I adore etsy. It’s so wonderful to be able to purchase custom and handmade items at the click of a button.
I love using etsy for finding unique pieces of artwork and my latest project for my littlest client has me searching high and low for the perfect pieces.
A while back I fell in love with the illustration on these journals:
The elephants had me at hello and I knew something similar would be the perfect fit in our nursery. So after discussing things with Oana we came up with a game plan for a custom piece.
Lovely, right? Excuse the blue square, but the piece has his name on it and it’s a surprise! I loved everything about it, but since I planned on enlarging the piece and framing it above the crib I thought we needed a bit more height so I asked Oana to add another animal. Jon loves monkey’s so that was the latest addition.
Ah perfection. Elephants with their trunks up for good luck, peacocks above them in honor of Jon’s last name, Pavone, which means peacock in Italian and then Jon’s favorite animal, monkeys! With the elephants in the room and the addition of stripes in the design plan we have a slight circus like theme with the room so Oana added a circus tent and balloons.
Now I just need to figure out what color I want the piece in and if I want a colored background and white illustration or white background and colored illustration. What would you do?
It looks like Oana is currently on vacation if you are interested in a custom watercolor/illustration you can email her at email@example.com
Any guesses on what we are naming baby boy? We have had it finalized for months now and I can’t wait to share it with you all!
P.S. Here at Effortless-Style we have our own artshop set up on etsy as well. We have been doing really well with it and even have a piece going up in a hotel! So cool. If you want to check it out click here.
