Now that we’ve packed up our festive holiday decor, our pads are looking a bit like they've been struck with seasonal affective disorder. No pretty lights, no heavenly-smelling pine wreaths — it's seriously sad. And since these frosty temps mean we'll be spending way more time indoors (thanks a lot, Mother Nature), turning our respective homes into cheerful, artsy retreats is a must.
So, you know that wall behind your couch that’s been screaming for a makeover? Or the space above your kitchen table that’s been lonely for way too long? We've found the solution for both. We're particularly fond of D.C. illustrator Elizabeth Graeber’s whimsical designs, which can turn boring into extraordinary — without spending a fortune.
Brighten up your casa with her fun prints, clever notecards, the adorable cocktail book she illustrated, or even some fanciful totes and wallets to take the merriment on the go. You can find Graeber's goods on her site, her Etsy store, and even on display at Tryst. But first, we got her to dish on her favorite drink recipes, artistic inspirations, and personal style. Quirky, meet cute!
