Add Life :: a design philosophy by Justina Blakeney

I found this amazing quote on Pinterest and it couldn't be more true. I love that it actually includes the source and even links to the website. Isn't it great when that happens? Unlike the emerald bow tow pumps I fell in love with that I can't for the life of me track down. This was one of those times where Pinterest functioned as it was intended; I find a beautiful quote, pin it, link to the designer's website, and bam - I've discovered a new designer and blog that inspires me. The Justina Blakeney blog does just that. Justina is a designer, author, blogger, and stylist based in L.A. and I love her creative blog design, colorful content, and most of all her design philosophy.

I believe that good design increases quality of life. I believe in vintage, organic and handmade. I believe in the healing power of plants, good light and fresh air.  I believe that objects carry the stories of their makers–so things that are made with love, care and good materials bring those qualities with them where-ever they go.  I believe in recycling. I believe in diversity. I believe that design can save the world.
