About





Brittany Watson Jepsen here. I grew up teething on the seaweed of Southern California though I preferred reading and creating in the great indoors. My mom’s favorite quote was “a creative mess is better than tidy idleness” and so my childhood was spent creating art work, music, and yes, lots of messes. On track to becoming a museum curator I was haunted by those creative messes and enrolled in permanent “creative mess status” otherwise known as a master’s in interior design at the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, DC. I graduated in 2010 after spending summers working with professional creative messers including Jonathan Adler and Celerie Kemble in NYC. There I designed products for Tiffany and Co., Schumacher, and Dempsey and Carroll and helped create beautiful interiors for fancy schmancy penthouses. The summer of 2009 I studied textile design and wrote for design*sponge. I married Paul in September of 2010 (perhaps you're here because you saw pictures of our wedding?) and moved to Copenhagen. We have since moved back to 'Merica--Provo, Utah to be exact--where I can currently be found crafting up a storm in our little home at the base of the Rocky Mountains and staring in front of a computer screen blogging for this here blog. Check out some of my projects here
