Brittany Watson Jepsen – “Creative mess is better than tidy idleness”
When asked what she always bought home from her travels, the answer was an illustrated children’s book. And where would she most like to travel… Vienna to dress up in full costume and take part in “The Sound of Music Singalong Tour”. With answers like that it is easy to see where the whimsical comes in to Californian designer and blogger, Brittany Watson Jepson’s, creations. I also love her mums favourite quote…”a creative mess is better than tidy idleness”….. I must try that one when the dining room table looks like an explosion in a fabric factory.
Taking these words of wisdom literally, Brittany has spent childhood through to adulthood creating artwork and music, designing for Tiffany and Co, writing for Design Sponge and indeed her own blog “The house that Lars Built” to name but a few.
In amongst all of this Brittany has a way with paper which I just love, and I have fallen in love with the oversized paper flowers which are the perfect way to add a little whimsy and colour to a room.
…Loving her display at a Danish Embassy function……. how good would this look for a wedding.
These flower creations first came about after Brittany had one as her bouquet at her own wedding (See header photo).
And for those of you who love to make a “creative mess and leave behind your tidy idleness” (I can see I am going to get a lot of use out of this quote), then you should look no further that Brittany’s fun little DIY projects such as making a snow dome cake topper, or a Bouquet with a little difference… who says baubles are just for christmas!!!!
Let me know what you think…. meanwhile on with the colourful journey…………
