Some of my favorite packaging

I'm currently doing trend research for two long days of marketing meetings, and have come across so many different beautiful and interesting designs for bags and boxes.  From everything to small bags shaped like conversation hearts for Valentine's Day to gorgeously wrapped nesting boxes for Christmas or everyday. 

Below are some of my favorites, especially the eco-friendly kraft products...just love the simplicity of them.  I've also included some of my favorite retail packaging as well!!

Today's Beautiful Room

So I had made up my mind to switch over to a cooler palette in our new home, and I've really been loving grays, purples, blacks and whites together for a while now. 

However, while flipping through my new Pottery Barn catalog I absolutely fell in love with the feel of this room.  It's so warm and cozy and I can't ignore the fact that I've always been emotionally drawn to that.  It makes me think of long, warm summer nights with windows open, jazz playing and candles burning and the smell of delicious food that was cooked on the grill. 

No idea what we'll end up doing but I already know which end of the color spectrum Jay's always on... super warm :)

Happy Sunday!  Hope you all had a beautiful weekend.

My heart goes out to everyone who is involved in this awful disaster.  My thoughts and prayers are with them all.
