Friday, I unveiled my family room for the Taylor Burke Home “Style It” Challenge with sponsors One Kings Lane, Addison Weeks, Lacefield, Mitchell Black andTimes Two Designs. I was so honored to participate in this fun challenge with Kristin Jackson of the Hunted Interior and Kristin Cadwallader of Bliss at Home. The challenge was to style some pretty awesome items that are all products available through the Taylor Burke Home‘s gorgeous Atlanta Showroom. The first order of business was to choose a London ottoman in a fabric of our choice then pick from the other sponsors to create a lovely well-styled room. I felt like a kid in a candy store choosing items from these companies. I’m happy with the results and my family enjoying our cold winter nights in this room by a warm roaring fire. Thank you to the sponsors for providing beautiful, well-made products for our family room.
On the other side of the room is art by a favorite new artist discovery named Hayley Mitchell. I discovered Hayley back in July when I purchased one of her originals entitled “May Day” while shopping in Slate Interiors one day. No one seemed to know who the artist was so I searched high and low to find out. I posted my newly acquired “May Day” on my instagram feed and the next thing I knew everyone was as in love with Hayley’s work as I was and began snatching up her work from instagram before she could even post in her etsy shop. I knew I wanted a larger painting of Hayley’s work and this wall in my family room seemed like the perfect place! If you would like to purchase a Hayley Mitchell works of art click here to order from her etsy shop. But if you want one of Hayley’s pieces I would suggest you follow her on instagram here Many of her pieces are sold on instagram before they even make it to her etsy shop. I love watching how this artist’s popularity has grown since that first post I made over six months ago. I would like to think I had something to do with Hayley’s popularity, but I think she was just destined to be famous and it was timing that I discovered her early on. Hayley’s work is so vibrant and fun! I love her abstracts as well as her florals, but the faces remain my favorite of her subjects. Make sure to visit her shop to see more! I’m quite sure this artist is destined for great things. Buy her work now while you can still afford her!
The small painting of goldfish above the abstract on the right is by my
friend, and artist, Jill Seale of Charlotte.
