Instagram Recap | Mar.

March was such a fun month! We kicked it off celebrating our anniversary at the sweetest B+B in Connecticut, celebrated Brantley’s 2nd birthday (crazy dog lady alert), saw Billy Joel in concert and hosted Easter!

With my clients, I worked on a few good projects, many details not pictured and maybe I need to be better at sharing these behind the scenes looks at what I’m working on (let me know if you like that kinda stuff on instagram), continued working away on #dbkproject1893 and had some fun with tile and textile planning.

It’s so fun to see all of these little insta-squares stacked up all together as a way of tracking the previous months events! What did your march in squares look like? Did you do anything fun or work on any exciting projects?? I can’t wait to keep sharing more of our life and projects and especially these monthly recaps!

As we move into April, I hope to be sharing more sunshine-y days and flowers mixed in with some completed projects and things in the works! Happy Spring! Remember to leave me a comment with your insta-name or the name of any accounts you think I should check out!

Instagram Recap | Feb.

I love looking back at what I’ve shared on Instagram (@designbykrystle). It is one of my favorite social media outlets and sharing moments and details through it is so much fun! A while back I did a recap of my Instagram posts, and I thought it would be fun to bring it back as a monthly thing… we’ll see how well that works out and if you guys like to see it.

Here’s a look at what I shared in February:

Lots of fun projects have been featured here this past month. Mostly interior design client projects that are in some phase or another, mixed in with a little food, and of course, the month wouldn’t be the same without an appearance from Brantley!

Man, I really love seeing these monthly collections. They make me fall hard for my career. I really am one of the lucky ones to be doing something I feel so passionately about.

Do you guys like seeing all of these pictures from the month pulled together like this? Have you tried taking a monthly look at your own feed to see if you see a common thread? Leave me a comment with your insta names, I love finding new accounts to follow, and if there is someone you really love following along with that you think I would like, leave their name too and I’ll add them too!

October Instagram Recap

I had seen this idea on another blog and thought I would bring it over to DBK since I tend to share a lot on Instagram that doesn’t ever make it to this space and I know a lot of my readers don’t cross over to my social media and vice-versa. So, here’s a look at our October through the eyes of the insta’ account!

I tried not to include too many things that were seen here so that you don’t have as much overlap, but no promises that you’ve not seen any of it before. If you don’t follow DBK on social media and you would like to, there are links at the end of this post.

What did your month look like on Instagram? leave a comment with your username and I will hope over and take a look. I loved putting together this round up, it gives a good look at my day to day life and makes me realize just how much I love not only doing what I do, but also capturing and sharing it! Well, my job, my pup, my hubby, living in Jersey City.. you get the idea from the images! I put a little description on all of the pics to decipher what’s going on so if you care to read through you can click on any of the images to scroll through the gallery with captions.

So, how was your October? I’d say, from the looks of it, mine was pretty great!

Five on Friday

1. I have been working hard to follow and participate with more blogs and people in the design community. It is a great way to find inspiration and make connections with people that are interested in the things that you are interested in. So today on instagram (@designbykrystle) I’m sharing four accounts that I love.

Instagram ff 2-20

@InteriorDesignCommunity is a great resource to find other designers/bloggers in this industry. They share inspiring people, spaces and quotes daily, and, if you are looking for more people to follow, they just posted a list of 100 interior-design blogs to follow (we are #55 on the list!).

@Nis5a is a kitchen and bath designer in Philadelphia that I randomly found on instagram a few months back. I love the design projects and details she shares, and I hope you do too!

@KristenFDavisDesigns works with colors, patterns, shapes and so much more, doing custom art and paint installations for clients and designers. Her insta-feed is always a great source of inspiration and admiration for me. You can find her blog here, too.

@EarnestHomeCo_ is a blogger I’ve followed in the background for a while, and have been trying to comment on more and more. She does beautiful work and just posted about her new home office here. Go check her out!

2. My hair is so long that yesterday’s sloppy top knot actually hurt my head. When I took my hair down at the end of the night, it has never felt so good. So! I am looking for a new do-I’m thinking of a long bob with minimal long layers around the front, and potentially even adding some highlights… care to weight in? (Pictures from pinterest.)

3. Today we have officially owned our condo for a year, which is incredible. It was a long and very trying process to get where we are, and we have had a love/hate relationship with our space, but it is mostly love and the space has really been transformed in the last year to really represent us! Can’t wait to bring you more projects from our tiny home 🙂

4. My childhood puppy is really really old. She turned 15 this past December and unfortunately her age is starting to wear on her. I wish I could jet off to Seattle to snuggle with her and soak up every last minute available, but it looks like it isn’t going to work out. Thank goodness for technology, my mom is going to Facetime with me so I can see her before it gets too bad. If you don’t know the love of a dog, it is one of the most unconditional loves you can experience, and that girl really has my heart. I’m thankful that P & I have our Brantley bub to cuddle with and take away some of the hurt.

5. This weekend marks the end of our January Cure. Yes, I do realize it is February, but when we went out of town in January, our cure never really got back on track. So, our dinner with friends is this weekend and next week I can share all of the progress we made around the house, as well as the details from our dinner!
