A Note from the Editor

There’s something special about a change in seasons. The grass is literally greener, birds are singing, everything around you is suddenly full of and bursting with life. Even the wind itself seems different: lighter, warmer and smelling of flowers from your neighbor’s garden. It’s truly one of my favorite times of the year and one of the reasons I’m so excited by this latest issue. Taking into account our favorite parts of spring, we challenged our designers to create stunning pieces that embodied the season.
From the lightweight and colorful scarves featured in the Spring Forward section, to the trendy Cacti-inspired projects included in our Cactus Makes Perfect round up, you’ll find bright pieces for both your home and your wardrobe.

Seeing all of these designs together for the first time, we can see why this vibrant shade has captured our hearts for a very long time.
