i love seeing how talented people use their own creativity to create something beautiful in their home. burlington, vermont based artist carin lilly created this beautiful ‘imagine’ mural for her son amos’ room. carin designed the mural and painted it along with her husband, jess. carin based amos’ mural on the work of the late margaret kilgallen, who was interested in folk art, handpainted signs, and all things beautiful. when describing the imagery carin said, “i just wanted my son to wake up and smile at it everyday, hopefully absorbing inspiration.” the result is something so special that it never could have come from a box or kit. sometimes you just can’t beat handmade, diy artwork. thanks so much to carin for charing with us. i couldn’t resist adding her paintings in at the bottom, she’s a wonderful artist.
