Carson Ellis-1-Design Crush


I’m been a far of Carson Ellis since first laying eyes upon a cover illustration she did for an album by her husband’s band, The Decemberists. But just over the past week or so a few friends have mentioned her and work to me, and in doing so made me realize that I’d somehow never written about her and her folksy style. Most recently Carson’s released a debut illustrated book focused on the concept of home, all homes. You can pick up your very own copy of the aptly titled Home here.

    Beautiful! I love the restrained color palette and how intricate these illustrations are. These images you want to linger over, discover new details that you missed the first time.
