Mother Teresa, Turquoise And How Our Design Team Works




At times it is easy to take a person we work with closely for granted.  This is especially true when a team works so well together.  Today we share how Mother Teresa, and the color turquoise, remind us how well we two designers feed off each other.

Happy Motivational Monday!



The Universal Color!

No other color is up for interpretation as greatly as the color turquoise.  From the brightest sea greens to the more murky sea blueish browns, this color is one we all see differently.  Very much like how Kristen and I approach our projects.  Each in unique ways, using each others strengths, to the ultimate, personal design for our clients.

If you have been following LBD for any length of time, you most likely picked up on the fact that food photography is a favorite color inspiration source for me.  Like this one shared by a fellow blogger, pineconesandacorns.   The turquoise table top grabs us and begs us to take a closer look at this beautiful soup!


Since working with Kristen, I’ve learned to pause and appreciate her love of fashion and how she uses wardrobe combinations to inspire some of her designs.  Recently, another fellow blogger, Jodie’s Touch Of Style, posted this photo taken by her talented hubby, Rob Filogomo.


Writing a blog is time consuming and can be mechanical.  Honestly, somedays the topics feel like the same ideas just said in different ways.  Just about the time I want to toss in the towel and take a break, Kristen will take an idea and run with it.  Let’s enjoy more!




Yes, turquoise works so well with everything!  A rich warm tan sitting on a black and white bench, gold bangles and vintage watches, pinky-purple sunglasses, white lacey tops, blonde shorts and leafy patterns.  The beauty of all the wonderful hues of this color palette is they look totally different when dusk turns to an inky night.

  1. I’m going to remember this for our new place. I think I need to embrace the touch of turquoise!!
    PS…Thanks for the feature!

  2. I love turquoise! I also love that picture of Jodie!! She and her photographer husband have gotten very good at setting up these pictures. I might be a little biased but I don’t think so!!
