! We were super busy in the studio making some much needed changes to the Delphine website … it now works on mobile devices, yay!!! We also added a few new designs, including Ponderosa, which has been a big hit so far. Thanks to everyone for your support and well wishes as we prep for a super huge wedding season. XO – E.Pin It
