It may be rainy and gross here in DC today, but I’m not letting that stop me from getting into the holiday spirit! I think this illustration of the Blue Room in the White House is the perfect way to kick off December. Would you believe that the artist is none other than the beautiful and stylish Jacqueline Kennedy? As if we needed another reason to love her…
The lovely Patricia of PVE Design recently posted this illustration of her fall favorites and I just can’t stop staring so I had to re-post. Her blog is one of my daily reads and I’m sure it’s easy to see why. Thank you Patricia for reminding me of all the great things about fall. If only it would stop raining here in DC so I can enjoy them!
Tory Burch’s feature on Caitlin McGauley’s ten favorite things about summer is too great not to share. I’m a huge fan of her watercolors and am so happy to see her recognized by the ever stylish Tory. I was excited to see that we share more than a few summer favorites. Seafood dinners and picking berries just to name a few… sound familiar?
Today, I wanted to share the incredibly adorable illustrations of UK based artist Clare Owen. I’ve been following her blog for awhile now and am always excited to see a new post because I know it’s going to be something beautiful.
I’ll let her work speak for itself:
She made these little hearts using a potato!
When I first spotted Happy Menocal’s watercolors over at Matters of Style I just knew I had to add one to my own home. The bright colors and oh-so-serious expressions on their faces just made me smile. Happy was an absolute pleasure to work with and quickly had my matador en route to me.
Here he is waiting to be hung:
If you like Happy’s work you can purchase originals at Jonathan Adler’s store in NYC. Happy tells me they are beautifully framed. I hope to get there in the future to check them out!
