Hello and also goodbye for now… I’m signing off until Monday but then I’ll join you again for another week of inspiration and pretty things to make your week a nice one.
The art shown above is by Australian illustrator Nikki Catalano who sells her work in her Big Cartel shop. It’s so dreamy and detailed, I love the collages — especially Girl On The Mountain Top — isn’t that so pretty? You know what is so funny though? So much of the art that I’m drawn to is so youthful you know? I am careful to not display all of my art everywhere in the house because I fear it will end up looking like Holly’s Playland. What to do? Well, my idea is to show the illustrative, dreamy stuff that I love in the guest bedroom on an art wall where I can place the work as part of a gallery display but also in a room that is off from the main rooms so that my husband doesn’t have to be exposed to my dream-like art every day and so that I can go into the guest room which will double as a place for me to relax and read and find quiet inspiration.
What do you think? Where do you display your more youthful + pinky pastel artwork?
Well dear friends, I will be shopping and decorating and cleaning my home all weekend but I’ll meet you back here soon enough… much peace and joy to you. xo
