Here we are, it is Wednesday again, which means it is time for another room in my home tour. This week due to my deadline filled schedule, I have picked the smallest room in the house. . . the hallway. This room has just one wall, the wall I am showcasing without a door. It connects the bedroom, bathroom, office/studio and the dining room so it is literally in the heart of the house. What better way to fill the heart than with photos of those who are closest and artwork made with love. This room is an homage to my daughter and me with bits and pieces of things that each of us have made, her gorgeous artwork and heart warming pieces from family and friends. Take the short 12 foot tour and I will give you the details at the end of the post.
DRAWINGS: Just a few years ago, Emily decided she loved to draw and away she went. The little green owl came first and the glorious drawing of the winged warrioress is something she drew for me within the last few years. I treasure both pieces. POTTERY: My mother was an amazing illustrator and potter. When her health came to a place that we knew her time was short, my sisters and I went through hundreds of her pottery pieces to divide them among the four of us. The three porcelain bowls and the lidded pot are a few of my favorites. PHOTOS: All are of Emily and me throughout the years. . . and one of Enzo of course. Some were shot by yours truly and the rest by three very talented photographers. Brian McDonnell, Stan Sinclair and my dear dad. PAPER CRAFTS & OTHER CRAFTY THINGS: You may recognize some of them. Most were created for posts on my former blog and for you here on this blog, including the sunshine quote and washi tape monograms. FELTY ENZO ART: This was a gift from another Emily who is a dear lady and talented designer. RUG: Wool rug brought to me from Turkey. CHAIR: Purchased at Home Goods. BOOKCASE: Bought at West Elm many years ago. FRAMES: Mostly Ikea frames. PAINT: Sherwin Williams Peppercorn (this paint is a one coat wonder).
