New Art

I have really been feeling like there is a gap in the art market currently for affordable, framed large-scale art. Diptych pieces are great because the design is split (not one large overwhelming piece), but yet they can take up a good amount of space if you have a big wall to adorn. This "Follow Me" piece comes framed in white wood, black wood or print-to-canvas.

Before and After Powder Room

For the last 9 months, we have been using a half bath / powder room on our main floor that had no mirror, had a leaky faucet, unfinished walls, no toilet paper holder, no towel holder and a light fixture that came with the house. It was bleak, but with 2 children 21 months apart, most of our house renovation and decorating was on a backseat for a while after the birth of our second. Before we moved in, we did have wainscoting installed to dress up the space.

I finally got to tackling the wallpaper and installed a light and airy, on-trend design that ended up being super forgiving on our uneven and unlevel walls. You can source it directly here. I went with the Santorini woven in Subtle Blue. Finally, the mirror and light fixture went up. I went with a more modern faucet with some height. I didn't want the hassle of moving the existing light box up higher, so I went with an adjustable, vertical wall sconce that fit the space perfectly.

Progress Shots

I am excited to share a few progress shots of my Indigo Blooms wallpaper going up in a new bathroom. The loo and hallway are accented with the hand sketched and painted design. I am so excited to see the completed bathroom!

Art Deco Inspo

I saw this Vivienne Westwood rug in Architectural Digest the other day and I swooned. Simple, elegant, pretty. Well, the price tag was just a mere $10,422 for a 6'x9'. Choke.

The Art Deco design was not too far off from a hexagon starburst pattern that I had already designed in a series of blues. So, I thought I'd do the design in a pink and gold with cream inspired by Vivienne's Thistle Rug. Head on over to jenniferlatimer.com to purchase designs or click on each image.

Loving the Lumbar

This picture was a key inspiration for our master bedroom. But, trying to find a long lumbar in a fabric I liked was painful.

So, I set on a mission to create pillows in lumbar shape because there is a huge gap in the market today. All lumbars shown below are 14x24, but can be customized to any width/length, which I just did for an interior design firm in Chapel Hill, NC.
