Ronald McDonald — Wylie House Grand Opening

Ampersand Design Studio

One of our biggest dreams when we started Ampersand was to be able to give back to the world in some small way. We were honored when we were approached by the incredibly talented, Jennifer Bertrand, to donate art for the brand new Ronald McDonald House in Kansas City.  As you will see in the video below, Jennifer, who designed it along with a team of generous volunteers, wanted the house to feel "like a hug." We have to say, mission accomplished. The house is filled to the brim with art, decor and details that make it feel like a refuge for families who need that hug most of all. It is the definition of creativity, inspiration and love.

Ampersand for Red Dirt Shop

Ampersand Design Studio

We are so excited to announce this exciting partnership with Red Dirt Shop!

We couldn't be more proud to be a small part of the good that Red Dirt Shop is doing in the world. They are a Kansas City company, run by two women (our favorite kind of business, of course) making a HUGE impact through their partnership with water.org

Be sure to click here to read and get inspired by their mission! Here's just a little snippet of what they're about:

"Access to clean water not only keeps everyone healthier, but the time saved not collecting water allows women to have income producing jobs, and girls to stay in school. You know what that does? Disrupts the cycle of poverty.

We believe that choosing products from social impact companies sparks exponential change that individuals couldn't achieve alone. A portion of each Red Dirt sale is given to help build wells in countries like Ethiopia, India, Haiti and Uganda. Every five cases sold gives one person clean water for life. It’s goods for good and it’s how Red Dirt partners with YOU to change the world!"

Can you see why were are humbled to be a part of something so great?! So, head straight there and pick up our limited-edition iPhone case right now and feel good about the impact you'll make on someone's life!

 

on my mind: effortless spring

Ampersand Design Studio

Spring for me is going to be insanely busy, so a look I can throw together without thinking about it will be key (I tend to wear the same outfit way too often and this look would become a great "uniform"). A cute scarf like this one from fashionABLE, (a company which creates sustainable business for women in Africa.) is great for when the unpredictable spring weather takes a chilly turn. I also love to mix it up with fragrance when the seasons changes and this one has notes of nightblooming flowers, honeydew and Seville oranges, among other things.

baby & kids: lucky boy sunday

Ampersand Design Studio

I don't even know what to say about Lucky Boy Sunday. The cuteness has rendered me (almost) speechless. What I wouldn't give for that blanket and...all of it, really. We're not gonna sugarcoat it here, these lovelies are spendy. The upside (along with getting to stare lovingly at your new favorite object in your home) is that they are produced in Bolivia by talented women who live in an extremely poor area. They are given a good job and a fair price. Please be sure to read the "about" section of Camilla and Camilla's website (the creators of Lucky Boy Sunday). It's charming. Lucky Boy Sunday is available in the US through Huset and Thumbeline.
