Paper Party! 9th Annual Stationery Meetup

NSS Paper Party 2013 DelphineThe year is just whizzing by. I was scrolling through photos from this year’s Stationery Show and realized I forgot to post photos of our 9th Annual Stationery Meetup invitation. Ooopsie. Here she is. This year I went with something bold and fun, in my favorite colors: emerald green, chartreuse (aka “Delphine green” around the studio), and black.

9th Annual Stationery Meetup 2013 DelphineIt was such a fantastic party. It’s impossible, really, to put it into words. Thanks a million times over to all my favorite paper peeps for celebrating 10 amazing years of Delphine with us, and for being so supportive as we launch our new brand, Chromatic & Co., into the wild. Merci!

Lantana | Freesia, Forest & Crocus Color Palette

Emerald Green Weddings

Emerald Green Wedding Inspiration via Delphine

Emerald’s elegance and romance are forever entangled. 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. 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!

It’s a Beautiful Day

It's a beautiful day quote orange yellow pink via DelphineIt’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,”  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.  It’s always out there. — xoxo, E.

7 Tote Bags for 17in Laptop

big tote bags for 17 inch laptop bags via DELPHINEI’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 | Font Love

Filmmotype LaCrosse font love via DelphineFilmotype 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.

Artist Lulie Wallace

Artist Lulie Wallace Charleston South Carolina via DelphineLast 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? 

Artist Lulie Wallace at Stems in Charleston South Carolina via DelLulie 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. 
Lulie Wallace floral paintings at Delphine studio in CharlestonYesterday 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  … 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.
