{lauren alane} currently loving…


A great set of visuals in one of my current favorite color combinations from crafter Lauren Bradshaw…


WHO…Lauren Bradshaw of LaurenAlane, a lifelong crafter from Winter Park, Florida. 

Gray and black with pops of color or sparkle. While I used to gravitate towards wearing patterns all the time, I’ve had a lot of fun wearing darker solids and dressing them up with a touch of color, or my grandmother’s sparkly vintage jewelry. Using gray and black in our home has also made it feel a bit more formal, which I really enjoy. I still get a daily dose of pattern from my Orla Kiely purse, but I’m really enjoying the gray and black solids for now.

  1. I am just so in love with LaurenAlane’s little birds!! If you haven’t checked them out you need to! Such a talented little lady!!

  2. I ran into your site a while back but someone just reminded me of it again, and I will be visiting more often. 🙂
    I recommended this color palette for a friend getting married, and I found those exact dresses for our bridesmaid dresses! They’re cute and very comfortable.
    You know what they say, “Great minds think alike.” and have great taste in style. 😉
    Keep up the fabulous work!

  3. oh no! i just posted about having to get some fabric from the patricia line (ikea) and now that you’ve shown these others i’m going to pine for them too.
    i’m just revisiting your blog and seeing so many nice things, thank you.

  4. I love that material, I got some from Ikea when I was last there (: I think I have a bag in my Etsy store that I made from it…it may have sold, I can’t remember (isn’t that terrible!). Good colors, I love great and yellow together!
