(Dallas showroom window display)
Remember back in April when I spilled the beans about my new partnership with Creative Co-op, a home decor company that would soon be launching my home decor line? I remember writing that post, filled to the brim with anticipation. I had seen the most of the new products by that time, but I wasn't sure yet how they would pull the entire collection together. I'd knew it would be good, but when I traveled to Dallas a couple of weeks ago to see it all in the showroom, my heart leapt. It was beautiful.
They named the collection "What makes your heart flutter?" after one of my recent paintings and displayed the collection in such a dreamy way that I wanted to move into the showroom, right then and there.
While in Dallas, I kept thinking back to the original dream I had - to one day work with this company and have a home decor line. I thought about the audacity of that dream, the naivety of that dream, yet there I was standing squarely and proudly in the middle of a beautiful collection, a dream actualized. I'm still having a tough time believing it!
Between the actual product and the beautiful supporting display pieces like the hanging lights, the hanging wings with sentiments taken from my paintings (words like "winged promise", "lovely life", "gentle kindness"), and more, I was blown away by their amazing hard work to bring it all together. Their team worked so very hard. I was pinching myself at every turn.
The creative director of Creative Co-op is a woman of major talent. Major. She came to my house, talked ideas, soaked in my style, my work, my sense of personal decor and created a home decor product line that feels exactly like me and exactly what I would purchase for my own home. I am counting my luckiest of stars to have worked with her and her innovative creativity.
Let me give you a tour! Some of these photos aren't the best, but you'll get the idea :)
This mirror is pretty awesome - it's been aged so that there's an image behind the heavily distressed mirror. Love. The hello courage with wings is a wall plaque - there are several of these! We wanted to bring artistic meaning to your home spaces....
Inspired by a project in my book, these are photo boxes (you can switch out the art for a personal photo) that are made to look like vintage books. Can't tell you how much these make my heart sing! Super creative and functional....
This is a large room divider piece made from mixed materials. How cool and unique is that?
The big giant wall piece on the left is a HUGE (five feet tall) magnetic message center/shelf. Swoon! I can't wait to put this in my kitchen - I have just the right spot for it. The patchwork dresser was inspired by the dresser I made for our entryway last year. Artwork above the dresser is also large and I love how it turned out!
One of my favorite pieces from the entire collection, this clock makes me wildly happy! Because our clocks need crowns and wings, right?
These decorative stoneware pieces are big and chunky and solid. Love how they turned out.
Can't wait to put these buckets on our front porch and in our house with flowers. I hope you love them, too!
The frames! The frames! Made from journal pages and backgrounds, I think these are awesome. They did such a great job combining my art with my love of all things vintage and distressed, I can hardly believe it!
That's a stack of book boxes - boxes made to resemble vintage books (love). The side table is just gorgeous and perfectly distressed.
We've got staplers, pill boxes, compact mirrors, trays, and so much more - all to help brighten your spaces with creative home decor pieces.....
The large girl on the wall is over 4 feet high and has a pouch for holding letters (can't see it in this photo). It's also magnetic to hold photos and such. Table holds photo frames, stoneware plates, aged pedestals, flower buckets, and more.
These suitcases are quite large (not travel large, but living room large) as are the tall french buckets.
Completely love this frame.
Pillows! We've got pillows - both with girls and without. Above is one of my faves...there's another pillow that says "hello, courage."
I think every home should have a shelf with wings that holds special treasures. The stackable boxes on the left are a show stopper - super sturdy and colorful.
I've never seen a functional bookend before and I'm loving how these turned out - perfect for home office.
The clock above the chair is also one of my faves. And let me just say this chair is oversized and so unique. And the wardrobe? Perfect for hanging sweet dresses....adorable!
We hope you love the collection! There are over 90 products - everything from clocks, to furniture, to frames, lamps, big wall pieces, and so much more! You will start to see these items in stores nationwide in the coming weeks and I'll have some of the smaller items in the online shop in a couple of months.
Creative Co-op, thank you for creating a collection that makes our hearts indeed flutter!
