Hey, I'm Tracey. The word kaleidoscope is derived from Greek words meaning observer of beautiful forms, and the intent of my blog is to be a kaleidoscope of all types of design that I love and which inspire me. I hope it will give you inspiration too.

why coolidge & elm?

I'm a southern gal. My three sisters and I grew up in a fun, creative and buzzing environment on Coolidge Avenue and later on Elm Street. I have wonderful memories of lots of crafty art projects, creative off, off, off Broadway play productions and inventive stores. Our creativity was strongly encouraged by our parents, and both of these childhood streets played a huge part in my desire to utilize my creativity and become a designer.

I love all types of design from whimsical invitations to yummy party creations & food presentations to beautiful furniture and home furnishings. I have worked as a graphic designer with my freelance business, tavadesigns, for many years but have recently begun designing invitations and paper goods which I love! My blog is a colorful kaleidoscope of all types of design that inspire me and I hope will give you inspiration as well.

Feel free to email me at tracey@coolidgeandelm.com to comment about the blog or about a custom project you might have.
