two...


oh my... state of joy has turned two!!


two years, 141 posts bringing together images, thoughts, design and people; to inspire, to create, live by, laugh with or simply bring joy... looking back at the year gone by, I thought I’d note a few topics that have stood out on state of joy.

it is without question that state of joy this last year has been dominated by my love of instagram. chantelle ellem of fat mum slim is partly to blame [?] for the addiction through her 'photo a day' challenge. the instagram community of like minded people has been a complete surprise;  a massive source of inspiration and a huge amount of encouragement.

this past year also cemented my love for interiors that are everything industrial / vintage chic. there was plenty of posts that paid homage to this mix n’ match type of design. my beautiful bathroom was completed with many thanks to my amazing father. i spent a fair amount of time photographing and reflecting on family. i was fortunate enough to meet and interview some amazing people [hello akira!!]. there was also opportunity to travel for work to singapore to see what’s happening in the east. and i finally launched the state of joy website. all in all it has been a pretty great year...

to celebrate turning TWO and to thank those who have read, "liked", shared and commented on my blog and facebook page there is a special anniversary giveaway. look out for details on mondays post… x
