Monday Muse: Bri Emery of Design Love FestApril 11, 2016
Our Monday Muses are women who have turned their passions into their careers. These inspirational ladies excel in their fields, and are great examples of how you too can turn your dreams into reality.
Why She Inspires Us
One look at Bri's blog Design Love Fest and you'll know why we're hooked - her effortlessly chic and bright signature look instantly brings a smile to your face. The art director-turned-blogger founded DLF in 2009 when she decided to simply do what made her happy, and the rest is history!
Her swoon-worthy DIYs are not only beautiful, but easy enough that anyone could do them. We love a good DIY project at Alice's Table -- especially when it involves flowers! Check out her cake decorated with edible flowers, her printable bouquet wraps, and her flower bomb prank! (PS - If anyone wants to do that, we volunteer our cars.)
Heart of Gold
Not only are her designs gorgeous, but they give back to the community. Right now at Target stores nationwide, you can find the Design Love Fest & Cheeky collaboration - a collection of disposable dinnerware in Bri's signature prints. We love this because for every product sold, Cheeky gives a meal to someone in need in the US. You'll feel good knowing that your little splurge made a difference!
Words of Wisdom
Here are a few quotes from interviews with Bri that we love!
"BE SURE. Confidence says so much. If you’re not sure, no one else will be sure about you.” from interview with DesignSponge, Feb. 2013
One of her five top design rules: "Bring the outdoors inside with houseplants, flowers by the bedside and succulents. They all add a liveliness to the space.” from interview with Barneys New York, March 2014
