Cottage Journal Feature

My friend, Amanda Louise is at it again! She recently had a house she decorated a few years back published in The Cottage Journal.  The house features some of my paintings, so I wanted to share some of the photos.  Here is the Master Bedroom.  Amanda Louise had me create the custom painting over the bed based off of the colors in the rug, pillows, and bedding.  and here is a detail shot for a closer look  Here is a shot of a really fun gallery wall that Amanda Louise put together: she has such a singular style when it comes to grouping work. (My small landscape is on the lower right hand side in the floater frame.) Thank you...

One Room Challenge Final Week

Here we are: the final week of the Spring 2018 One Room Challenge! I have had so much fun designing my almost three year old's room and making it a 'big girl room' that I hope she enjoys it for years to come!  Liv and George wearing their new cute pajamas from The Horseshoe Crab - they are the ultimate in monogramming and I can not recommend them enough!  Perhaps because my studio tends to be wildly colorful, my home's interior is a little more placid and crisp.  But I wanted my daughter's room to be anything but that. It truly was the most fun space to create and I just had the best time working with all the color.  Liv...

One Room Challenge Week Five!

This week for the One Room Challenge I am taking tons of art I have collected over the years and been gifted by friends and making a fun gallery wall in Liv's room.  I have incorporated in Three Dimensional Pieces from Gray Garden Designs Paper Mache Collection, a JuJu Mask I created for a previous One Room Challenge, some pieces from my wildly talented friend, Miles Purvis, and some other cool finds I've stumbled across.  I had to call in the reinforcements to help me, so I looped in my gal Amanda Louise to help me place the art and design the gallery wall.  She is a gallery wall master, so I just left her to her work and and...

One Room Challenge Week Four!

This week for the One Room Challenge I'm talking ART for Liv's Big Girl Room.  I have decided to go with a big galley wall because I have tons of excess art I need to place and I think it will be light, bright and cheery for her.  She told me she wanted 'Colorful Horns' so I grabbed these fallow deer horns and painted them.  I also thought it would be fun to do a version of the 'Livingston Family Crest' for her so I did this watercolor inspired by Liv.    When I was in first grade, my painting was selected to be made into greeting cards for Scottish Rite Children's Hospital in Atlanta.  The proceeds went to the hospital,...

One Room Challenge: Week Three!

This week we're talking about the beds and bedding in Liv's Big Girl Room for The One Room Challenge.  I was given a pair of my Grandfather's wrought iron twin beds which will go in Liv's room.   I fell in love with this fabric made by Blush & Blooms called Floral Grey and ordered it from and will have my seamstress make it into two dust ruffles for the twin beds.  I'm also wild about Willa Heart and her fun chinoiserie French and Cha Cha Pillow and want to get them for a topper on the bed.  For the next layer of pillows, I am currently loving scalloped white silhouettes, so I ordered a pair of these Belle Epoque Isabel Scalloped...
