I first stumbled upon Perideau Designs a year ago after finding their organizing printables so helpful. Perideau Designs then became my daily go-to for all the fun, modern, and clean stationary designs offered. The woman behind this beautiful brand is Bridgett Edwards. She is a wife, mother, business owner, and all around extremely creative woman whose work I adore. I always wanted to reach out to her and ask for a q&a, and when I finally did she was so generous to reach back and agree!
What led you to create Perideau Designs?
I’ve always loved creating and drawing so after realizing planning weddings wasn’t my niche, I turned to creating accessories for parties.
As a paper lover myself, why did you choose paper as your medium?
I love the touch and feel and getting beautifully designed invitations and notecards in the mail.
Do you use paper more so than online apps to stay organized?
I tend to waiver between the 2. Right now I’m using digital apps like Things and Google calendar since they are both easy to sync between my desktop and iPhone. But I love a good ol’ fashion pen and notebook when brainstorming ideas.
How do you begin a “theme” for your party designs?
From my lovely customers. They always have the best ideas and are so creative.
Your pieces are so clean, modern, bright and colorful, what’s your favorite color?
Hands down green, hence the business name Perideau (a homophone of peridot, my green birthstone) : )
Do you ever feel “artist’s block”, and if so how do you overcome it?
All the time! I take it as a sign that I need a break from work and go play with my children, workout or design for fun.
How would you describe your style?
Simple, clean, modern and fun
What was the last thing that made you laugh out loud?
My family. We’re a bunch of goofballs.
You’re a very busy woman, how do you stay so organized and how does it help you achieve your success?
I don’t like to stay still. I need to have an agenda, a direction so to speak, to function. I tend to get “lost” if I go with the flow.
I discuss artist’s “creative spaces” a lot on the blog, can you describe yours and how you like to keep it?
We turned our bonus room into an office. I use 2/3 of the space and my husband uses 1/3. We painted the walls a khaki with a green accent wall. I need to work in an organized space so everything has it’s place. My workspace mimics my design aesthetic so it’s very inspirational.
Thanks again Bridgett!
