Workspaces, Made in the USA and Shopping the World

The other day I came across this photo of designer Kristin Albers office space and was captivated.  I usually lean towards bold, fun colors in my work space but I really felt a connection with the monotone color palette.  The space feels cozy and totally relaxing with a simple sophistication to it.

In doing a little research about this office space I discovered that all the binders, which I originally thought had been wrapped in Kraft paper, were actually products made by a company right here in the USA.

Guided Products makes simple, durable, reusable and beautiful binders, folders, business cards, labels and iPad cases. And the company has a great business philosophy.

When I started looking for information on Kristin Alber I learned that she is pretty amazing designer and business woman.  In 1999 Kristin and her husband founded the store Domestic Bliss in Mesa, Arizona and have since gone on to establish FOUND Design Co. a second store which sells a curated collection of home finds.  Kristin is also the talent behind ReStyleSource.com which is a national guide to local shops and restaurants plus a blog featuring amazing content on interiors, DIY projects, fashion, food, entertaining and parties!  You can read about RestyleSource here.

The Domestic Bliss store is one of most beautiful stores I’ve come across in a long time and I haven’t even seen it in person.  The store is filled it with an amazing collection of vintage and new items and is expertly merchandised with lifestyle vignettes and creative displays.  I could go on and on about this store but I’ll let these photos speak for themselves.
