Oh! Brighter Days

See you this Saturday for the launch of Oh Brighter Days with Heima. 🙂  It’s a colorful collaboration between the Googly Gooeys & Heima–a quirky home & lifestyle store.

Heima Oh Brighter Days!But wait?  Where did it all begin? I’ve been such a fan of Heima for a long time now.  I don’t know how many parties I’ve actually attended and documented years ago.  People always ask me what I’m doing at the events or that if I’m representing a company.  Well, I’m just always there to enjoy myself–just happy to check out the works of other artists and happy that there is a shop that understands my love for colors.

I never thought that one day, I would actually be collaborating with this design group!

Fast forward to late 2014, we started talking about a collaboration and yesterday, it’s as if all the patterns just finally came to life after a really fun photo shoot with the Heima team!

Here’s the Sunny Side Table & I can’t actually wait to share the rest of the photos with ya! Then again, you’ll have to see the collection for yourself on Saturday! 🙂

Coming up with patterns was a personal journey for me.  At first, I was excited and overwhelmed with the plethora of choices in terms of medium, execution et cetera.  I tried experimenting and I kept on revising my style only to find that I’ll just go back to my favorites: brush strokes & a vibrant palette. 🙂

If you’ve been following @GooglyGooeys on Instagram, you may have probably seen a sneak peek at some of my experiments.  This is only the tip of the iceberg. 😀

At the same time though, I’m really grateful for this opportunity to be able to experiment with a new medium & surface! 🙂

I really hope to see you guys this Saturday.  Heima Brixton will be open from 4pm-10pm and just feel free to drop by anytime.  Don’t forget to bring your friends & relatives with ya! 🙂  Set a date with your friends and relatives at the Kapitolyo area.  There are a lot of really good resto’s in the area too!
