Do you all remember me referring to a collaboration with another blogger extraordinaire for Baby Ian’s nursery? Well, while I was pregnant, I commissioned the lovely Charlotta Ward of Space of Inspiration to do two paintings for Baby Ian. If you didn’t know, Charlotta is an accomplished children’s artist.  I love that Charlotta took her time to find out the colour palette for the nursery so that she could use similar or complementary colours in the paintings.We communicated frequently during the process and her attention to details was meticulous.  However, what struck me most of all was the love with which she painted and Baby Ian was always foremost in her thoughts.

The paintings are much brighter  in person, plus I am not known for my awesome photography skills. Anyway, as you can see the paintings  aren’t even hung yet.  I picked them up from Michael’s (craft store) yesterday. I am still deciding where to hang them, but I was too excited and wanted to share them immediately!:-). However, once they’re hung and everything is in its place,  you will get a proper tour of Baby Ian’s nursery.

Do y'all notice the orange trend?. I just can’t help myself, plus it’s such a beautiful pop against the nursery wall colour. Contrast is always great in a nursery too.  I am beyond thrilled to have a piece of Charlotta in our home. I’ve always felt so connected to her even though we have only a virtual relationship. She exudes a heavenly aura and that is rare to find these days. Thank you Charlotta. Love you lots my friend. XX
