Inaluxe is Kristina Sostarko and Jason Odd and together they are one heck of a design duo. I’m drawn to their cards and giclee prints in  strong, vibrant colors and I adore their latest card that says…






I love
the way you smell
your smiling eyes
sleeping in with you
your taste in music
your big bushy beard
the way you never laugh (loudly) when I slam into glass storefront doors
the fact that even though I have the scariest morning hair you still think I’m the most beautiful woman in the world.

Cute, isn’t it?

    I love the soft chalky color palette from your images.
    The illustrations/prints are inspiring as well.
    Great inspiration for my children’s art shop.

    Inauluxe are one of my favorites! I have the fox postcards and just adore them.

    They also have an extremely cute new home. Their style doesn’t end in the studio.

    I love! the color palette of these designs. The designs themselves are beautiful ( I am drawn to the beakers?) in the top left corner. I am always in awe of how artists put together the colors they work with, and how those colors, as much as a smell or a taste, can conjure up memories.
    On the subject of design, Congrats to you! I came across Decor8 in Orla Kiely Pattern book.

    Holly…I adore these cards/prints …the strong graphic patterns and bold colors. I especially love the poem..who can’t relate to scary morning hair:)

    I love their work too – I’ve bought a set of postcards intending to frame them and hang them in our living room once I get my gallery wall put together. The colours are wonderful and they hit the combination of modern and retro-modern on the head, if you ask me.

    The bird images are so sweet!

    And all the illustrations are lovely … they kind of have a retro vibe, maybe?

    I have a serious crush on Inaluxe. There’s something about her color palette and geometry that just resonates with me and makes my heart skip a beat every time I see one of her pieces.
