I have always loved Etsy, but now that I am planning a wedding it has just become a staple site for me! So of course I am finding all sorts of wonderful shops, designers, craftsman, and ideas! Here is one site I found recently that I just love, Leslie Freeman Designs. I just her homemade ceramics, and I feel like these pieces would be such a great conversation piece and a wonderful quality to piece to have in any home! Here are some of my favorites…
Etsy. What a beautiful place, where creative people can come together to showcase there work. I wanted to start a new post called ETSY FAVORITE because I think Etsy is the PERFECT resource to find those perfect and unique touches to make a house a home. One of my favorite things about Etsy is you can find original artwork, inexpensive prints, and hand crafted pieces all together. StudioKMO is a store on Etsy that combines all three of these things!
Original artwork, and artwork in general, is the BEST way to decorate your space. This is especially true for those of us living in apartments or houses we rent, where we can’t paint the walls! StudioKMO makes AMAZING paper cut maps, original drawings, and prints, each mapping out a different city. Karen O’Leary, the owner of the studio, has over 30 cities available in paper cut maps and over 50 cities in her prints collection. Her work can be seen in hotels across the country (The Cosmopolitan Hotel, Las Vegas, Hyatt Hotel guestrooms, New Orleans, Louisiana, Four Seasons Hotel Restaurant, Washington, D.C.) in West Elm’s pre-Fall 2011 Catalogue, design magazines, thousands of private residences, and more!
Here is some of the FANTASTIC work that she does! Think about how amazing and unique these would be hanging in an office or study, even a first floor bathroom, or living room!
Here is to hoping she does one of Dallas or Cincinnati any time soon!
