HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE SPRING BUSINESS, BRANDING, AND SOCIAL MEDIA WORKSHOP

Paige Hull

With the fall edition of our Business, Branding, and Social Media Workshop series just around the corner, we thought we’d revisit our spring workshop. Co-hosted by Camila Alves McConaughey of Women of Today, the spring 2019 BBSM Workshop had a special focus on social media marketing and content creation. In addition to panel discussions, Q&A time, and the opportunity to network with one another the panelists, workshop participants were treated to a beverage and appetizer demo--complete with a break to taste all the goodies!--and got to take advantage of the spectacularly styled space to get started on their own content creation.

FIFTY SHADES OF...WHITE?! OUR GUIDE TO FINDING THE PERFECT SHADE OF WHITE PAINT

Paige Hull

It’s no secret that Smoot and I love designing with white paint. While white can seem like a no-brainer, there are actually hundreds of paint shades available--each with its own subtle variation in undertone. Pure white has no hue and reflects all visible wavelengths of light, so white paint will be very “reactive” to its environment. Now that we’ve completed four cottages with white interior paint, we want to share a few of the things we’ve learned along the way. Read on to learn our tips for choosing the perfect white for your space!

ENDING THE STIGMA: MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH

Paige Hull

With Mental Health Awareness Month coming to a close, Smoot and I want to share a little more about our personal experiences with this important issue. I’ll preface that we were inspired to share our stories from the brave work of Val Van Galder, one of Smoot’s longtime friends from Los Angeles. Val’s passion project, Depressed Cake Shop, aims to raise awareness about mental health by partnering with local bakeries to create “depression-themed” treats—cookies and cupcakes with greyscale frosting. The goodies are meant to start conversations, promote awareness about self-care and mental-health resources, and raise funds for local mental health organizations like the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).

We wanted to give our family a weekend retreat to enjoy the slower pace and simpler pleasures of country living, and we wanted to embark on a project that would allow us to fully stretch our creative muscles.
