Impossible to match?

It might feel like a huge commitment to purchase a pillow with a photograph on it because your first reaction might be that it does not match with the rest of your living room. That was my first reaction too. However, these photo pillows are a lot more versatile than you think.  Don't be afraid to mix and match these colorful pillows with other patterned pillows. It will add a perfect pop of color to your living room. If the image is really heavy/strong you can opt for more muted or neutral colors surrounding the pillow so that no item is competing for visual attention.  The other route you can take is to use a bright solid colored pillow. The key here is to choose colors...

Your living room is missing something!

We've got a new throw pillow! You would be surprised to see how this pillow will match just about any living room. Sure, the detail is very intricate which might make you wonder if it matches the rest of your space, however, the key is the color scheme. The photograph has very neutral colors which helps it blend in to the rest of the colors in your living room.  Size: 16 in. x 16 in.  Material: 100% Polyester Pillow insert included Just as I mention in the product description, this is a photograph I took in Spain. I absolutely love the contrasting themes of the old antique clock with the modern background.

London Time

We had the opportunity to visit some friends in London not too long ago. It was such an incredibly sweet time catching up, drinking tea as most Londoners would do. The trip was such a pleasant surprise. During my previous visits, I went in larger groups which kind of limited me from getting to check out the local sites. We just saw the top tourist spots and called it a trip. Sadly, that left me with a little underwhelming taste of London. Flash forward to 2016, Michael and I went to visit some friends far from the tourist clichés and into the real London. I absolutely fell in love with it. We probably walked about 8 to 9 miles daily, which is...

Calendars for the holidays

Holidays are among us and it’s been a good, crazy, busy for Grapefruit Medley. I got a huge amount of orders for my calendars. It feels so amazing. I am so thankful that you guys are liking my products. It has been such a joy coming up with this calendar and choosing the right photography for it. All the photographs were taken during my various trips to Mexico. Being that it is such a beautiful country with all the colors and architecture, I go crazy taking pictures every time I visit. Back to creating the calendars - I love defying the odds and so it was such a huge plus that I enjoyed wood work. Rarely do you see a girl behind...

The beginning of Grapefruit Medley

Earlier this year, I came up with an idea to use my photography in a more interactive way.   I created greeting cards with my photography, as well as, cut and stain wood to make frames for the greeting cards. I thought this was a pretty cool gift idea because everyone likes receiving a greeting card or birthday card with a special message from a close friend. Sadly, most of those cards end up hidden in a drawer never to be seen again or tossed because you are the type of person that doesn't like clutter. Well, regardless of if you like to keep special things forever or are a clutter free person, receiving a card that can become part...
