Remember how I was re-doing Audrey’s room? Here is the cute inspiration board:
Well, it’s still unfinished.
I made some progress back in March, but since then, nothing has happened. I am waiting on the biggest part of the project which is a whole wall of built-ins to go around the window. I have it designed in my mind but I haven’t pursued anything because I know what I want will be more than I want to spend on having it built. We could try to do it ourselves, but again, that takes time and we don’t have a ton of that laying around right now either. And then there is the option of doing a good ikea hack and building in pre-made bookshelves (something like this) but I haven’t found items with the correct dimensions for the space. So that’s what’s holding me up. One of these days I’ll figure it out.
In the meantime, I’ve been collecting artwork to hang on her walls. Audrey is fun and full of personality and I’d love for her room to reflect some of that through a whole wall filled with art.
The collection started with Miss Paige’s (as Audrey calls her) horse canvas.
Paige has such a beautiful collection of photographs-turned-canvas prints to choose from so I let Audrey take her pick and she selected the horse (whom she named Clover). Any of the prints would have been beautiful, but I’m so glad she chose sweet clover.
Paige has offered JDC readers a discount on all of her gorgeous canvases – hop over to her shop to see them all.
We also chose a few favorites from Minted.
This illustration reminds me of something out of the Madeline books – so cute. Adding in a graphic black & white drawing will work well for tying in the striped rug.
And this is a fun print as well with the personalized name and pretty watercolor look. I ordered it with the frame for only a few dollars more and it was well worth it.
Minted has nailed the market for holiday cards, but did you know they also have a great selection of artwork? Lots of choices for kids and adults alike. I also like that minted supports independent designers and gives them a platform to showcase their artwork.
From now until September 21st, take $25 off your order of $200 on any art orders.
And, of course, I’ll be using some of my own designs in Audrey’s room.
You can see all of the artwork in my shop here and take 15% off your order with code GRATITUDE. Also, shipping is always on us!
I’ll keep adding cheerful artwork to her collection and someday (hopefully soon!) I’ll get the whole gallery hung on her walls. I’ll be sure to post photos along the way.
