Renovating, moving, and decorating…all big projects. All very fun and very exciting!
I had the pleasure of being commissioned to do several paintings for the childrens’ rooms in a recent big project.
Here are the results…ladies first…
EL, the home owner, shared with me the fabric swatches for her daughter’s room, PL. We talked about things that PL loves, how her room would be arranged, and where she needed art. Below are three paintings we did for PL to go above an upholstered headboard.
This family loves to vacation at the beach, so we used starfish to compliment all the pink and green in this young lady’s new room. So bright and cheery.
PL’s younger brother, RL, is also a fan of family vacations at the beach. Again, we used swatches from the fabric selected for the room as a starting point…
..and decided upon a family painting to go along with this all-American boy bedroom.
I loved completing these paintings for EL. And love how they are now currently hanging.
I must give a compliment to the home owner and her designer, Holly Phillips, for the wonderful job they did creating rooms that will grow with these children. The fabrics and furnishings are perfect for these young ones, but they will also grow with the children beautifully. I have mentioned before that I am a big fan of real art for children. Original art, just like quality fabrics and furnishings, will grow with your child. Those navy and white striped headboards are perfect if you are 3, 13, or 30. Great for a boys bedroom, guest room, or even recovered many years down the road. The group of three starfish paintings look wonderful above the headboard, but they can always be used differently down the road. Keep two pink starfish together in a breakfast room or powder room. Send the green one off to PL’s first apartment. There are endless possibilities with good fabric, furnishings, and art.
