a new blog for me !

With two blogs currently to keep up with, one personal and one for my wedding planner biz, I was still feeling the tug to venture into the creative world of design and color. I love the creativity that's possible with this blogging venue and can't seem to get enough of it! I admit, I'm like a frustrated graphic artist with no job to do or client to work for, so... you all can be my clients!
And now to introduce my latest project...

I love to make Inspiration board collages on my wedding blog, but I know that's a limited clientele, so now I'll make them of everyday things for everyday people.
As I wrote on my opening post...

"Color sets a mood and gives an artist unlimited means of expression. Color can be magical. Where composition and technique connects with our intellect, color touches our heart". -Suzie Short

I hope I can touch your heart and you enjoy visiting Hue New, and you come back often!

your new fall handbag

Shades of purple are all over the fashion world this fall.
I love this flap pocket hobo bag by B. Makowsky.
You can find it at Nordstrom for $248
or how about this Elliot Lucca drawstring bucket bag on sale for $178
or this Kate Spade Westbury drawstring opus bag for $395

but Kate... what were you thinking here:
the 'sherwood-ida' shopper for $425

what are you carrying this fall?

what style are you?

Click the link here, fill in your name and zip code, and take the HomeGoods style quiz to find out:
HomeGoods StyleScope

here's my results...

Sjn you are an Elegant Classic

You have a refined sensibility with an appreciation for history and tradition in your furniture and your rooms. You value beauty, things that are well crafted, and family heirlooms. You are visually sensitive and understand how symmetry and a formal layout give order to a room, and hence your home is refined and calming. You are not taken in by the trends of the moment. You go for things with a timeless appeal, and appreciate old-fashioned virtues like manners and handwritten notes and making a home that is welcoming for others.

You value serenity. While there are probably a lot of interesting things in your home, they are joined by your taste or a certain palette that keeps them in harmony. You appreciate the beauty in simple forms. Whether fancy or plain, you appreciate things that are well made and function as well as they look. You also have a strong respect for the environment and craftsmanship. You care about how things are made, and how they are used.

what's your style?
