Just My Type} Daisy Chain Interiors Logo!

Hi guys! I’m uber proud to present and share here today the new custom logo I designed for Daisy Chain Interiors. Daisy was after a logo that was feminine, fresh and chic to represent her interior design business and we worked together to develop this wee gem! With an international qualification from the Institute of Interior Design, talented Daisy describes her personal style as traditional, french country with a touch of industrial & minimalism. She’s also just about the sweetest woman you’ll ever meet! You can check out her website here.

If you’re considering a new logo for your business, feel free to email me for a chat and a brainstorm! x

Just My Type} Meredith & Andrew’s Wedding Stationery

Hi all! I hope you are surviving this cold snap we have been experiencing (except you, winterless Northland…). We are hunkered down here in Christchurch, with the wind blowing a gale and the hills in the distance newly snow capped. So, to warm us up a wee bit I have some gorgeous photos of Meredith & Andrew’s stationery suite, from their 2014 summer wedding in Taupo! A big thank you to Meredith and Andrew for sharing these images, and a big thank you to Kate Grewal Photography for taking them!

Just My Type} Let’s go 2015!


Oh wow, hello April…! Already? Really? Yes, this is happening – It’s April, the fourth month of 2015 already, and I’m only just getting a calendar. Slack, I know. But it’s because I’ve spent the last four months in a personal whirlwind and hiding away from emails, and phone calls and the lure of the computer as I battle my biggest challenge yet – being a mumma-bear. It’s a life changer, this procreation business. It’s hard work and a steep learning curve, but worth every sleepless night, shower-less day and frustrated tear (lots and lots of tears, actually). Add to that relocating to the other end of the country and you’ve just about got yourself a grade 5 cyclone. Now, it’s finally time to un-batten the hatches and breathe in some of that Autumn air, and boy is it fresh down here in Christchurch!

So, I raise my soy latte to 2015, and also to Chantel Petty for this super cute free printable calendar she hand-lettered. You can find it here to download (just in case you’re a bit behind this year too!).

Just My Type} Blush & Ivory Wedding Stationery Suite

It’s here! I finally get to share this gorgeous ivory and blush wedding stationery suite with you guys. Watercoloured roses in vintage hues give this kraft paper and ivory wedding suite a whimsical romantic vibe. The bride and groom were married on his parents stud farm, with their alfresco reception dinner served at long tables on the homestead lawn. The blush and mint colour scheme pairs perfectly with the kraft paper envelopes (how darling is the floral wreath?) and name tags. I just love how printing in colour onto kraft paper enhances the vintage feel!

A big thank you to the happily married couple, Margaux and Simms. You were an absolute pleasure to work with!

Just My Type} 10,000 pins on Pinterest!

Oh my goodness, I can’t quite believe it – last week I pinned my 10 thousandth pin on Pinterest! I’m a wee bit unsure as to whether this is a good thing… Or a borderline obsession! Pinterest is a wonderful tool and I recommend it to all my clients to help them get going with discovering the style they are after, and finding ideas and inspiration for their big day. Did you know you can make secret boards? They are great if you want to keep your wedding gown style a surprise! So, let’s go with the positive and celebrate this ‘digital visual collecting’ milestone. Cheers to 10,000 pins – here’s my top 10 fave from todays lunchtime session, feast your eyes x
