Ellie Snow is a graphic designer and the editor and founder of Mint, a daily design blog that focuses on art, weddings, graphic design, and products for the home. Like many bloggers, Ellie began Mint as a way to sort and save her favorite artists, designers, and online shops, but it quickly grew into a community of like-minded readers. After sharing her own wedding invitations, Ellie began receiving requests from other brides for custom invitation design, and her shop Hello Tenfold was born. It seemed like fate, since some of Ellie’s earliest memories are creating birthday cards and other stationery for various friends and family members. Today she splits her time between blogging, freelance design projects, and Hello Tenfold.
Maybe it’s because I’m a freelancing newbie (three months and counting!) and struggling with the inordinate amount of time I now spend in the house, but lately I’ve been itching for a little home makeover. For house inspiration and unique, handmade and vintage items, there is no better place to turn than Etsy. My dream house has crisp white walls and is a mix of mid-century modern aesthetic with bohemian touches and lots of art. Here are a few favorites!
[Handmade Walnut Side Table by blackelm, Block Printed Fabric Storage Bags by jezzeprints, Mid-Century Chairs from wrightathomevintage and Hand-Printed Fabric by Carly Schwerdt of umbrellaprints (for quick and easy DIY placemats or napkins!)]
[Porcelain Lace Wall Hanging by forestclearing (made by dipping hand-crocheted lace into porcelain), Beaded and Embroidered Afghan Textile Patch from rayela (I picked up something similar during my travels, and think these look beautiful mounted and framed), Beautiful Shade by resurface (made with a pattern generated from a photo of a street intersection), and Hangers with Hand-Knit Covers by strikk, because your closet should be pretty, too!]
Thanks for having me! Find me at Mint.
