Mondays, Maggie Muses: The Geo Trend

Hi, I’m Maggie. My husband (Legh) and I own re-souL.   I like to “muse” about things that inspire me.  Especially on Mondays.

The influence of geometry has taken a strong hold over art, fashion, interiors, and quite frankly design in general.  Just take a look at these images and you’ll see its pretty hard to avoid identifying this trend.  I heart it! I love the strong lines and the colors.  the patterns and shapes speak to my modernist sensibilities.  Here are some of my favorite geo-things.

Mondays, Maggie Muses: Geometrics

ge̊o̊met̊rics – n. 1. Geometric qualities or properties. 2. A pattern or design characterized by the use of geometric figures.

I am definitely staring to see a pattern here.  In all honesty, it took me awhile to warm up to…. but now I  have a full blown geometric crush!

Mondays, Maggie Muses – Paper Art

Hi, I’m Maggie. My husband (Legh) and I own re-souL.   I like to “muse” about things that inspire me.  Especially on Mondays.


I have a thing for paper. Especially white paper. If you have been in our shop,  you’ll find evidence of this in the windows, vases and displays with various paper crafts I have done myself throughout the store.  However, I am a complete novice and these folks take paper crafts to a whole new level! I am definitely not worthy.  Here are some of my favorites.
