i absolutely love decorating. i always imagine in another lifetime, i would live out my dream of being an interior designer. alas, all i have at my fingertips for now are paints, paper, and a ton of frames i've collected over the years, so i've decided to live out my fantasy via blog. isn't that what all good bloggers do any way? whenever i paint a new piece, i actually kind of imagine it in a super fancy space, flocked with gorgeous furniture and amongst luscious fabrics. it's almost as if the room i imagine the painting in emerges simultaneously with the painting itself, so, here goes pulling together imaginary rooms for you to enjoy!
for my painting "peony" i picture it being the bright accent in the room. i really love silvers and grays with my pieces because i've always felt that the sharp metallic hues give the soft watercolor a harder and more sophisticated edge.
you can find all these pieces via the links below!
lately i've been very inspired by the abstract art i've been finding out there. i love the way bold colors and shapes can transform the mood of a room and lighten up the gloomiest of days. i've found some amazingly bright pieces over on great.ly, so i've gathered them added them to my boutique! you can grab all these lovelies for your own space here.
moving is a lot more stressful than i imagined. now that my wee little business is the size of a 10 ft truck, it wasn't exactly a week long process. i think this month has been the first time (since october!) that i'm feeling like i actually *live* here, and not just inside of a cardboard box fort (although box forts can be fun).
i finally have had time to make some plans and think about what i want to accomplish for the year, all while actually decorating a little bit. here are some snaps from my new life up here in jersey city :)
(the prints in the first photo are from the lovely clare elsaesser. i am thrilled to have such a grown up bedroom here!)
(you can also snag the white peacock feather in my shop - prints and original are available)
i'm excited to have a calm little snow day (even if the blizzard wasn't as major as they expected!) lately i've been painting with lots of bright colors, but i have always enjoyed working in black and white as well. check out some of my newest paintings, and enjoy 40% off today and tomorrow with code SNOWY.
you can find the original paintings and prints in several sizes of the new paintings up on maiautumn.com
i've been busy working on lots of new illustrations and having fun cooking, so it was only natural to start thinking about creating a series of food prints! i'm also having a 40% off sale - use code YUM on maiautumn.com this weekend! :)
