I have always had a love for the two things necessary to putting together a cosy house: a love for unique items that express my interests and passions AND a desire to shop! There are a few things I am particularly inclined to buy: pillows, baskets and wall art.
After our move last summer, my husband and I have been hard at work renovating our kitchen and living space. It was in need of a solid upgrade; moving from pickled peach cabinets and linoleum, paired with the world’s dirtiest carpet, to hardwood, white cabinets and a stunning steel grey backsplash. Here’s a taste.
We aren’t quite there yet, and spent time this past weekend hanging pictures. I have a few in my collection I am quite proud of. Two complimentary costume design drawings from days working in the theatre, and a new painting we bought at a gallery this past fall. We also have an original painting from my favourite artist, my dad.
It’s easy to find unique, stunning pieces of art where I live. But also equally easy to find amazing pieces online. Whether you are decorating your main living space as we have been, or finding art for a child’s room, here are a few of my favourite online finds.

And the best art of all – the ones painted by the little hands that matter most to you.
