Somebody's Watching Me | Portraits on the Wall


As I have mentioned before I have a wide appreciation for many art styles & genres, but I have always been a sucker for a beautiful portrait.  A classic vintage portrait just adds a layer of sophistication to a space, while a modern interpretation can add instant character.  I love incorporating portraits into a space to add a touch of history & mystery.  The portraits I usually come across are from flea markets or thrift stores, so there is little to no idea who the image is based on or the actual story behind it.  I find that makes the piece a bit more romantic.  I also think that the saying about letting the art you choose speak to you, couldn't be more apropos when it comes to portraits.  They all aren't works of art, but when you find the ones you love, you will know instantly.

We have recently added a large portrait into our own home (I can't wait to share it!) and I love the feel it had given our space.

Do you love Portraits as much as I do?!  






Fresh Style Magazine Feature


I'm so pleased to share that one of my all time favorite projects is currently in Fresh Style Magazine.  For those of you that may be new, or may not remember... this project was done for Room Service Atlanta.  RSA is an amazing charity founded by Erika Ward and Dayka Robinson that brings creatives in Atlanta together to share their talents with those in need.  Dozens of designers took over two housing units in the Spring of 2013 & each were given a single dorm.  These dorms are used to house Foster Children that are in the transition of taking on adulthood & learning to live a successful independent life.  Each of the designers donated all of their time & talent, and we literally poured our hearts into each of these rooms.  It meant so much to me to be able to complete a project like this & this would have never been possible without the help of so many of you that donated to the project as well.

Along with all of the donations, I made over furniture items I had in storage, bought for next to nothing at thrift stores & picked up off the side of the road.  The room came together beautifully & I hope it has served as a fresh & vibrant space for the young women who have lived there since this space was created.

A big thank you to Fresh Style for the beautiful feature!!!  You can look for Fresh Style at a store near you, or download the digital version here!! It is a beautiful new magazine showcasing many talented artists & designers.

Here are a few of the posts I shared while completing this project last year:
