Inspiration Out & About: Mall of America

Last Friday evening, we headed to the Mall of America (MOA) to check out a new restaurant. While walking around before our dinner reservation, we came across some gorgeous design inspiration throughout the mall.

The first installation that we stumbled upon was this gorgeous paper hearts display in the Swatch store. I adore the bright, bold color palette and the paper layers that make up each individual heart. I'll definitely be saving this color palette as inspiration for my design projects.


It's no secret that I have a passion for lettering, and this quirky lettering on the entrance window of Banana Republic caught my eye. I love the gray color and the simple lettering that mimics that of a quick jot with a marker.

After dinner, we continued to browse the mall--as we were walking along the first floor, DavidsTea caught my eye! These camel illustrations filled with bold patterns were so fun! 

As we browsed around inside of the shop, so much of their packaging caught my eye. I absolutely adore Valentine's Day, so their seasonal teas were right up my alley! Pinks, Reds, patterns, and gold foil, oh my! 

Here I am swooning over the pretty patterns on this packaging. I was completely in my element inside of this store! 

This color wheel of teas was so pretty--I am truly a marketer's dream.

I loved admiring the clean and simple illustrations on these seasonal packages of tea! I left the store that evening feeling so inspired by the gorgeous color palettes, patterns, and illustrations that made up the seasonal tea packaging at DavidsTea! 

Are you a tea fan? I'm more of a coffee person, but I do enjoy fruity-flavored teas on occasion!
