one of my favorite things about what i do is meeting fellow designers, artisans and tastemakers. a while back i met artist kayce hughes. kayce lives in nashville, she is good friends with my friend sarah bartholomew and my friends genifer and ben sohr.

kayce and i have something in common. she’s an artist and a fashion designer, i’m an interior designer and i dabble in fashion a little too. having these dual interests connects us, but what i really think connects us more is the optimistic tone of what we do.

kayce’s art is graphic, vibrant and full of life. the colors and the strokes automatically put you in a good mood. i like art that does that and i like artists that create art that smiles.

thank you kayce for creating for me so many happy and beautiful pieces of art- everyone who sees the art is grateful and smiling! XO

do you like to smile? follow kayce on instagram here.
