The party is what’s happening in my head every day when I wake up. It’s a painting party in my brain, or a furniture arranging party daydream, and it’s only me and Joey. And it’s actually fun. Both of the homes we have bought have very little in common, but one thing I noticed right away is the “country blue” paint in Atlas’ room, the kitchen, and the mudroom. Our old house had the same blue. And then you know that kind of happy yellow? Well, a lot of that happened in too, and this house has beige everywhere. None of these are my favorite. I have seen them work well in some situations, but with our stuff, and our natural light, they all make me comfortable and crazy enough to have parties in my head.
Since Atlas’ room is the most set up, we picked out his paint, and are going with a crispy white and a lot of art on the walls. Things are still primarily white with pops of blues, but this time we are adding a little more color to the art.
Some old friends are making a come back, and some new one’s are very welcome to join in. I just ordered the poloriod heart print and constellation watercolor looking one from Minted, and they should be here in a few days. I didn’t know they did art, and was pleasantly surprised at the selection. I have already picked some faves out for the master as well. I got them framed because I know if I didn’t, they would hang around for months before getting to them.
The whale is from Coral & Tusk, and I scored at at Renegade last summer in Brooklyn. The “I Love my Family” and Owl were both an Etsy find. Remember I made that “A”? It didn’t get destroyed in the move. And of course, the baby porcupine which took center stage in the old nursery, is now becoming part of the gallery wall. He’s from Animal Print Shop, and has ears like an elf.
We have also been
obsessively hoarding shopping the amazing flea’s and vintage shops in Nashville and have already filled up our storage unit. I haven’t even set up to work with new clients, but I have some much great stuff I may just start grabbing strangers on the street to ask them if I can come in and see how my new campaign desk find looks in their home office. The people here are so nice, someone is likely to say “yes”.
One find is this HUGE “Admit One” ticket art. It’s an actual huge ticket framed. I am so excited about this. It was $40. I couldn’t believe it, I had to have it. We are still deciding where the moose is going, but I think he would have fun with these creatures we have collected.
Where do you get art for your home? I would love to learn about more unique spots (especially if they come framed!), and I am sure our reads would too. xxoo
